Lemon & Lime Mini Album Card

Hello everyone and hoping your day is going well. Today I stopped by to share a mini album card I recently finished for my dear mother-in-law's birthday. It took me a while to put it together but I liked how it turned out.

I learned a neat lesson in art and life too. My printer was acting up and wouldn't print the pictures black and white. I tried all sorts of things to get it to work but for some reason, these pictures wouldn't work.

After lots of frustration, I decided to work with the pictures just as they were. In fact, I like them because they looked sort of artsy. So the lesson: when my plans don't work go with the flow. It might turn out better anyways. :)

Take a look!

I used yellow chalk to color the white title sign.




Don't these orange-y pictures look good??? :)


I love using these glass buttons. They looked like pieces of ice.


Thanks for taking a look. Take care!

  2. Kelly, I had to chuckle at your philosophy about when things don't work like you plan. You ALWAYS look on the bright side. I think that's one reason I love you! Love this card. Your MIL is so blessed to have you for a DIL. Love the photos and the dainty flowers and doily. Such a wonderful gift/card for her.
