Yesterday was a very good day! I did wake up late but managed to still get most of the stuff done that I wanted to. Heather came by for breakfast and Andrew stopped by too! It was nice to catch up with Andrew, we have both been really busy lately and I forgot how much fun I have with him. We are going to go to the movies on Tuesday night to see Insurgent, can’t wait for that! After Andrew left I headed over to the Scrap-A-Latte and finished up helping Renee prep for class tonight. I also gave her the six cards that I made using some of the scrapbooking supplies that she sells. I wanted to show how you can use them for making really neat cards too! I hung out there and chatted for a while, some more down time! When I got home I Skyped with Eva while I made some cards for this week. Like I said, a very nice day indeed! As promised here is the video of Satellite Lane’s performance at Harmony Sweeps. Forgive the wobble, I was resting my iPhone on my friend Anthony’s wheelchair!
Pretty cool that they did a skit and not just some songs! 🙂
Well, it’s Monday and you know what that means, it’s time for this week’s Paper Players challenge…
My friend Andrea sent me a fun stamp set and I just had to use it! My card base is Whisper White Card Stock and the background is a piece of Kraft Card Stock that I embossed with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The panel is a piece of paper from the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack and is backed with a piece of Basic Black. I tucked three banners in Mossy Meadow, Always Artichoke and Pear Pizzaz under it. The pickles are all heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on the same colors and cut out with my Paper Snips. I used a Gelly Roll Black pen for their eyes, makes them look a little more realistic! They are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is heat embossed in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Pear Pizzaz and punched out with the Scallop Oval Punch. A few sequins from Hazel & Ruby and Pretty Pink Posh are sprinkled on the left side of the panel and finish the card! I think that it’s a really fun stamp set and there is a little bit of an inside joke about the pickle! LOL! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players sketch challenge. I also hope that you enjoyed the video and as always, thank you so much for stopping by! Have a magnificent Monday! 🙂
