Paper Players 246

Oh what a happy Monday it is indeed! A great big thank you to all of the men and women that serve our country and make it great! And also for getting me the day off for work! LOL! I had a nice relaxing Sunday! Breakfast with the girls was fun! We had a nice chat and got all caught up! We are also not going to wait so long until the next time we do that! When I got home from breakfast I rearranged the room next to the kitchen in my apartment and it’s so much bigger now! I like playing Tetris with furniture! The rest of the day was spent crafting, doing laundry and some doing nothing too! When Taylor got home from work we ran to IKEA so I could get a rug for the new open area in the cleaned out space! Today I’m going to be crafty and get ahead for the week! 🙂

Today’s card is for this week’s Paper Players challenge from Anne Marie…

Paper Players #246

I stepped a little out of my color zone today! The inspiration is the Washi Tape and the colors in it. My card base is the usual and the entire card front is covered in a piece of Real Red. Another piece of Whisper White has some Washi Tape with a map on it that I got from Michaels. Guess what is on the map… London!! How weird is that?! Anyway, I adhered the strip of Washi to the panel and then on the top and bottom are pieces of Lost Lagoon. I heat embossed the greeting from the Simon Says Stamp Flowers on My Mind Photopolymer Stamp Set with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Some Fun Foam is adhered to the back and then the panel to the card. My tag is cut from Basic Black using the Tim Holtz Tags Collection Framelits. I adhered some more Washi to another piece of Whisper White and used the Simon Says Stamp Feathers Dies to cut three out. They are adhered to the tag and some Hemptique Black Hemp Twine is wrapped around the bottom. Another piece of Fun Foam and adhesive holds it to the card. To finish it off I adhered three Recollections Enamel Dots to the Washi across the center. I’m really liking the colors that I pulled from the Washi, I think that they are different and pretty neat! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players sketch challenge! Thanks for taking some time out from your Memorial Day festivities to stop by and see me! Have a safe and fun day! 🙂

Freshly Made Sketches 185

You know when you have one of those days, the ones that seem a lot longer than a regular day? That was my Wednesday. It was dreary and rainy for most of the day, well, drizzly. Work was a little on the crazy side. Lots of running around and I can prove that because my Apple Watch tells me that I walked 5 miles! Under normal circumstances I would say that being busy makes the day move along but that wasn’t the case. I came home, had some dinner and spoke to Andrea for a bit and then started to work on my project. I also FaceTimed with Michael for a while, that is always a nice way to end the day. Before I knew it it was 11:00 and I still had a bunch of blog stuff to do. So wait, did the day move fast or slow?! Let’s just say that it was an unusual day! Tonight I’m accompanying my friend Marissa to the LI-LGBT Network Gala. The company that I work for is a sponsor. I’ll try to get some pictures of us all dressed up, it should be lots of fun!

My card for today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. I want to thank Kim for choosing me as her King of Clean for her sketch challenge from last week! You can see the winners post HERE and my original post HERE. Now a look at this week’s sketch…

Freshly Made Sketches 185

I received a package in the mail yesterday with some more crafty goodies inside so I had to use at least one of them on today’s card! The base is the usual! For my background I heat embossed the Hardwood Background Stamp on a piece of Whisper White using some Ranger Silver Pearl Embossing Powder (the new goodie!). It’s mounted to the card with SNAIL and Fun Foam. My two flagged strips are pieces of paper from the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack. I used the Lawn Fawn Large and Small Stitched Rectangles to cut out a piece of Basic Black to serve as a frame for some Vellum. It’s adhered to the card with Foam Tape. A piece of Daffodil Delight is cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Hello Die and heat embossed with Simon Says Stamp Clear Fine Detail Embossing Powder. Some 2-Way Glue adheres it to the card. I really love that Silver Pearl Embossing Powder and I think that it looks so cool with the Hardwood Stamp on White! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thanks for stopping by an enjoy your Thursday! 🙂
