Fab Friday Sketch 11

Hey there! It’s Saturday and I’m off to Manhattan this morning. I think I’m driving in so there will be no reading on the train today. It is bitterly cold here and quite windy. I went to dinner with Danielle, Anthony and Bill last night to Applebee’s. They have a Southwest Chopped Chicken Salad that is quite good. How are all of you doing today?

Before we get to today’s card did you see the cool little promotion that Stampin’ Up! has from now until April 30th? I have been wanting an airplane stamp for a while and wouldn’t you know it there is one in the new set! I really like the Designer Series Paper in it too. You can get a bundle of the Sent With Love Clear Mount Stamp Set, Sent with Love Designer Series Paper and a package of Calypso Coral Bakers Twine for only $25.50. That 20% off the price if you buy them separately. You can click on the flyer below to download a PDF to take a closer look.


The Best of 25 Years Stamp Set is also available. For February it’s the Best of Love with some nice Valentine images from past sets and one new one…

Now on to the post! Today’s card is for the Fab Friday Challenge. This time we have a sketch…

Fab Friday Sketch 11

It was funny that when I saw it I thought that I would use one of these little paper bags that I picked up from the craft store. The base of my card is Daffodil Delight Card Stock. Down the middle is a piece of Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper. On top of that is the little paper bag that I stamped with the Sunshine Clear Mount Single Stamp in Tangerine Tango. The sun over the “o” is a piece of Tangerine Tango that I punched out with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. I put it back in and punched it again to get the “pinked” edge. In the middle is a piece of Daffodil Delight that I punched out with the 1/2″ Circle Punch. For the banner across the bottom I flagged the ends of a piece of Tangerine Tango and stamped an image from the Madison Avenue Stamp Set in Tangerine Tango. The best part is that you can put a gift card or a little note inside the paper bag! I hope that you enjoyed my card for the Fab Friday Sketch challenge. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day! 🙂
