A late happy Saturday to you! I don’t know why but I just can’t seem to get up on the weekends anymore! I guess the bed was little too comfy with all of the blankets! So yesterday was a nice sunny but chilly day again. I got a lot done at work and then came home and Andrew stopped by for a bit. He’s out in the Hamptons this weekend for the Satellite Lane retreat. They rehearse and get ready for Harmony Sweeps all weekend. A little chilly for the Hamptons but maybe that help them concentrate! I went out to dinner to Friday’s with Anthony and Bill, that’s always a good time! Tonight I have a work Holiday party to go to so Danielle is going to come by here so we can go together. I’m off to Scrap-A-Latte in a bit to help Renee get ready for some classes, that will be fun! What are you up to this weekend?
As promised here is another video from the concert. This is the opening and the song is called Life Support…
My card for today is for this weeks Pals Paper Arts sketch…
I got my Paper Pumpkin Kit in the mail yesterday and love the stamps that came in it so I used one of them on today’s Valentine’s card. The base of the card is Whisper White Card Stock and the background is a piece of paper from the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper stack that I adhered a piece of 1/4″ Whisper White Cotton Ribbon around the back before adhering it to the base. For my greeting I used the You Plus Me Stamp Set and heat embossed it in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Real Red. I used an element from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits to cut it out. The heart on the top right is the one from the Paper Pumpkin Kit and is heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum and cut out with my Paper Snips. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere the banner and heart to the card. I drew a few lines down from the tag and used another one of the elements from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits to cut out three hearts from Red Glimmer Paper, they are also adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Finally I sprinkled some sequins in the upper right and adhered them with Crystal Effects. I love the way the heart looks “clipped” to the side of the banner! A fun simple Valentine for your love! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge and the opening video from the concert! Thanks very much for coming by and enjoy your Saturday my friends! 🙂
