It was a slippery ride to work yesterday morning, they seem to have issues plowing the streets around here! But the sun did come out and started to melt some of the snow, the main roads were clear on my way home. For lunch today Robin and I went for Sushi. I sat and caught up with Danielle for a bit today at work, I miss seeing her all the time. After work I went and got my haircut and then headed over to Scrap-A-Latte to see Renee and help pick out some paper and card stock for this month’s card class. I got back to my parent’s just in time to see little Daniel for a bit. He’s so funny, he yells a lot and Winston doesn’t like loud noises. When you say to Daniel be nice to Winston he leans over and puts his head on him, it’s so cute! I’ll have to try and get a picture the next time I see him. I have an extra card to share with you at the bottom of the post today, it’s the card that I made for my friend Robin for her birthday so be sure and scroll past the supplies list to see it!
I also had to share this video that I saw yesterday, wouldn’t it be nice if every just accepted people for who they are and didn’t concern themselves with anything else?! There is so much wrong in the world and it always has something to do with someone not liking what someone else is doing. Let’s just love each other, there are far more important things to concern ourselves with.
The main card that I have for you today is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge…
I immediately thought St. Patrick’s Day but decided to go in a completely different direction! My card base is Whisper White Card Stock and the front of it is covered in a piece of Kraft Card Stock. My background is a piece of the Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum. Before I adhered that to the card I heat embossed the sentiment from the Lovely Amazing You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. My tag is created using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and the Project Life Corner Rounder from a piece of Basic Black. I threaded a piece of Hemptique Natural Hemp Twine thought the top. The leaves are cut out with the Flower Frenzy Bigz Die from a piece of Garden Green. My flower is from the Petal Potpourri Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum. I used the Flower Medallion Punch and the 1/2″ Circle Punch to punch out the pieces and then adhered them to each other and to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Not too complicated and I love the layout, I’ve used it a few times! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge! Don’t forget to school past the supplies list to see the extra card for today! Thank you for stopping by and have a super Saturday! 🙂
