My day yesterday was pretty quiet until the evening. I got a lot accomplished at work which is always good. Had some dinner, came home and sat down to make a few cards. Around 8:00 I got a call from Brian asking if could some over and stay at the house with Izzy because Savannah fell down the stairs. Off I went! Thankfully she was ok other than a nice lump on her head. That has to be a little frightening to be that little and go down an entire flight of stairs. Those little ones are tough though aren’t they? I think that maybe I should get her together with Daniel! They both see to be a bit accident prone! Today is also two of favorite people’s birthdays! Happy birthday to Kim, one of the sweetest people that I know and to my friend Brian King, another amazing person! I hope that you both have a wonderful day!
Before we get to today’s post here are the weekly deals from Stampin’ Up!:
Today I’m over on the SUO Challenges blog for our Merry & Happy challenge. I decided on some very non-traditional but very happy colors for my card! The base of today’s card is Soft Sky Card Stock and the background is a piece of Blackberry Bliss that I embossed with the On Point Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The two banners are Soft Sky and Lost Lagoon, I used the Banners Framelits to cut them out. I stamped the happy from the Endless Birthday Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss. Then the Lost Lagoon banner is tucked behind the Soft Sky one and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My two tress are cut out with one of the elements from the Snowflake Card Thinlit from Mossy Meadow. I used a Versa-Marker to dot them and heat embossed them with some Pool Party Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The HOLIDAYS is from the Watercolor Winter Too Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Blackberry Bliss and cut out with my Paper Snips. I adhered the trees and the greeting to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A simple fun and bright Holiday card! I hope that you enjoyed my card for the Merry & Happy challenge from SUO Challenges.
