Golden Hugs – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th

Home / Blog / Golden Hugs – Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th

Hi all! I hope that you had a happy and safe Independence Day! I started my day yesterday by picking up my friend Chantal and heading over to Long Beach. Her Granddaughter takes surfing lessons so we went to watch. While we were there we saw a whole bunch of Dolphins in the water just off the beach. Who knew that we had Dolphins in the waters here?! You can see the kids in the water…

Before heading back Chantal and I had a nice brunch at a local restaurant. It was great to get to spend some time with her! I dropped her off and then stopped by my house before heading over to Stephanie’s for a BBQ. There were a bunch of my peeps there and we had a really nice time! Today I have some crafting to do and a lot of cleaning. πŸ˜€

It’s time for my Solo Post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog! You can also see this post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog at 11:00AM today. Be sure and stop by there too! I did another card with a bunch of layers! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Black 110lb. I used the Concord & 9th Select-A-Size Edge Dies to cut a piece of Lobster and Gold Mirror Card. On the Lobster I heat embossed the hugs from the Concord & 9th Cuddles & Hugs Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder. The two layers are adhered to the card with E-Z Runner Ultra Strong. A few Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins and the card is done! I love the edge dies and the nice simple hugs greeting! I hope that you like my card for my July Solo Post over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Blog!Β Don’t forget that you can follow us onΒ InstagramΒ andΒ Facebook!

  1. Hi Justin:
    Those edge dies are gorgeous. I have seen them but had no idea they were so beautiful, especially using the foil paper. This would be an amazing card to send to someone going through a difficult time and we all have those times. The card is beautiful.
    I didn’t realize dolphins came up and into the Long Island sound. I thought they pretty much stayed in warmer waters. What a thrill that must have been to get to see them. So glad to hear you had a wonderful celebratlry 4th of July. Love and hugs to you my friend. Have yourself a Wondrous Wednesday! XXOO πŸ™‚

      I had no idea that we had dolphins along the south shore, it was so neat to see! Love and hugs to you! XOXO πŸ™‚

  2. Rich and elegant. And can easily be made from scraps on your desk, or I should say mine. My scraproom is still clean, but my desk is another story.

    I love dolphins, everytime we went to Boston I mnade sure we went whale or dolphin watching.

    1. Thank you Linda! My room is a disaster and the clean up has begun! UGH! It’s going to take forever!
      Dolphins are great! I went whale watching in Boston and saw about 24 of them! πŸ™‚
