Spring is here by calendar if not by weather: 13 F this morning and several inches of dense snow a couple days ago are proof enough of that. But the sun was out when I left work today, and it was a warm sun, so hope is alive!
I made the card last month for a cousin who turned 50, then forgot to send it to him (he'll still be receiving it - family knows I procrastinate). My favorite technique lately has been to re-use ads and magazine pages on my cards. The chicken was cut from an ad, then adhered over a photo-print designer paper (sunset). I stamped the curly shapes on orange and pink paper and layered them over the chicken where there was advertising I didn't want to show. The sentiment was PC-generated and then cut out in the sun shape. I used a glitter gel pen to highlight a few places.
