Masculine Thank You
This week is contest week over at the Mojo Monday blog and this is my kick at the can.
I went the masculine route as I needed a thank you card for a dear friend and mentor I had coffee with the other day.
The card came together very quickly until I got to the circle element above the banner. I fiddled and fussed with what to put over the banner forever!! Tried three stars of the same size in an arch over the banner (each in a different colour) - nope; then switched out the first star for a larger one with a button on it for some contrast - nope; then switched the stars out for a maple leaf or a combo of leaves - nope; and finally settled on this wonderful Verve Elegant Leaf die. So, what could have been a quickish card turned out taking a lot longer than I had planned - guess the bathrooms get cleaned tomorrow LOL!
Another busy weekend coming up with company coming for an overnight, a baby shower to attend, Mother's Day brunch and teaching my Grade 5/6 Sunday School class! Looking forward to the long weekend in May already!
