Pals Paper Arts 269

Oh yes peeps… it’s FRIDAY!! I headed straight over to Scrap-A-Latte after work to finish cutting for class and set up. The drive over was lovely in the convertible! There were 15 people in class last night and like I said, the cards were complicated so the last one finished around 10:00. Not bad, three hours for four cards that had a lot of coloring! I got home around 10:30 and made a quick card for today’s post.

Oh, and just because you know how I love Sam, his new single for the James Bond movie Spectre is out today! You can listen here!

Sam Smith - Writing's on the Wall

The quick card is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge…

PPA 269

I have been in a Lawn Fawn frame of mind lately so I dug out an oldie but goodie! The card base is Neenah Solar White 100lb Card Stock. The balloon, clouds and greeting are from the Lawn Fawn Blue Skies Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped part of the greeting in Memento Tuxedo Black on the card base. A piece of Soft Sky is cut out with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Circles and adhered to the card with SNAIL. The clouds are heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder on Vellum, cut out with the coordinating dies and adhered to the circle with 2-Way Glue. I colored in the balloon with Copics, also cut out with the dies, and adhered that with some Foam Tape. For the word BLUE I used the Lawn Fawn Owen’s ABC’s Photopolymer Stamp Set, stamped in Pacific Point, cut out with the coordinating dies and adhered to the card with some more Foam Tape. I think that this would make a great little pick me up card to send to someone that might be going through a rough patch, it would brighten my day! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge! Don’t forget that I will be posting the class cards tomorrow! Thanks so much for coming by and I wish you all a fantastic Friday! 🙂

    I am anxious to see what you did in class so I’m looking forward to tomorrow. Your coloring on this card is fabulous!

    The hubs leaves tomorrow for 10 days to do some car shows in other states and also attend a friend’s Mother’s funeral. She was 96 and just the sweetest lady you would ever want to miss. When he returns I’ll be leaving to do the Cure for Breast cancer walk in Hartford, CT. I know that will be a very busy but wonderful week with the highlight being a day in Manhattan to meet one very special, special person. I am so excited. Have yourself a Fabulous Friday. Luv ya, XO 🙂
