Ahh… the sweetness of Friday is upon us! This was a long week, lots going on and I am thinking the weekend will be a busy one too! I got a lot accomplished at work and the weather was cool and overcast again but they say that most of the weekend will be nice. I ran to Scrap-A-Latte straight from work to talk about next month’s stamp sets with Renee. We have narrowed it down to three companies! LOL! Not much progress! I came home and stopped my the Parent’s to have some dinner and then to my house to work on my card for today. I Skyped with Andrea for a bit and then my crafty friend Sandy stopped by! We talked about the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog and then did a show and tell of the other goodies that we have recently acquired. Always great to see Sandy! Tonight I’m out for some dinner with Anthony and Bill and then we are going to meet up with Marissa and one of her friends and go to the bar for al little while. Should be a very good way to start the weekend! What are your plans for the upcoming holiday?!
My craftiness last night yielded my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge…
I wanted to keep the card simple and use some new goodies that I recently acquired! The base is Whisper White and the front is covered in a piece of Basic Black. My background is a piece of the NEW Mint Macaroon Card Stock that I embossed with the “Vintage” Pretty Print Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, still one of my favorites! I recently got some new dies from DiesByDave on Etsy that coordinate with the By The Tide Stamp Set. His dies are great and if you haven’t been to his shop in a while you need to pay him a visit, he has added some new dies! I heat embossed the shells in Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder on the NEW Tip Top Taupe and then used the dies to perfectly cut them out. A little Foam Tape adheres them to the background. My greeting is from the Simon Says Stamp Handwritten Borders Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum. I adhered it to the shells with a little Ranger Multi-Matte Medium. Like I said a very simple but elegant card! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge! I thank you for your visit and wish you all an absolutely amazing Friday! 🙂
