Typeset Butterfly Thanks

Another late Friday night results in a late Saturday morning! It’s the domino effect! I had a good day yesterday! I went to lunch with my friend Marissa, we had some Monty’s pizza. I snuck out of work a little early hoping that my Apple Watch would get to the house early. It did finally get there at 5:30! I have to tell you that the box was not what I was expecting! It was pretty big for a watch but that was because the Apple experience begins with the packaging! LOL! It was presented quite nicely indeed! Set up was really simple and I was up and running in no time. You use Siri to do a lot of things with the watch which is pretty neat! The digital crown is also used a lot along with the touch screen. I’m really loving it and hardly took out my iPhone at all. Later on I went over to Brian & Kim’s with Taylor and Heather was there too. We had a fire pit night under the gazebo with the heater on too. It was really chilly and pretty windy but nice and toasty inside the gazebo! There was some Cupcake Red Velvet wine which always makes the evening better! A very nice time spent with my peeps! Here is the fire pit and my new toy!

Version 2

The screen on the watch is incredibly clear! I really does look just like an analog watch!!

Because I got home pretty late last night I made a quick card when I got up this morning. The card base is Whisper White Card Stock and the front is covered in a piece of Very Vanilla. I ran a piece of Retro Fresh This & That Designer Washi Tape down the right side. The panel is a piece of Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper and is backed with a piece of Very Vanilla. I adhered a piece of Fun Foam to the back before adhering it to the card. The flag is a piece of Basic Black. I used the Butterfly Thinlits to cut out a piece of Coastal Cabana and the Beautiful Wings Embosslit to cut out some more of the Typeset DSP and Coastal Cabana . They are layered on top of one another with Sticky Strip and Stampin’ Dimensionals. My greeting is some Very Vanilla and Whisper White cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Thanks Die. I layered them and then adhered them to the butterfly wings with some Multi-Purpose Glue. Ok, so maybe it wasn’t such a quick card! LOL! But I do love it! I hope that you like it too and thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a wonderful Saturday! 🙂
