It's a New Day!

Happy Friday!  As some of you know, Wednesday was my last day at the full-time job I've held for 17 years.  But, my days of being unemployed are already over as I was just offered a part time job--yah!  Some of the days are even in the town where I live, so only a 5 minute commute.  I don't think I have to start for a couple weeks, so now I'm on vacation--what could be better?!  We ended up with 5 inches of snow Thursday morning--really shocking here, but so beautiful!
On to cardmaking--needed a guy's birthday card so first stamp I thought of was my Hero Arts Silhouette Grass.  I inked it with Distress Ink wild honey, spritzed with water & stamped on wc paper a couple times.  Then the same thing with scattered straw.  It's cut with Nestie Labels Eight & then sponged with antique linen & mounted to a kraft card base cut with the same Nestie.  I used the Hero Arts Envelope Pattern stamp on the bottom of the card with vintage photo ink.  The greeting is Colorbok stickers on a piece of green textured cardstock cut into a banner with 2 rows of holes using the Tim Holtz ruler & mounted with foam tape.  Thanks for visiting--I appreciate all of you!
