One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Staying in touch

I pulled out Winter wisteria, spring moss and aqua mist paper and stamped the snowflakes with versamark and then heat embossed with white filigree powder.  I die cut the cute little penguin and switched up the colors of the hats.  I think the three Aunts will enjoy this little winter hello card.  They are 93, 90 and 89 years YOUNG!  I love them dearly...they are so special to me and I have such wonderful growing up memories with them...sending a card once a month is my way of letting them know they are never far from my thoughts!


Oh and the inside?  Yes, I stamped some pretty snowflakes with the colored inks and used a cute little sentiment from Snowfall Additions for the inside of the card:  numbing fingers, frostbit nose...but, who cares? we love the snow!  We have only had a dusting of snow here in the Portland Oregon area and I for one am hoping for a good downpour to last ONE day...a day to sled, make snowmen and snow angels, then come inside by the fire and have hot chocolate and fresh chocolate chip cookies!!  And YES, I stamped a cluster of snowflakes on the front of the envie and also added a strip of washi tape to match...just sayin'...following the lead from Dawn on this weeks MIM!!
