#the100dayproject : handmade card 33/100-2 : congrats [big news]
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.

earlier today i was fortunate enough to join two girlfriends for lunch [while appropriately social distancing, especially considering we were the only people in the entire area of the restaurant!] and it was so, so good to sit and laugh for a couple hours. these are work friends and while i see them at work, it's never enough time to fully catch up, so i was grateful for today. i was also telling them about this project and my self-imposed rules. i even showed them the inspiration wheel which, when spun, happened to land on inside element - so that's what i'm focusing on today!

i was so pumped when today's spin on the inspiration wheel landed on pattern play again! i've been wanting to re-make a card that's always been a popular seller and it works best with patterned paper.

one of my favorite things about the fall is the changing of the leaves - it's so gorgeous and it always makes me happy. i really tried to incorporate that feeling when designing and creating this handmade card. i'm super pleased with the result and i hope my customers and their recipients will be too! this watercolored blessings card is available now here and you can see my post on instagram here!
