Late Winter, Early Spring Greetings


I didn't do Valentines this year. I didn't have any inspired ideas. Then just the other night I looked at some paper that I had hung up in the studio that Bill had wrapped an anniversary gift in for me this year. Hmmm. I cut up the paper and played around a little with it and made twenty Late Winter Early Spring Greetings cards. I do love to send cards out. I love to make them and address them and send them on their way. So did my mom. In fact, I thought of her a lot as I worked on these cards. I actually squeezed behind our bed, where I have my mother's vast rubber stamp collection stored, and I pulled out a few stamps and some red ink to use in this project. Kind of fun to use. The only hard part of the project was to edit my list down to just twenty. I could have easily sent fifty or more, if I had had the supplies and the time.

Do you have the stamp that I bought Annie. It is of Willie. I would dearly love to see it again.
Love you.

Oh, I have so many questions about how you made the cards but I would not want to take away from the mystery of their beauty. They are just splendid. I wish I had such a talent.
