I woke up this morning to some snow flurries, well, really it looks more like someone is sprinkling glitter very minute or so! It’s barely snowing, I’ll take that! Yesterday was a nice day, it was somewhat sunny and warmed up a bit. I came home from work and continued to work on my projects. Andrew stopped by and we brainstormed about the Suicide website. It’s kind of hard to come up with something that doesn’t sound odd for something that is so serious and such a sensitive subject. I’ll let you know what the final decision is after it gets approved at work. Today is my brother Jason’s birthday! Happy birthday!! We are out to dinner tonight and I’ll post his card next week. One more day to go, we can do this! 🙂
My card that I have for you today is for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge…
I decided I would give a masculine, just-because card a try today. I started today’s card off with a piece of Basic Black Card Stock. My background is a piece of Smoky Slate stamped in Smoky Slate with my favorite, the Hardwood Background Stamp. The panel in the middle is a piece of paper from the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack backed with a piece of Basic Black. A piece of “Vintage” Basic Gray 5/8″ Satin Ribbon is adhered around the back of the background that is then adhered to the card base. My greeting is from the Hello There Host Stamp Set and is heat embossed on Vellum in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I used the Circles Collections Framelits to cut it and the Basic Gray frame out, which is then adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A neat, somewhat monochromatic card, I really like the way the rocks on the DSP play off of the woodgrain background for a very earthy look. I hope you enjoyed my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. It’s always nice to have you stop by and see what I’ve been up to, so thank you! Have a great Thursday! 🙂
