Yesterday was a good day at work! Wanna know why? I got to go on a field trip to the Apple Store! My boss’ keyboard stopped working so I went to go and swap it out for a new one. I brought the computer with me so they could run some diagnostics and make sure that it wasn’t anything hardware related. The guy that helped me was really nice, as they always are. I do love a field trip, makes the day go faster! I came home and got to see little Daniel and his devilish smile! He’s so funny, he likes loud noises which most kids don’t like. He was walking around banging a plastic spoon on everything that he could and slamming the kitchen cabinet doors shut. When I came home I retreated to the Stampin’ Galley and had a nice Skype session with my friend Eva. Before I knew it it was 10:45! Yikes! So much for getting to bed early! And no, still no Christmas cards got made but I did start on a few! Progress!
The card that I have for you today is for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge…
Hmm… do you see what I see? A little window, wonder what we are going to with that?! LOL! My card begins with a base of Kraft Card Stock. The background is a piece of Cherry Cobbler on the lower half and some Whisper White on the top. Before I adhered the background to the card I used some Sticky Strip to adhere some Gold Sequin Trim across the lower half. My shaker window is a piece of Cherry Cobbler that I heat embossed the sentiment from the Mingle All the Way Stamp Set in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. To create the window I used the Squares Collection and Circles Collection Framelits. Some of the Frosted Sequins and some gold ones are placed inside the window and a single layer of Foam Tape keeps them all contained. The snowflake is actually a Simon Says Stamp die called Melody and is cut out from some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper and adhered with some Multi-Purpose Glue. I really do love a shaker card don’t I?! They are just a little more fun than a traditional card! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. Thank you for your visit and I wish you all a terrific Thursday because we know what tomorrow is!! And there is only a week left until Christmas peeps! I’d better get moving on those cards! 🙂
