I managed to make this card for a couple challenges. I started with a sketch from CPS, took the beautiful colors from the Curtain Call Color Challenge and went for a birthday card: 1, because it's Crazy4Challenges challenge this week and 2, because I don't have ANY left in my house. If I had tried to do 3 challenges at once I would've failed, it's amazing what just having fun can do.
I was inspired to ink up the edges of the vanilla with a bit of chocolate and the pink with a bit of red thanks to a BEAUTIFUL card I received in the mail today from my dear friend Patti. Yay for mail that isn't bills! The picture doesn't do it justice, it's absolutely fabulous, as is my favorite Cardinals fan. Head over to her blog, Cherish Each Precious Day you won't be disappointed!
So far the New Year's resolutions have been going fairly well, how about you? The house is slowly getting cleaned up, I've been to the gym 7 times so far, and I'm even getting my classroom a bit organized. The craft area is another story, but Rome wasn't built in a day. For now it's off to bed so that I can be a bright eyed, cheery teacher for the munchkins in the morning!
