Paper Craft Crew 105 & Bonus!

Ahh yes… another fun filled day here on Long Island! Work was just the way I imagined it, nuts! Last minute event planning is always my favorite! NOT! It wasn’t a bad day weather wise, overcast and a bit windy but it didn’t rain until late last night and boy did it rain! I ran out to do a few errands and guess what I saw…


A perfect little rainbow! Well, if I could crop out the power lines and the building it would be perfect! LOL! So neat though! That brightened up my evening a bit! Before I get started with today’s post, Andrew stopped by and has a quick word for you all…


Hi there JK Cards readers! I was over at Justin’s house last night and he was telling me about how he hit his knee again. Of course, he then told me how you were all concerned about him and were badgering him to get to a doctor. I gave him two choices:

1) He can continue to not go to the doctor. If he does this and ends up hurting his knee further, I told him I will visit him in the hospital with chocolates, flowers, and balloons. Right after I give him all his sentiments, I’ll look him in the eyes and say, “I told you so!” (Don’t worry, I’ll mention that you all told him as well. LOL!)

2) If by the next time I come over he hasn’t gone to the doctor, I’m gonna slip a fun little pill into a cup of his coffee, throw him over my shoulder, carry him to the car, take him to the doctor for an evaluation, and get him back home before he’ll even remember what happened!

Let Justin know in the comments which option you think is better. Have a great day everyone! 🙂

He’s the best friend anyone could ever want, isn’t he?!

I didn’t get to post Stampin’ Up!’s weekly deals yesterday so here they are…

Middle of the week, yes, it’s time for some Paper Craft Crew Design Team sketch goodness! Here is this week’s…

PCCCS105 8-13-2014

I stayed very true to the sketch and my inspiration was the cover of the annual catalog! The base of the card is Pistachio Pudding Card Stock. My background is a piece of Whisper White and I punched the bottom edge with the Confetti Stars Border Punch*. A strip of Maritime Designer Series Paper comes across from the left. The panel in the middle is a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe that I embossed with the Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder*. My two stars are cut out with the Stars Framelits. The back one is a piece of Vellum Card Stock that I bordered with a piece of Pistachio Pudding, the one in front is a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. They are both adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My greeting is from the And Many More Stamp Set and is stamped in Pistachio Pudding, I flagged the end and tucked it under the top star. Over in the upper right corner are three star sequins from the 2013-2015 In-Color Sequin Assortment. They each have a Basic Jewel Rhinestone in the middle. I love the soft colors and abundance of star goodness on the card and hope that you do too! And there you have my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Head on over to the BLOG and see what the other DT members have done for the sketch and get out your crafty tools and make one for us to see by entering it in the gallery! Thank you for coming by to see what I’ve been doing, I hope that you have a good Wednesday! Oh, you thought I forgot about the birthday card?!?! Nope, its at the end of the post, supplies and all! 🙂
