It was actually warm here yesterday, well, warm is a relative term, it was 34 degrees! Which feels somewhat like a heat wave compared to -10. Tomorrow it’s supposed to go down to -15 that’s without the wind chill! Now that’s cold for NY! I may need to be chiseled off of the sidewalk at some point! Yesterday was a pretty good day at work, I had lunch with my friend Robin and it was my friend Christina’s birthday so there were some Red Velvet cupcakes to be had! I definitely ate too much! When I got to my parents Daniel was there! He was running around like always and wanting to be everywhere that he shouldn’t be! He is still the cutest! When I came home I went straight into the Stampin’ Galley, I had quite a few projects to get done, I forgot there is a Control Freaks Blog Tour this evening so I had to get those cards done! Be sure to check back here around 9:00pm to take the tour! And let’s not forget that tomorrow is Friday, freezing Friday as it will be know this week!
The first card that I made last night is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. I want to thank Narelle for choosing my card as her pick for last week’s challenge! Now here is this week’s sketch…
Loads of possibilities! I stayed very true to the sketch and had fun with it! The base for today’s card is Whisper White Card Stock. My diagonal strip is a piece of paper from the Birthday Bash Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack backed with a piece of Night of Navy. My ballon is cut out with the Balloon Framelits, once from a piece of Bermuda Bay and again from a piece of Vellum Card Stock. I used the stamps from the Celebrate Today Photopolymer Stamp Set to heat emboss the confetti on the Bermuda Bay balloon in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and the Happy Birthday on the Vellum one in Calypso Coral Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Some 2-Way Glue holds the balloons together and some Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere it to the card. The bow is a piece of Gold Foil Sheet and is also cut out with the Balloon Framelits and adhered with some more 2-Way Glue. A piece of Whisper White Baker’s Twine is adhered in a few spots with Crystal Effect to give it the fun curves. To finish off the card I adhered some sequins from Doodlebug and Pretty Pink Posh with Crystal Effects randomly on the top half of the card. I love the colors and the fun Designer Series Paper, so bright and cheery, perfect for a birthday! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Thanks for stopping by and I wish you all a very good Thursday! 🙂
