Winter has begun here with some light snow and ice, so I figured I'd get out some floral stamp sets for the winter months.  I have a birthday stamp that says, "Always maintain a kind of summer even in the middle of winter." by Henry David Thoreau.  This year, I'm taking that seriously!

This card was done with the Stampin'Up set, "Painted Petals."  After stamping the flowers and sentiment, I splattered some green ink on the panel and mounted it as shown.

One positive thought about winter:  now that the leaves have fallen off the trees, the sun shines through even brighter.  I truly enjoy spending afternoons by the window in my "tower" which is on the west side of the house.
