Oh work… do you know what my favorite part is? Doing other people’s jobs! Love cleaning up after other people too! Just the best! Anyway, it was decided at some point during the day that Brian, Heather and I would go into Manhattan to get some street meat! I have never had this delicacy before and I can tell you that I probably will never partake in it again! Chicken and rice from a street vendor on 63rd and Sixth Avenue, no thanks! It’s good that I can say that I tried it once and lived to talk about it! LOL! Brian and Heather love it, me… not so much! I am certain that I will be paying for it today at some point! Still, the ride in and back with the stereo nice and loud was worth it! On the way home the choice was Zedd live from the iTunes Festival at SXSW! Forty minutes of EDM bliss! I have a very varied taste in music. We all know that Sam is my favorite but I can also appreciate a little Carrie Underwood, Easton Corbin, Taylor Swift, Zedd, Knife Party and even the occasional Van Halen! Like I said, very wide taste in music! A good way to end a day!
Wednesday, well that means that I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for this week’s sketch challenge…
I used some of my favorite Stampin’ Up! products along with some other faves from Mama Elephant and Simon Says Stamp! The base of the card is Whisper White Card Stock and the front is a piece of Mossy Meadow. For my background and “picture” I used some of the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack. A strip of Crushed Curry goes down the left side. My photo frame is the Mama Elephant Polaroid Fun Creative Cuts cut from a piece of Whisper White. The piece of DSP is cut slightly larger than the frame adhered to the back with 2-Way Glue. I used the leaf from Kinda Eclectic, stamped in Mossy Meadow, and the die that I got from Dies By Dave on Esty to cut it out. The leaves are tucked behind the picture frame that is adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. For the Be I used the Simon Says Stamp Be Sentiment Craft Die and some Mossy Meadow. The creative is from the Simon Says Stamp Be Sentiments and is stamped it in Mossy Meadow on Crushed Curry with the end flagged. The two butterflies, also from Kinda Eclectic, are stamped in Crushed Curry and punched out with the Elegant Butterfly and the Bitty Butterfly Punches and adhered to the picture with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A few Doodlebug and Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins are scattered around and they finish off the card. Still love that Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper and the Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge!
