i pulled a few colors of ink and decided to use the same stamp over and over to create a pattern that i would then add a sentiment to. moving in rainbow order [of course!] i inked up the stamp, spritzed it with water and smooshed it onto the paper. i elected to use heavy weight cardstock instead of watercolor paper which changed the end result a bit, but i like it.

the spin on the inspiration wheel for day 33 landed on all one company, ideally meaning that all the supplies i would use to create today's handmade card would come from just one company. i decided this was the perfect time to use some newer items in my stash and that i would add a card to a category i often get requests for: new baby! you will see that i ended up breaking my own rules and cheating a bit by using one supply not from the main company, but since i make the rules i decided it was okay. [anyone else think of who's line is it anyway? i often think about their catchphrase, "where the rules are made up and the points don't matter" - seems pretty fitting!]

the spin on the inspiration wheel landed on monochromatic for the theme of today's card and my secondary wheel landed on the color green. i thought the best option would be to create a holiday [christmas] card in various shades of green.

happy friday friends! we made it to the weekend! personally i am super jazzed about a day off [tomorrow] to enjoy some creative projects, some cleaning & organizational projects and the return of michigan football! woot woot for that!

i'm not sure about you, but this week was a doozy. i'm not sure if it was a full moon or the change in weather, but it seems like no matter where i was - people were crazy. or - maybe it's me, who knows?

since i began this project, i've been somewhat anxiously awaiting the inspiration wheel landing on the "special effect" wedge and today was the day!

i've been wanting to make an updated version of one of my all time favorite cards and while i switched it up a bit, i love the way it turned out! i used a handful of lawn fawn stamps and coordinating die-cuts because they are so happy and i love the punny sentiments that the stamp sets include.
