You Brighten My Day

Hi everybody! Well, the ban on pink and green could only last so long I guess. I broke down and decided today was the day you absolutely needed to see more of these colors together, and more of the fabulous K & Company paper (Berry Sweet Collection) I've been braggin' so much about lately!

Today's card came about the weekend I was away at the cabin because I had all these little scraps left over, and I COULD NOT....WOULD NOT consider throwing them away. Nope, I was going to salvage every last piece of it.

So I did. I just threw all of the pieces together and made a patchwork quilt out of them, sewed around each piece individually, and then added a heart from the SU! set called Always. The sentiment is from Verve Visual (Julee really DOES have all the best sayings, doesn't she???). Truly a simple card, using up those precious scraps that I just could not, in good conscious, part with.

I simply cannot get enough of this paper (Berry Collection by K & Company). It's a compilation of all my favorite colors in the whole wide world. It makes me happy, happy, happy. See folks, I don't need Mercedes, fancy clothes or humongous houses. All I need is color and I'm a happy, satisfied, energized girl.


The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love color the most.
John Ruskin (1819-1900) English art critic.


Of all God's gifts to the sighted man, color is holiest, the most divine, the most solemn.
John Ruskin (1819-1900) English art critic.

God is liberal of color; so should man be. - Herman Melville
