I made a card yesterday. It's for my darling friend Mary. You'd love her. She's one of the sweetest people on earth, I swear! She was to take me out for dinner this past Saturday, but a YKW made an appearance, and that was the end of that. Instead, she dropped off a dozen peach colored roses and promises to attempt dinner once more soon! It's my fondest prayer for you all to have a friend like Mary. I made her a special Thank You card. And while I was at it, I thought I play along over at the Little Tangles Challenge. Take a look at their latest color palette:
How pretty is this?!! With all of the rich fall tones out there, this one was a refreshing change of pace.
My card looks like this:
It's really pretty irl. The base and white panel are from Bazzill, and the pink, yellow, and gray are scraps. And you know, I keep digging in my scrap box of card stock, but it never seems to go down! Wonder what happens when the lights go out in here.... I used, of course, Neat & Tangled stamps, Memento London Fog ink, and some sequins bought at my local 5 & dime store. Inside is blank so I can write some really special thoughts for Mary. And now, it's time for me to get cleaned up, and wait for my friend Karen to pop over with a cup of coffee.We'll have a little coffee klatch, after which she'll go back to work, and I will play a bit more, and enjoy life. I know it's Monday, but do find something to do a happy dance about...well worth it!
