Well that was a quick Saturday! I managed to get some stuff done around the house in the morning and then around noon I went over and got Heather and we ran some errands. I had to got to BestBuy to return something and then Target to do the same. Of course you can’t go in Target just to return something now can you?! I did find a jacket on clearance for $20 so I had to have that! We went back to Heather’s and she shared some more of her delicious Creme Brûlée and some other sweet treats. I had some leftover pizza for lunch and then came home and worked on some projects. I skyped with Eva for a bit while I colored in some images for my card class. A good day, but it went way too quickly! I’m supposed to go into Manhattan this morning, I haven’t looked outside to see what lasts night’s weather brought! Guess I should take a peek… it’s not too bad. Now to take the train or drive?! Decisions!
Today’s card is a just because one. I was inspired my one that I saw on Pinterest. I used a color combo that I haven’t before too. The base is Whisper White Card Stock and the background is a piece of Mossy Meadow that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangles. In the middle of that is a piece of paper from the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack, also cut out with the Stitched Rectangles. My tag is a piece of Smoky Slate, I stamped the Dictionary Background Stamp in Memento Tuxedo Black and used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and the Project Life Corner Rounder to create the tag. Some Hemptique Black Hemp Twine is threaded through the hole and left extra long. My flower is from the Petal Potpourri Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Smoky Slate Stampin’ Emboss Powder on So Saffron and punched out with the Flower Medallion Punch. The greeting is from the Crazy About You Photopolymer Stamp Set and is also heat embossed on Mossy Meadow. The tag, flower and greeting are all adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I really like the grays with the Mossy Meadow and I think that the So Saffron gives it just the right amount of pop! I hope that you like my card for today. Thanks so very much for taking a little time out of your day to come and see me! Have a super Sunday peeps! 🙂
