Did I mention that I woke up to a light dusting on snow yesterday morning?! Umm… old man Winter you can go now! It was a little chilly here yesterday but not too bad. I slept a little late, I guess getting up at 5:00am Saturday and going to bed at 1:00am on Sunday morning warranted a little extra sleep! LOL! Heather called me and asked if I wanted to go over to her house for breakfast, umm… yeah! She makes a pretty good breakfast so of course! We ran some errands and then went by George’s house to see the new kitty. His name is Boris and he is a Bengal. He is very friendly and quite vocal, but really he is so cute!
He is cute, right?! After all of the morning shenanigans I came home and Sandy stopped by for a bit. I chatted with Andrea on Skype and worked on my projects for the week. I also spent some time talking to Mr. Trent. Always good to catch up with him!
I’m very happy that you enjoyed all of the cards from the class at Scrap-A-Latte and the CYCI card too from yesterday! I’ll post the next four cards from February’s class this weekend!
Well, it’s Monday and that means that it’s Paper Players time! Thanks to Joanne for choosing my pickle card from last as her choice for A Cut Above! They have one of my favorite challenges this week too, a Tic-Tac-Toe…
Hmm… Claire made it quite difficult to choose by putting my favorite right in the middle! LOL! I finally settled on the middle row across, it gave me a good excuse to use some of my new goodies that I picked up from the stamp show! The card base is Whisper White Card Stock with the entire card front covered in a piece of Bermuda Bay. I took a piece of Brushed Gold Metallic Card Stock and used the Impression Obsession Fancy Cut Out Border Die on the right side. I adhered the panel to the card with Foam Tape. The feather is another Impression Obsession Die called Lg. Feather. I used Bermuda Bay and Garden Green Ink and the Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool on a piece of Whisper White. The feather is then die cut from that paper and adhered to the card with Multi-Purpose Glue. Across the bottom is one more die, the Impression Obsession Greetings Top Edgers cut from a piece of Bermuda Bay with a strip of Brushed Gold Metallic across it. Some more Foam Tape holds it in place. For a little more sparkle I adhered a few Hazel & Ruby The Makery Green with Envy and Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins randomly around the feather. So I have officially decided that Bermuda Bay and Gold with a little Garden Green is my favorite color combo! I also think that feather is my all time favorite too! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players sketch challenge from Claire! Your visits make my days better so thanks for stopping by! Have a good Monday everyone! 🙂
