A Rainy Start for the SOTC
Today's post features my card for January's Sisterhood of the Travling Cards. Our hostess was Maryann (mastuff) and her theme was New Year's Day wake-up weather.
The Greeting Farm. She's colored with Copics and snazzed up just a little with pearl "buttons" on her coat and hat.
Even though she's all smiles, I didn't want the card to feel like a "downer", so I chose some floral papers in K and Co.'s Amy Butler Lotus Faded China collection. The colors represented what I saw looking out the window that day: dark gray clouds, peeks of blue sky now and then, and the yellowish-green of last-year's needles on the neighbor's white pine trees.
We might have started the year warmer than normal, but the rest of January and early February gave us our typical snowy, windy, cold weather. Even though Punxsutawney Phil didn't see his shadow and the forecast calls for temps in the 50s this week, we're certainly not out of the woods yet. Remember March 1993?? But I am oh-so ready to ditch my winter wool coat and break out the spring clothes!
Thanks for visitng today! Have a great day!
