Welcome! Does it feel like Spring yet where you are? Yesterday felt enough like Spring here for us to take two walks, but I think we may have snow again soon. Still, I'm definitely being bitten by the Spring-cleaning bug, so Spring must be on the way! In expectation of warmer days, I played with some brighter colors today, using JustRite's Burlap Chevron Background Cling Stamp.
I kept both of my cards really simple. Somehow burlap seems to need simplicity, though the chevron twist adds a trendy factor to the Burlap Chevron Background Cling Stamp. I used two different sentiments from the Grand Handwritten Sentiments clear stamp set.
So, the back story. . . I had made the "Miss You" card first, and I wasn't sure that I liked it. Instead of re-inking the Burlap Chevron Background stamp, I just spritzed my still-somewhat-inky stamp with water and re-stamped it on a second piece of kraft cardstock. I liked the second card, the "Hello" card, better than the "Missing You" card. But when my fifteen-year-old saw both cards, he liked the "Missing You" card much better. Hmmmm. . . That's how I came to post both cards--take your pick! ;-)
