Week 23-Anything Goes
Need to make a card for an upcoming wedding and wanted something a little unusual… for an unusual couple. One of the many reasons that I love to make cards is that I am not bound by what is on the card racks at the store. I know that my niece and her soon to be hubby will love this colorful bit of fun… and probably the check that will go with it! For the base, I used a card from a package of notecards I picked up on sale at Walgreens a few years ago. The fun "Analysis of a Kiss" saying is computer generated. [I found it somewhere a few decades ago and typed it up on my laptop. I just tried to find the source by googling the title and first line and mainly found a few hundred grammar lessons. So… if anyone knows the source, I'd appreciate it and will then add it to this posting. Thanks.] The little silver ring is from a package of a few dozen that I found in the cake decorating section at JoAnne's.

Making a few more masculine cards and was inspired by card I found on Pinterest. [You can find it HERE.] I wanted a general card that I could use for any reason, so instead of putting a gift card in the pocket I tucked a nice little computer generated sentiment in the pocket. I printed off the inside sentiment in same font. Those who follow my blog know that I usually decorate the inside to match the outside of my cards, but I discovered that I didn't have enough of the patterned paper left to layer under it. So, I just used a scrap of colored paper in one of the colors in the plaid. I was going to add a button… but my hubby grimaced when I asked if I should do that. [He is my go-to person for card reviews. Since he is usually pretty encouraging, his grimace spoke volumes. So… I nixed the button and kept the inside CAS.]
