Oh yes! It’s Friday peeps! I have a lot to get done this weekend but that’s what happens when you leave everything to last minute! LOL! Oops! Yesterday work was work. I had some tacos with the ‘rents for dinner and then headed over to Heather’s for wine night! It’s so nice to just sit there and relax and talk and laugh! We all need that more often than we think! I tried a new wine by Cupcake Vineyards called Red Velvet and I have to say that it was quite delicious! I had notes of Chocolate and Blackberry! Yum! Not a bad way to roll into a Friday! Today is also my friend Grace’s birthday! Happy Birthday Grace!! I hope that you have a wonderful day!! 🙂
Before I get to my card I had to share this picture of little Daniel, he is just so cute I can’t stand it! Does’t he make an adorable little Santa?!?!
I know being the Uncle that I’m biased, but he really is too cute! 🙂
My post for today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge from the lovely Narelle…
Super simple sketch, I knew just what I was going to use! My card begins with a base of Basic Black Card Stock. All of the pieces of Designer Series Paper are from the Stacked With Love Designer Series Paper Stack. The background is just adhered to the base. My horizontal panel is backed with Basic Black and the vertical panel with Real Red and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the image from the You Plus Me Stamp Set in Calypso Coral, punched out with the 2″ Circle Punch, it’s backed it with a piece of Calypso Coral that I cut out with the Circles Collection Framelits. The heart and the bow are from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies and are cut from Red Glimmer Paper. They are held in place with some Multi-Purpose Glue. I thought it needed something else and what better than some Matte Black Sequins?! They are adhered with Crystal Effects. I love the clean and simple look of the card and the way the bow, heart and sequins give it just the right amount of sparkle! There you have my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge, I hope that you like it! Thank you very much for stopping by to see what I have been up! Have an absolutely fantastic Friday my friends! 🙂
