Summer snowflakes {Gina K Designs}

Well? Are you ready? The days are ticking by at warp spread - seriously, how is it already December 12th? No - how is it already December 13th!!??? Funny how I thought my son had a week, plus a half before school gets out. Turns out it's only the HALF of a week. Umm - YIKES. Thanksgiving being so late this year has REALLY messed with me. I finally got the rest of my calendars printed, that we give to our families, but I am not exactly sure they will be here in time to mail to our long-distance relatives! (OOPS.) 

But onward to a card for the day. . . .
I absolutely love this snowflake stamp from Gina K Designs set, Blessed is the Season, and for today's card I paired the snowflakes with some not-so-snowflaky colors! Kinda fun, huh? I used two different colors of ink (Stampin' Up Calypso Coral, and Tsukeniko Mango Madness I think!) and blended them together on my stamp with a sponge dauber (basically a little sponge that fits on your finger.) When stamping more than one color on a stamp, always start with the lightest color first. Then tap the edges of the stamp in the darker color, and blend with the sponge. When I was done, I used the remaining ink on the sponge dauber to add color to the edges of my cardstock block. 

Okay - I really should go. My husband has these great dress shirts that don't need to be ironed as long as you pull them right out of the dryer. . . .I've put them through the dryer TWICE and forgotten them both times. Third times a charm? Here's hoping!

Have a beautiful day! Thanks so much for stopping by, my friends!!!!
