Hey there peeps! It’s Thursday! Yay! It was a heat wave here yesterday, we got up to 40 degrees! LOL! That’s a lot warmer than we have had in a very long time! I had a nice day yesterday, when I got home Daniel was at my parent’s so I spend a little time with him. His asks you “what’s dis?” and that means that he wants you to take him to whatever he is pointing at. We spent a little time opening and closing the microwave door and then we played with the magnets on the fridge. He is too funny! I stopped by my house and grabbed the stuff that I had to take to Scrap-A-Latte and then headed out. It’s always nice to go there and see Renee, it was just the two of us, well, we Skyped with my friend Andrea in Colorado for a bit. We had a good laugh and got all of the stuff ready for card class. There are 16 people and there are four cards, lots to cut, but fun! No, I didn’t manage to leave without buying something. I got the new Tim Holtz Bird Crazy Stamp Set and a Authentique 6 x6 Paper Pad called Classique:Beauty. Not too bad! I stopped by and saw Brian, Kim and Heather on the way home. Brian had made chicken parmesan with Panko breadcrumbs and fresh mozzarella baked to perfection, that’s what was for dinner! Not a bad way to end a Wednesday!
When I did finally get home last night I sat down and made my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge…
Ahh… tall & skinny, I do love them! Sometimes when I sit down to make a card I just kind of let it happen. I don’t have any particular idea in my head. That’s what I did last night, I’m not sure if I love the color combo, you’ll have to let me know what you think. The base for the card is Basic Black Card Stock and the background is a piece of Smoky Slate. My piece in the middle is So Saffron. For the main panel I embossed a piece of Wisteria Wonder with the Spring Flowers Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and backed it with some Basic Black. A strip of Pear Pizzaz is flagged on the right and adhered to the panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The flower is from the Petal Potpourri Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a piece of Vellum. I used my Daffodil Delight and Wisteria Wonder Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers to color it on the back side. Some of the Clear Foam Adhesive holds it to the banner. The you is one of the Hello You Thinlits cut from a piece of Basic Black and the heat embossed multiple times with Simon Says Stamp Clear Fine Detail Embossing Powder. A few drops of 2-Way Glue adheres it to the card. I’m still really loving the way the Thinlit greetings look all shiny like that! So there you have my unusual card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. You will have to let me know what you think of the color combo! Thanks so much for you time today! Have an excellent Thursday! 🙂
