For our first challenge of this new year, we chose a quote by Dave Weinbaum as our words of inspiration.
The secret to a rich life is to have more beginnings than endings.
So, let's see how the W2CB ladies interpreted this month's words.
We are thrilled to welcome Jan as our January Guest I-Teamer. Don't you just love how Jan made the quote her focal point with her fab word strips.... and how her travel-themed embellishments draw your eyes right to her sentiment?! Thanks so much for joining us, Jan!
Talk about great minds! (I really need to remember to use this sentiment treatment more often.) Annie said this month's quote reminded her of butterflies flitting out of their cocoons. So, she placed a few pretty butterflies amidst a swirly, frilly background.
The background of this beauty is so... dreamy! Greta's card is a retirement card for a former colleague who is beginning a new phase in his life journey.
Penny's card rings in the new year in a big way! I'm blown away with this bold design and striking palette! Looks like Penny's starting the year with a real creative bang. :)
My project might look a little familiar to those of you who saw my craft show wares. I made a few desktop calendars that featured our January words. (Yes, I do occasionally make non-card items.) And, as our new blog name indicates, all projects crafty are welcome here. :)
