#the100dayproject : handmade card 76/100-2 : friend like you
today i had several packages of new supplies arrive - and i've still got a couple on the way! [yayyy for black friday shopping!] one of the things that i was most excited about was the complete set of ink colors from concord & 9th. i've been waiting for them to come back in stock for what seems like forever and on black friday they did and i quickly scooped them up! just look at the glorious colors - and when i opened them, i was in awe. they have such a cool texture and the few colors i sampled are just fantastic. yay - plus, now i want to make a piece of art with all the ink samplings from the three main companies i use . so stay tuned for that.

i was pretty jazzed when the inspiration wheel landed on pattern play today - i've been itching for a reason to use coordinating patterns. one of my favorite ways to do this is to utilize 6x6 paper pads. generally speaking, the colors coordinate and often share patterns/themes that mix well together. plus, the designs are smaller than traditional 12x12 pages so they look amazing on cards!
