Fab Friday 51

Woo hoo! It’s Friday peeps and I had a great day yesterday! Work was not too bad again, and I got a lot done! After work Andrew and I headed to the Apple Store in Manhasset because it said online that still had some iPhones in stock. We got there around 6:20 and by 7:00 I had a brand new iPhone 6 Space Gray in my hands! Woo hoo! I was looking at the 6 Plus but it’s just way too big. I would like to put it in my pocket and the Plus just won’t fit! LOL! After Apple we went to Friday’s for dinner, I know, I was just there but it’s close and the food is pretty good! I spent the rest of the evening playing with my new toy! I’m really loving it! A nice upgrade and I can’t wait until they enable the Apple Pay System next month!

As chance would have it it’s also a Fab Friday and this week we have a neat little sketch for you…

Fab Fri 51 9-12-2014

I actually made this card two weeks ago by accident. I did the wrong week for the challenge! LOL! Like I said, such a dunce sometimes! Anyway, my card today starts with a base of Very Vanilla Card Stock and I adhered a piece of Kraft Card Stock to the entire card front. The circle is another piece of Very Vanilla that I punched out with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch and then ran it through the Big Shot with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I sponged on some Crumb Cake Ink to bring out the grain and then adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My flower is from the Bloom with Hope Host Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum Card Stock and cut it out with my Paper Snips. I used my Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers to color in the back side and then adhered it to the circle with Multi-Purpose Glue. The bird is from the Choose Happiness Stamp Set and is stamped in Soft Suede and cut out with my Paper Snips too. I stamped my greeting from the And Many More Stamp Set in Soft Suede on an Essentials Wooden Element. The heart is also one and is colored in with my Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Marker. Under the circle is a piece of 7/8″ Cotton Ribbon. On top of that I stamped one of the feathers from the Four Feathers Stamp Set in Lost Lagoon on a piece of Pool Party and cut it out with the Feathers Framelits. Finally a piece of Gold Sequin Trim is tucked under the circle and completes the card. I love the eclectic mix of colors and elements and I’m also really liking the vellum flower colored in on the back with the Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers. So there is my Design Team card for the Fab Friday sketch challenge. Don’t forget to take a minute to stop by the blog and see this week’s other projects and put one of yours in the gallery so we can take a peek! I hope that you enjoyed the card and that you Friday is truly fabulous!! 🙂
