I hope the year is off to a good start for you! We can only hope that 2022 is far better than the past couple of years as far as normalcy is concerned. To help keep myself sane, I'm having fun on my new design team spot over on the Inspiration Station Challenge blog.
Here's today's inspiration . . .
Please remember, to be eligible for the Prize, you will need to *Let us know on your blog or Social Media Post how the Photo Inspired You*.
When I saw this image, my first thought was sitting with one of my long time friends sipping on a cup of hot chocolate and just chit chatting. She & I have been friends for more than 50 years and I can't tell you how much her friendship means to me. She's a true treasure! So, I decided it was time I sent her a 'surprise' in the mail ... hence today's card.
- I started out by creating my background panel using Tim Holtz Oxide Distress inks. Then I splattered on some 'snow' using an artist brush & white acrylic paint that was thinned out with water.
- From my scrap box I spotted this extra strip of buffalo plaid paper that was left over from my sister's Christmas card and thought it would work perfectly. I did tear it in half for a rugged edge and now I have another piece for another card.
- My cocoa mugs, die cut from another scrap of holiday paper are from Impression Obsession called 'Coffee & Cocoa' (DIE882-V)
- The sentiment comes from a Simon Says Stamp set called 'Thoughtful Messages' (SSS101740).
I do hope you will pop over to Inspiration Station!
