Ahh… Saturday, your lack of work makes you a wonderful day! LOL! I had an ok day at work yesterday. I got a box of goodies from Stampin’ Up! which is always nice. I came home and mounted some stamp sets and checked some stuff on the computer. Around 6:45 I went over and met up with Brian and we waited for Heather to come and get us so we could go to dinner. We ended up at Chili’s and I have to say that the portion sizes have gotten noticeably smaller, not that it’s a bad thing but there is definitely a lot less on the plate! After dinner we stopped at Walmart to pick up a few things. I have been looking for a backpack to take with me to Manhattan when I have my little overnight stays and I found one that I think I like. Then I stopped at Starbucks on my way home and saw my friend Meghan. Got home, let Winston out and thought about doing some stuff but changed my mind and decided to relax for a bit instead. All in all a pretty good day!
I just thought I would mention the Paper Pumpkin promotion that Stampin’ Up! has going on right now. If you sign up by February 10th you will get a free set on 2012-2014 In-Color Markers. You can sign up by clicking HERE. You will definitely not be disappointed with the February and March Kits, we got a preview at Leadership and they are great, I have actually ordered two of each! 🙂
Now on to today’s card which is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts. This week Nicole has given us an interesting sketch…
My card begins with a base of Gumball Green Card Stock. The first panel is a piece of Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper backed with some Island Indigo. The strip across the bottom is also from the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper Pack and is backed with a piece of Smoky Slate. I used some Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it to the base and used the Angled Tag Topper Punch to make my tag. The greeting is from the Love You to the Moon Stamp Set and is stamped in Island Indigo. A piece of Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon is tied with a piece of White Bakers Twine on the tag. A few random Basic Jewels Rhinestones scattered across the Moon finish the card. I was trying to think of a way to use the stamp and I think that a tag is perfect! But then again, I’m a little obsessed with tags lately! Thank you so much for stopping by to see my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge. I hope you enjoyed the card and that you have a great Saturday! 🙂
