Happy Black Friday! Are you out and standing in a line somewhere to get a 70″ TV for $200?!?! LOL! I used to do Black Friday years ago but now with online shopping I see no reason to be cold for an extended period of time! I was looking at the LED TV’s and it’s crazy to see how cheap they are now! They are a lot of good deals out there but it’s way too early for me to start Christmas shopping, I prefer to wait until days before. Not always a good idea but I do it every year and there is no sense living in denial. My friend Kim finished her Christmas shopping in September! Now that to me is just crazy! LOL! I trust that you all had a nice Thanksgiving! Mine was quiet, just my parents and Taylor for dinner and that was at 1:00. I took my friend Chantal to the airport, which I have never seen so empty in all the times that I have been there! Traffic was a little heavy on the way back but not too bad. I stopped at Michaels to see Taylor, she told me not to go up there, she wants no customers so they will close next year! Of course I had to go! LOL! I came home and crafted for a while, watched some TV and then off to bed. A quiet low key Thanksgiving and I was quite happy with that!
Today I have my card for this week’s fun Pals Paper Arts sketch…
Lots of circles! This was one of those sketches that I knew exactly what I was going to do as soon as I saw it! My card starts off with a base of Pool Party Card Stock and the background is a piece of Soft Sky. I used the Circles Collection Framelits to cut out some Silver Foil Sheet and “frames” for all of them. The frames are cut from Lost Lagoon, Pool Party, Basic Gray and Smoky Slate. Some Multi-Purpose Glue holds to frames to the foil sheet and them to the card. My greeting is from the Christmas Bliss Photopolymer Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Lost Lagoon. The left side is flagged and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I scattered a few Frosted Sequins around and adhered them with Crystal Effects to add a little more sparkle to the card. I like using the Crystal Effects to adhere the sequins because it dries nice and clear and you can’t see it in the holes in the middle of the sequins. And there you have my fun shiny circle card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge. I hope that you enjoyed the card and the post! Thanks for stopping by! Have a fabulous Friday everyone! 🙂
