I’m always so bummed when the weekend is over. They really do fly by when you are having a good time and I definitely had that! Yesterday I got some serious crafting time in which I always love! I ran some errands and relaxed a bit. Andrew came over last night and we had Five Guys Burgers for dinner and the watched the first Hunger Games. He hasn’t see them so we are going to watch the second one sometime this week. I knew that if he enjoyed Divergent he would like the Hunger Games and I was right! LOL! We have a nice long list of movies to get through, looking forward to it! I forgot to tell you yesterday that I would have some more pictures from my little trip into Manhattan for you today. The first two are from our lunch. We went to a new fast food place called Clark’s Standard. It was very yummy indeed! Here is a picture of the vanilla milkshake that I had a and the burger and onion rings that Kim had…
Let me tell you that milk shake was so thick you needed a vacuum to get it out, but it was delicious none the less! The last two pictures are of little miss Daisy and my best furry friend Hamlet…
Daisy is a cute little Chihuahua and Hamlet is just a big furry ball of love! Doesn’t he look completely disinterested in having his picture taken?! He’s like “what do you think you are doing?!” I have one more of Kim and the four dogs but I’ll save that for later in the week.
So it’s Monday and the one good thing about that is that it’s time for this week’s Paper Players challenge. This week Jaydee has given us a sketch…
This was one of those that when I looked at sketch I knew just what I was going to do! My card base is a simple piece of Whisper White Card Stock and the background is a piece of Flower Pot Designer Series Paper. The circle in the middle is a piece of Whisper White and the frame is a piece of Blushing Bride that I cut out with the Circles Collection Framelits. All of the stamped images are from the Garden Party Stamp Set. Some are stamped on the White in Lost Lagoon and Garden Green and some more are stamped in Blushing Bride and Garden Green, two are heat embossed on Tangerine Tango with Crushed Curry Stampin’ Emboss Powder and they are all cut out with my Paper Snips. For the flowers that I cut out I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere them inside the circle. My greeting is from the same set and is also heat embossed on Lost Lagoon in Crushed Curry. Another flower is added to the greeting with a Stampin’ Dimensional and that’s my card! Even though the background is very busy I still really like it with the circle in the middle. I think that it helps brake it up somewhat. When I finished the card I realized that I only used one stamp set! That hardly ever happens! LOL! Oh, are you sick of the frames yet?! I think I have a few more to go! LOL! I really do hope that you like my card for this week’s Paper Players sketch challenge. Thank you for stopping by to share in my day! I hope that we all have a good Monday! 🙂

Thank you! I love those frames! I do use them a lot! LOL! I do really love heat embossing, it just adds so much! The DSP is a little busy but I really like it too!

What a nice summery card! I love colors!
Thank you Melanie! I’m not ready for the summer to done! 🙂
Ok now I’m hungry and I just ate dinner! Cute animals, love the pics.
Awesome card,that flower DSP is so busy yet your card tones it down with the frame and inside flowers.
LOL! Yes, the food was delicious! The Dog and cat are just cute and sweet! I find the DSP busy but for some reason I really like it! 🙂
Ooohhhh…. I want to taste those Onion Rings! They look delicious! And there is nothing like a burger to go along with them! 🙂
Oh – btw – your card share is adorable!
LOL! The onion rings and burger were good and the shale was delicious! Glad you like the card too! 🙂
Love your brightly coloured card Justin! I was wondering which stamp set co-ordinated with this DSP and I couldn’t for the life of me find it in the catalogue, so thanks for solving this for me! Great take on this week’s sketch – thanks for joining us at The Paper Players this week. P.S. that milkshake looked delicious!
Thank you Joanne! It took me a little bit to realize which set coordinated with the Flower Pot DSP too! Have a great week and the milkshake was yummy! 🙂
Great card, Justin! I never realized that stamp set matched that DSP so well! Thanks for the heads-up on that. Great use of the sketch. Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players!
Thank you Yapha! The stamp set is fun by itself but always nice when there is coordinating DSP! Enjoy your week! 🙂
Justin… why is it cats just aren’t interested in the dreary details of having their photos taken:-) I swear mine roll their eyes with that “whatever-if-you-really-must” look!
Your card is fabulous. I love all of those wonderful bright flowers with the black to ground them. The yellow on the blue is a perfect way to showcase the sentiment. love it. thanks for rocking my sketch challenge this week
Jaydee! How did you end up in my spam folder!! Sorry for my delay in finding you! People are here simply for the amusement of cats did you know that. They can;t really be bothered with much if it’s something that we want to do. They are far too independent! Hampton rolled his eyes too, I asked nicely and he finally obliged! Thanks very much! Love the sketch! Have a good week! 🙂
