HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE..
This card is for my brother.. He owns is own contractor business and lives about 3.5 hours north of me.... he builds high end homes and remodels.. well he is always good for sending me jokes or when my children were younger would send them home with those hard cardboard tubes that come in carpets.. or scraps of wood to make things with.. you just never knew what would be brought back.. Always fun and a surprise.
Well today I got a package in the mail from my brother.. I opened it and it was a paint swatch strip which contained 1320 paint swatches in it see other photo below.. and the package was wrapped using the back side.. wall paper.. when I saw the right side of the wall paper I knew I had to make a card for him. little does he know I also get paint chips but the bigger ones like 3x3 from the local hardware store and some of the larger longer ones also. So I made a card using a piece of the wall paper, that is the background paper on my card, then I used some textured paint chips I had of my own and die cut some feathers, hearts and sentiment.. I used some twine as I couldn't get some of the shipping tape off where it was exposed when he was wrapping the GIFT... I love this card and the items used which are wallpaper and paint chips.. love it and thank you Barry. I love you and your quirky personality..
