Happy Columbus Day! I hope that you are lucky enough to have the day off from work today! I’m happy to report that my Dad is home from the hospital, he came home yesterday. He is feeling much better thanks in part to all of your well wishes. I really can’t thank you all enough for keeping him in your thoughts. you guys are the best peeps ever! I even got to do some fun stuff yesterday! In the morning I took a ride into Manhattan with Heather to drop her brother off at Comic-Con. After that I went with her to look at some used cars, she is trying to find one for her brother. Boy is there a lot of garbage out there! LOL! After that I spent some time with my Dad and then watched a little TV and made my card for today. Felt so good to sit down in the Stampin’ Galley! Today I have some cleaning and other chores to do. What are you up to?

It’s time for a new challenge over on the Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th blog…

Shades of Concord & 9th means use any shade of blue or green! For my card is used the Aloha Friend Photopolymer Stamp Set and my MISITI to stamp the dashed strip onto a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Peacock and Jalapeño to create a background. The fabulous is from the same set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto a piece of 65lb Vellum. I used Multi-Matte Medium to adhere it to the card and added a scattering of Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins to complete the card! Simple and fun, and who doesn’t like to be told that they are fabulous?! I hope that you like my Design Team card for this month’s Where Creativity Meets Concord & 9th Shades of Concord & 9th Challenge!

  2. That’s good news, Justin, that your dad is home and you got to spend some time with him. Love this card. So creative to put the vellum greeting over the graphic background. Love it!! Have a great day!

  3. What a happy background you have created here Justin. Beautiful color combo for sure. So happy to hear your Dad is home and on the mend. I know lots of prayers went out for his recovery.

Wishing you a Magical Monday. XXOO 🙂

  4. Fabulous card! Love the colors. Glad you dad is home and doing well.

    I had a fairly good crafty weekend. I am so in love with all the galaxy backgrounds I am seeing. So I made a mess with my paints and distress inks, and I have white splatter everywhere but I made 6. Each different. what a cool technique

    1. Thank you Linda! Yes, good to have everything back to normal!
