and making some cards again! Believe it or not, these cards began life as the basic layout for Thanksgiving cards last November. Seriously. Then Christmas came along and I had cards to make for that and well, you know how things get pushed aside. I dug this old Hello Spring! stamp out of my stash the other day and decided to put these cards to good use. Nothing fancy - I glued the green background to ivory card stock. I stamped the image on white card stock and then colored selected sections with watercolor pencils. I experimented with watercolor crayons, but I wasn't happy with the colors. I finished them off with a sage ribbon threaded through two holes punched in the top center of the card. I was pretty happy with the way they turned out - and inside is a timeless quote from Ward Cleaver: You're never too old to do goofy stuff.
Now if that doesn't say spring, nothing does.
