This week's CSCC is a color challenge based on "Finding Nemo." What's not to love? I love, love, love that movie and I love, love, love color challenges! :) This movie is about adventure and relationships and I've been loving (can I say "love" more in one post?) the adventure of life that my husband and I are on. What a blessed journey!
This week is Glen's birthday. For whatever reason, I have not managed to get birthdays, anniversaries, etc, on the calendar in a way that I will remember to make cards for the people that are important to us! Note to self, you really must figure that one out - desk pad? Hang one up next to the craft table? Anyway... Glen was on a motorcycle ride yesterday so I wrapped his gifts and all of a sudden it dawned on me that I didn't have a card yet. I don't usually like tying personal cards into a challenge format but sometimes it is a good way to get the crafty juices flowing. The birthday card I made Glen was a wonderful departure from all of the holiday cards I've been making lately for my shop and upcoming fair:
This card features the navy blue, aqua, white, and two variations of the salmon/orange - a pale version on the designer paper and the twine, and a deeper version in the buttons. I sure hope he likes it!
