I trust that we have all recovered from Christmas! It was a beautiful day here yesterday, not too cold and nice and sunny! It’s a little chillier this morning so I think I will spend a some more time today finishing up my projects. I had a nice day yesterday, I spent some time making thank you cards and then Taylor came by and we ran to Target to pick up a few things. I stopped by Brian & Kim’s for bit and then headed over to see my friend Sam. We haven’t gotten to spend time together in a while and it was so great to see her! We talked and laughed and had some dinner, then we decided to watch a movie. We chose one of our favorites, The Holiday. There are some movies that I can watch over and over again and never get tired of them and this is definitely one of them! I came home around midnight and made my card for today. I even managed to not sleep the day away this morning! LOL! I almost forgot to share this picture of Daniel and I from Christmas day. My brother took it, he really is an excellent photographer!
The ornament that Daniel had in his hand didn’t last but about 30 seconds after that picture was taken. He threw it on the floor and it smashed it loads of little tiny pieces! He looks so cute but he can be quite mischievous! LOL!
Now on to my card for today. I want to make an effort to have a stash of thank you and birthday cards on hand so I have them ready to send out. I have a few people that have “winter” birthdays and we always need some masculine ones, right?! Today’s card starts with a base of Smoky Slate Card Stock. The background panel is actually a piece left over from a card that I made a little while ago. It’s cut out with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangles. My greeting is from the Perfect Pennants Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The flags are pieces of paper from the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack*, they are adhered to each other with SNAIL at the top and then Stampin’ Dimensionals hold them to the card. I punched out 2 arrows with the What’s Up Punch from Basic Gray and Island Indigo and adhered them to the flags with Multi-Purpose Glue. I used the Simon Says Stamp Maryanne Snowflake Die and some Silver Glimmer Paper for the snowflake that’s adhered to the flags. Down in the lower left corner is some Island Indigo that I punched out with the Chevron Border Punch and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A few Frosted Sequins finish off the card and add a little more sparkle. I absolutely love that Adventure Bound DSP Stack*, it has all of the photo pages and then some really great patterns on the other side! I hope that you enjoyed my simple masculine winter birthday card! Thank you very much for stopping by and I wish you all a simple fun Saturday! 🙂
