Well this is the first official Wednesday Evening Post for 2013. Happy New Year everyone! Anybody make any resolutions??? I made the same one this year that I did last year. . .I resolved not to make any resolutions this year! It worked for me last year so why not stick with it huh?
I am going to try to try some different things this year with my cardmaking that I normally wouldn't do. Which leads us to our example for this post. . .take a look:

I always look at what the Wednesday Tutorial is on Splitcoast Stampers each week. I always say to myself "Hmmm, that looks interesting. . .I think I'll try that this week." But like almost every week I say that, I don't try it. Well I did this week. The card is called a "Flip Down Stack Card", and I love cards that move. You can find the tutorial HERE. Mark from DEADBEAT DESIGNS sent me the whole set of his new bird stamps for Christmas (Thank you so much, Mark!). You can see his samples HERE. I had originally thought I would use them for a note card set, but when I saw the SCS tutorial I knew they would be perfect. The card measures 9 1/4 X 4 and fits into a standard #10 business envelope. The birds were colored with watercolor pencils.
I did manage one note card:
I also wanted to show you how Mark addressed the package to me:
I'm working on some other cards using some wonderful stamps that my other fabulous blogging buddy Chris from Mudmaven Designs sent me. Those will be highlighted next week!
As a lot of you heard, we here in central Indiana had a blizzard the day after Christmas. I thought I would share a couple of pics from that storm:
