Monday, why do you have to come so soon?! I did have a nice four days off, I managed to get some stuff accomplished but not everything that I wanted to. Isn’t that the way it always goes?! This morning I have to be at one of our other work locations at 6:15am, ugh! Yesterday I managed to get a bunch of cards made and then I went out for a bit with Heather to see our friends Patti and Tom. On the way home we stopped off at Target and picked up a few things, I always forget one thing and last night it was granola bars. I of course picked up things that I didn’t need but isn’t that the way it always goes at Target?! I hope that you all have recovered from Thanksgiving and Black Friday! It’s Cyber Monday today, but at least you get to do that from the comfort of your own home!
The one good thing about Monday is it’s time for this week’s Paper Players challenge. This week it’s a Tic-Tac-Toe from Jaydee…
I hit seven of the nine squares! I was going to try for them all but I forgot about the patterned paper and transport! Oops! Today’s card was inspired by one that I saw on Pinterest. My card base for today’s card is Sahara Sand Card Stock. I used the Circles Collection Framelits to cut out a piece of Mossy Meadow and used a Simon Says Stamp Stencil and some Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste to create my falling snow. To make the shaker portion I cut a piece of Lost Lagoon out with the Banners Framelits and then used the tree form the Snowflake Card Thinlits to create the negative tree in the banner. A piece of Window Sheet is adhered with Multi-Purpose Glue on the back and some foam tape to keep the sequins inside. Before I adhered the banner to the card I tied a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Baker’s Twine in a bow towards the top and punched out a star with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack from some Silver Glimmer Paper and adhered that with a tiny bit of a Stampin’ Dimensional. My greeting is form the Project Life December Wonder Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Crisp Cantaloupe and cut out with another one of the dies from the Snowflake Card Thinlits. A few Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere that to across the bottom of the banner and that completes the card. I am loving the colors on toady’s card, yes it’s very non-traditional but it does have the green and you can pretend that the Crisp Cantaloupe is red! LOL! And that’s my card for this week’s Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe challenge. I hope that you enjoyed it and that you have as good a Monday as it will allow! Thank you so much for coming by! 🙂
