Freshly Made Sketches 139

Hi there! I had a lovely Friday! I had to go out and make some deliveries in the morning and then I cam back to work for an hour and then left at 1:30! I stopped by and had lunch with Heather and then came home and talked to my people downstairs. They are having a baby and I have to move. The good news is that I found an apartment very close to where I am! I will be packing and our friend Andrew will be helping! I really don’t like moving but I’m looking forward to a new adventure. I also hope to be able to set up a better craft space in the new apartment. I went to dinner last night with Bill and Anthony and we got some Red Mango Fro Yo, it’s Bill’s birthday on Sunday and he is being healthy! All in all a very good day. I even had some time when I got home to make a quick card!

That card that I made is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge from Rita…

Freshly Made Sketches #139

And yes, the card uses all new goodies! The base is Sahara Sand Card Stock and the background is a piece of Blackberry Bliss that I embossed with the Large Polka Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Those sparkly flagged pieces are the new Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. The pictures definitely don’t do it justice, it’s really sparkly with hints of pink, blue and green in it. I used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and a piece of Hello Honey to create my tag. A thin strip of the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack goes across the bottom and a piece of Natural 5/8″ Chevron Ribbon tied with a piece of White Baker’s Twine goes through the hole. The feathers and greeting are form the A Happy Hooray Stamp Set, the feathers are stamped in Tangelo Twist and the greeting in Blackberry Bliss. I used my Paper Snips to cut the feathers out and the Hexagon Punch for the greeting. The tag, feathers and greeting are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A fun card with some cool elements and that Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper is just beautiful! That’s my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. I hope that you enjoyed the card and your look at some more new products. Thank you for spending a little time with me today! Enjoy your Saturday! I’m off to mount the rest of my stamps! 🙂
