Yeah! Happy Saturday! Thank god that week is done. It really did feel like the longest week ever. I wasn’t the only one who felt that way, I took a poll. So it snowed here most of the day yesterday. I think the total was 8 inches but the funny thing was after 12:00PM the more it snowed the less there was on the ground. I don’t think I have ever seen that before. I’m looking forward to the warmer temperatures this week. I don’t have any plans for this weekend, just going to lay low and get some crafting done, how about you?
Today’s post is for a card that I made to send to my Aunt in England. She is a wonderful person, very kind and generous. I needed a card that would be able to make the journey so I had to keep the embellishments to a minimum. I also thought that something English on the card would be fun. The base of the card is Very Vanilla Card Stock. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the border from the Sent with Love Stamp Set in Riding Hood Red. The stamps on the card are from a long retired set called Office Ephemera. I got it from ebay a while ago, mainly for the script and stamp images. I stamped them in Sahara Sand randomly. The phone box is from the Feeling Sentimental Stamp Set from Sale-A-Bration and is stamped in Basic Black and cut out with the Ovals Framelits. The greeting is form the Oh, Hello! Stamp Set and is stamped in Riding Hood Red with the right side flagged. Both the oval and the greeting are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the border from the Sent with Love set and the way it gives the card that airmail feel. I hope that you enjoyed my Trans-Atlantic Thank You and thank you f0r stopping by today! Here’s to an very enjoyable Saturday!
