You & Me PPA 186

January 4, 2014

Another very gloomy day in Georgia.  I went to Athens today with my dear friend and we had a fabulous time.  It was so nice to spend special time with her!  Lots of laughs, clothes shopping and Starbuck's!  It doesn't get much better than that.

When I came home, I went in my craft room to finish my card for Pals Paper Arts Color Challenge.  When I went on to enter my card, I realized that someone submitted a card very similar to the one I made.  WOW---great minds think alike.  It was someone's work I really admire and it made me feel good that they had the same idea that I had.  So, back to the craft room I went and I made this Valentine to enter.   I always have a difficult time with gold, but I like it with the Island Indigo.  It is a very different card for me.
