Welcome to frigid Friday! Yes, this is technically my second post for today! It’s one of those rare occasions where the Control Freaks Blog Tour falls on a day where I have a Design Team post the next day! So it’s also bonus Friday! LOL! Yesterday was quite chilly but nothing compared to this morning with a high of 1, yes 1 degree! Yikes! With the wind chill it’s around -10! Double yikes! But yesterday Daniel was at my parents again! He was extra happy and he had his shirt on that I got him from Disney! Here we are, it’s been a while since we had a selfie!
I just can’t take how adorable he is! And he knows to smile for the camera! LOL! So, it’s Friday, I’ll be happier at 4:00 when work is done! I’m off to see Renee tomorrow and then into Manhattan on Sunday to see Isabella and Kim. Should be a good weekend! It’s supposed to rain on Sunday but be in the 40’s, I’ll take that! What are you all up to this weekend?
So my next card for today is for the Fab Friday challenge and this time around we have a sketch for you…
This was one of those sketches that I knew what I was going to do as soon as I saw it! I had the square cut out for a few days and just had to put the rest of the card together! The card base is Pool Party Card Stock. My shaker in the middle is a piece of Pool Party with a piece of Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum on top. They are cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares and Stitched Circles Dies. I backed it with a piece of Window Sheet. The stamp is form the Starburst Sayings Stamp Set and is stamped in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla. I used a double layer of Foam Tape to enclose the gold sequins and seed beads. Two pieces of Gold Glimmer Paper are cut out with the Banners Framelits and then again with the Stitched Circles and adhered on either side of the frame. I love all of the sparkle from the shaker and the colors remind me of Tiffany’s! I hope that you enjoyed my card for the Fab Friday sketch challenge. Stop by the blog to see what the rest of the design team has done with the sketch and make a card of your own to enter in the gallery! Thanks so much for spending some extra time with me today! Have a fabulous Friday and for the rest of you that are in the deep freeze, stay warm! 🙂
