It has started to get a little chilly here again and we are to go down to 38 today. Well, it was a nice taste of what’s to come! Work was good yesterday, I had my first class teaching the new software. It was good because I had my friend Casey there to help out. The rest of the day wasn’t too bad. I came home and Skyped with Andrea and the worked on a few projects. Taylor and I ran to Target, I wanted to get shoelaces. Apparently no one sells dress shoe shoelaces anymore! Nothing else exciting to report!
Today I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for this week’s sketch…
I wanted an über masculine card, one that would work well for a birthday or even Father’s day. The base of the card is Crumb Cake Card Stock and the background is a piece of paper form the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Squares. My circle is a piece of Natural Wood Sheet from EK Success cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Circles. A piece of Early Espresso is flagged on the bottom and then embossed with the “Vintage” Houndstooth Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. My shoes and greeting are from the Guy Greetings Photopolymer Stamp Set, the shoes are heat embossed in Early Espresso Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Crumb Cake and cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Squares and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is stamped in Early Espresso on a piece of Very Vanilla. My button is one of the “Vintage” Designer Naturals Buttons and it’s adhered with Glue Dots. I love the wood sheets, they give such nice texture and really do help make the card nice and masculine! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch. Don’t forget to stop by the blog to see what the rest of the design team has done with the sketch. I thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a very Happy Hump Day! 🙂
