And today is Friday for me! Yippee! I actually think that my entire department is off on Friday! I’m hoping to have a productive 4 day weekend. I really need to get my house organized and cleaned up! Today was another quiet day at the office and when I got to my parent’s house little Daniel was there with his little boo boo. He is so funny, I don’t think that he even knows its there. He is still running all over the place with abandon! He goes to get his stitches out on Friday and they will see if there is anything else that needs to be done. He is always such a happy boy as you can see from this picture…
He is growing up so fast! He’ll be talking before too long, he tries to now and gets a little annoyed when you don’t know what he’s saying! After dinner I made my card and then Heather and I went to the shoe store, MJM. I needed some new shoes desperately! I got a pair of boots and two pairs of Ben Sherman dress shoes. One pair is blue suede with red laces! Fun!
Michael has another post using that really cool bird stencil! I think this is the most he has posted in a while! Keep on going over to see what he is up to! You can see the card HERE! 🙂
It’s Wednesday and that means that it’s time for another Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge…
I saw that vast space in the middle and thought shaker card! LOL! The base for today’s card is Cherry Cobbler Card Stock. To make the front shaker portion I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangles to cut out a piece of Cherry Cobbler and Smoky Slate. I also cut out the Window Sheet and the window with them too. The city skyline is from the Calling All Heroes Photopolymer Stamp Set and the sleigh is from the Holiday Home Photopolymer Stamp Set, both are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I adhered some of the Frosted Sequins that I used to fill the shaker part to the background so all of the sequins don’t fall to the bottom. My greeting is from the Project Life December Wonder Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The flags are punched from some Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper with the Banner Punch and the strip is Basic Black. Some assembly and a few more Frosted Sequins and the card is done. I am still loving that stitched detail from the Lawn Fawn dies, it adds just a little extra! And there you have my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Head on over to the blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has done with the sketch and enter yours in the gallery! I hope that you like my card and that you all have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂
