Finally… it’s Friday! Yesterday was a real mess here weather wise. It started snowing at 12:30 Thursday morning and by the time I left to trek into the office we had about 8 inches. The flakes were so big that by the time you finished cleaning off the car you had to do it again! They did let us leave work at 11:45, I was the only one from my department that made it in, actually there were only about 15 people in the building yesterday. By the time I did leave work it was raining and continued to do that for most of the day. Below is a picture of what my ride to work looked like yesterday morning.
You can see how big the snowflakes are in the picture! We got another 3 inches last night, hopefully it’s done now!
Another great thing about this Friday is it’s time for Fab Friday! This week I’m happy to announce that my friend Brian King has joined the Design Team! Yeah! To start him off we have a sketch for you…
The doily was there so I had to use it but I tried to step outside the box for the rest of the card. My card base is Smoky Slate Card Stock. I created a frame from a piece of Soft Suede and Crushed Curry and adhered a piece of Pear Pizzaz Taffeta Ribbon around the bottom. Before I adhered the frame to the card I used a piece of the Afternoon Picnic Designer Series Paper and two pieces of Pear Pizzaz that I cut out with the Little Leaves Sizzlit. My flowers are from the Simple Stems Stamp Set and are stamped in Wisteria Wonder and cut out with the Secret Garden Framelits. The frame and flowers are adhered to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals and my greeting is from the Express Yourself Host(ess) Stamp Set and is stamped in Soft Suede. My Stamp-a-ma-jig assures precise placement! I really do like the mix of colors inspired by the Afternoon Picnic DSP. I needed a touch of spring after today! LOL! There you have my Design Team card for the Fab Friday challenge. Check out the blog and see what Brian and the other Design Team members have done with the sketch and show us what you have done by entering your card in the gallery. Thanks for checking and enjoy your Valentine’s Day! Oh, I almost forgot, if you scroll down to the bottom of the post there is a bonus card! A little love from me to you! 🙂
