Happy Valentine's Day.
I am not actually a big fan of this particular holiday. It's never really appealed to me. Or maybe it did, as a kid. But I have definitely gotten cynical about it as I've aged.
It's been a really uneventful couple of weeks. I attended a crop on Friday, and a cardmaking thing yesterday. We had our SU group in early February, too. Work continues to go relatively well.
I have a quick card share for a challenge today. I'm actually going to post two cards, because all though I think the first one is a little more CAS, it is a complete CASE. I made it at Crafty Capers a while ago and finally finished putting it together recently. I could have made it more my own by adding some bling, in retrospect. But alas, the card has already been sent; I needed a quick sympathy card for a colleague recently. Sadly, I'll be needing another one this week, as I just saw on Facebook another acquaintance of mine passed away. I hate cancer.
I don't have the product details for this card. I forgot to write down which company makes that flower, the sentiment and that punch. If you'd like me to find out, please mention it in the comments. I definitely have to ask about the punch, as I love it.
The second card is one where while some CASEing took place, it wasn't an exact replica of the original. Made this one at my friend Angela's place. Everyone coloured their flowers differently and chose a different colour scheme. I have always loved purple, so it was an easy choice for me. The colouring is actually done using SU Blender pens. Made it into a birthday card because I knew a friend had a birthday coming up.
