Another lovely day here on Long Island. It wasn’t quite as warm as yesterday but no complaints. My day was very nice, I got up and puttered around the house for a bit and then went to meet Sandy and LeAnne to go to the Scrapbook store and meet up with Michael. LeAnne was up from PA to spend the weekend with Sandy. The ladies browsed around the store for a bit and I spoke to Renee and Michael. After they were done the four of us headed over to Panera for lunch. I got to use Apple Pay for the first time and it was pretty cool! Just touch your finger to the home button and my purchase was paid for! We had a nice lunch and even got the waitress to take our picture! So many craft people at one table! 🙂
After I came home and crafted for a bit. Andrew stopped by for a quick chat and I gave him some stuff to put in his car to help with his service engine soon light. I sat down and watched a movie and relaxed a bit. Working all of those hours on Friday made the weekend seen even shorter. And now we are back to Monday. Bleh!
Not all bad though because Monday’s mean Paper Players challenge time! This week we have a fun sketch from Nance…
When I saw the sketch I decided that I wanted a nice snowy shaker card so that’s what I made! My card base is Cherry Cobbler Card Stock. I embossed a piece of Garden Green with the On Point Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the background. To make my shaker I used those Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangles again! I’m a little addicted I think! I cut out a piece of Soft Sky and Window Sheet with one and then used two to cut out a piece of Crumb Cake that I stamped in Soft Suede with the Hardwood Background Stamp. Two pieces of Whisper White are cut out with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Dies and adhered to my Soft Sky base. The trees are from the Festival of Trees Photopolymer Stamp Set and Are stamped in Garden Green for the tree and Encore Gold Metallic for the dots. I used the Tree Punch to punch them out. The bird is from the same set and is stamped din Cherry Cobbler and cut out with my Paper Snips. The tree in the back is adhered with SNAIL and the bird and tree in the foreground are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Some foam tape, doubled, is adhered around the edges of the frame and Martha Stewart Crystal Coarse Glitter is sprinkled generously on the window and then the back adhered. I used a little Fast Fuse to adhere the shaker to the card. Next to it is a piece of Brushed Gold Metallic Card Stock adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My greeting is from the Project Life December Wonder Photopolymer Stamp Set from the 2014 Holiday Supplement and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler on Whisper White and punched out with the 1″ Circle Punch. A Stampin’ Dimensional holds that to the card too. I put just enough glitter in the shaker to hide the hills but when you tilt it back you get to see them! I hope that you enjoyed my little christmas shaker card for this week’s Paper Players sketch challenge. I thank you for coming by to catch up with me and I hope that you have a great Monday! 🙂
