Another typical Monday. The Fall Forums started at work today and I get to play A/V guy for the next two weeks. Nothing ever goes as planned and I just have to make it all work. No pressure though! LOL! I will be glad when they are done! Heather stopped by for a bit when I got home from work and we chatted about the goings on in our lives. After she left I retreated to the Stampin’ Galley to make my card for tonight and play with some other goodies. It was a relaxing evening and that is a good thing.
Here are this week’s Stampin’ Up! weekly deals:
And now on to the card that I crafted last night is for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch…
And it’s a Tall & Skinny! Yay! I began today’s card with a base of Whisper White Card Stock. My background is a piece of Lost Lagoon. I stamped my greeting from the Endless Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler and wrapped a piece of Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine around my background and tied it in a bow. A little dab of Crystal Effects holds the bow neatly in place and some SNAIL adheres the background to the base. My panel on the left is a piece of Cherry Cobbler, I used the “Vintage” 1 1/4″ Square Punch to punch out my windows. The snowflakes are also from the Endless Wishes Set and are heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum Card Stock. A little Multi-Purpose Glue adheres the frame to the Vellum and Stampin’ Dimensionals affix it to the card. A few sequins scattered across the top complete the card. I love the Lost Lagoon with the Cherry Cobbler, I think that they compliment each other nicely! There is my simple Holiday card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. Oh, and if you take a look at the picture the Baker’s Twine looks a bit like a candle again! I hope that you like the card! Thank you for taking some time to come by and visit with me. Have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂
