good afternoon out there in blogger-land!
i've been trying to balance the creativity with the labour side of things today. if i can get things off the ground with my craft business then i'll be the happiest little crafter in the world! i'm still prepping the cards i plan to bring to the art gallery to sell, and getting in touch with the contacts i made at the gallery this past week. keeping my fingers crossed that i'll sell them some of my stuff!
with this card, i've managed to do all the challenges for this week at 365 Cards - first time since i started playing along! today's card had to use bold colours and stripes, and i think this fits the bill. i think the colour magenta really pops! i've been dreaming of a beach vacation (but of course being unemployed that isn't gonna happen any time soon!) so i guess beachy items have been on my mind lately. a wonderful cocktail while sitting by the pool, slipping on the flip flops and walking on the beach... what could be better?!
