That was a busy Wednesday! Work was back to crazy, just like I like it… NOT! After work was nice though. I met Heather and we went to Chili’s for dinner. I haven’t been there since the Polar Vortex! We had the 2 for $35 dinner and margarita special. It also came with dessert and we had the peanut butter skillet cookie with vanilla ice cream and caramel drizzle! YUM! After dinner we went to Lowes to get Heather a new lock for her front door. We laughed about silly things while I installed it. It’s one of those with a keypad and the instructions aren’t very helpful but we finally got it working. I came home, had some coffee and made my card for today. A nice end to a busy day!
Speaking of my card it’s for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge and here is the sketch…
Very simple, I like that sometimes! For my card I started with a base of Smoky Slate Card Stock and my background is a piece of Blackberry Bliss that I embossed with the Lucky Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. My strip across the lower portion of the card is Smoky Slate that I punched with the Confetti Stars Border Punch. I used the Stars Framelits to cut out a piece of Silver Foil Sheet and then pierced around the edge with the Eclectic Paper-Piercing Pack. My greeting is from the Hello There Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Smoky Slate Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The Starburst Framelits are used to cut it out and it and the star are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Simple but sweet! LOL! I like the way the Silver Foil plays off of the Smoky Slate and with all of the stars goodies we have now it’s so easy to make a fun card! And that’s my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. I hope that you enjoy it! Thanks for stopping by and checking in with me, I love to see you here! Oh, by the way, I have heard from some of you that you are enjoying the new pictures. I don;t know what prompted the milk bottle, I’m just trying things out and you’ll have to let me know what you think! Have a great Thursday! 🙂
