My mom sent me some socks -- thick, warm, soft knee-length washable wool socks. As far as we're concerned that's pretty much the Holy Grail of sockness, especially at this time of year.
So I thought I should make her a sock-y thank-you card. Now, I don't have any sock stamps (note to self: acquire sock stamps), but I do have a Christmas set with a stocking in it, and that seemed close enough.
It also provided an opportunity to try out all the new blue inks in the Deep Sea queue got recently. I stamped with abandon! Well, okay, with some caution: I heat-set the ink between most of the layers.
Then, ta-da, I had an excuse to go buy some blue paper. Clearly the center needed blue, not turquoise!
I am very pleased with it.
I'm entering this thank-you card in the following challenges:
- The Cupboard Trilogy #6: Frosty Winter (frosty winter colors -- and who can resist warm socks in the cold winter?)
- Natalie and Amy: Winter Wishes (wintery colors and nice warm socks)
- Ladybug Crafts 4: Christmas or Winter (wintery colors and nice warm socks)
- Penny Black and More @ Allsorts: It's Your Choice
