So, believe it or not I got most of my Christmas shopping done yesterday! Woo hoo! I met up with Danielle last night and we went to the mall. It was a little crowded but we just took our time. She got most of the rest of her shopping finished too and even got her self a nice little present! I also stopped in at Hollister and got myself a new pair of jeans and a nice fuzzy lined hoodless sweatshirt. All of the stores were having 50% off or better sales so that made waiting worth it. I just have two presents left to get and I’m done. I have also decided that I will send out Christmas cards, they will just be a little late and I will use the ones that I already have made. Thanks for the comments and input, it always helps! 🙂
Today is Michael’s Birthday!! Join me in wishing him a very happy birthday and a wonderful year ahead!! Happy Birthday Michael!! 🙂
Well, it’s Wednesday and we know what that means! It’s Paper Craft Crew sketch day and this is what we have for you this week…
My card is actually quite non-decript and would work for any range of occasions. The base for today’s card is Basic Gray Card Stock and the background is a piece of Smoky Slate that I embossed with the Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Across the top is a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper and over the top of that is some Basic Black that I used the Confetti Stars Border Punch on. My banner is a piece of Lost Lagoon cut out with the Banners Framelits and the star is cut out using the Stars Framelits. Behind the star is another piece of Silver Glimmer Paper and tucked in on the right is a piece of Basic Gray that I punched out with the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch and some Basic Jewels Rhinestones are added in a row of three. I decided that the banner looked a little plain and what better way to jazz it up than with some sequins! I used some from Doodle Bug and they are called Beetle Black. There are some matte and shiny black, shiny light gray and a few different shades of silver. Finally, my greeting is from the Good Greetings Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum and tucked under the flag. I’m really loving the grays lately, especially with Lost Lagoon and Black! And there you have my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Don’t forget to visit the blog! I hope you enjoyed the card and I thank you for stopping by! Hopefully I will get the rest of my shopping done after work and I hope that you are all finished with yours! Have a great Wednesday and very merry Christmas Eve!! 🙂
