I have to say that today was a very good day at work for me. I ended up having to do my monthly delivery today so I was gone for 2 hours. Came back, did a little work, and then was released at 3 PM. Sounds like parole… because it is. LOL! After work, Andrew came by to help me move some stuff (yes, still!). When we reached the old apartment, it was approximately 115º, a definite thing that I will not be missing about living on the second floor. We got a lot more stuff moved, had some dinner and organized some more. And now Andrew would like to have a word with you…
Hey folks! I [obviously] read Justin’s blog every day and I’m flattered to be mentioned quite often. I’m even more flattered though that you all take an interest in my life and well-being. It brought a big smile to my face to see all your birthday wishes yesterday, so thank you all so much! And don’t worry, Justin will be taking me to dinner very soon! LOL! Also, when I got to his house this afternoon, he had a birthday card for me! Surprise! Here it is in all it’s glory…
I was quite impressed with the card as I always am with Justin’s work, but I really like the 3D look of the skyline and my Clark Kent-looking hair. LOL! The card is currently hanging in my living room with the rest of my birthday cards, but we all know which ones shines the brightest, don’t we?!
So thank you all once again, I really appreciate it. Now back to our regularly scheduled programming…
Today’s a good Friday because it’s the other Friday and I’m over on the Fab Friday blog for this week’s sketch challenge…
I just so happened to get a new box of goodies yesterday and used three of them on today’s card. My card starts off with a base of Basic Black Card Stock and my background is a piece of Flashback Designer Series Paper. I embossed a strip of Crushed Curry with the Zig Zag Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. On top of that is a piece of Real Red that I punched out using the Angled Tag Topper Punch to make the tag. I thought it needed a little something more so I used the Eclectic Paper Piercing Pack to pierce around the edge. The greeting/image is from the Well Worded Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Very Vanilla and cut out with the Mustache Framelits Die. A simple, fun, retro card that’s great for when you don’t have a lot of time (moving/sorting… will it ever end?!). Make sure you head on over to the Fab Friday blog to see the rest of the Design Team projects for this week’s sketch. I would love to see what you do with the sketch, so upload your card to the gallery for us! A great big thank you from both Andrew and I. You always put a smile on our faces! Have a happy and safe 4th of July! 🙂
