Winter Wishes


No I am not crazy - well okay maybe a little - but it is 94 outside and there is no break in sight from the temps for at least the next week so I thought a winter card would help cool me off!!! Not real good logic but this was a fun card to make - I love Mice Day - and I have had an idea for this winter coat for a while - the safety pin worked perfect and I think just added a sweet touch. She is colored with copic markers, oval is a nestie as well as the banner with the sentiment. Then my friend Pat and I had coupons for Martha Stewart 40% off - that does not happen often. Well Pat wasn't with me so my DH stood in line with one coupon and I with another and we got these too cute double punched borders. This one is going home with Pat and I have a flower/vine one that is too cute - I am sure you will see it soon. I had to make sure Pats worked so I punched out a border for my card - and yes Pat it does work nicely.

I love having my very own Quality Control Department Head!!! I absolutely adore your card, and you and DH picked out the most perfect of punches! Cannot wait to see YOURS!!! I appreciate your taking the time to test this punch out for me (lol...) and hopefully, I can return the favor sometime! Hugs!!!

What a sweet card. . .the safety pin is a cute touch. I was kind of snickering picturing your poor husband standing in line to purchase a MS punch! God love him. . .Best, Curt
