Freshly Made Sketches 217

Happy Friday! Made it through another week! It rained here all day yesterday, but I will take that and 60 degrees over snow any day! I got a late start to my morning, woke up with a headache, never fun. I finally got my act together and went over to my friend Sue’s house to work on some more Etsy stuff. We took a break and had lunch at Panera, I had the Tomato Soup (my favorite) and a grilled cheese, perfect lunch for a rainy day! We stopped at the Post Office and then finished up and I headed home for some dinner with my Parents and Daniel. Daniel and I played with his colored pencils and he told me what color they were and then counted them as he put them back into the container. He’s pretty smart for a two year old! After dinner I came home and worked on some craftiness and then watched a little TV. Pretty good Friday!

My card for today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! I want to thank Amy for choosing me as her Perfect Prince for last week’s challenge! You can see the winner’s post HERE and my original post HERE! Now, here is this week’s sketch…

Freshly Made Sketches 217

I of course saw a shaker card! Shocker! LOL! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. To create the shaker I cut out a piece of Mossy Meadow with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Rectangles for the outside and the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles for the inside window. A piece of Acetate is adhered to the back and then a single layer of Foam Tape goes around to seal in the Chunky Glitter that I actually picked up from the Target Dollar Spot. A piece of Cherry Cobbler is then adhered to the back and seals in all of the sparkly goodness! At the top of the card is the Simon Says Stamp Christmas Token Craft Die that I cut out from three pieces of Solar White 80lb. I adhered them to each other and the card with Elmer’s Multi-purpose Spray Adhesive. For my greeting I stamped the & A Happy New Year from the Hero Arts Joy to the World Photopolymer Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler and then adhered that to the card with more Foam Tape. I love the dimension that you get when you adhere the die cuts together and all of the sparkly glitter in the shaker is so cool! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! I thank you for taking some time to stop by and see what I’m up to today and hope that you have an incredible Friday! πŸ™‚
