Yes people… it’s FRIDAY!! I did get to leave work early yesterday, at 3:00, and I was home and napping by 3:15! I woke up around 4:30 and went to my parents to get Winston and came back home and dropped him off because I had to go and pick my friend Chantal up from the train station. We went to Friday’s for dinner and then came back to my house and caught up. I haven’t seen her in a few months and that’s way too long! We had a very nice evening and have promised to have dinner once a month from now on. I have no plans tonight so maybe it will be a movie night! What are you doing to get your weekend started?!
My post for today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge from Linda…
I got my inspiration from my comforter, I look at it all the time and for some reason I just had to make a card using the colors in it…
My card is very simple and has a sort of ombre look to it. The base is a piece of Island Indigo Card Stock and the background, a piece of Whisper White. I backed another piece of Whisper White with some Bermuda Bay to create the frame for my sentiments. They are from the Hello, Lovely Stamp Set and are stamped in Island Indigo, Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana, I cut them out with my Paper Snips and adhered them with some Stampin’ Dimensionals. Before I adhered the panel to the card I put a piece of Retro Fresh This & That Designer Washi Tape down. The ampersand is from the same set and is stamped in Coastal Cabana and cut out with my Paper Snips and also mounted with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Like I said a very simple card that pulls all of it’s colors from the comforter! Let me know atht you thought of today’s card by leaving me a comment! Thanks very much for coming by to see what I’m up to and have an awesome Friday! 🙂
