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!
