Thank You

Thank you for all your well wishes for my Mom. It will be a slow recovery, but she's getting there.

It was another beautiful color combo this week at The Play Date Cafe. Here's Jax's lovely color story.

A bit stumped at first by those colors. I wanted them to really look well together, sometimes you can combine elements that just look good together, but these colors were all so bold I didn't want to overdo it. So I went simple and geometric with this one.

I kind of love those hexagons and kind of maybe bought the Rosie Posie set just for them. The flowers are growing on me, though.

I paired my design with a sentiment from Very Vintage Greetings. I like the loopy, delicate font with the bold geometric pattern. (Sometimes I laugh to myself when I say things like that - do I sound like I know what I'm talking about? Cause really, I'm just winging it ;)

Regardless, I needed simple, and this fit the bill perfectly. It was fun to make, and I think it would be great to pull a set together with all different colors and sentiments. I could get a lot of mileage out of these two sets together. There's still a little bit of time left, have you played along with this week's Play Date Cafe challenge? (You should, its fun!)

Thank you for stopping to say hi - I hope your day is going well!
