That was definitely a nice surprise day off yesterday! I did manage to clean up the Stampin’ Galley a bit and then spent the better part of the day crafting! I also got to FaceTime with Maggie and Skyped with Andrea and Eva! An excellent way to spend the day while it snowed… all day! We got 6 inches and it got really cold again last night. I had dinner with my parents and Taylor and then after Taylor and I cleaned off my car and went to Target. I needed to get Winston some food and I was almost out of 1/2 & 1/2. I really do hope that the weathermen are right and that it will start to warm up next week. We, along with most of the rest of the country, have had more than enough Winter! Please feel free to make way for spring! Here are some pictures from yesterday.
You can see the line from where the last round of snow was!
I can usually walk under the tree, it’s about 3 feet off the ground under the weight of all of the snow.
It’s Friday!! It seems such a waste to go back to work for one day! LOL! But I guess we must! It’s a Fab Friday this week and we have a color challenge for you…
I got so in to making the card that I forgot to include one of the colors, see if you can guess which one it was! The card begins with a base of Whisper White Card Stock. Next up is a piece of Blushing Bride that I cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles. On top of that is a piece of paper from the Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper Pack. My main panel is a piece of Crumb Cake, also cut out with the Stitched Rectangles, I stamped the image from the Butterfly Basics Photopolymer Stamp Set in Versa-Mark and heat embossed it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. To color it in I scribbled some Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzaz and So Saffron Stampin’ Write Markers onto Clear-Mount Block and used a wet brush to watercolor the image. My greeting is from the Lovely Amazing You Photopolymer Stamp Set and is also heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The Blushing Bride panel is adhered to the card with SNAIL and the DSP and Crumb Cake are adhered to each other and then to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Doodlebug and Pretty Pink Posh Sequins adhering them with Crystal Effects. Finally I stamped the butterfly from the same set in Hello Honey on Hello Honey and punched it out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch. I love all of the layers slightly askew and the White embossing with the watercoloring is fun! I hope that you enjoyed my card for the Fab Friday color challenge. Don’t forget to pay a visit to the blog and see the rest of the design team’s projects! Thank you for stopping by and I wish us all an absolutely fantastic Friday! 🙂
