Browsing about blogs, I found a new (to me) challenge: Just Add Ink. I am sure it’s been around, I just never checked it out! This week it’s a color challenge:
I needed a masculine get well card for our retired minister, and after seeing this card on SCS (thanks, Colleen, and I hope you all can see it), I decided to CASE her card and use these colors:
I was too lazy to look for some Kiwi Kiss paper, so I went with Old Olive; I didn’t emboss the tree from Lovely as a Tree, but stamped off once, then added a sentiment from ODBD. I added a jumbo brad and eyelet for an additional “masculine” touch. All the DPs are SU’s Sweet Pea. Although I rarely see my pastor since his retirement, when I do see him, he always comments how much he enjoys my cards, so I hope he enjoys this one too. Edited to add: this qualifies for the ODBD challenge to use brads!
And since I am on a tree theme here, here are two lovely cards I received back in February, both using trees. This is from my friend Kathy:
And this one is from my friend Robyn:
Both meant a lot to our family. Thanks, ladies!
It is a gray dreary day here in PA, I think I will go take a nap and hope my sinuses clear up! Hope all is well in your neck of the woods and you’re having a wonderful day!
