Create with Connie and Mary 235

Posted on

Woo hoo! It’s Friday! I mentioned yesterday that I was going into the city after work and that it would be a long day and it was. I managed to get to the city by 6:15 and go to my appointments and be home by 11:15, as a bonus I stayed awake on the train. It’s a balmy 26 degrees here this morning and that is way too cold for me! We are supposed to have a little bit of a cold spell for a while but hopefully it won’t last long! What are all of you up to for the weekend? I’m out to dinner with my friends Anthony and Danielle tonight then off to Manhattan tomorrow morning again. We have a little Control Freaks Blog hop coming up tomorrow evening too! ๐Ÿ™‚

My post today is for this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Challenge. First I want to thank the lovely ladies for choosing me as one for the top three picks for last week’s challenge. You can see my original post here and the Create with Connie and Mary post here. Now on to this week. We have a sweet little sketch to interpret…

CCMC 235

The base for my card starts off with a piece of Tangerine Tango Card Stock with a piece Whisper White on top. I used a piece of Floral District Designer Series Paper in the middle for the background. Before I adhered the panel to the base I used some Sticky Strip to hold a piece of Lucky Limeade 3/8″ Ruffled Ribbon vertically on the right side. The panel in the middle is stamped with an image from the Everything Eleanor Stamp Set in Lucky Limeade. The main image is from the Patterned Occasions Stamp Set** and is stamped in Tangerine Tango. I used the 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle Punch to punch it out and adhered it to the panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The little coordinating flowers are from the Itty Bitty Bits Stamp Set and are also stamped in Tangerine Tango. I punched them out with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and some Stampin’ Dimensional pieces hold them in place. Finally, some Lucky Limeade Bakers Twine is used to hold on one of the buttons from the Sycamore Street Ribbon and Button Pack**. I like the way the Floral District DSP coordinates with the stamped images. I hope that you like my Create with Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge card for this week. Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a fun Friday!

  8. I love the colors of the card! It is almost my birthday and I am a new demonstrator so I am trying to figure out what I want to order. Do you have any recommendations? At this point I still have really nothing as far as punches go.

  9. Great card Justin. Love the mixture of flowers and swirly’s and the great coordination of products. The train ride sounds like fun. I’ve never been on a train. So sorry to hear about you being done with winter…..I love winter as we are avid snowmobilers! Thanks for playing Create with Connie & Mary!

    • Thank you Debbie! I used to like the train and then I worked in Manhattan and had to take it ever day so the allure of it is gone! I have never been snowmobile riding! Maybe we should switch! LOL! Have a great week! ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. How nice to be able to “pop” into New York whenever you want! I’ve never visited, well except at the airport! One day.. Super cute, clean and crisp card…in fact, it makes me want a cup of tea! Thanks for playing along with the sketch challenge this week on Create with Connie and Mary!

    • Yes, Connie it is nice to be able to go to Manhattan on a whim! I love the city. If you ever do come you will have to let me know! Thanks, glad you like the card! Have a great week! ๐Ÿ™‚
