So, I’ve been dying to get outside and work on the new garden, but Mother Nature had a different plan for me. It’s windy, cold, and rainy here today. I decided to get out my scrapbook and art supplies and try to just sketch until I was inspired.
I kept thinking about some of my best friends from work and how much I love them. They teach me something new every day. They inspire me to do great work. They are always there to pick me up and support me. They’re awesome. I began sketching each of them and came up with a card to each that honors them for being so special in my life.
The first one I made was for Patty. Patty is sensible and a great listener. She is VERY stable and just understands everything about me. I used cardstock, XL Ghost shapes by Heidi Swapp, Archiver’s mini box of buttons, and colored art chalk.
Next, I created one for Hannah. Hannah is the most upbeat person you can know. She is a team builder and always tells me her honest opinion. I know that Hannah makes me a more caring person. For her card, I used cardstock, colored art chalk, punch out flowers by K & Company, and Adornaments ribbon.
Here’s the one I created for Georgia. She is like a teddy bear- always there, reliable, gives great hugs, and has an infectious smile. Oh, and she’s incredibly smart. I used cardstock and colored art chalk.
