You Are Special




Happy Sunday! Hope you are having a great weekend! I can't believe how fast it's gone by! Eeeek!

I thought these colors from The Play Date Cafe Challenge #142 were so beautiful, I had to play along! They were tricky for me, maybe because I became fixated on using that October Afternoon journaling card with the pencil! hehe! Because I have 5,782 cards (most boxed up and going to Operation Write Home), I've decided my new thing is that I can only make cards that I have a planned use and/or recipient for! What do you think? Good plan?!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Delightful card, Angie! I love how you used the pattern paper (I find that hard for a color challenge!)!! I like your plan for cards...I have quite a stash myself. Now I need to send them to a good place like OWH!!Thanks for the inspiration ;)
