Monday… sigh… the weekend flew by as always. It was a nice day here yesterday, sunny and in the 50’s again. I did some crafty things in the morning and then Heather came by and picked me up. We went to Target, I got to use my watch to pay for my coffee at Starbucks, and then stopped at the deli to get some lunch. She had to run home and attend to her laundry but came back over and got me so we could run to Macy’s. It’s her birthday next week and she had received some gift cards a little early. There was a Michael Koors bag that she wanted so we picked that up and then I had a look at the mens clothing. I found some shirts and got to pay for them with my Apple Watch too! The lady at the register was a little surprised when I held my watch up to the credit card reader and it beeped! LOL! I love being all futuristic! Maybe someday soon I will be able to get rid of my wallet all together! After I got home I finished up some cards and the spent some time getting sucked into YouTube! I have to stop doing that! How was your weekend?
The good thing about today is it’s time for another Paper Players challenge…
I have some more new stuff that I have been meaning to use so I did that on today’s card! My card begins with a base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My background is a piece of Island Indigo. I used the Simon Says Stamp Circle Border Die for my Pool Party piece that goes across the top. The three banners are Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Night of Navy. I used the Simon Says Stamp Large Tags Die to cut out some Neenah Solar White 80lb and stamped the greeting from the Simon Says Stamp Big Birthday Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set using the new Hero Arts Ombre Ink in Pool to Navy. A piece of Whisper White Baker’s Twine is tied through the top. I adhered a piece of Fun Foam to the back of the background and the back of the tag and then adhered them to the card. My “Cheers” is cut out from Pool Party using the Simon Says Stamp Cheers! Die. I used a little Ranger Multi Matte Medium to adhere it to the card. I’m loving that ombre ink, such a cool effect! This card will be for my friend Anthony who’s birthday just happens to be today! Happy Birthday Anthony! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge. Thanks so much for coming by to see me today! Have a magnificent Monday! 🙂
