Finally!! A New Card...

It may not be one of my best... it's very simple, but it's a new card from me none-the-less. I have so many thank you's to send out - the neighbors up here have been wonderful! I used some cards that I already had made up, but one of my neighbors (Ed) deserved a special masculine version. Ed plowed our driveway twice during the big storm when we first arrived. He was a true lifesaver! So I pulled out whatever supplies I have managed to find so far and whipped this up for him.

You'll notice that I had to use some patterned paper from LONG ago... I'm not even going to look up what it is... it's so old that it's not even double-sided. I haven't yet unearthed my new DSPs (the horror!), so I thought this would do the trick. I was hoping that I could be forgiven given the circumstances. :)

This stamp comes from the new Totally Tool set... I think that's the name of it - it's late and I'm so tired that I haven't the energy to look it up either. Gee, Colorado has made me lazy! Leave me a comment if I got it wrong, please. In any case, I'm glad this one was at the top of the box I opened, otherwise, good ole' Ed might've gotten a thank you card with a big blue bird on it.

Now, just because I've made this one card, please don't expect the floodgates of Michele's creativity to burst open and drown you all... quite the contrary. I began homeschooling the kids on Monday and between teaching them and corralling my 2 year old, it's proving to take up most of my allotted daily energy! I'm ready to hit the bed as soon as I turn out their lights. Ah well, maybe it's the elevation. :)

Hugs to all,

Card Recipe (and no high-altitude instructions necessary):
Stamp Set: Totally Tool
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Cardstock: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, and some unknown DSP from L-O-N-G ago... anything will work, just make it match.
Accessories: Linen Thread

I am so glad you are cheerful and loving Colorado! Your card is way cute and I know Ed, the plowman, loved it! Enjoy all that snow and playing with your boys -- they will be gone before you blink!
