First Posse Challenge!



Well, Hello everyone! Today's card is extra special for two reasons. One is because a dear friend/co - worker of mine is the recipient. He got really sick about a month ago and was in and out of ICU at a local hospital with pneumonia. It did NOT look good for a few weeks, but he is pretty much all better and he came back to work yesterday!!! I made this card for him and brought him his favorite snacks from Panera and Krispy Kreme. He was missed at work and his wife (who happens to work with MY husband in the other building..lol), has really been taking on a lot at home. She's a great lady! The other reason it's special is because it is my entry into the first group Papertrey Posse Challenge! This month was a sketch challenge. I loved the sketch. It's such a simple, but detailed sketch. The little curve at the top, the panel across the middle, the buttons..so many little things that bring the sketch to life! Thanks, Jessica!! It's so exciting. Our little group is a great bunch of ladies! So much talent and so sweet to boot! If you have time and would like to play along with any of our challenges (1 big one per month and 2 smaller ones on the 1st and 3rd Fridays), please do. We'd love to have you!

Oh, guess what? I'm ordering my new baby today. Yep, I finally bit the bullet and will upgrad my first gen iPhone to this new iPhone 4! Today is pre-order day and the little bundle of joy will come next Thursday! Actually, I am getting two. One for me (birthday) and one for hubby (Father's Day). A black one and a white one...we're so happy! We're nerds!

Ok, well have a great day!

Great job with this sketch Keva! Sounds like this card has already found its home. So glad to hear that your co-worker is recovering. You know you are really making me want to buy Chair-rished!

Have fun with your new iPhones!

Keva, this is a definite favorite of mine. The shape. The colours. The chair. Everything is fantastic!! And that paper?!? I'm gonna have to track some of that down.

Fabulous card, Keva! Love that chair, the paper, and the layout! My DH and I are nerds, too - we have matching Palm Pre phones, LOL!

Hey, nerds are good! Where would the world be without us nerds? *smile* Love your hounds tooth chair and glad to hear your co-worker is better. That is a scary thing.

I really like this card. It's not a color scheme that i would be brave enough to attempt. You have inspired me!

Hi Keva! I'm so jealous of your iPhone! I have a first generation also, but haven't been able to get on the website for upgrade. Hopefully sometime this week! :)

Gorgeous card...love the colors!
