Yesterday I managed to sneak out of work early. My friend Kim was coming in from Manhattan to stay with me for the night, and I desperately needed to straighten up my house. I managed to get most of the stuff done that I wanted to accomplish, and I picked Kim up from the train station at 6:40. She came out to go with me to my friends Brian and Kim’s daughter’s 1st and 3rd birthday party. It was optional costumes, so I wore a Batman shirt with a cape velcroed on the back. We had a good time, and it was great to see all my friends. Today, I will take Kim home later and my friend Andrew will join me because him and I will go for a long walk in the city, and I will see if can take some pictures for you to show you tomorrow.
The inspiration for today’s card comes from this week’s Just Add Ink challenge. They have asked us to just add grunge…
The base of my card is Midnight Muse Card Stock and the background is a piece of the Birch Paper from the Thankful Tablescape Simply Created Kit. I backed it with a piece of Chocolate Chip to make it sturdier and I wrapped a piece of 1 1/4″ Burlap Ribbon around the lower half. It’s mounted to the Midnight Muse card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The leaf is from a pair of old jeans and I cut it out with the Autumn Accents Bigz Die and adhered to the card with Multi-Purpose Glue. I chose the greeting from the Harvest of Thanks Stamp Set and stamped it in Crushed Curry, cut it out with the Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies and adhered it to the Burlap Ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I really like the leaf cut from the jeans and the thanks definitely gives it the grunge without making the whole card look dirty. I appreciate you stopping by to see my card for this week’s Just Add Ink challenge. Thank you very much, and have a super Saturday!
