A very happy Wednesday to you! I’m having a wonderful time down here in Florida! Maggie and I took a little road trip to Lakeland to visit a scrapbook store called Violet’s! Over 4,100 square feet of crafty goodness! There are big rooms and little rooms filled with paper and embellishments! A whole room with rubber stamps and tons of dies and other essentials! I think that you could go in there quite a few times and still find new things! Here is a picture of the storefront and if you ever find yourself in Lakeland you must go and pay them a visit!
After the store went and had lunch at Steak ‘n Shake, Maggie had never been to one before! She said that it was quite good and loved the burger and milkshake! We came back to the hotel and met her sister-in-law Jackie and headed over to Epcot. Jackie is a Cast Member at Disney and one of the sweetest people! We wandered around through the countries and had some food and drink. A very fun way to spend an evening! Here are the three of us in front of the sphere…
Now on to today’s post! I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog with our sketch challenge for this week…
I looked at the sketch and thought that the circle would make a good place for a heart! The card begins with a base of Real Red Card Stock. My background is a piece of Basic Black, I heat embossed the stamp from Gorgeous Grunge in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and adhered it to the base. A strip of Real Red goes across the middle. I used one of the dies from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits to cut out the circles and then heat embossed my greeting from the Countless Sayings 2 Photopolymer Stamp Set, also in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Before I adhered the strip to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals I added two pieces of Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper punched out with the Banner Punch to the lower left. The heart is cut out from Gold Glimmer Paper using the Simon Says Stamp Sketch Heart Die and a few gold sequins sprinkled around complete the card. I really do love that Sketch Heart Die, especially cut from our Gold Glimmer Paper! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge!

Thank you for coming by to hear about my goings on and I wish you all a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂
