Hello Again

Brrr...  It is still cold, as a matter of face  we have  freezing rain, sleet  creating ICE...then  several inches of fresh  snow falling today...Add those nasty winds  and  yep  another  NASTY  winter day in the midwest

So here I am,  playing in  my  craft room   : )

I  am using  a few  things  from our monthly challenge...  The first  card is  on whisper white  card stock by SU...with a sheet of dp from Michaels ~ I thought it looked springy  and it matched  the flowers  I found there too .
I used the SU circle punch and their scallop circle  punch to   host the  sentiment  ~  This card  is because I missed a birthday  for a sweet  sweet  lady...  my beautician.    On the inside , it will say  Sorry I  missed your  special day...Many special wishes  today and every day of this upcoming year ...
 And the second one is using  just a small strip of that same  dp   and  the card base  and matting  are in Calypso Coral by SU.   I rounded  3 corners on the sentiment  which is a  clear stamp by  Fiscars.  I  rounded  2 corners of the card base  to follow that flow  .I  used SU circle punch again  with the scallop punch   and  used white  gel pen  to add dots to help  make that scallop  circle   show up better...  I decided  to keep this  clean and simple...This  is an encouragement card  for  some one  just going through  a rough time...  the inside sentiment  is  " I thought a cupcake might help "
And  again  the scan is  just not quite  right.. Calypso Coral  is such a  soft pretty shade   not too   bright
But I am not complaining, at least  I  got these  scanned in and  transferred...Woo Hoo

So  2  for 2 attempts today...  and I thought spring like thought   even tho  it is still all white and wintery  here.

                                           As always,  thanks  for  stopping by the PORCH...
                                             I am still serving  hot beverages  of your
                                                        Hope to see you again soon...
                                                                 Bye Bye  for  now

                                                                        ~   Sonja  ~
