Too Many Choices


I have an order from my dear friend Julia for 15 Thank You cards...my two DD's are best friends with her two DD's - they went to Preschool together, they have been 'besties' (as they say) for many years. I used the Sketch Challenge on SCS for this card...and made it in 3 colors - I like variety and am not too good at making duplicates...so this makes it so much easier!
I made 3 different colours of this card and couldn't decided which one to upload...so put them together...I am not sure which one I like the best - I would be inetersted to hear your opinion!!
I have not got a scalloped edge next to the image (as per the SC) BUT I did use the SU Eyelet Border Punch to to the lacy corners on the image - my SU, Ann showed us how to do those, last night at our scrapbooking class (my second one!) SO I have technically used a border punch - hope that is not stretching thngs a bit too much!!! I love the look of it and am looking forward to using the scalloped one in much the same manner...I love finding more than one use for each thing!!
The Images are water coloured, such a rare thing for me - I did find it theraputic, sitting there colouring in!!! The cards all have sponging, lacey corners and different DP....the mauve card has paper piercing rather than the small pearls that the other 2 have!! The pearl beads qualify this card to the Flourishes Challenge - I love using beads on cards...they can add so much!
Well that is it for me tonight - I am about to head off to bed, I am having more and more nights after midnight....closer to 1am...have to try to curb my addiction - LOL!
Thank you for dropping in, I love reading your comments, it always makes my day! God bless bless you!
