Oh my… guess what?! Yup… it’s FRIDAY! Woo hoo! I have to say that this week went by fast and considering I was at work on Monday for 13 hours that’s a great thing! I will be getting crafty this weekend, I have a bunch of thank you cards to make! I think that those are my favorite cards to send out! I really should keep a bunch on hand but I like to think of the person that I am sending it to and try to make it for them. That makes sense, right?! Last night my friend Maureen stopped by for a bit and after she left I put on some Sam and spent a little time in the Stampin’ Galley! Yes, I have decided on the name! Thank you for all of your suggestions! What finally made the decision is, are you ready for really corny?! I thought, I can can cook up some cards in the Stampin’ Galley! Pretty bad huh?! LOL! It made me chuckle and I hope you got a laugh too! So, I think that these are the last of the pictures from Convention. Unless you count the few of just me that I really like, but that would be a little narcissistic of me to post those. I don’t really like many pictures of myself but my friend Amanda takes amazing pictures. These are all ones that she took except for the first one, that’s her and I!
She is a very talented photographer! You can see in these next shots exactly what I mean…
That’s Pam and I, love the black and white.
This one is of Maggie and I, it just makes me smile when I see it! Was I right? Amanda is a pretty great photographer!
I really do love being with all of the people at Convention, it is a very good time, the best part is of course seeing all of my peeps!
Now it’s off to today’s card and it’s for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch…
Oh the possibilities! I actually took one look at it and knew just what I wanted to do. I was itching to get the Kinda Eclectic set and I need to get to using it! The only thing I wasn’t sure of was what colors I wanted to use. The card begins with a base of Night of Navy Card Stock and the background is a piece of paper from the Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack. I spritzed it with some Night of Navy Ink before adhering it to the base. My three panels are all Vary Vanilla backed by Night of Navy and all of the images are from the Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set. The top and bottom are stamped with the leaves in Baked Brown Sugar. For the middle I stamped the sun in Crisp Cantaloupe. My greeting is from the Something to Say Stamp Set and is stamped in Blackberry Bliss on Vellum Card Stock. I adhered the Vellum to the sun with some Vellum Adhesive. The top and bottom panels are adhered with SNAIL and the middle with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Two butterflies, also from Kinda Eclectic, are stamped in Blackberry Bliss and punched out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch. I adhered them with Mini Glue Dots and fluffed up their wings. The card needed a little something else so I adhered some 2013-2015 In-Color Sequins in the upper right and lower left. I love the simplicity of the layout and the eclectic mix of colors! And there is my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts sketch! I hope that you enjoyed the card and the pictures. Thank you so much for coming by to see what I’m up to, I hope that you have a very enjoyable Friday! 🙂
