DCBD102 ~ Diva's Coffee House Design Team Color Challenge ~ Just HAD to take a bite

Today I am compelled, when I see this color set, to make a card for a dear friend in need of a hug. Having a team of demonstrators is one of the most rewarding things about my life. I have friendships that will stand the test of time. I also end up giving out advice, that I don't always feel qualified to give. There is a certain psychology involved and when people are involved, I'm really not sure that there is a correct answer.

I made this card for a dear friend who is a demonstrator, who had a rough patch recently, relationship wise. Someone took a bite out of her heart, (I think it was completely unintentional)and it's wearing on her a bit. I don't want to see it drag her down. She's so smart. It's funny that the advice that I end up giving, is the same thing I tell anyone that makes a mistake on a project. Somehow, it seems appropriate when faced with a problem that even through soul searching you just can't seem to fix. Sometimes, it's important to know when just to add another layer of paper and keep going. Can I also say, that I just HATE my own handwriting, but I had NO CHOICE.. (smile)

Speaking of my dear friends. Please go and check out the other members of the Diva Coffee House Design team, (on my sidebar) to see what their awesome creations are with this really funky color combination! I can't wait to see what they have come up with this week! Prepare to be amazed! (smiles) Have a great Wednesday.
