Happy end of the week and start of the weekend! It was absolutely gorgeous here yesterday! In the 60’s so I took a ride over to Scrap-A-Latte with the top down in the car to see Renee. We got caught up and then I came back to my house and Daniel came over for a visit with my dad. He watched some Mickey Mouse and the Beanstalk and had a Lays Dark Chocolate Covered Potato Chip! I asked him if it was good and he said very good… more?! After dinner with my parents and brother and Daniel of course I ran to Target and then headed over to Heather’s for thirsty Thursday! It’s always nice to get the weekend started a little early! We really do have a good time and a really good laugh every time! This morning I have a few projects to finish and then I’m taking Brian and Kim to the airport with the kids. They are taking them on a surprise trip to Disney for the weekend! A very nice early Christmas prezzy! My dad decorated the front yard yesterday and Daniel was inspecting everything for him. I love this picture of him standing next to the Santa that they have had since I was little!
Santa needs a bit of touching up! He still looks good for his age! LOL!
It’s time for the last Fab Friday of 2015! This time around we have some colors…
I decided that I wanted to do a little simple watercoloring! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My background is a piece of Pool Party that I embossed with the We R Memory Keepers Wood Embossing folder, this time the birch trees. On the left I adhered a strip of Real Red and Mossy Meadow and then adhered the panel to the card base. My tag is a piece of Tim Holtz Watercolor Paper that I die cut with the Clearly Besotted Rounded Tag Die. My bird is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Using the Hero Arts Bird Rubber Stamp. I scribbled some Pool Party, Real Red and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Write Markers onto an acrylic block and used a wet paintbrush to color him in, I dried him and then added another layer to give him a more feathery look. The greeting is form the Hero Arts Color Layering Dimensional Bird and is also stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. I tied a piece of Hemptique Black Natural Hemp Cord through the top and then adhered the tag to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. I added a few Studio Calico Wood Stars to complete the card. I am quite fond of that odd little bird, he’s sort of cute! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team Card for the last Fab Friday challenge of 2015!
