Happy Thursday! Thursday already, I do love a short week. Maybe we could petition to have every Tuesday off, might as well add Monday to that too! Ahh… I believe that’s what they call wishful thinking! LOL! How are you all doing today? I’m getting happier because we are almost at Friday. It was a quiet day yesterday, definitely on the frigid side! It’s supposed to be cold here for a couple more days. I really can’t wait for the warm weather. How is the weather by you? 🙂
FYI… today is the first day that you can order form the new 2013 Spring Catalog!! I hope that all of my sneak peeks have inspired you! To celebrate the launch of the new catalog anyone that places an order with me today through Saturday for $100 or more will get $20 toward a future purchase once Sale-A-Bration starts (January 22 to March 22, 2013)! Not only will you get some great products from the new catalog now but you will also get $20 towards your Sale-A-Bration purchase. A free product from the Sale-A-Bration brochure for every $50 that you spend with $20 to get you started! Sounds good to me!
Now for today’s post that is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. This week we have a sketch from Jennifer T….
When I saw the hearts on the sketch I of course immediately thought Valentine’s Day. I looked at it a little longer and decided not to go with that although the greeting does come from a Valentine’s set! The base of my card is Sahara Sand Card Stock. I cut the bottom edge off of a piece of Raspberry Ripple with the Large Scallop Edgelit Die. The greeting is stamped in Basic Black and is form the You Are Loved Stamp Set. A strip of Basic Black is adhered across under the greeting with some 2-Way Glue. The large image is stamped in Raspberry Ripple from the Quint-essntial Flower Single Wood Mount Stamp. I used the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch to punch it out and adhered it to the card with SNAIL. The two circles are from the Circle Circus Stamp Set and are stamped in Basic Black and Sahara Sand. The black one is punched out with the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch and the sand one with the 3/4″ Circle Punch. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals hold them in place. I thought about adding some pearls or rhinestones but I really like the simplicity of the card. I’m also loving the color combination! I hope that you like this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge card. Thank you, as always for taking some time to see me today and for your comments. I appreciate it! Have a great day! 🙂
