Pals Paper Arts 199

Posted on

Well that was a very nice Saturday! The weather was absolutely beautiful. Nice and sunny and it was in the upper 60’s. I went for a haircut in the morning and the top was down in the car all day. After my haircut I went over to Kim’s and Heather, the munchkins and I went to the mall. We got some lunch and then wandered around for a bit. Heather was looking for a dress and found one in Express. We went back to Kim’s and then Heather and I ran to Bed, Bath & Beyond and the liquor store. We got back to the house and just relaxed and played with the kiddies. What a lovely way to spend a Saturday, with my peeps! I hope that you had good weather and an enjoyable day where you are! I’m off to Manhattan for a bit this morning and then taking my parents to the airport. My friend Kim from the city is going to come back with me and come with me to take my parents to the airport. Looks to be a fun day!

Today’s card is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts and we have a color challenge this week…

I got home around 10:00 last night and I had a few cards to make. I needed a nice quick card so I CASE’d this one from the Annual Catalog. The base of the card is So Saffron Card Stock. I used some Sticky Strip to Adhere a piece of Calypso Coral 3/4″Chevron Ribbon down the right side. I flagged the ends with my Paper Snips before I Adhered it. A piece of Crumb Cake is embossed with the Scallops Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and I rounded the corners with the 3/16″ Corner Rounder before I adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My greeting is from the Simply Celebrate Stamp Set and is stamped in Pear Pizzaz and punched out with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch. I cut out some Pear Pizzaz with the Little Leaves Sizzlit and stamped one of the images from the Flower Shop Stamp Set in Calypso Coral on Calypso Coral and punched it out with the Pansy Punch. In the middle is a piece of So Saffron that I punched out with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. I used a Mini Glue Dot to adhere it to the flower and there is a Basic Jewel Pearl in the middle. Sometimes you just need a little inspiration to speed you along! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge. I always enjoy having you stop by and see what I’ve been up to and love to hear about what you have been doing too! I hope you all have an amazing Sunday! 🙂
