So today is a little bit of a milestone for me! I started blogging back on August 6, 2011 and I have enjoyed every minute of it! I get to share my days and creativity with some of the most amazing and kind people in the world! You all tell me that I get to inspire you but you also inspire me every day with your kind comments and little “chats” that we have! I had no idea that I would make this a daily part of my life when I started but I’m so glad that that is what it has become! Blogging for me, making a card and sharing some of my life and adventures, has become as routine as brushing my teeth! I look forward to making my card and then typing the post every day. The best part of it all is reading the comments! And I have responded to every comment since the start and have made some wonderful friends in the process! And as you have seen in the title of today’s post it’s my 1600th! That is just crazy! So I want to thank you all for coming along on my little journey and I look forward to the next 1600!
Yesterday was a good day! I stopped at Heather’s for lunch again, those panini’s are just too good to pass up! From there I headed over to Scrap-A-Latte to chat with Renee and prepare for class. Danielle stopped and got us some Blaze Pizza for dinner, her first time halving it and she loved it! Class was great as it always is and I got to catch up with Danielle which was awesome! On the way home I stopped at Heather’s again and had a glass of wine with her and Stephanie, what better way to end the day?! This afternoon I’ll head back over to the store for the second night of Card Class, can’t wait!
My card that I have for you today is for this week’s Paper Players challenge…
I’m not gonna lie, I was a little stumped by this one! After some playing around I finally came up with something that I liked! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangles to cut out a piece of Tempting Turquoise and adhered it to the card a little over to the left and top with SNAIL. Next up is a piece of paper from the Crate Paper Kiss, Kiss 6×6 Paper Pad, it’s cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Squares and adhered to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. My two hearts are cut out using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Heart Stackables from Melon Mambo and Real Red. The larger is adhered with SNAIL and the smaller with Foam Tape. I used the Simon Says Stamp Scribble Heart and Arrow Craft Dies and the Lawn Fawn Scripty XOXO to cut out some Black 110lb and adhered them both to the card with Multi-Matte Medium. Over the arrow is a Melon Mambo heart punched out with the EK Success Small Heart Punch and it’s adhered with Foam Tape. For a little sparkle I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Aquamarine, Marshmallow, Pink Peonies and Raspberry Sequins. I do think that the card is neat and would make a great Valentine or even a just because I love you card! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players color challenge! Thank you sooooooo much for coming by today to celebrate my 1600th blog post too! Have an absolutely amazing Friday! 🙂
