Wow! It’s Wednesday already! Not too bad and I just remembered that Thanksgiving is next week! Yes, I have been in my own little world lately! Where has this year gone?! It was very cold here today, in the 30’s! It always happens too fast don’t you think? I was in a t-shirt last week, today a sweater. I am so not a fan of the winter, but what can you do? Of course since it got cold Taylor thought that it was the perfect time to put her new car stereo in at 7:30 last night. So not only cold but pretty dark too! I did get it finished and she was a happy little camper. The rest of my evening was spent listening to music and thinking way too much. A way to pass the time I guess! LOL! Thank you again for your wonderful comments! I could say it every day and it still wouldn’t be enough! 🙂
Wednesday, well that means that I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for this week’s sketch challenge…
For some unknown reason as soon as I saw the sketch I thought of an image and had to go digging to find it! The card base for today is Cherry Cobbler Card Stock. I used a piece of Brushed Gold Card Stock that I embossed with the Alphabet Press Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the background. Next up is a piece of the Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper backed with a piece of Basic Black. A piece of Silver Foil Sheet punched out with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch goes in the upper left and some Basic Black Baker’s Twine is wrapped around three times and tied in a bow off to the side. I adhered the background to the base with some SNAIL. The image is from the “Vintage” All Aboard Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. My greeting is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Cherry Cobbler. I backed it with some Cherry Cobbler and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love that image of the train and it works so well for a Christmas card! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Head on over to the blog to see what the other designers have for your inspiration and enter your card in the gallery for us to see! Thank you all so much for spending a little time with me today! I wish you all a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂
