the other reason i really like this card is because yellow/gold, grey and black create one of my favorite color combos. i think it's timeless and classic and i just love it. this is definitely slightly different than any of the other cards i've made this round of the project, but as i mentioned, i like the way it turned out.

but in all seriousness, i couldn't do what i do without the help of this guy. during show season he's right there with me, doing all the heavy lifting and talking me up to anyone and everyone. he's great at feedback and at suggesting ideas for things i would never think of and i love when he keeps me company in the craft castle. he encourages me to spend far too much money on new supplies ["because you need them, obviously" is one of his go-to lines] and he's one of the most incredible humans i've ever met. so it's well deserved that he earns employee of the month. love you babe!

okay...onto the card for today! the inspiration wheel landed on heat embossing and sometimes that intimidates me. however, i decided to try a few different things.

those feelings sparked some positive ideas and inspiration for today's card. the wheel landed on 'one layer' and i have a new stamp set that i've been itching to get out of the packaging. [side note on new products - there are going to be a plethora of new ideas and products because i went *slightly* overboard supporting small crafty businesses this weekend!]

i'll be adding this card, [along with a few others that i managed to create today], into the online shop tomorrow. i've still got a few other surprises to share and i'm super jazzed about the online events for both the virtual holiday makers market as well as the shop holiday handmade. it's such a good feeling to support small businesses and i can't wait to see what everyone else has in store!

i hope that if you're lucky enough to have a short work week this week that it goes smoothly - i only know part of my schedule so far, but at least i'll get thursday off as it's one of the two days a year the restaurant is closed. i'm looking forward to massive amounts of carbs in the form of potatoes, corn casserole, stuffing and pie. what fun plans do you have for the holiday? are you social distancing? celebrating in a small group? i can't wait to hear and see details throughout the week - and don't forget i'll be sharing lots of details and updates here, as well as on facebook and instagram.
