You know when you have one of those days, the ones that seem a lot longer than a regular day? That was my Wednesday. It was dreary and rainy for most of the day, well, drizzly. Work was a little on the crazy side. Lots of running around and I can prove that because my Apple Watch tells me that I walked 5 miles! Under normal circumstances I would say that being busy makes the day move along but that wasn’t the case. I came home, had some dinner and spoke to Andrea for a bit and then started to work on my project. I also FaceTimed with Michael for a while, that is always a nice way to end the day. Before I knew it it was 11:00 and I still had a bunch of blog stuff to do. So wait, did the day move fast or slow?! Let’s just say that it was an unusual day! Tonight I’m accompanying my friend Marissa to the LI-LGBT Network Gala. The company that I work for is a sponsor. I’ll try to get some pictures of us all dressed up, it should be lots of fun!
My card for today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. I want to thank Kim for choosing me as her King of Clean for her sketch challenge from last week! You can see the winners post HERE and my original post HERE. Now a look at this week’s sketch…
I received a package in the mail yesterday with some more crafty goodies inside so I had to use at least one of them on today’s card! The base is the usual! For my background I heat embossed the Hardwood Background Stamp on a piece of Whisper White using some Ranger Silver Pearl Embossing Powder (the new goodie!). It’s mounted to the card with SNAIL and Fun Foam. My two flagged strips are pieces of paper from the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack. I used the Lawn Fawn Large and Small Stitched Rectangles to cut out a piece of Basic Black to serve as a frame for some Vellum. It’s adhered to the card with Foam Tape. A piece of Daffodil Delight is cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Hello Die and heat embossed with Simon Says Stamp Clear Fine Detail Embossing Powder. Some 2-Way Glue adheres it to the card. I really love that Silver Pearl Embossing Powder and I think that it looks so cool with the Hardwood Stamp on White! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thanks for stopping by an enjoy your Thursday! 🙂
