What an amazingly gorgeous day here yesterday! I had the top down in the car and it was glorious! It’s funny how just driving in my convertible makes everything right with the world again! I FaceTimed with Andrea a bit in the morning and then went over to see Heather for lunch. She grilled up some chicken and we had delicious salads! When I got back to the house I went next door to see Daniel for a little bit, he was going with my parents to Carvel to get ice cream, his favorite! Around 4:30 Heather came by and we ran to BJ’s and Target to pick up a few things, she dropped me back home and Danielle was supposed to stop by but she got stuck at work so I headed back over to Heather’s. She surprised me with an amazing dinner! We all like a little food porn from time to time so here it is…

Heather Dinner 3-23-2016

Chicken Français with baby potatoes and a nice salad! It really was delicious! After dinner we ran to Big Lots and then came back and I had a walnut brownie with a nice cup of coffee. Such a lovely day!

Today I have my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge to share with you…

Paper Players #287

I went super clean and simple! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. My flower and leaves are from the Hero Arts Color Layering Hibiscus Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the flower in Hero Arts Butter Bar, Ultra Pink and Raspberry Jam with the center stamped in Butter Bar. The leaves are stamped in Simon Says Stamp Green Leaf and Olive and then all of them are cut out with my Scissors. I adhered the leaves to the card with E-Z Runner, positioned my flower and then stamped my greeting from the Hero Arts Share Handmade Kindness Photopolymer Stamp Set in Onyx Black. The flower and stamen are then adhered to the card with Foam Tape. You know that I had to add a few Pretty Pink Posh Marigold, Pumpkin and Shamrock Sequins for a little something extra! I say it all the time but I love the Hero Arts Color Layering Sets, I wanted my flower to have a bit of a graphic appearance and I’m quite happy with the results! I really hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today! Have a fantastic Thursday! 🙂
