Well, I woke up to 3 inches of snow this morning! No thanks! LOL! It was so windy and cold here yesterday too! Is it too early to start complaining that I can’t wait for Spring?! Despite the frigid day I still got a lot done. Last night we had an early Thirsty Thursday at my house, Heather was a little tipsy so I drove her home and then took her car over to her this morning. I’ll be running more errands and checking more things off my to-do list today! 😀

I managed to get a card made this morning for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge

I wanted to use the December My Monthly Hero Kit again. First I used the Hero Arts City Skyline Fancy Die, an add-on, to cut out a piece of Gold Glitter Card. I adhered it to a piece of Black 110lb that I rounded the corners on with my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper. The moon and the starts are from the Stamp Set included and are heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder. Onto my card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock I added a strip of the Gold Glitter Card and then adhered my panel with E-Z Runner and Fun Foam. My greeting is also from the Stamp Set and is heat embossed in more White Embossing Powder onto a strip of Blue Jay. A few Black 3D Foam Squares hold it in place. The bottom looked a little plain so I added a few Nautical Sparkle and Brushed Gold Sequins along with some dots with my Gold Signo Gel Pen. Love that fun City Scape Die and the unusual greeting! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge! Thank you for your visit and I wish you all a super Thursday! 🙂

  1. Gorgeous. I did not get any add ons this month, I was not too sure about this set. But i did consider this die and now I’m sold. Need it!!!! (Thank you for being such an enabler)

    Better you get three inches then me, sorry, I’ll take my inch any day, although with our winds it is in the low teens here. anyway, I’m off of work for 5 glorious days!!!!!!!! Finally got my eyes checked today, perfect distance, YES!!! But boy my close vision is sad. But i was tired of using cheaters and not being able to see. Two weeks and crafting, cross stitching will be so much easier. Cant wait, We are off to Iowa tomorrow, My son graduates with his Masters in Finance. so proud of him, Today I am finishing up my tree and putting my village up. Hubby is actually helping. Shopping all done so sunday thru Tuesday will be cleaning and decorating house. Then planning CHristmas dinner. I’m hosting, I’m doing an Ugly sweater theme. Invites were done a while back, table decorations done, all I have left is I’m making the MFT lip balm holders for the girls in my family and my co workers. Then relax and enjoy!

    Take care
