Yes, I’m quite late this morning! I had a nice day yesterday, not too busy at work. I came home and picked up Taylor and then headed over to Scrap-A-Latte for the card class. I always like to get there early, we grabbed some dinner from Panera and finished up last minute stuff. I had told my friend Brian that I thought he should come and he did! Everyone had a good time! One of my friends from Facebook, Denisse, came too! It was very nice to get to meet her in person! We finished up around 9:30, and helped Renee clean up. My friend Fred had called and asked me to meet him at the bar near my office for a drink. Brian said that he would come so we went there and Taylor took my car home. Fred is a very funny, nice guy but he’s even funnier when he’s had a few! LOL! After the bar we headed to the Diner for a little snack. I haven’t been to the diner that late in years! By the time I got home it was 1:45 and I thought I’ll make my card in the morning. So I got up this morning and made a “quick” card, not really! I didn’t think that I would have to wait for the pieces to dry before assembling the card, so that’s why I’m late! LOL! Here are a few pictures from class last night…
And there I am with Renee! So much fun!
So my “quick” card is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge…
My card starts off with a base of Basic Black Card Stock. To create the shaker I used a piece of Basic Gray for the base. The images are from the Embellished Events Stamp Set and are stamped in Encore Silver Metallic Ink, I hit them with the Heat Tool to make sure that they were nice and dry. A few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins are adhered over the bubbles with Crystal Effects. My frame is cut out with the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangles and the center with the Ovals Collection Framelits. a piece of Window Sheet is adhered to the frame and two layers of Fun Foam make the space for my silver seed beads. The congrats is a die from Ellen Hutson and is cut out from a piece of Silver Foil Sheet, some 2-Way Glue adheres it to the card. Not such a quick card but I do love the way it came out, lots of sparkle and shine! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge! Thank you so much for stopping by, I wish you all a super Saturday! 🙂
