Peaceful Pines


 So I have been on a mission to fill a box with cards to send to Operation Write Home. I am still working on it. I am starting to think I should have picked a smaller box though! There are currently 75 cards in the box and I could probably get another 50-75 more in there!

I am actually working days this month (11am-11pm) in my new job at Sanford Bemidji ER, but next month I will be working nights. I imagine I will end up doing more stamping when I only have a couple days off. It just doesn't make sense to switch my sleeping schedule for such a short time. Frankly, it is like torture for me! I am not really a night person. I get crabby at home. Ask my family..... sorry guys!


I hope these colors don't look bad together. I keep looking at this and loving it, but I just can't help think that Always Artichoke and Pool Party are not supposed to go together! I sponged the Pool Party first, then stamped the rest. I ended up pulling out a couple of retired sentiments for it too.
  • Stamps: Watercolor Winter, Peaceful Wishes, Star-Studded Season
  • Ink: Always Artichoke, Early Espresso, Pool Party
  • Paper: Always Artichoke, Early Espresso, Whisper White
  • Other: Sponge, Signo white gel pen, Early Espresso ¼" Stitched Grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals


I hope I left enough room for a message on the inside, I think I got a little carried away :)

Now, I want some honest opinions about this color combo!

I guess it would be cheating to just say ditto to what everyone else said, but they are spot on. Great colors, great layout, great everything!

WOW - what a gift you are creating! That is a lot of cards and your's are always so well done.
Thanks for sharing this card. I just may have to case it. My hubby asked me to make cards for him to use (at work) and this design would be perfect. :)
