Yes, the bed got the best of me again this morning! I guess with cooler weather and the warm bed it’s just a little harder to get out of it these days! Yesterday was another crazy day at the office. After work I came home and had some dinner. Heather called and asked if I would like to go and see Patti with her so Taylor and I took a ride out to Bohemia with her. We had a nice time as always. I got home around 11:00 and decided that I would make my card for today. It’s a simple Saturday card! Today Andrew and I are going to deal with his hard drive and install a new one and come up with a better backup plan. I’m also going to take a ride out and see my friend Renee at her new scrapbook store! That will be fun! Michael has made a few Hanukkah cards and a really cool menorah so take a minute to go and see them HERE. I love the menorah, so different!
Like I said, today is a simple Saturday card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge…
Some of my favorite colors! I thought about what I wanted to do on the way home last night and this is what I came up with. My card base is Soft Sky Card Stock. For the background I used a piece of Bermuda Bay and stamped the Birthday from the Yee-Haw Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versa-Mark and heat embossed it with Pool Party Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The Ballon Framelits* are used to cut out the negative ballon from the background and the panel is adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My other balloons are from the Celebrate Today Photopolymer Stamp Set*. I heat embossed one in Pool Party Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum and the other one with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Again, the Ballon Framelits* are used the cut them and the banner, also heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, out. The gold ballon is adhered to the background with 2-Way Glue and the Pool Party one with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I was going to tie some White Baker’s Twine around the balloons but decided that I wanted to keep the card as simple as possible. I love the balloons heat embossed, they are nice and shiny just like real balloons! So there is my simple Saturday card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge. I hope that you enjoyed it and the continued sneak peeks at products form the upcoming 2015 Occasions Catalog! Thanks, as always for coming by to see me. I wish you all a simple, sun Saturday! 🙂
