So, do you know what?! It’s FRIDAY! Yay! I have to say that I had a good but busy Thursday. Work was a little chaotic, they had an event in the morning and I ended up helping out my old department. Not that I mind and I would do pretty much anything for my old boss Nancy. I also get to fix some iPads tomorrow morning because the guy that we have in the IT department couldn’t do it. After work I went straight over to Scrap-A-Latte to see Renee. We plotted what we are going to do with some upcoming projects. And yes, I got a few things! LOL! On the way home I stopped by Heather’s and had dinner with her and her brother. She made tuna wraps with avocado and I mixed up some Sriracha and Mayo, delicious! We ran to the shoe store because I’m looking for some brown boots. I didn’t find any boots but I did find three pairs of Ben Sherman shoes that I loved! I also wore a plaid button down shirt, something that I never do. Brown boots and a plaid shirt… what is happening to me?! LOL! When I got home there was some Happy Mail from Pretty Pink Posh waiting for me! Love me some sequins and I think that her’s are the best!
The card that I have for you today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…
A fun sketch as always and I wanted to do something a little different. My card base is Whisper White Card Stock and the front is covered in a piece of Island Indigo. I heat embossed a piece of Garden Green with some Pool Party Stampin’ Emboss Powder and the Hero Arts with Basic Gray Waves Background Stamp. The Project Life Corner Rounder is used to round off the corners and some SNAIL adheres it to the card. Next up is a piece of Vellum and on that I heat embossed one of the stamps from The Open Seas Stamp Set in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The Spiral Border Punch is used along the right side at the left corners are rounded and some 2-Way Glue holds it to the background. I also stamped the anchor from the stamp set and heat embossed that in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum and cut it out with my Paper Snips. Some Kool Tak Clear Foam adheres that to the note page. My greeting is from the Fabulous Four Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a piece of Pool Party. I flagged the left side and wrapped some Hemptique Natural Hemp Cord around it before adhering it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A few of the Hazel & Ruby The Makery Shine and Sparkle and Green with Envy Sequins complete the card. I really am loving that background stamp and the The Open Seas is the first Stampin’ Up! set that I ever got! I really hope that you enjoyed my masculine birthday card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Thank you for spending a little of your Friday with me! I hope that yours is a fantastic one!
