Because They Said So.

Saw a fun challenge at Club Anya. Since I have two little people, both wanted to pick out supplies to make a card. And they picked out stuff that was totally different from each other! Just like they are in person, go figure!

Gabi is beyond girly. So, she had a great time picking out bright girly papers. And bring on the bling is her personal motto! She grabbed the bling, and told me to add flowers. Her card was easier to pull together. I used the Mojo Monday Sketch 137 for her card. I love how it turned out. I popped up her flowers, and hair bow. I thought since I was making it for Gabi, it should go to Gabi, when she's not expecting it, so I used a sentiment on there that's perfect for her.
Than Trey went the total opposite direction! I handed him boy colored papers to look at and was actually expecting him to pick out some of my surfing/summery styled papers. But nope, he came back with Halloween. I just looked at him....Halloween?! Yup! Than when I was talking about embellies...he said blue flowers. (Me in my head...Um... Blue flowers and Halloween? That's gonna be hard! So, Halloween card it was, topped off with blue flowers!!) I don't have a lot of guy images from The Greeting Farm, so he picked the owl out. He was thrilled with the end result of his card. I'm saying, Halloween card with blue flowers...that is a scary card! I do think it turned out cute, the flowers totally don't match, but it made him happy, and that's priceless! I followed a sketch challenge at Club Anya for his card. I popped out the owl's eyes, and beak.
