{Card Set Inspiration - Day 1}


Hello there and happy Monday!  We had a fabulous weekend away celebrating Pat's parents 50th anniversary!  I haven't edited my pictures yet, but I thought I'd share two of the happy couple! The first picture below is of Mary and Henry on Friday night when we were all sitting around the campfire.  Pat and Ryan were playing guitar/singing and the little kids were all making smores.
And below was Saturday afternoon.  My sister-in-law, Gail, organized the Mangan Games.  We had two teams...Team Nana and Team PopPop...let's just say we are all very competitive including Nana and PopPop.  They were having a debate about which team won :)!  I'll be sure to share a lot more photos when I have a bit more time to edit them.  To say we had a great time would be a huge understatement!


Now...back to my card sets.  I'm making card sets for the fall craft fair as well as for hostess gifts for when we go away on vacation in a couple weeks. For this card set, I was inspired by this card here.  I love the combination of gray and coral. I stamped off with the flowers to create a variety of cards.  I'll be back this week with a few more card sets!

    Love the angled, two toned card base here. It's so different and really makes the flowers pop!
