As always the weekend just flew by. It was a good weekend though. My daughter was here with me all weekend and I got some projects finished. Lots of running around too! Busy but good. How about you? Did you do anything crafty this weekend? I’m hoping this week goes nice and smoothly, we’ll see! Before I get to today’s post I wanted to thank Dawn for choosing my card in the last Pals Paper Arts challenge! In some more cool news my Especially for You card for the Control Freaks April Blog Tour is a Clean and Simple Favorite over on SplitCoast Stampers!!
Today’s post – Pals Paper Arts 157 a sketch from Margaret Moody…
I did a card with a frame last week and I really liked the way it turned out so I decided to incorporate another one in today’s card. The base of my card is Real Red and the background and all of the paper is from the Sent with Love Designer Series Paper Pack. The frame is created using the Ovals Collection Framelits Dies and is also used to cut out the background which is embossed with the Cloudy Day Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I stamped the plane, from the Sent with Lover Stamp Set, in Versa-Mark and heat embossed it using Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Some fussy cutting and Stampin’ Dimensionals later and the frame is done. The greeting is from the same set and finishes off the card. I hope that you enjoyed my Pals Paper Arts Card for the sketch challenge. Thank you for spending some quality time with me today. I hope your Monday is painless!

Woo hoo! The color renovation has been announced! I’m so happy that they have kept four of the five 2011-2013 In-Colors! I’m a little sad to see that Lucky Limeade didn’t make the cut but we also got some former In-Colors back too! Bermuda Bay, Soft Sky, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzaz and Blushing Bride along with a new color Smokey Shadow. They have also moved some colors to different families and of course they are retiring some colors. Say so long to Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Bravo Burgundy, Not Quite Navy, More Mustard and River Rock. Change is a good thing!
