Happy Saturday peeps! Did you score any really good Black Friday deals? I avoided Black Friday for the most part. I did go out with Anthony and Bill last night to the Apple Store to get Anthony his new iMac. The store wasn’t really busier than any other Friday night. They don’t have any deals though at Apple. I did get to see my friend Lauren and she was really helpful as always. We went to Friday’s for dinner after and I had a Sam Adams Winter Lager, quite tasty! I came home and Skyped with my friend Eva while I made my card for today, that was fun! Today is clean the house day, I hope! LOL!
As you know I like to share all kinds of things with you on my blog. I’m a big fan of design of any kind. My friend Nicole from work has been working on redoing her living room and dining room for a while now and she finally got it finished. She showed me the pictures the other day and I LOVE what she did! The rooms have a rustic modern feel to them and I love all of the elements that she put together! Here is her new dining room. Check out the awesome table and really cool chairs, not to mention her favorite part, the chandelier with the Edison bulb!
And in her living room I love the dresser that the TV is on along with the coffee table! The rug is completely unexpected but works so well with all of the other elements!
Plus the pictures have a sort of magazine quality feel to them! Awesome job Nicole and thank you for letting me share the pictures!
Today’s card has been floating around in my head for a little while and I decided that it was finally time to bring it to life. To make the card base I used a piece of Whisper White Card Stock cut to 3 1/2″ wide (tall & skinny!) and covered the entire front with a piece of Brushed Gold Metallic Card Stock. The background is a piece of Night of Navy, I heat embossed the snowflakes from the Project Life December Wonder Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pool Party Stampin’ Emboss Powder and the greeting from the Endless Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. A piece of “Vintage” Pool Party Baker’s Twine is tied in a bow off to the left and the panel is adhered to the base with SNAIL. The 25 and Very Merry are also from the December Wonder Set and are heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum. I used the Hexagon Punch to punch out the 25 and the 1″ Circle Punch for the Very Merry. The large swirl is from the Sweetie Pie Frames Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed with Pool Party Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum and cut out with the Circles Collection Framelits. I used some 2-Way Glue to adhere the large and small circles and Stampin’ Dimensionals for the 25. A Basic Jewel Rhinestone in the middle of each of the snowflakes completes the card. I am so loving the blues for the Holidays, more so than ever before and with a little gold I think it’s the perfect combination! I really hope that you enjoyed my blue Christmas card for today’s post and Nicole’s new rooms. Thank you so much for stopping by, I wish you all a stupendous Saturday! 🙂
