#the100dayproject : handmade card 57/100-2 : happy birthday
as i've mentioned several times in past posts, birthday cards are some of my favorites to make. they always seem to be some of my best sellers and i think even hallmark would agree that they're one type of card that people send most often. for this reason i like them to be fun, bright and colorful and i hope that they make the recipient's special day a little bit brighter!

#the100dayproject : handmade card 56/100-2 : a note to say thank you
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!

it doesn't seem like fall right now to me - especially with these 70+ degree days [i'm totally not complaining!] but the abundance of leaves in my front yard tells me otherwise. soon enough it'll be chilly and i'll probably be moaning about the snow - sooo while i'm embracing this weather, i decided to translate some of those feelings into today's card.

as for #the100dayproject - the inspiration wheel landed on inside element. i decided to use a few newer products including an adorable patterned paper that i recently picked up. i wanted to make a friendship-style card and while it's somewhat basic, i think it would be perfect for making someone's day.
