Happy Groundhog Day!
Did you know there is an official website dedicated to the celebration of this momentous event in Punxsutawney, PA, where Phil, The Groundhog, will check out his shadow and predict whether Spring is on its way or another 6 weeks of winter? (www.groundhog.org)
Me, I'm hoping good ol' Phil's calling for Spring! And just to help him along, I've got a card showcasing the lovely Bird in Roses (F517) stamp - another of January's Stamp of the Month stamps.
I wanted a simple color scheme with the focus on the bird, so I went with black and white with a touch of red and blue. The border is made using Rose Intertwined Hearts (G450). Ink up just the top edge of the design and stamp around the card.
Hope you've been inspired to get out your Great Impressions stamps or pick up a few new ones (locate a store near you!) Psst! The Great Impressions online store will be up and running very soon...and when it does there will be some challenge fun going on here! Just thought you might like to know...
(Update: Nope, I didn't stay up to watch the webcast, but I did just check to see what Phil had to say...according to our furry friend - Six more weeks of winter! Which I suppose I can attest to as we are expecting a snow storm this weekend. Better get out the hot chocolate!)
Have a Great Thursday and stop by tomorrow to see what April's been up to...
