I have a bunch of work to do today. That means that I'm feeling really creative and spend the whole morning in my craft room instead of doing what I should be doing. I can't help it - especially when Dynamic Duos posts one of my favourite colour combinations.
You can never go wrong with Crumb Cake. It provides a lovely contrast for Early Espresso. I've been wanting to use this stamp for a while, but it doesn't leave room for a whole lot else on the card, and I was having trouble finding a background that I liked for it. Alas, this morning I was inspired (or procrastinating - your choice). The texture and matting of this card provide a nice balance for such a large sentiment.
I knew that I wanted to give this card to my Mother-in-law, but I also wanted something else to slip in with it. This little bookmark is the perfect thing. Well, it's not little, but it's lovely. I decided to stick with the colour scheme here as well.
These gigantic paperclips make perfect bases for flower bookmarks. I have a feeling I'm going to go on a binge making these type of flowers, so stay tuned for a picture tutorial on how to make them. The picture doesn't really do it justice.
