TGIF peeps! How do I love Friday… let me count the ways! Yesterday was an average day at work. Still lots going on and not really enough time to get it all done but that’s the way that goes! It snowed here yesterday morning for a bit but then the sun came out and it wasn’t too bad of a day. Michael’s friend Sue stopped by last night to pick up the things that Michael ordered from the clearance rack and we had a nice talk and got caught up. She’s a very sweet person and I think that I can safely call her a friend. Sandy also stopped by so we could discuss recent stamping projects. I always love to get to spend time with her. She is an incredibly nice person and quite talented too! Later on Andrew stopped by, he was having computer issues and we determined that the hard drive had failed. That’s never a good thing. He is in the middle of finals at school too. I gave him my extra MacBook so that he would at least have something to use. He will call today and see about getting it replaced and if there is a way to get the info off of the old one. Fingers crossed for him please!
Oh, I forgot to post my little picture from Manhattan when I was there on Tuesday night with all of the snow swirling around in the air!
Thankfully none of it settled! 🙂
The card that I have for you today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…
I wanted to play with some more new goodies so I choose my favorite set from the upcoming Sale-A-Bration Catalog! My card base for today is Pear Pizzaz Card Stock and the background is a piece of paper from the Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper Pack**, also from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog. The funky little bird is from the A Happy Thing Stamp Set** and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black along with the greeting. I used Bermuda Bay*, Pear Pizzaz*, Crumb Cake, Smoky Slate and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers to color him in. A piece of Soft Suede backs it and some Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere it to the card. To finish the card, a piece of Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim* is adhered across the bottom of the panel with Crystal Effects. I really love that funky little bird, especially colored in with the bright colors! I hope that you enjoyed my sneak peek packed card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Thanks very much for visiting and have a fantastic Friday! 🙂
