And here we are at Wednesday again… work, not a lot of fun lately, but I did have a nice evening after I left work. I went over to see my friend Sandy, we had a nice dinner and got to catch up. I don’t see Sandy nearly as much as I’d like to, but we’ll have to remedy that in the future. I came home, met my friend Andrew and went to the gym. All in all, it was a nice way to spend my after work time.
It’s Wednesday, as I have mentioned, and that means it’s time for this week’s Paper Craft Crew challenge. This week we have a simple sketch for you…
The layout of the sketch gives you quite a few possibilities. I decided I needed to use one of my new stamp sets that I got during the 25% off promotion. The base of my card is Whisper White Card Stock. On the bottom half, there is a piece of paper from the Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper Pack. Above that is a piece of paper from the Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper Pack and along the bottom is a piece of Real Red that I punched with the Scallop Edge Border Punch. Across the middle is a piece of Very Vanilla 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon. My stamped image/greeting is from the Crazy, Mixed-Up Love Stamp Set and is stamped in Real Red. I used the Circles Collection Framelits to cut it out and backed it with a piece of Chocolate Chip. The hearts are cut out with the Fashionable Hearts Embosslit and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I decided the card needed a little something more along the bottom, so I cut out a piece of Real Red with the Expressions Thinlits Dies and adhered it with 2-Way Glue. I love when you can use a seasonal Designer Series Paper for something other than it was intended and the Thinlits are by far my favorite product! Thank you very much for stopping by to see my Paper Craft Crew Design Team Card for this week’s sketch challenge. Take some time and head on over to the blog to see what the other designers have done with the sketch, and enter your card in the gallery so we can see your take on it as well! Have a happy Hump Day!

Gut reaction was love at first site. Then I “Brianized” it and tried to come up with why I loved it. It reminds me of something from the vintage magazines of my youth and it just tugs at the heartstrings of my memories. Well done, Justin!

Thank you Grace! I am with you and yes, who doesn’t like chocolate?!
