The wandering thoughts of a senior citizen who loves to make greeting cards.

This stamp (Chick-a-dee Blossoms) is from Penny Black in 1999. I've always loved it, but never made a card with it before. I stamped it in black ink on white cardstock and colored it with Prismacolor pencils, then cut it out - the hard part.
It seemed like it needed to be on a sky background. I tried embossing it for texture, but couldn't stamp the message, so I used another piece of cardstock for that. I like it better with the message stamped directly on the sky background. The message stamp is from a set by Hero Arts.
