I’m very happy to report that the weather here yesterday was quite nice, we got into the high 50’s! That feels a lot better than the low teens! After work I stopped by my parents to get Winston and see little Daniel, he’s still just as cute! I stopped home and started a card and then went over to my friends Brian and Kim’s for taco night! Heather was there too. I love taco night, it’s so much fun and the tacos are always delicious! It’s always great to see the little princesses too! I came home and finished my card and had some coffee. I drink about 6-8 cups of coffee a day and most of them after I get home! Sometimes I wish it had the desired effect and kept me up up but I think that I’m immune to it! LOL! What were you all up to?
It’s Wednesday so that means I’m over on the Paper Craft Crew blog for our sketch this week…
As soon as I saw the sketch I knew exactly what Stamp Set and Designer Series Paper I wanted to use. The base of my card is Basic Gray Card Stock and the background is a piece of Afternoon Picnic Designer Series Paper along with the large flag. The large stamped image is from the Tea Party Stamp Set and is stamped once in Pear Pizzaz and cut out with the Ovals Collection Framelits and again in Wisteria Wonder. I cut out the tea cup with my Paper Snips and adhered it to the Pear Pizzaz one with a Stampin’ Dimensional. It’s backed it with a piece of Crushed Curry cut out with the same Framelits and adhered that to the card also with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The small flag at the top is Soft Suede cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits and some Wisteria Wonder is punched out with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. In the lower right is a greeting from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set, stamped in Soft Suede and cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits. The large flower is from the Petite Petals Stamp Set, stamped in Wisteria Wonder and punched out with the Petite Petals Punch. A few Basic Jewels Pearls in the middles of all of the flowers completes the card. I do love the Tea Party Stamp Set and don’t use it enough! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. Stop by the blog and see what the rest of the team has come up with and enter your card in the gallery so we can see what you do with the sketch. Thanks so much for visiting and I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂
