Fab Friday 86

Another nice day off! I got some more of my stuff accomplished! Feels good to get things done! In the morning I ran Brian to Northport to drop off his truck so he could have all of the Fire Department stuff taken out of it. His new truck is finally coming in a few day so he has to get the old one ready to trade in. From there I dropped him off at home and then stopped by my parent’s to see Daniel, it’s been a while since I have seen him and he is still just as cute as ever! I’m really enjoying the new Ninja Coffee Bar, I made a cappuccino that was excellent and can’t wait to try out some more drinks! This morning I’m off to Manhattan for another day at The Ink Pad. Anna is back so it will be good to see her and I’m working with Barbara! Tonight is my friend Anthony’s birthday get together and I’m hoping that I will be home in time to go for a little while!

It’s time once again for a Fab Friday challenge! This time we have some colors…

Fab Fri 86 4-29-2016

My card base is the usual Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Hello Honey. I then trimmed a piece of Soft Sky to 4″ wide and used the Gina Marie Designs Falling Snow Background Die to cut out a piece of Crumb Cake. I tore the piece and then adhered it to the Soft Sky. That is then adhered to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. I had Googled a beach and when the tide comes in it sometimes leaves a little foam along the shore so I used my Marvy Snow Marker and my Heat Tool to add some. The starfish is from the Picture Perfect Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Soft Sky and Bermuda Bay. It’s cut out with Scissors and adhered to the card with Foam Tape. For the greeting I used the Simon Says Stamp Painted Hello Craft Die to cut out a piece of Hello Honey and Fun Foam. They are adhered to each other and the card with Multi-Matte Medium. Finally I added a healthy dose of Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen to the Starfish. I do think that the “Snow” looks like the foam and that the falling snow looks like bubbles on the sand. You’ll have to let me know if you agree! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Color Challenge! Check out the rest of the Team’s projects on the BLOG and enter your creation in the gallery! Thank you for coming by today! Have a fabulous Friday! 🙂

Hi there! I hope that you are having as good a weekend as I am! I was up bright and early again yesterday and at The Ink Pad by 7:15. We boarded the bus and got underway at 8:00am sharp. It was raining on the way down t0 Allentown but a little while after we arrived it had stopped and the sun even came out later in the day! We did raffles on the bus on the way down and I had Barbara and Jane laughing so much that their faces hurt by the time we got there! It was a fun day, I got to see some of my blog peeps which is always awesome and met a few new people too! We had lunch at the Amish Market. For dessert Barbara and I ate an entire half of a Shoo-Fly pie! It was good, not as good as my grandmother’s but pretty good! The bus ride back was more laughing and raffles. Anna was still at the store so we chatted with her for a bit. Barbara and I took a cab back uptown and stopped at D’Agostino’s before I headed back up to Kim’s. She had a party to go to so I watched a movie and then I was more than ready for bed! I did get some cool paper from The Paper Cut and a Mini MISTI! It will fit much better on my desk! I’ll be at The Ink Pad with Jane today so come on by and say hello!

I have a very quick and easy card to share with you today. The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used a new die to me from Gina Marie Designs called Wreath Die, it’s cut from Early Espresso and adhered to the card with Elmer’s Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive. My greeting is a piece of Rose Red cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Small You Craft Die and the rest is stamped in Rose Red using the Simon Says Stamp You Photopolymer Stamp Set. My fun Flower Sequins are some that Michael sent to me from Brasil. I adhered then around the wreath using Multi-Matte Medium and the card is finished! See, I told you super simple! I do love that Wreath Die, so neat and the sequins are cute! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card and that you all have a super Sunday! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
