Hi there everyone! Well, the snow started again this morning and it’s to continue throughout the day. Will Winter ever end? I just got a text that my office will be closed today! Yippie! LOL! I had a nice day yesterday, Robin and I had Wendy’s for lunch, it’s been forever since I have had fast food and it was yummy! I had a meeting off-site at 1:00pm and then went back to the office to finish up some stuff before heading to the parent’s for dinner. When I got home I retreated to the Stampin’ Galley to make my card for today. I finished and made the mistake of going on YouTube where I got sucked in for about 2 hours watching various nonsense! YouTube is a fantastic time waster! Lots to do and I spent the better part of the evening watching nonsense, felt good though! LOL!
The card that I made last night is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…
Now I can safely say that I have never made a card like this before, what a fun sketch! I started my card off with a base of Whisper White Card Stock, when folded it’s 9 1/4″ long by 3″ tall. My background is a piece of Soft Sky, I used the Scallop Edge Border Punch along the bottom. The hello is a Mama Elephant Die and is cut out from the background. Before I adhered the background I tied a piece of Black Baker’s Twine around it. I laid the cut out back in after I adhered it to the base and put the cut out word back in so I could put back the little pieces and then I removed the word. The butterfly is cut out with the Butterfly Thinlits from a piece of Basic Black and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I put some Crystal Effects on the body and fluffed up the wings a little and the card is done! I really do like the size of the card. I also was temped to put on some sequins but I wanted to keep the card as clean as possible! I really hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Thanks to Cindy for a really fun sketch and thank you for coming by to spend a little time with me today! Have a terrific Thursday!
