“Heal the past, live the present, dream the future.”
What an unusual color combination to work with in the springtime! The color challenge over at the Global Design Project at http://www.global-design-project.com this week is certainly different, but I combined it with another challenge, the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge, and it was the perfect duo!
I had a “big dream” for today’s card, but I also had a big dream this Easter weekend. When my father-in-law and mother-in-law were first married, they were living overseas. My mother-in-law decided to make her new husbands favorite pie…lemon meringue. If you’ve ever made this pie, you know that it is labor intensive, and that meringue is always tricky. Well, she slaved over this pie in a tiny little kitchen, and was quite proud of her accomplishment. When my father-in-law tasted it, he remarked, “it’s good, but it’s not like my mothers. She made “birds” on the meringue.” Needless to say, my mother-in-law has NEVER made him another lemon meringue pie. So, as they were coming to my house for Easter dinner, I decided to attempt a lemon meringue pie. I wanted the meringue to “bead”…my mom always told me that was the sign of a good meringue. Guess what…the big dream came true…it beaded!!! : ) Ha ha, we dream big, but we enjoy the small things. : ) Hope you had a beautiful Easter or Spring weekend. xoxo
And here’s my card for the two challenges, made with the “Enjoy the Little Things” stamp set and the Arrows and the Boho Chic Embossing Folders:
The card is 5″ square, so I had to make an envelope to fit it!
Have a wonderful week,
