So Kind

With Sale-a-Bration going on, I have a feeling I'm going to be needing a few more thank you notes than usual. So I went through my stamp stash to see what was available. One of the first sets that caught my eye was Priceless which I hadn't used in quite awhile. Now seemed to be the time to get it out and give it a good inking! But the next question would be - what colors should I use? Because it's snowing and really cold outside, I thought the basic colors in the Celebrations DSP would remind me of snuggly hats and mittens and playing outside in the snow. I'd been thinking of using the heart from the Priceless set, but changed my mind. To warm things up a little, I chose the butterfly stamp from the set instead. Bet you didn't know my thinking was so convoluted when planning out a card, did you???
Stamps: Priceless stamps and Whimsy Jumbo Wheel
Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Real Red, Old Olive, and Whisper White with Celebrations Designer Series Paper
Ink: Bashful Blue, Real Red
Accessories: Jumbo Handle, 2-Way Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds, Old Olive 5/8" Satin Ribbon, and Dimensionals

I'm a little disappointed that I couldn't get a good picture of the swirly design of the wheel to show up nicely on the red cardstock. I took a half dozen pics and threw them all away. (so happy to have a digital camera instead of wasting film!!!)
Hope you like the idea I've shared with you. It's pretty basic, but then most ideas are you know. Remember it's just SIPS - stamps, ink, and paper after all!
So now go on and get all snuggly and stamp a thank you note or two. You never know when you're going to need them.
Have a great weekend. Sharon
