Yes, another freezing cold day! What a way to start the week… NOT! Luckily when I got to the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store my Lawn Fawn and MFT orders were delivered early so I got those checked in. Almost all of the Lawn Fawn is gone! Guess I’ll have to do a re-order on that one! I had to run to the Post Office to mail out some orders and the line was crazy long but I ended up talking to lady in front of me which made for a nice wait. When I got back to the store I worked on my card for today which was a lot of fun to make! After work I went over to Geroge’s to have dinner with Heather and him. From there Heather and I went out to see Patty and Tom for a bit. When we got back to Geroge’s we hung out for a while, watched some TV and then I came home. Today I have a lot that I want to get accomplished, I would like to start working on my cards for next month’s class and get a Newsletter out! 😀

Today I have the pleasure of sharing my card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge…
I don’t know about you but I’m all Christmas’d out at this point! LOL! Plus now is a good time to get a head start on all of those thank you and birthday cards that you will need for the new year! I used the December My Monthly Hero Kit to make a very sparkly birthday card! My base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. To create my background I used the Hero Arts Party Confetti Fancy Die to cut out a stencil from a piece of Solar White 80lb. I taped the stencil over the card front with some Washi Tape and used my Mini Ink Blending Tool to apply Grape Juice Ink. Next up I cut out a frame from a piece of Gold Glitter Card using the Hero Arts Infinity Rectangles Dies and adhered a piece of Acetate and a perimeter of 3m From Tape to the back. Some Little Things by Lucy Purple Velvet Sequins Mix is added to the card front and the frame is adhered over the top to seal in all of that sparkly goodness! My images and greeting are from the December My Monthly Hero Kit. I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them in with Copics and used the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. The greeting is cut from a piece of Gold Glitter Card and two pieces of Solar White 110lb, they are adhered to each other with Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. All of the images and greeting are then adhered to the Acetate with more 3M Foam Tape. I do love all of the sparkle from the Gold Glitter Card and Sequins! What a fun birthday this will be to send to someone! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Anything But Christmas Challenge!
