Fab Friday 53 & New Address!

It’s Friday, but not a happy one for me. I’m working from 8:00am until 12:00am, we have our annual Gala tonight. It’s a great event and a lot of fun but it’s a long day! Yesterday was rainy, windy and cold here again but it’s supposed to clear up today so that will be good. It was a busy day at the office and I had lots to do and still more to get done today before we head over to set up. I trust that you all got the email last night letting you know that I have finally successfully moved my blog over to a self hosted solution. It took a long time to do and I could’t have done it without the help of Andrew. He sat there for hours uploading all of the old posts. So going forward all post will come from jkcardsonline.com. I’m excited to see what I can do with the new hosting and as soon as I figure it out I’ll let you know! Hopefully you found it ok and we’ll be back to normal in no time!

Today I’m over on the Fab Friday blog for our sketch challenge…

Fab Fri 53 10-24-2014

This was another one of those where I knew exactly what I wanted to do as soon as I peeked at the sketch. My card today starts with a base of Basic Black Card Stock. I used the “Vintage” Timber Wheel Stamp to stamp in from the top left and bottom right on my background of Sahara Sand in Sahara Sand. A piece of the Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper is adhered across the middle. The square is a piece of Pumpkin Pie that I partially die cut one of the pumpkins from the Fun Fall Framelits and then used my Stampin’ Trimmer to cut out the rest of the inside. I stamped the pumpkin from the Fall Fest Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tangerine Tango and the face in Memento Tuxedo Black. The greeting is from the Holiday Home Photopolymer Stamp Set and is also stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. A piece of Window Sheet is adhered to the back and some Stampin’ Dimensionals around the edge form the shaker. I filled it with some sequins that I had from last year and that completes the card. A nice fun simple Halloween shaker card! I really do love the shaker cards don’t I?! I hope that you enjoyed my card for the Fab Friday sketch challenge. The rest of the design team has some more inspiration for you over on the BLOG so make sure and stop by. I hope that you have a much better Friday than I am going to! LOL! Thanks for stopping by the new digs! 🙂
