One Card Style - 3 Variations

Just wanted to share a quick post with you to demonstrate how one card style can be transformed into many variations...here are my 3 versions of one card:

Version #1 of the card is the simplest - sorry but my scanner didn't pick up the crimped detail on the ivory cardstock bands very well!

Now for version # 2 of the card, which includes a stamped key image:

And lastly, here's version #3 of the card which includes a heart element and stamped swirl:

We are still digging out of all of the snow we received last week and are expected to get 10 to 12 more inches tonight and tomorrow - UGH! I am soooooo ready for spring! Although the main roads are fairly clear, school has been closed since last Tuesday because the neighborhood roads are still so bad. Our district administrative offices, (many of which are year round employees - including me), were also closed last Tuesday through Friday, but were open yesterday and today. I'm not sure if the admin offices will be open tomorrow or not...it all depends on how bad the roads get and if it's too dangerous for us to travel to work. We have 5 snow days built into our school calendar, and have used 9 days as of today, so we'll have to make up days to get all of our instructional time in.

I keep looking at gardening magazines and dreaming of warmer weather...can hardly wait to get some flowers planted around my yard again!! Even though we just got through January it seems like winter has gone on forever...I'm so tired of everything looking drab and colorless!

Take care and stay warm!!



  1. Very pretty! Sounds like another day off tomorrow! But I totally understand - enough is enough!
    Hang in there!

  2. Fab cards!!! And did you say MORE snow?!! Good grief...mother nature needs to give you a break!
