I’m always so bummed when the weekend is over. They really do fly by when you are having a good time and I definitely had that! Yesterday I got some serious crafting time in which I always love! I ran some errands and relaxed a bit. Andrew came over last night and we had Five Guys Burgers for dinner and the watched the first Hunger Games. He hasn’t see them so we are going to watch the second one sometime this week. I knew that if he enjoyed Divergent he would like the Hunger Games and I was right! LOL! We have a nice long list of movies to get through, looking forward to it! I forgot to tell you yesterday that I would have some more pictures from my little trip into Manhattan for you today. The first two are from our lunch. We went to a new fast food place called Clark’s Standard. It was very yummy indeed! Here is a picture of the vanilla milkshake that I had a and the burger and onion rings that Kim had…
Let me tell you that milk shake was so thick you needed a vacuum to get it out, but it was delicious none the less! The last two pictures are of little miss Daisy and my best furry friend Hamlet…
Daisy is a cute little Chihuahua and Hamlet is just a big furry ball of love! Doesn’t he look completely disinterested in having his picture taken?! He’s like “what do you think you are doing?!” I have one more of Kim and the four dogs but I’ll save that for later in the week.
So it’s Monday and the one good thing about that is that it’s time for this week’s Paper Players challenge. This week Jaydee has given us a sketch…
This was one of those that when I looked at sketch I knew just what I was going to do! My card base is a simple piece of Whisper White Card Stock and the background is a piece of Flower Pot Designer Series Paper. The circle in the middle is a piece of Whisper White and the frame is a piece of Blushing Bride that I cut out with the Circles Collection Framelits. All of the stamped images are from the Garden Party Stamp Set. Some are stamped on the White in Lost Lagoon and Garden Green and some more are stamped in Blushing Bride and Garden Green, two are heat embossed on Tangerine Tango with Crushed Curry Stampin’ Emboss Powder and they are all cut out with my Paper Snips. For the flowers that I cut out I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere them inside the circle. My greeting is from the same set and is also heat embossed on Lost Lagoon in Crushed Curry. Another flower is added to the greeting with a Stampin’ Dimensional and that’s my card! Even though the background is very busy I still really like it with the circle in the middle. I think that it helps brake it up somewhat. When I finished the card I realized that I only used one stamp set! That hardly ever happens! LOL! Oh, are you sick of the frames yet?! I think I have a few more to go! LOL! I really do hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players sketch challenge. Thank you for stopping by to share in my day! I hope that we all have a good Monday! 🙂
