Fab Friday and a Fabulous Friday!

Hello my friends! How are you? I am fantastic! As you know I took a little trip on Thursday night. I was a somewhat evasive about my destination, just for a little fun. My trip took me on a Delta flight to Atlanta, GA. I came to visit an amazing friend of mine… Mr. Brian King! We spent the morning yesterday at Historic Banning Mills doing the canopy tour. We had a great time on the ZIp-Line tour, flying high above the trees (about 300 feet!). After some lunch we came back and spent some time in the Fungeon! Below are some pictures from the Zip-Line Tour… IMG_1876

Me and Brian!

I had an amazing day with my awesome friend, definitely a Fab Friday! Which brings me to today’s post which is for this week’s Fab Friday

Fab Fri 27 Sketch 9-20-2013

Do you see what I see… a window! The base of my card is Real Red Card Stock. I took a piece of Crumb Cake and used my Squares Collection Framelits Dies to cut out the window. The “scene” through the window is created using the Lovely as a Tree Stamp Set stamped in Soft Suede. I inked the stamp once and stamped it four times to give it some depth. Some Stampin’ Dimensional pieces adhere the window to the trees. The Wonderful Wreath Stamp is stamped in Always Artichoke and cut out with my Paper Snips. Yes, I have cut that wreath out a lot! I used my Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker to color in the berries and a piece of “Vintage” Real Red 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon “tied” in a bow completes the wreath. The greeting is from the Joy to the World Stamp Set and is stamped in Always Artichoke and backed with a piece of Crumb Cake. I ticked the corners before I adhered them together. You can never have enough Christmas cards and I have a pretty good stash going already! Go and take a look at the Fab Friday Blog and see what fun creations my teammates have come up with. Thank you very much for stopping by to see my Fab Friday Design Team card and sharing in my fun adventures with Brian. Have a great Saturday! 🙂 Fab Friday 27

  1. This is fabulous, Justin! I love the scene you’ve created, and am a big fan of Wonderful Wreath – it looks so good stamped in Artichoke. Beautiful card, and great photos of your fun time with Brian.

  2. Jaw dropping gorgeous Justin! Color combo great! I rarely use Always Artichoke but seeing it on your card makes me think I better get this puppy out and use it. What a grand adventure for your getaway weekend. Spending it with a good friend like Brian makes it just as fun. Enjoy the rest of your weekend filling it with good memories.

  3. Go-o-orgeous Justin! The zip lining pics are pretty awesome too! From Brians pictures you were a tiny blur coming down the line, but he did promise it was you! So nice to see 2 crafty dudes hanging out!

Triple WOW….I love window scene cards and yours is just stunning ….it should win some sort of a prize . I love it ! You did this before your soaring over the trees I`m sure otherwise I would say you really got inspired fzipping over all of those trees …. A total winner !!!

  8. Your card stopped me in my tracks. I had to go back and check the sketch. You took my breath away with the beauty. Once again, you took it over the top. I just knew you would be seeing Brian!
