Can you believe October is almost over already?? I mean, Can you believe it??? And not only that, tomorrow they’re predicting sn……aggghhh, can’t say that word yet!! I mean, it’s still October! C’mon, maybe some rain, but not….THAT! (sigh) Maybe the weather is trying to keep up with the frantic pace we bring on the holidays. I’m pretty sure I saw Christmas stuff right after Easter in the stores this year. I kid. But it does seem to be rushed more and more, doesn’t it?
A couple of days ago Dear Husband came to me with a request. A client of theirs was about to undergo surgery and he wanted a nice card to send to him from the company. Could I do that? You betcha!
So I thought “something nice and simple, no do-dads and frilly stuff, definitely masculine, corporate looking. Nothing to artsy and funky. “. So I sat down at my craft table and began to play. I got a little side tracked and came up with this.
Hmmm….while this card was definitely fun to make, and is pretty masculine, in my humble opinion, it wasn’t the look I was going for. It needed to be simpler. Cleaner. And also flatter and easier to mail. Let’s try again.
How about this?
That’s better! A very simple and straightforward layout, but not boring. I kept the colors masculine, but soft and soothing at the same time, which I think is appropriate for someone facing surgery. Soothing and peaceful is good.
So, whatya got goin’ on? Planning anything special for the weekend? Halloween/Fall parties perhaps? Maybe some crafting? I don’t know about you, but I’m glad it’s Friday. Tomorrow is “sleep in” day! A time to relax and enjoy the family. Sounds heavenly to me!
Drop me a line and let me know what’s up! 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by!
