Happy Friday my friends! TGIF for sure! It was another extremely busy day at work yesterday but I did manage to get all the things done that I wanted to. After work I had some dinner with my parents and then came home and sat outside and went though my comments and email just enjoying the nice evening. Around 7:30 I got a text from my friend Chantal asking if I was up for a rescue mission. I said sure why not. Apparently the trains were all delayed and some cancelled so she got on a train the let her off at the station by my house. I went over and picked her up and she asked if she could see my apartment and I said of course! We came back to my house and I gave her the “grand tour”, LOL! I haven’t see Chantal in a while so we spent some much needed time catching up. I showed her some pictures of Daniel and she some of her granddaughter Chloe. I drove her home around 10:00 and played some Sam Smith for her, she hadn’t heard him! When we got to her house she said that she would be going inside and downloading his album immediately. She also said that she hasn’t had any new music in a while and that was because she hadn’t seen me! It was such a nice surprise to get to rescue her and spend some time together. Love when things like that happen!
Speaking of Daniel, my brother took this super cute picture of him the other day, I just love the cap and his amazing little smile!
After I got back from dropping off Chantal I decided that I needed to make my Pals Paper Arts card for this week’s color challenge…
I had an idea in my head as to what I wanted to do so I set out to see if I could make it happen! My card today is a bit longer than usual, it measures 6″ by 4 1/4″. The base is Crumb Caked Card Stock and so is the background that I embossed with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I decide that I wanted to make a dreamcatcher. I used my Circles Collection Framelits to cut out a piece of Coaster Board and a piece of Hello Honey. Some Linen Thread is looped around the Coaster Board randomly, I wanted it have a simple handmade look, I used the piece of Hello Honey to cover the top. My feathers are from the Four Feathers Stamp Set and are heat embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Blackberry Bliss. I also cut some out of Brushed Gold and adhered them off to the side behind the Blackberry Bliss ones. Some more Linen Thread ties them to the hoop. The greeting is from the “Vintage” Loving Thoughts Stamp Set and is also heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits. Stampin’ Dimensional pieces adhere it to the hoop. A few sequins from the Gold Sequin Trim are adhered to the Linen Thread in the hoop and a piece of Post-It Tape holds the string around the back of the card just in case the recipient wants to take it off and hang it. I just can’t stop heat embossing lately can I?! I’m loving the texture that it gives to images and greetings! So there is my late night card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge. I had fun making the card and I hope that you enjoy it! Thank you for sharing my day with me and I hope you enjoy your Friday! 🙂
