Art Journal Challenge - Week Sixteen...

Thanks Emily for the prompt this week!! I put a little bit of thought into it and the idea i came up with made me happy.. it was just thinking of a way to get Matty to participate!! lol

The prompt for this week: "get someone else to contribute"


I knew I wanted Matty to contribute, but how could i get him to?!! Hmmm. So I asked him to write me a little letter that i would put into my card and read it in exactly a years time! So i got the piece of paper ready for him.. and his exact words "oh, i thought i could dictate it to you". Hahahaha! oh gosh!!!! So after explaining again that I wouldnt read the card for a whole year (i dont think he was listening the 1st time) he was happy to do it. I cant wait to read what he wrote! He spent more time on it than I had expected him to. Thanks Matty!

So here is the card with the envelope nicely sealed so be opened on 23rd of April 2008....
(sorry about the quality of the photos.. i took the photos at night as i couldnt wait till tomorrow to take the pics in natural light)

What a great idea to write a note and not read it for a whole year. I love your card and are very curious what's on the note.

Love your card, those colours are gorgeous. You're far more self-disciplined than me, that closed envelope would be sooooooooo tempting :)

This is awesome - I would really have trouble waiting for a whole year to open it though - lol - I don't have the patience for it!

Kristen said...

my husband and I did that, our first valentines day - to be opened in 5 years - and then we forgot! When we came across them again it was really fun and sweet so see what we had written so many years before.
