#the100dayproject : handmade card 51/100-2 : feel better soon
i don't like being sick/not feeling well and i'm pretty sure nobody else does either. i mean the highlight is being able to lay on the couch and watch the price is right while enjoying toast and chicken noodle soup, right? however - i'm fairly confident that the card created today will cheer up anyone who's feeling under the weather - regardless of the reason for why they're feeling that way [common cold, bad headache, broken bone, surgery, etc.]

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.

i was pretty jazzed when the inspiration wheel landed on pattern play today - i've been itching for a reason to use coordinating patterns. one of my favorite ways to do this is to utilize 6x6 paper pads. generally speaking, the colors coordinate and often share patterns/themes that mix well together. plus, the designs are smaller than traditional 12x12 pages so they look amazing on cards!
