Ardyth‘s inspiration card as host of One Layer Wednesday this week is a perfect summary of the theme ‘Your Perfect Day’ … and really got those little grey cells going. Naturally, all the wonderful events of life came tumbling to mind … special people, special occasions, special experiences … thanks Ardyth for the journey around so many of my perfect days!
I settled on one particular day where we had friends over for a Courtyard Warming Party … it was a beautiful sunny day, we enjoyed a very long, lingering lunch outdoors and ended up with a few games of boules as twilight appeared. OK … how to represent it? There was my uphill struggle! I tried everything … recycling bag full to overflowing … even went as far as just some simple stamped circles (the sun, plates from lunch, boules … getting desperate!), it just wouldn’t translate from brain to card. So I stopped … and instead of using an event/person/experience that’d already happened, I went for a future event … here’s the card …
I bet you’re wondering how could a ‘Miss You’ card represent a perfect day … stay tuned … it’s coming! The ‘miss you’ refers to the sofa, cushion, table, lamp, rug … and all those other things that go in a sitting room … that we currently don’t have … but that we will have when the renovation is eventually finished! That will definitely be a PERFECT day!
I’m off for a trip round blogworld … hope you’re having a week full of perfect days! Thanks so much for coming by, I really appreciate it … Anita 🙂
