Paper Craft Crew 84

Thank you! Thank you all so much for the lovely comments that you left yesterday! You guys are the absolute best! Andrew thanks you again for reading his lengthy post and listening to Satellite Lane’s Geeky Girl. The sales of the single are going towards recording an album, It will be available on iTunes in a few weeks too. They are well on their way! I really can’t express how much all of you mean to me, seriously, you make my day everyday! I am one very lucky guy! 🙂

An interesting little piece of news, my card that was chosen by Cindy H. for the Freshly Made Sketches 125 challenge is featured over on the Paper Crafters Library blog for their Trendy Tuesday post. You can see that post HERE!

In my excitement to tell you all about the new song I forgot to let you know about this week’s specials and a two new Photopolymer Stamp Sets. First up here are the specials:

Yesterday was absolutely beautiful here on Long Island, it got up to 60 degrees and was sunny, just perfect! We are headed back down to the teens on Thursday but it was nice to get a taste of spring. I got in my car after work, which was not my favorite place yesterday (LOL!) and put the top down and listened to Geeky Girl all the way home. Last night I relaxed, watched some YouTube videos and made a few cards. A nice way to end a wonderful day!

Today I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog with the rest of the Design Team for this week’s sketch challenge…

PCCCS084 3-12-2014

A nice simple sketch that leaves a big space for fun on the bottom half! My card starts off with a base of Raspberry Ripple Card Stock. The top part of the background is a piece of Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper with some Crisp Cantaloupe 3/8″ Stretch Trim Ribbon along the bottom edge. I stamped my greeting from the Another Great Year Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay on Very Vanilla and that takes up the bottom part of the background. The wish big is from the same set and so is the cupcake. I used the Banners Framelits Dies to cut out the wish big that I stamped in Gumball Green. The cupcake is stamped in Summer Starfruit and is cut out with my Paper Snips and backed with a piece of Raspberry Ripple that I Punched out with the 1″ Circle Punch. The three dots of Basic Gray, Summer Starfruit and Gumball Green are punched out with the Itty Bitty Bits Punch Pack. All of the elements are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Across the top of the banner are some sequins with Basic Jewel Rhinestones in the center. Some more sequins are randomly scattered around the greeting too. A fun eclectic card that would work well for anyone! I’m happy that you came but to see my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Stop by the blog and say hi by entering you card in the gallery. I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!!
