I pulled out some Basic Grey Kioshi paper and though you can't see much of it, I paired it with some Paper Studio Rust/Mint Horizontal Lines paper as the green was a perfect fit.
The rest of the card fell together rather nicely. Early Espresso was my accent colour, and since this card is for the friends we stayed with in Edmonton, I knew exactly which sentiment I wanted to use, one from Verve's Words Cannot Express. The perfect expression of our feelings for this amazing family we are blessed to call dear friends :)
The rest of the Design Team has some fabulous cards for your inspiration.
Just a reminder that each week Keesh will select a winner and an honorable mention and post their cards on the Inkspirations Challenge blog. We'd love to see your card posted as a winner, all you have to do is play along.
Thanks for joining me today. It's going to be a busy weekend with my son's soccer team in a tournament this weekend and my daughter starting to hyperventilate due to having to start high school. Poor thing...she is an introvert who hates change so this is just about doing her in. We have run "what if" scenarios for just about anything (what if you can't find your class, what if you walk into the wrong classroom, what if you miss the bus home etc.) so she is prepared in advance and doesn't have to think on her feet. We have also toured the school and found all her classrooms so she knows where each of her classes will be and also knows where her locker is. Thankfully she has a few friends that are on the same bus route (riding a school being another first) and has a wonderful, extroverted friend she hangs out with so I'm sure she will do just fine after the first week or so. Just have to help her not to worry herself silly before until then!
Have a fabulous Labour Day weekend!
