TGIS! LOL! My Friday was quite busy! I had to print out some posters at work in the morning and then do my monthly 56 mile field trip to deliver them to our other locations. I also had to stop at one of our new affiliates and take pictures of their sign, It needs to be replaced. On my way back to the office I had a little car trouble. I called my dad and he came and had it fixed in about five minutes! The man is just incredible! What did he use? A pocket knife and screwdriver. He is like MacGuyver! I stopped back at the office to take care of some last minute things and then went and got a much needed haircut. I came back home and had some dinner and Andrew stopped by for a bit. Always a welcome addition to any day! After he left I went over and saw my friend Maureen, we ran some errands and then I came home and puttered on the computer for a bit. I love when a busy day ends so nicely and today is going to be a lot of fun! I have the Unite and Excite event in Hauppauge and they were kind enough to send Donna Griffith!! Love Donna and I can’t wait to see her in my neck of the woods! It will be great to get to meet some of the other Demos from the area too! I’m looking forward to it! I’l let you all know what goes on tomorrow! 🙂
The card that I have for you today is one that was just for fun. I love those Feather Framelits as you well know and some black, white and gold is always fun. Here is what that combination resulted in! The card base is Whisper White Card Stock cut to 3 3/4″ wide for tall skinny card! I took a piece of Basic Black and used the Circles Collection Framelits to cut off just the bottom and mounted the panel to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The feathers are made with some Gold Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper and Gold Foil Sheet cut out with the Feathers Framelits. I adhered them to each other and to the panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals. For my greeting I used one of the stamps from the Endless Birthday Wishes Photopolymer Stamp Set. I heat embossed it in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Bushed Gold Metallic Card Stock and tucked it under the feathers on the right. To finish off the card I used some Gold Baker’s Twine and a few matte black and gold sequins. Black and Gold are just such elegant colors and the White just makes them pop! I hope that you enjoyed my just for fun card for today’s post. Thanks for stopping by and sharing my day with me! You guys are the BEST! Have a super Saturday everyone! 🙂
