#the100dayproject : handmade card 76/100-2 : friend like you
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.

those feelings sparked some positive ideas and inspiration for today's card. the wheel landed on 'one layer' and i have a new stamp set that i've been itching to get out of the packaging. [side note on new products - there are going to be a plethora of new ideas and products because i went *slightly* overboard supporting small crafty businesses this weekend!]

i'll be adding this card, [along with a few others that i managed to create today], into the online shop tomorrow. i've still got a few other surprises to share and i'm super jazzed about the online events for both the virtual holiday makers market as well as the shop holiday handmade. it's such a good feeling to support small businesses and i can't wait to see what everyone else has in store!

speaking of having, today i have another handmade card that was inspired by this one i made the other day. i am loving this stamp set and finding myself reaching for it a ton! the inspiration wheel landed on color swatch and luckily for me, the result was one i could incorporate into this card i've had in mind.

i hope that if you're lucky enough to have a short work week this week that it goes smoothly - i only know part of my schedule so far, but at least i'll get thursday off as it's one of the two days a year the restaurant is closed. i'm looking forward to massive amounts of carbs in the form of potatoes, corn casserole, stuffing and pie. what fun plans do you have for the holiday? are you social distancing? celebrating in a small group? i can't wait to hear and see details throughout the week - and don't forget i'll be sharing lots of details and updates here, as well as on facebook and instagram.
