And here we go again! I know I say it all the time but the weekend goes way too fast! I did have a very nice day yesterday with Kim. We stopped and did some shopping on the way back to Manhattan. I got some more much needed craft storage (M’s had a great sale yesterday!), now I just need to figure out where I’m going to put it! I got a parking space on the street and we had lunch at the diner. They have such great burgers, cooked just right, large portion and very reasonably priced! After lunch we went downtown and I stopped in at the Ink Pad (just to browse!), after that some coffee at Roasting Plant Coffee. I got home in record time and picked up Taylor, she surfed the internet and I crafted. Not a bad weekend at all!
Today I have my Pals Paper Arts card for their sketch challenge…
The base of my card is Primrose Petals Card Stock, I rounded the right corners on all of the pieces with the 3/16″ Corner Rounder. For the background, just a plain piece of Very Vanilla. The strips of paper are from the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack. The main image/greeting is the Hello, Hello Single Stamp and is stamped in Raspberry Ripple and backed with a piece of the same. I think the stamp looks great with some of the flowers from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. I punched some out in Summer Starfruit and Primrose Petals and adhered them with Mini Glue Dots. It needed one more thing… ahh… some Basic Jewels Pearls in the center of the flowers, that’s just what it needed! I adhered the panel to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Nice, simple but not too simple. I hope that you enjoyed my Pals Paper Arts card for the sketch challenge. I thank you, as always for stopping by and I hope that you have as best Monday you can! 🙂
