Happy Friday! It was a short, easy workday. It’s sunny and mild outdoors. All is well with my family and friends. It could not be a better day.
Stamp Simply #139, as featured on the No Time to Stamp? blog, is a sketch challenge. Jenn Buck from The Buck Stamps Here created the sketch. As simple as it is, tonight’s card took forever to put together. First, I hunted for paper, and when I could only come up with two of the three coordinating papers I needed, I had to create one. Decisions, decisions, all the while fretting that the patterned paper I had selected would be too cutesy for my serious pear. Not to worry, however. I think it came out OK.
Materials & Tools: Vanilla Cream and Chocolate cardstock; Cosmo Cricket Early Bird Mini Deck paper pad; Black, Chocolate, and Bamboo ink pads; Fruitful Delight, Noted Backgrounds, and Happy Birthday stamp sets; Chocolate grosgrain ribbon; Antiqued Copper mini brads; Prismacolor colored pencils; Gamsol odorless mineral spirits; Blending stumps; Sponge dauber.
Was your day a good one, too? I hope so. Do you have big plans for the weekend? We’re going to Roseau for a birthday party for my great niece tomorrow. Sunday, I am hoping to spend time with the family as in husband, children, and grandchildren. Of course, there are the usual chores to do and should I get time, projects to tackle. My task for this evening is straightening out my corner, which is bordering on a disaster zone.
I’ll sign off with a heart full of gratitude and a wish that your weekend is wonderful. If you are in the neighborhood, stop back and see what I’ve come up with for Simple Saturday. Take care, friends.
