Fab Friday 31

Posted on

Hello my blog peeps! How is everything going? Work was beyond irritating today. We had a presentation at one of our other offices. I had asked if there was a projector there and I was told there was, but when I got there, no projector! The day started off badly and just spiraled out of control from there. However, the day ended with some fun news. I became an uncle for the first time!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Happy birth day to Daniel Steven! Congratulations to my brother Jason and his wife Erika!!

Daniel Steven Krieger

Kind of cute, isn’t he?!

And today, wait… today’s FRIDAY!! Woo hoo! And it’s an extra good Friday because it’s Fab Friday! This week we have a sketch with a big tag on it…

Fab Fri 31 Sketch 11-13-2013

I decided that since I bought the Typeset Alphabet Bigz Dies that I should really be using them more. My card today contains red and green for all of you traditionalists and some sequins for my friend Karen. The base of my card is Gumball Green Card Stock. My background is a piece of Crumb Cake that I embossed with the Pretty Print Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Before I adhered it to the card I put a piece of Silver 1/8″ Ribbon around the bottom. My tag is cut from a piece of Real Red Card Stock. The JOY part of the greeting is cut out using the Typeset Alphabet Bigz Dies from Silver Glimmer Paper and the “to the world” is heat embossed with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder from the Joy to the World Stamp Set. Another piece of Silver Glimmer Paper goes across the bottom of the tag and 5 Silver Sequins help add to the bling! Finally, some more Silver 1/8″ Ribbon is tied through the tag. There is a little something for everyone on this card: traditional Christmas colors, some Glimmer Paper, a few sequins, a touch of heat embossing and some ribbon. Thank you very much for stopping by today to see my Design Team card for this week’s Fab Friday sketch challenge. Head on over to the blog to see what my talented Design Teammates have come up with and post your card in the gallery so you can be a Fab Fave! I hope you all enjoy your Friday as much as I know I will! ๐Ÿ™‚
