I don't cook on Wed. nights. I made that my night off. Everyone (all three of us adults) are on our own. My hubby usually makes himself salmon. I don't cook or eat fish. Yuck!
Anyway, I didn't even eat right away. I rushed down to my room and started making a get well for my friend. She's a very bright and colorful person so that's why I chose the colors I did. I used an old set of SU dps (forget the name). The cs is SU Old Olive and Cool Carribbean, odd combo, I know. I always have trouble matching up the orange in this paper. It's not Pumpkin Pie and it's not Only Orange. I also tried Groovy Guava but that wasn't it either. I gave up. I did a little bit of sponging and I know that's probably out but I prefer it over all white. Not my best but here it is.
After that I went about trying to figure out what kind of card to make for my cousin who just got engaged. I had a hard time because my usual engagement congrats is either two hearts tied together or "A toast to you" with champagne glasses. I did this for his sister and didn't want to repeat. So....after all that chatter, here's my card. I made it very muted because it reminds me of them - very neat and classic, not bold and colorful. Do you do this when you make cards? I obsess over what the person is like and what they would want. Crazy! (used the new SU dps from SAB, Kraft cs and ribbon because I didn't have Sahara Sand. Congrats is CTMH, glitter flowers are Heidi Swapp, pearls are Hero Arts.
