Will the groundhog see his shadow?

Happy Groundhog’s Day!  Last weekend we were in the 40’s and the snow was gone.  We woke up to 4 inches of snow on Saturday.  Sunday it was minus 10!  What a difference in one week!

Today is my niece’s 15th birthday!  Happy Birthday Macy!  If I had been thinking I would have posted a birthday card for her today.  Except – I haven’t made the card or bought the gift yet!  Aren’t I the terrible Aunt?!!

For the next couple of weeks I will be posting Valentine’s cards.  Tis the season (for sweetheart candy!).  Is it bad that I define the holidays by my love of the candy related to that season?  Oy!!

Today’s card is all about nontraditional colors.  I rarely use crisp cantaloupe and occasionally use calypso coral so I combined them on this card and am quite pleased with the result. 1 (549x640)I ran the cantaloupe paper thru a PTI guidelines impression plate.  I used the PTI rustic wreath and ran it through some cork to get a bit of a different look.  I used my expressions thinlets and die cut LOVE several times in both colors.  A bit of twine and pearls and that completes the card.  At the last second I decided to add a sticker from my February Simon Says Stamp card kit to the upper right hand corner.  As I said, I was pleased with the end result! 2 (640x373)Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies:  CS:  SU! calypso coral, crisp cantaloupe.  MFT cork.  Dies:  PTI rustic wreath and guidelines impression plate.  SU! expressions thinlets.  Other:  SU! crisp cantaloupe twine and linen thread.  Pearls.  SSS February card kit stickers.
