And the four day weekend is almost at an end. I didn’t get most of the stuff I wanted to get done yesterday accomplished. I did get my new door lock installed in the morning and after that I went and met Heather at her new apartment and we went and had lunch. After that we went back to the old apartment so I could put her old lock back on the door and then we ran a few errands. I came home and had some dinner and the spoke to my friend Carolyn from Australia on Skype. I love the fact that I get to see my friends from around the world instead of just hearing them! I made my card for today while we were talking and if you go over to Carolyn’s blog you can see the card that she posted! It’s fun to craft with someone, even if they are miles and miles away!
Speaking of today’s card, I had the urge for a tag but I needed to do something a little different with it, this is what I came up with. The base of today’s card is Pool Party Card stock. For my background I used one of my favorite stamps, the Dictionary Background, stamped in Mossy Meadow on Kraft Card Stock. The tag is a piece of Mossy Meadow and I used the Scallop Tag Topper Punch and the Project Life Corner Rounder to make it. I then used the Confetti Stars Border Punch, once on each side of the tag and backed it with Pool Party to create a nice starry background. The tree is from the Festival of Trees Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum and punched out with the Tree Punch. I adhered it to the tag with teen tiny pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the Holiday Home Photopolymer Stamp Set and is also heat embossed in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder. A piece of Pool Party 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon is tied through to the top and the tag is adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. It needed something more and Carolyn suggested a few Candy Dots in upper right corner to finish it off. I love the negative punched stars with the Pool Party behind them, a pretty cool effect don’t you think? I hope that you enjoy my card for today, I had a lot of fun making it! Thank you for your visit, I always appreciate it. Enjoy your Sunday! 🙂
