Yay! It’s the weekend! I did have a nice Friday! When I got up yesterday morning and looked at the temperature it was 1 degree, I don’t think that I have ever seen that before and I hope to never see it again! I went to start my car and the front two tires were a little flat so they had to be filled. It’s not easy to get that cap off when you can’t feel your fingers! Work was good, my friend Robin and I went to Monty’s for pizza at lunch. Despite the fact that it was 16 degrees out! LOL! She has heated seats in her car and I wanted to take it back into the office with me! I came home and had dinner with the ‘rents and then made my card for today. Taylor came over and we ran out to Target. They still had some Valentine’s chocolate left and it was 70% off so I had to get some of that! Today I’m off to Manhattan for a little while and then I’m going to run out to see Renee at Scrap-A-Latte, weather permitting. We are to have some snow again and they aren’t sure how much. Fun!
Today’s card is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge…
I have been wanting to use this die that I have for a while and I thought that this sketch was perfect for it! The base for today’s card is Whisper White Card Stock and the background is a piece of Basic Gray. My strip down the left side is Pear Pizzaz that I embossed with the Large Polkadot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The die that I mentioned is the Ring Frame from Simon Says Stamp and is cut out from a piece of Pool Party. I used three of middles from the circles for my stamping. The greeting is from the Hello There Host Stamp Set and the swirls are from the Snuggles and Smooches Photopolymer Stamp Set. They are both heat embossed in Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder. I adhered the ring frame to the card with itty bitty pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals and the stamped circles are adhered with SNAIL. A few sequins from the Hazel & Ruby Green with Envy Collection are scattered around the card and adhered with Crystal Effects. I really love the color combination and the ring frame is just cool! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge. Thank you very much for visiting today! Have a simply lovely Saturday! 🙂
