Even though this post is a bit late, I celebrated World Cardmaking Day (10/3/09) by making this card for my wonderful hubby!
I was inspired by Dawn McVey's Color Challenge and once I found the patterned paper with the aqua print, I was off and running.
This past week has been hectic - work travel, and lots of stuff going on at work and home - just feeling really busy. Saturday was no exception as we were going to meet my family in Berkeley for the USC vs. Cal football game. Okay, we live in SF but I went to USC so I am always happy to cheer for my boys live whenever they come this way. I made the mistake of holding onto all 5 tickets and thought we could just call and meet up whenever/wherever. As the day wore on - the game started at 5pm - I started to get more worked up over where and when we would meet and how we would find them and all that jazz. Well, as you all know, whenever one half gets nervous or stressed, it is very normal for the other half to get nervous as well. Anyway, Glen was a champ! Even texting me that he loved me "ALWAYS" from the barber shop as he was getting his hair cut. Awe... Anyway, our love story is precious to me and he is my rock.
This is the first card I've actually made for Glen and I think he was touched. Even though I have an Etsy shop, the most inspired cards I've made have been those with people in mind. The love and friendships I have in my life mean so much to me and, well, that is what life is all about isn't it? :)
