Thursday, February 13, 2014. another snowy day here on Long Island. We have gotten about 3 inches of snow so far and then it’s turning to rain and then back to snow so tomorrow morning should be fun! LOL! I did have a great time in Brooklyn last night. Heather and I went to Kimchi Grill for some Korean barbecue. It was delicious, nice and spicy! After that we headed to Starbucks for some coffee to warm up and then off to see Andrew and Satellite Lane at The Way Station. It’s a Doctor Who themed bar and the bathroom is a tardis! Their set was great as usual and I’m proud to say I’m a big fan. If you didn’t check out their YouTube channel yet, you definitely should. Click HERE to go and take a look. Pretty awesome, right?!
Today’s post is for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge provided by Debbie Carriere…
Pretty neat sketch, I do love the tag. My card base is Night of Navy Card Stock and my background is a piece of Crumb Cake stamped with the Hardwood Background Stamp in Soft Suede. Across the middle is a strip of Soft Suede that I embossed with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The tag is another piece of Night of Navy, I angled the top myself and heat embossed the greeting from the Perfect Blend Stamp Set in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The coffee cup and band are also from the same set, are stamped in Soft Suede on Whisper White and Crumb Cake and both of them are cut out with my Paper Snips. The “happy birthday” is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set, stamped in Night of Navy with the left side flagged. The three buttons are Basic Metal Buttons and are adhered with Multi-Purpose Glue. My tag and all of the pieces are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I thought I would step away from my Valentine trend and make a masculine birthday card from this sketch. I really really like the Woodgrain Background Stamp and the Perfect Blend Stamp Set is one of my favorites, too! I also haven’t used Night of Navy in a while because I tend to go for Midnight Muse. I do appreciate you stopping by to see my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. I hope you’re inspired to give this fun sketch a try! Here’s to no more snow and a great Thursday!
