So how was your Friday? Mine was pretty good. It was a little rainy during the day and quite muggy but I managed to have a very productive but not overly busy day at work. The best part of yesterday was that I was able to get tickets to go and see Sam Smith on September 19th! I guess they can be a little bit of an early birthday present to myself, the concert is just seven days after it! You know that I’m huge music fan and I get a little obsessed from time to time. I think that his album is one of the best that I have heard in years. I’m big fan of the words in songs and here are some from one called Make it to Me…
You’re the one designed for me
A distant stranger that I will complete
I know you’re out, there we’re meant to be
So keep your head up and make it to me
The album is called In the Lonely Hour, we all feel a little lonely at times, don’t we. It’s a melancholy album but I don’t feel sad when I listen to it. I think that it’s nice for someone to express things that we have all felt at one time or another. It makes us feel less lonely. The album is out Tuesday! I’m off to Manhattan in a few for the morning, just to wander for a bit!
Now on to the fun stuff! I had so much fun with the Stars Framelits that I had to play with them again! I did a funky card with lots of gold! The card starts off with a base of Tangelo Twist Card Stock. I used the Stars Framelits to partially cut the larger star with my Big Shot and the the entire one out of the middle. I cut a piece of Window Sheet out with them too and then a piece of Gold Foil Sheet. I adhered the gold one to the Window Sheet to make it “float”. A strip of Basic Black with a piece of Watercolor Wonder Designer Washi Tape across it goes along the bottom. My feathers are from the A Happy Hooray Stamp Set, they are heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Basic Black and cut out with my Paper Snips. The pictures don’t do them justice, they look really cool unperson, almost 3D! My greeting is from the Banner Banter Stamp Set and is also heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on a hexagon that I cut out with the Hexagon Hive Thinlit. To finish off the card I Sprinkled some of the Gold Sequin Trim singles across the card. I wasn’t a huge fan of Tangelo Twist but I do like it with the Black and Gold! I hope that you enjoyed my funky just for fun card for today’s post. Thank you for coming by, I really do appreciate your visits! Have a great Saturday peeps! 🙂
