Well, I had a nice productive day yesterday, I didn’t get all of the things on my list done but I did get a bunch of other organizing around the house stuff done. Andrew stopped by for a bit last night and helped me put up some towel bars in the bathroom and other various little loose ends. I got my Vintage New York City pictures up too! here they are…
The neat little strip of lights across the ceiling I picked up at BJ’s. They can change to all different colors and strobe and do all sorts of neat things. You can dim them too which comes in handy for watching a movie! We relaxed and talked for a bit and then he had to go and help his dad. I did manage to get a haircut yesterday too, now that my hair is short agin I need to go a lot more often, which is better than the alternative! I did get to relax for a bit last night and slept in a little but today I need to kick it into high gear! Lots to get done! I would like to not have too much to do on Monday and Tuesday I’ll pack. 🙂
The last card that I made last night after Andrew left is the one I’m posting today. It’s funny how sometimes I can spend some time with a person and then as soon as they leave I have an idea for a card. I guess it’s a reflection of how I feel at the time and I need to get it out! LOL! The card begins with a base of Pumpkin Pie Card Stock, which was actually the last thing the I choose. That seems to happen a lot lately, the base get picked last. The main panel is a piece of Whisper White, remember that stencil that I made a while back, I used that and sponged on some Daffodil Delight.I sponged another piece of Whisper White and stamped the face from the Ray of Sunshine Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black. I used my Real Red, Bermuda Bay and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Markers to color in the face and punched him out with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. A piece of Pumpkin Pie is cut out with the Starburst Framelits and backs the face before I adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the same set and is stamped in Pumpkin Pie. I thought he could use a little sparkle so I randomly placed some Basic Jewels Rhinestones on the rays. A simple card that is sure to brighten anyones day! I hope you enjoyed my happy card for today. Thank you for taking some time out of your day to come and visit! Have a great Sunday peeps! 🙂
