Freshly Made Sketches 140

Oh Thursday, I’m always happy to see you because you are such good friends with Friday! It was rainy here yesterday morning but the sun did manage to peek out for a little while in the afternoon. Work was quite busy today and I have to run out to one of the other locations tomorrow so that will be a nice break. My friend Danielle is off to Miami for a bachelorette party tomorrow so I will be lonely at the office. I hope that she has a safe flight and a great time! And does some things that she shouldn’t do! LOL! 🙂

I got to relax and spend some quality crafting time at home this evening and I made my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

Freshly Made Sketches #140

Super simple sketch calls for a nice simple card! I started mine off with a base of Basic Black Card Stock. My background is a piece of Lost Lagoon that I embossed with the Alphabet Press Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The images are all from the Tap Tap Tap Stamp Set. My diagonal strip across the card is stamped in Lost Lagoon and backed with a piece of Silver Foil Sheet. The typewriter and greeting are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and cut out with my trusty Paper Snips. A few Stampin’ Dimensionals hold it to the card. As I said nice and simple. I love the Tap Tap Tap Set, it was one of my first “must haves” from the new catalog. I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Thanks very much for popping in today to see what I’m up to. May you all have a fun crafty day! 🙂
