Friday during the day is becoming less of a favorite of mine. Work seems to be very busy on Friday’s, what can you do?! I did manage to sneak out and get my new iMac today! As soon as I escape though, it’s all good. I had some dinner and then Andrew came over. I started to set up the iMac and Andrew took on the rather daunting challenge of moving my blog to a hosted site. It was not fun at all! We were on the phone with GoDaddy support for at least two hours and it’s still not quite finished. He has gotten most of the posts over but there is still some work to be done. I’m hoping to have it finished by Monday! Andrew’s efforts last night deserve a big round of applause! I say it all the time but I’m lucky that he is such an awesome friend! Oh, I know what I forgot to mention, Andrew is doing a blog as a project for school. You can take a peek at it HERE! 🙂
So, I had to make a quick card last night amidst the new computer set up and blog chaos, this is what I came up with.
The card actually did start off with a base of Cherry Cobbler Card Stock today. The background is a piece of Whisper White that is cut out with a gift that I received from a friend. It’s actually a die from a set from Lawn Fawn called the Small Stitched Rectangles. I think the stitching detail around the edge is pretty neat. All of my stamped images are from the White Christmas Photopolymer Stamp Set. The trees and hill are stamped in Soft Suede, the snow in Soft Sky and the greeting in Cherry Cobbler. My car is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on Whisper White and colored in with Cherry Cobbler, Smoky Slate and Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Markers. I thought the card needed something else so I put a strip of Soft Suede under it. Andrew suggested that some white lines might be in order, so I used my uni-ball Signo Gel Pen to draw them in. You know what? He was right! And there you have another late night card from me this week. Simple, and would be pretty easy to mass produce, so I think it would make a great Christmas card. I hope you enjoyed the card and our little adventure from last night. I will keep you posted on the blog transition by sending out a post stating that it’s about to happen. Fingers crossed that everything goes well! Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a super Saturday! 🙂
