I woke up this morning to rain, better than snow and it will help to melt what is left of the snow that we had. Yesterday was a nice day! Work was quiet and I managed to get caught up on most everything that I had pending. After work I stopped by the Post Office to get a package that was supposed to be delivered but I guess was forgotten. I wanted to get it yesterday so that our lovely mail lady wouldn’t just launch in onto the steps in the rain like she usually does! Last night dinner was spent with my friends Anthony and Bill. We stopped by Michaels to see Taylor before heading to Friday’s. We had the endless appetizers and the first round was the new Siracha wings, they were quite tasty! They were followed by garlic parmesan wings, pot stickers and more wings! I think I may sprout some feathers today from all of the chicken I had! LOL! I came home and made my card for today while Skyping with my friend Eva! We have something in the works that I’ll be able to tell you about in April! It’s going to be lots of fun!
My little card that I made last night is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…
I wanted to use a new background stamp that I got yesterday that I thought went perfectly with the anchor from the Guy Greetings Set! My card base for today is Whisper White Card Stock. The panel in the middle is the Hero Arts Waves Background Stamp, I used my Stampin’ Write Markers in Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay and Garden Green to ink it and stamped it on Soft Sky. It’s backed with a piece of Bermuda Bay and adhered to the card with some fun foam behind it to give it a little lift. A strip of Garden Green goes down the left side. My greeting and anchor are from the Guy Greetings Photopolymer Stamp Set, the greeting is heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a piece of Island Indigo, I flagged the right side and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The anchor is heat embossed on Vellum and cut out with my Paper Snips, a little 2-Way Glue holds it in place. A scattering of some Green with Envy Hazel & Ruby – The Makery Sequins and a few from Pretty Pink Posh complete the card. I absolutely love the colors and the sequins are so cool! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thank you all very much for coming by to see me, you make all the effort well worth it! Have a craft Saturday! 🙂
