To describe the temperature here as cold would be an understatement! It is downright FREEZING! I guess if it wasn’t so windy it wouldn’t be that bad, but it’s pretty darn cold, like minus 10 cold! I was also quite tired yesterday. I made it through the day at work and got a lot done. I stopped by Scrap-A-Latte after work to meet up with Andrew so we could go over any last minute things with Renee and get keys. When I got home and went to my parents little Daniel was there and I chased him around for a bit. Then I came home and took a nice two hour nap! I did feel a lot better after that and was able to sit down and make my card for today.
After a little holiday break the ladies over at Freshly Made Sketches are back with a new sketch…
Very nice and simple! To start off my card I used a base of Daffodil Delight Card Stock and covered the front with a piece of the Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum with some very strategically placed Multi-Purpose Glue to hold it in place. The image is from the Sale-A-Bration A Happy Thing Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I used Daffodil Delight and Wild Wasabi Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers to color it in. My greeting is from another Sale-A-Bration set, You Brighten My Day, also heat embossed in Gold on Vellum Card Stock and punched out with the Banner Punch. I cut out a piece of Wild Wasabi and Gold Glimmer Paper to put behind it and adhered it to the base with SNAIL. I needed a nice bright happy card on such a chilly day and I think this one fits the bill! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge using some of the new sets from Sale-A-Bration. Thanks very much for taking some time out of your day to check in with me! Here’s to a good Thursday, we all know what tomorrow is!! 🙂
