warm wishes on a warm january day

....here in the burg
Earlier this week I would have said it felt like an
ice-burg. It was so stinkin cold! Today a totally unseasononable day. Sunny and in the 60's I guess. I'm going to enjoy it as long as it lasts.
Anyway -
I wanted to make a card for a friend who is ill.
I saw a lovely card challenge via my friend Amy's blog. Amy is the Guest Designer for January at i{heart}2stamp and Amy made a lovely card (Amy only knows how to make lovely cards) and I thought I'd take a crack at that challenge. So here it is. I had pop-dotted the sentiment and finally gave up on scanning it as I couldn't get a straight scan - apparently I can't get a straight photo either!
I used some textured white cardstock I found at ACMoore, some snowflake vellum I had hanging around, my marvy punches, a hand held punch; SU! mat pack (yes June I finally played with it!) and sentiment stamp (from SU! All Year Cheer I set -retired) and silver cord; versamark and white ep.
I have a few thank you's I made last week I'll be posting tomorrow. Now I'm off to watch Amazing Race. It'll be a nice break from the CNN ballot bowl we've been watching most of the day- I enjoy the politics but it's enough for one day.

A total beauty. Love the pretty snowflakes with the blue background...so wintery!!! Hope you are enjoying all the warm goodness. I think all that cold could get to be a bit much after a while.

Are you at Disney, too? No! So why did I stop checking your blog, too, when June left? LOL. You two are a pair on my blog list. Right at the top, too... my first "blog friends." Anyhoo, I missed this post last week. Beautiful card. Love what you did with Jen's sketch. Those nestabilities are workin' for you! You may have posted this on a 60 degree day, but I'm looking at it now while watching real snowflakes fall outside my window. Funny how fast things change. Thanks for the mention, too. I don't know about only knowing how to make lovely cards ... I just know when to post 'em, know when to trash 'em. I think I'm hearing some sort of faint Kenny Rogers melody in the background now, lol. Know when to walk away, know when to run. I think I better run now. Does Blogger have a limit on comment length, or will they let me keep yakkin' forever?
