Gotta love family for bringing you back to reality. I received my Cardmakers'Yearbook this week that contains 17 of my cards and was feeling pretty good about myself. It's a fabulous book with lots of incredible designs and it is awesome to be a part of it. Natalie, you did a great job on it.
So, last night, DH asked me to make his mom a birthday card. Let me preface this by saying that very few members of my family actually ever get cards from me anymore...something about the fact that this is now my job, I just don't do it for fun anymore. So I thought, hey, there are 17 fabulous cards in there (see, I needed a good dose of reality) and kindly ear-marked the ones that were my designs so that he could choose just the perfect one for his mom. Now in his defense, I did tell him when I handed him the book, that he could choose any of them...I had just marked mine so that he would know which ones they were. He perused the book for a while and handed it back to me with his choice...you know where this is going don't you??
Now I am thinking that this should be right up there in lessons for having a wife...
*when she says, "Do I look fat?"...the answer is NO!
*when it comes time for any gift occassion...jewelry/yes...appliances/NO
*when given the option to choose her designs or someone else's...you always choose hers!
LOL! So that was my dose of reality and here is my card for my MIL. The card design is from the super-talented Zoe Peirson (page 43 in the book). My husband really likes your work!
BTW, the book has a US price on it ($14.95) so I am thinking that it is available here somewhere, but I haven't been able to locate it yet. If you see it somewhere, give me a shout-out so that I can pick up a copy for my mom!
Now off to go work on Day 9 of my art journal!
