on BFFs

To my sister and her family - and now the cards hit the mail to hopefully make it to their intended recipients by Valentine's Day! We rec'd a mixture of snow and ice last night and this a.m. and the temp has been too low for the de-icers to work their magic so far. My DH went out to get gas for my car (isn't he a sweetie?!) and returned with a road condition report. Seems the sub was in better shape than the main roads as they were at least snow-covered. Cars were having trouble on the main drag making it up the slight incline that goes over the freeway. Even the local township's salt-spreader/plow he saw on his way back home skid into an intersection! Sigh ... I decided to sit tight for a bit and so pulled out some card supplies. I found this selection of DP among my stash while en route to find some OTHER DP ... it's a sampling of similar colors DP from two different vendors, but they play nicely with each other, don't you think?! It uses the current CPS card sketch from their 5th anniversary celebration.

stamps: Waltzing Mouse's Sweetheart (inside sentiment); paper: imaginisce and My Mind's Eye DPs; ink: Ranger's black soot and aged mahogany distress inks; tools: Fiskar's Threading Water border punch
