Mondays still aren’t my favorite day of the week. And to make it a true Monday, it was absolutely freezing here yesterday. As an added bonus, we’re supposed to have a Noreaster today with high winds and heavy rain. That will make for a fun commute to work this morning. Heather told me that my headlight was out on Thursday and I finally remembered to change it last night, in the freezing cold. Sometimes I am not the smartest person in the world, but I guess it was better than waiting for today’s rain. Luckily, Andrew came by and got to stand outside and freeze with me. The rest of the evening was pretty uneventful. How was your Monday?
Before we get to today’s post here are the Weekly Deals from Stampin’ Up!
My little bit of craftiness last night yielded today’s card which is for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge…
The only thing that I knew when I started the card was I that I wanted to use the circular wooden frame. Today’s card base is Crumb Cake Card Stock and for my panel on the left I embossed a piece of Soft Suede with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. For the little scene I used the White Christmas Photopolymer Stamp Set. The trees are stamped in Soft Suede and the bird and snowman in Memento Tuxedo Black. I used the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers to color in the snowman’s scarf and hat as well as the bird. The panel is a piece of Cherry Cobbler with the greeting from the “Vintage” Contempo Christmas Stamp Set heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I used the Circles Collection Framelits to cut out the hole in the Cherry Cobbler and also a piece of Gold Foil Sheet which I backed it with. The panel is mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Now, for the circular wooden frame which is from the Dear Heart Photopolymer Stamp Set. It is stamped in Soft Suede on Crumb Cake and after a little fiddling I figured out that you can punch it out with the 2″ Circle Punch and then use one of the Circles Collection Framelits to cut out the middle! I really do like the way the little scene is framed. See what I did there? LOL! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope your weather is a lot better than ours. Have a great day! 🙂
