Make A Wish - Guylou's Inimitability

Good Morning, Cardies!  My teammate, Kim, over at Guylou's Inimitability challenged us to create a CAS card using Kraft Cardstock.  Although I know it is very popular in crafting, I don't own a lot of Kraft paper.  You would have gotten quite a giggle watching me destroy my studio looking for a pack of paper I just "knew" I purchased at Michaels during one of their sales.  It did not help that my DH was standing there with this little smirk on his face saying, "which sale, Hon?  The Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Weekend Sale?  Last week, This week?  I'm just trying to help jog your memory. Oh, I have an idea, why don't you look at your Credit Card Statement...that should help!"  I cannot believe that I have been crazy in love with this man for 43 years!  Must have been something I ate! :D)

Anyway, I deported DH from my studio, found my Kraft paper and then spent two days unable to come up with a design.  Guylou just gave the team a wonderful collection of new images (she is so generous) but nothing was coming out right.  Finally, I decided that I would just make a really simple, basic card that I could give to one of my staff who just had a birthday.  She likes anything with "fairies" and I thought this would be perfect!

  1. Hi Chana! I thoroughly enjoyed your description of the discussion with your DH! It sounds suspiciously familiar - lol! Good thing they are pretty understanding! Your card is fantastic! I really like the bright colors you worked with! They pop right off the page!

  2. Ha ha ha.....loved your story! Mine's a definite keeper (39+ years), but he certainly teases me about my 'stuff'. All in good fun though. I think your card is just perfect! Your coworker will love it. thanks for sharing!

  3. Hey Chana...your hubby does that too??? I think it is in that x chromosone! This turned out wonderfully! Love the nice bright colors! HUGS

  5. Simple and basic it may be but that works for me!! Glad you found the kraft, even with the 'distraction' :)

  6. Your husband sounds like a great guy :) I like the colors on your fairy's wings. The embossing and lace are just right - this is a very pretty card.

  8. LOL. I can't tell you how many times I have "misplaced" something I know I have somewhere. Then I just use something else, and it never fails to turn up shortly thereafter. That makes me so mad!
