Ahh yes my faithful friends… it’s that magical day of the week, the one that I love the most! It’s FRIDAY!! Ok, got that out of the way! LOL! I had very nice day yesterday, work was good, I snuck out a little early which of course makes it better! I played in the Stampin’ Galley for a bit but the highlight of my evening was being a guest speaker on the Pals Webinar! What an honor to get to speak to such an amazing group of talented peeps! It was everything I thought it would be and more! Mary Fish’s blog was the first blog that I followed. Just a little star struck! LOL! I’ll stop now! How are things by you? Any big plans for the weekend? I’m going to escape to Manhattan tomorrow morning to spend some quality time with my friend Kim. The weather isn’t supposed to be the best but it’s the city so what does that matter?!
Today I have a very simple card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge, here is the sketch…
I have been really having fun with using sponge daubers to apply ink to projects. I really love the blending and the look that it gives. My card begins with a base of Tangelo Twist Card Stock. Across the bottom is a piece of Champagne Glimmer Paper that I adhered with Multi-Purpose Glue. I stamped the greeting from the For All Things Stamp Set* in Chocolate Chip, using my Stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect placement! My leaf and acorn are cut from Coaster Board using the Autumn Accents Bigz L Die. I used my Sponge Daubers to apply some Chocolate Chip, Garden Green, Daffodil Delight and Tangelo Twist Ink. The leaf is adhered to the card with Fast Fuse Adhesive and the acorn with a Stampin’ Dimensional. I love the texture that you get from the ink on the Coaster Board and the sparkle along the bottom is just fun! There is my simple card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge, I hope that you enjoyed it and are inspired to try a little sponging! Thanks for stopping by and have the best Friday ever! 🙂
