Oh yes! It’s Friday! You know how I feel about that! LOL! It was another nice day, sunny and cool, only in the low 80’s. As far as work goes I spoke too soon, it was a little nutty yesterday. I got to do things that aren’t really my responsibility again. I help out whenever I can and that gets me where?! What can you do?! Last night Andrew came by and we did some more apartment stuff and then took a run to IKEA. I have to say that I’m little disappointed in the lighting choices of late. I’m all for the environment but the LED lights are not quite as bright as the old bulbs and they are quite pricey. I ended up not getting anything but Andrew did have some hot dogs for dinner. Two hot dogs, a soda and chips for $2.50! You can’t beat that! The rest of the evening was just spent sitting outside and talking. Sometimes the simple things make life wonderful!
And this Friday is made even better because it’s a Fab Friday! This week we have a really neat, simple sketch…
I have to admit I had a lot of fun making this card. The card begins with a base of Smoky Slate Card Stock. For the background I took a piece of Night of Navy Card Stock and used the Circles Collection Framelits to cut out a circle in the lower right portion of the card. I then used the Hearts and Stars Decorative Mask and some Embossing Paste to create the stars on the background. After it dried, I adhered it to the base. The clouds are made using the Word Bubbles Framelits and some Whisper White and are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My large star is a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper cut out with the Stars Framelits. For the greeting I used the Alphabet Rotary Stamp to create my own greeting in Memento Tuxedo Black. I flagged the ends and adhered it and the star with some more Stampin’ Dimensionals. I think it’s neat the way that the cut out circle appears as if it’s in front of the background. And to me, it looks like the moon! That’s my Fab Friday Design Team card for this week’s sketch challenge! Take a minute to go over and visit the blog to see what my fellow designers have made and don’t forget to enter your card in the gallery so we can see what you do with the sketch! I hope you enjoyed the card and thanks so much for stopping by today! 🙂
