Well, it was warm enough today to go outside without a jacket! You couldn’t stay outside for very long! LOL! But you didn’t freeze instantly! The sun was shining too and the snow has started to melt, which creates big ponds everywhere but I’ll take that over white flakes from the sky! Work was pretty good, not crazy. I watched the Apple Keynote on the new Apple Watch and yes, I must possess one immediately! It’s like a Dick Tracy communicator! You can take calls and do all sorts of things right on your wrist! Yes, it’s $400, but that’s what you would pay for a really good watch anyway. Here is the part where I’m convincing myself to spend the money! See how that works?! Anyway, the pre-order starts on April 10th and the watch is available on April 24th! I can’t wait! How many other techies out there will will be sporting a new Apple Watch? Oh, there is one that is solid 18 karat gold and goes for $17,000!! WHAT?! Makes $400 seem cheap! LOL!
It’s Tuesday so it’s time for this week’s Stampin’ Up! Weekly Deals…
Now on to the card for today. It’s for the SUO Challenges Easter Fun challenge. I have to tell you that I don’t really ever sit there and look at a card that I make and think, oh I really love this one, but this one I really do love! My card base is Whisper White Card Stock and the card front is a piece of Blushing Bride. I stamped the image from the Indescribable Gift Stamp Set in Versa-Mark and heat embossed it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The image is watercolored using Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzaz and Soft Suede Ink. My greeting is from the same set and is heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I adhered the Watercolor Paper to a piece of Brushed Gold Metallic Card Stock and then adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love simplicity, the softness of the image and the variation in color. I’m really enjoying the watercoloring with the inks, one day I will use actual watercolors! You also don’t realize how detailed the image is until you spend some time coloring it in. I really do hope that you enjoyed my card for the SUO Challenges Easter Fun challenge. I had a lot of fun making the card! Be sure and stop by the blog to see what the other design team members have come up with. Thank you so much for coming by to see me! Have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂
