#the100dayproject : handmade card 70/100 : never give up

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!

#the100dayproject : handmade card 30/100-2 : i am missing you

since i began this project, i've been somewhat anxiously awaiting the inspiration wheel landing on the "special effect" wedge and today was the day!

i've been wanting to make an updated version of one of my all time favorite cards and while i switched it up a bit, i love the way it turned out! i used a handful of lawn fawn stamps and coordinating die-cuts because they are so happy and i love the punny sentiments that the stamp sets include.
