Ahh… today is my Friday! I’m off from work tomorrow and am going to try and catch up on some things. Michael also goes home tomorrow and will be missed. I’m so glad that I got to spend time with him and get to know him. He’s a great person and I look forward to him coming back again soon. Yesterday was another decent day but it’s chilly this morning. It is supposed to be colder over the weekend too. I went to Friday’s for dinner with Heather last night and then came home and crafted and relaxed a bit. Not bad for a Wednesday.
The card that I have for you today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…
Yes, this was another one of those cards that I knew pretty much what I was going to do when I saw the sketch. My card base is a piece of Whisper White Card Stock and for my background I embossed a piece of Basic Black with the Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I cut two pieces of Smoky Slate and stamped the skyline from the Calling All Heroes Photopolymer Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black on the bottom of them both. I adhered one of them to the background and wrapped some Basic Black Baker’s Twine around it three times and tied one of the Silver Basic Metal Buttons on and adhered the background to the base. On the top panel I stamped the Santa and sleigh form the Holiday Home Photopolymer Stamp Set and the greeting from the Endless Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set both in Memento Tuxedo Black and adhered the panel to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A few Sparkling Clear Sequins scattered around the night sky complete the card. I know what you are thinking, black and gray for a Christmas card… but I really do love the colors and images. I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge and that you are inspired to try something completely different for a Holiday card. Thanks very much for stopping by and I hope that you all have a Terrific Thursday! 🙂
