I'm Sorry


When I saw the colors for the Play Date Cafe this week I was reminded of my Beautiful Blooms patterned paper from PTI.  I've had these three little pieces in my scrap drawer since I made this card for my daughter in 2010.  Yes, I really am that frugal.  I save most everything if I think I can use it again.  I'm certainly not a hoarder, but I do like to recycle, reuse and re-purpose what I can.

One of my husband's co-workers asked me to make her an apology type card to give to her husband.  I jokingly said "I don't even know how to make one of those."  I dug around and found this little "I'm sorry." sentiment and kept things pretty simple.  The added scoring helped frame the three squares.

Sorry for the horrible picture.  I wanted to get this to her quickly:)

Super card. You are so lucky to have patterned papers in the exact colors of a challenge. Never happens to me. Love the sentiment in the heart. Very sweet.

Love that paper! Perfect for the color challenge and I'm sure Andrew's co-worker will adore it. I have to admit...I am really bad about reusing things! You would be frustrated about the scraps I throw away!!

I have that paper, too and don't think I've even used it. This is perfect and the scoring adds just the right touch.
