Spouses Set

Alright, so today is a cooking, cleaning, and crafting frenzy for me! I'm hosting a Spouses' Coffee here tomorrow night, so lots to be done! It's a potluck- I'm doing main course, appetizers, and some desserts. And of course hosting means cleaning everything from the clock on the mantle to the toilet and the bathroom! Also, I've been making the door prizes, which you can see below :) Each set has three birthday cards and three thank-you cards.

I pulled this card out in particular because it's a "purple" challenge over at Our Creative Corner.

This set uses the sketch from Mojo Monday #98. The colors are inspired by this photo {from JulieAnnsJewels}, part of EtsyInspired #47.

This set uses the sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch #29. The colors are inspired by this photo {from JulieAnnsJewels}, part of EtsyInspired #47.
