sweet thoughts of you

I love this pretty image from Magenta. I stamped this image several times in different tones of distress inks. I found that the darker walnut stain showed the image clearly, but I was taken with the faded shade of vintage photo. I loved the feeling of having to hold the card closer to examine the details. I thought it somehow brought a warmth to the card.

We still have a covering of snow. I love to see all of the foot prints the animals and birds leave in the snow. I noticed fox prints throughout the winter. I am hoping to see a family of fox again this spring. The young fox are adorable, they all seem to have their own personality.

I look forward to spending time after work looking at all of the beautiful cards everyone is creating! Thank you so much for visiting. Have a wonderful week!
