#the100dayproject : 2022 : 18/100 - you're the sweetest
i added the smiling, happy pineapple to the bottom right corner of the panel, using pop dots to raise him up a little for added dimension. i used black ink to stamp the sentiment "you're the sweetest" near the top left of the panel. then, the entire panel was adhered to a red-orange card base, coordinating with the color of the pineapple's maracas.

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!]

while i'm working on a bunch of extras and specialty items, i'm not ignoring or forgetting about #the100dayproject - today's spin on the inspiration wheel landed on pattern play. a little while back i picked up a stack of designer patterned paper that isn't my usual style as sort of a challenge for myself. today i selected a floral pattern and chose to create some handmade thank you cards! my stash has been running low so they've been on my to-make list!
