#the100dayproject : 2022 : 28/100 - you're awesome [cerealsly]
if there's one thing that i love nearly as much as crafting, it's cereal. my faves are cinnamon toast crunch and reese's peanut butter puffs, but i won't pass up some honey nut cheerios. with or without milk - so easy and delicious. this may seem a little random, but i promise it's related to today's handmade card.

the main focal point of the card might be the large circle which is double layered; the aqua layer is flat against the card base while the floral layer has been elevated off of the aqua layer with foam tape. i used a colorful patterned paper so each card will be slightly different in terms of colors of flowers, but the overall design will be the same.

this handmade card could be sent or given for any number of reasons and that's why i love it. i'm all about encouraging cards and day-makers as i like to call them. what's your favorite reason to send cards? i'd love to know!

the other reason i really like this card is because yellow/gold, grey and black create one of my favorite color combos. i think it's timeless and classic and i just love it. this is definitely slightly different than any of the other cards i've made this round of the project, but as i mentioned, i like the way it turned out.

today i had several packages of new supplies arrive - and i've still got a couple on the way! [yayyy for black friday shopping!] one of the things that i was most excited about was the complete set of ink colors from concord & 9th. i've been waiting for them to come back in stock for what seems like forever and on black friday they did and i quickly scooped them up! just look at the glorious colors - and when i opened them, i was in awe. they have such a cool texture and the few colors i sampled are just fantastic. yay - plus, now i want to make a piece of art with all the ink samplings from the three main companies i use . so stay tuned for that.
