I am so excited, obviously since I couldn’t wait til tomorrow( the day I said I would officially be back), to be back at creating beautiful things and blogging about them!!
I spent hours in my craft room on Saturday afternoon – I struggled with where to start, so I decided to give the challenges on the internet a looksie and it worked!! Ironic, I know that my first post back should be from a challenge – but frankly that is where the inspiration came from and it was easy to meet this particular challenge because I have had this idea swimming around in my head for a while!
The challenge I am entering is over at CAS-ology, week 110: Letter
The card I ended up creating involved some masking and using bright colors –
I showcased each letter with a Perfect Plaid stripe masking each letter in the middle – this made each letter stand out as an important part of the whole! Anyway the idea had been floating around in my mind since I saw this pin right here! A shout out to Nichole Heady of Papertrey Ink for my inspiration!!
Smartly, I stamped up four of these cards with matching envelopes – the front of the envelope says hi! in the Tidy Alphabet and the envelope flap has the same 5 colored stripes as the card does!! I say smartly because I am running dangerously low on mailable birthday cards! It took some time but I am glad that as long as I had all the stuff out I decided to create more than one!! I hope you found some inspiration here today and hope you find a way to make something beautiful (or cute) today!!
Also adding this card to these two challenges: (since my friend at Just me:C encouraged me too, what a great friend!!!)
