I'm finding it easier and easier to participate in these super fun challenges. And the more I participate, the more I love the cards I create!!! This is the second card I created for my sweet friend I mentioned in my previous post. She needed a graduation card for a friend of hers graduating in early education. I'm not sure if this is what she was looking for, so I might end up making another card before I send them her way. I had envisioned a card a little on the juvenile side with some sweet pastel colors and cute ribbon for the occasion. Either way, I love the colors that I ended up using - so bright and summer-ey!
I can't believe I used three, count that, THREE patterned papers with this card!! Un-heard of in my world! I'm lucky if I end up using one patterned paper and a fancy ribbon, but I finally went for it and used three sheets of patterned paper out of my new DCWV Citrus Stack I bought last week. I am in love with this paper and find myself making excuses to use every piece in this pack. The stamp is from my current favorite collection - the $1 bin at Michael's, along with the ribbon. So - what do you think?
Work has been pretty crazy lately. I know I haven't really talked much about work other than that trip the DH and I took to Cali in January. I promise I'll get to it since I really do love my job and dont mind talking about it at all. But with the addition of a few new items at work, the soon approaching move to the new house, and a few random life altering events going on, I've found myself longing for a vacation away from everything these days. But alas - I can't escape my life just quite yet; maybe after we're all settled in the new house. After all, the mark to celebrate 3 years of wedded bliss is quickly approaching and even though we won't be celebrating it on the exact day this year (which will be the day after move-in day), maybe we'll be able to take a vacation of some sort shortly after to celebrate our anniversary along with the addition of our new home.
