I do love a productive Saturday! In the morning I relaxed a bit and then watched some videos on YouTube, craft videos of course! Around 10:45 I headed over to Scrap-A-Latte with Taylor to go and see Renee. She had a crop going so there were lots of people to chat with. I also got to see all of the new Catalogs that she brought back from CHA. The one thing that stands out in my mind is this really cooky crazy bird set from Tim Holtz called Bird Crazy, I will definitely be needing that one! We stopped by Michaels and Home Goods and the grabbed some Pizza and paid a little visit to AC Moore. I got a bigger watercolor paint set, I have really been into watercoloring lately, and picked up a few new props. I spent a few hours crafting and then Danielle came by so we go to the work holiday party at our CEO’s house. It’s nice to see people outside of the office, you get to experience a whole other side of them. Sometimes that can be a great thing and sometimes not, but it was a good time none the less! Today it’s supposed to rain all day so I will be spending some more quality time crafting! What better way to spend a rainy Sunday?! How about you, what are you up to today?
Here is another video from the Sam Smith concert. This song is called Latch and he usually does the acoustic version, which he starts off with, but then, well, you’ll see!
My card that I made for today’s post has a Valentine feel to it but could definitely be used for so much more. It was inspired by a card that I saw on Pinterest. I started off with a Whisper White Card Base and added a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe for the background. Some Whisper White is punched with the Ornate Tag Topper Punch for my larger tag. I stamped the lines and greeting from the Painted Petals Stamp Set in Crisp Cantaloupe and Memento Tuxedo Black. The second smaller tag is a piece of paper from the Stacked with Love DSP Stack that I punched out with the Note Tag Punch. My Silver Glimmer Paper Heart is the Sweetheart Punch and the heart from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits combined. I punched the inside and then used the Thinlit to cut around it. Another heart is punched out with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. I heat embossed yet another heart from the You Brighten My Day Stamp Set in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and punched that one out too. The large heart is adhered with some Multi-Purpose Glue and the smaller ones with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I tied the two tags together with some black hemp cord twine and used a silver Mini Metallic Clothespin to hold them to another piece of the Stacked with Love DSP. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back then hold that to the card. I love the two tags together and that silver sliver glimmer heart (say that fast three times!)! The card would make a fun Valentine but I think that you could definitely use it for a birthday or even a thank you! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card! Thank you for stopping by to catch up and have a very crafty Sunday! 🙂
