Tomorrow (March 27) my husband and I celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary- holy cow has it been 8 years already?! I had this idea for a card design for him- a heart with a #8 wrapped in there somehow but I couldn't make it look right without turning the 8 on it's side. While talking to my way cool sister this morning she reminded me that the infinity symbol is a #8 on it's side! How cool is that?? We've made it past the "7 year itch" and are now on to infinity!! Ha ha, very cool indeed. Here is the card I came up with, and my preliminary sketches- I love to see how other people work so I thought I'd post that as well. I painted it with Twinkling H2Os and it's all sparkly and cool. Oh, and he doesn't read this blog so he won't see it early. Ugh, I just spent 10 minutes agonizing over the shade of blue of the envelope to match the card until I remembered he's colorblind and it DOESN'T MATTER. Sheesh.

It was 73 degrees here last Tuesday and it felt AWESOME after a long winter. It's back to reality as far as the temp goes but here is part of a journal page from that day. The page was wet when I took this pic so it's sorta lumpy. It's from the Jordi Labanda book.
Deb, from the day2day journal goup asked us to share the covers of our journals. Lately I have been bouncing between 3, not including the kid's, and here they are. One is a comp book covered in paper with a ribbon bookmark and elastic strap added. The next is a notebook I found at target with lined paper and the third is a Cachet hardbound sketchbook with my handprint, a ribbon bookmark and elastic strap I added. I usually like to work in just one book at a time but somehow got caught up in 3 this time. Not really fancy, but this is what I'm working in these days.
