It’s the weekend again isn’t it?! LOL! When you work seven days a week the days just sort of blend into one another! I had a nice productive day at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store. My Altenew order arrived and I got it all checked in and happily sent out emails to people that their Beautiful Day Dies were finally in! There were also some new goodies in the box! You know what that means! Maryanne came up to work on some projects and when Angie came in at 6:00 I headed home. It was a hot one yesterday but I enjoyed it! As long as it doesn’t rain and I can have the top down in the car I don’t miss the AC! I still have to get it fixed though because when I can’t have the top down boy is it hot! When I got home I had a quick dinner and then came home and just relaxed. What a nice way to spend a Friday night!
I used one of the new Altenew sets to make my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…
The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I took a piece of Solar White 80lb and stamped the stamp and cancelled images from the Altenew Happy Mail Photopolymer Stamp Set in a random pattern with some Morning Frost and Evening Gray Crisp Ink for my background. Down the left side is a strip of Pale Aqua and across the bottom is a piece of Cherry Red and Ballerina Pink. On the strip of pink I stamped the XOXO from the same set. My images are also from the Happy Mail Set and are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored in with Copics. I used my Scissors to cut them out, there are no coordinating dies for some reason and let me tell you, I love to fussy cut but those stamps were rough! LOL! Some 3D Foam Squares adhere them to the card and a sprinkling of Pretty Pink Posh Orchid, Dandelion, Aquamarine and Raspberry Sequins gives the card some much needed sparkle! I love that new Altenew Happy Mail Set, it was so much fun to stamp and color in! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thanks for coming by! Have a stupendous Saturday! 🙂
