The Best Things

Hey, kids!  How's it going?  We've got the hubs' parents here this week but I did manage to sneak down to my craft room yesterday and make a quick card or two.

Feel Goods is on the retiring list, and I do love the sentiments in that set although now that I see it in this picture it looks like maybe my sentiment tilts ever so slightly up to the right?  Oh well.  I look at the world in a slightly askew fashion anyway.

I got the colors from this week's Global Design Project challenge:

My first instinct was to go with something marine, like By the Tide, but in the end I decided that Feel Goods needed some inky love before it retires on June 1.

I also used the latest Fab Friday sketch:

Fun times.  I'd better get off the computer and attend to my hostess duties...cheers, y'all!

Oh, these colors really do sing together! Great idea inking up our departing faves, too - I think we're all doing a little bit of that these days! Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!

I like that sentiment, too.

Went to buy a BD card last night at Wally's and saw one I liked -- but the price on it was $8. YIKES!!! YOURS are much prettier anyway. Oh, and I did NOT buy that card. Ha!

Superstar, I am always impressed when people can create a card well using 2 challenges when I struggle with the limitations of one challenge. Thank you for playing along at Global Design Project.

Pretty color combination and I like how you kept the layout simple and the DSP really takes center stage! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!

I love that sweet butterfly and it's near how you repeated the floral pattern element. Great card! We're so glad you played along at Fab Friday!

Such a great combination of these two challenges, Christy Lynn. I will miss this wonderful sentiment - you've showcased it well. Thanks for playing along with this FabFriday sketch and this week's Global Design Project color challenge!
