Hi my name is Gina, and I really am still alive! Wow, for the most part, I took a week off. I was doing ‘other’ work and not making cards or doing any of the things that I normally do this last week, I am so glad to be back to ‘normal’. read more
Now that the snow has melted here I seem to be a bit more willing to use these beautiful snowflake stamps. Is it weird that even looking at them the last couple of weeks have made me colder than I already am? I had a series of books that I would read in the heat of summer because they were set in Colorado and it was almost always snowing in them. I have become an absolute wuss when it comes to temperature.
I have been racking my brain to come up with an ideal for a winter birthday card. The problem comes with having a winter birthday and not liking most of the things that come with it. Having been snowed in way to many times, and actually currently as well, I wanted to stay away from making it just about snow. So, I went with a little snow, because of well a penguin. Penguins appreciate snow on their birthday!
This just needed to be a bit silly to me. I have sent out all of my official Christmas cards, but I still have some that I want to make. I was going to take a break from making cards and get some other much needed stuff done, but that doesn’t seem like much fun, so I am planning on just making a couple of cards that I really want to and still trying to get the other stuff done. We will see what actually happens…
I was talking to my husband about how this year I keep saying “this is (insert nephew/nieces name) card”, this one I did the same thing with one of the nephews and his response was “Oh, yeah it is.” I love how each kid is reflected in at least one of the cards I have made this season. Actually they are in several of the cards in lots of different ways, but there is at least one that is there card.
