Woo hoo… we made it!! It’s Friday!! I know, I get way too excited about Friday! But I loves me some Friday!! Today is also pretty awesome because it’s my Dad’s birthday! Happy Birthday Dad!! He is by far the most amazing man I have ever met. He helps out everyone and is just awesome. I’m very lucky to have the parents that I have. Let’s see… what else… oh, weather! LOL! It was overcast yesterday but didn’t really rain as much it spit all day on and off. We are supposed to get some peeks of sun today. Even Mother Nature is happy it’s Friday!
Now on to today’s post which is for the ladies over at Create with Connie and Mary. This week we have a sketch…
Hmm… I seem to think I have seen postage stamp shapes somewhere else recently… love them! I opted to turn the sketch sideways too. The base of my card is Whisper White Card Stock. I embossed a piece of Pool Party with the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Before I adhered it to the base I used some Sticky Strip to adhere the Island Indigo 3/8″ Ruffled Ribbon around the back and tied a piece of Calypso Coral 3/8″ Ruffled Ribbon on it. The stamped images are all from the Ciao, Baby! Stamp Set and are stamped in Island Indigo and Calypso Coral. I punched them out with the Petite Curly Label Punch that is in Sale-A-Bration now but will be in the new Annual Catalog too! Each of the stamped images are backed with Calypso Coral or Island Indigo that I punched out with the Curly Label Punch. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals hold them on the card. I love the Ciao, Baby! Stamps and the Petite Curly Label Punch. The fact that you can get it for free now is pretty awesome too! I hope that you enjoyed my Create with Connie and Mary sketch challenge card fort this week. Thank you for visiting and have an awesome Friday! 🙂
