Hey y'all. Happy Saturday. I hope you are having a great weekend and that your week was Amazing!
First let me say, I'm a BAD Blogger! For 2 reasons. 1- I got this Amazing set from my friend Terry over at Going Over the Edge. (I won it during her "The Great Pumpkin" blog hop) and haven't sent her a Thank-You card with it yet. Hey Terry, I have a special card for you! Check her site out, it's Fabulous!!!! 2- I've been busy all week and went to 4 different houses on Thanksgiving and didn't get a chance to tell you all Happy Thanksgiving. I'm very Thankful for all of you. Thanks so much for all of your support and friendship.
One of my dear friends, Adrienne, had a birthday on Thanksgiving. It was another reason to be thankful. So, of course I had to make her a card. We were headed to her house for our 1st stop so I was able to take it with me, along with my Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake, Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie and Homemade Fudge. :) (I stirred them all backwards to take out the Fat and Calories. You do use that technique right?) I used this week's sketch over at Nacho Average Challenge as my inspiration. Here's what I came up with-
|Birthday Card featuring|
World Spectacular DSP and You're Amazing Stamp Set
Here's the sketch from NAC-
This card came together really quickly. Love when that happens. I actually started with the World Spectacular DSP and got my color inspiration from that. The base is Island Indigo and the banner is Daffodil Delight. I ran the banner through my Big Shot with my Chevron Embossing Folder for a little added dimension. I curled the end of my banner to give it some motion and adhered the top of the banner to my DSP with Tombow. This allowed the end to curve outward. My sentiment was stamped in I.I. and then cut out with one of my Apothecary Accents Framelets. This was adhered with Dimensionals. I added a few Rhinestones for a little extra bling and he front of my card was done.
Here's the inside-
I used the Fabulous Phrases set for the sentiment and the image is from the You're Amazing set. I colored it with my Stampin' Write Markers in Basic Gray and Island Indigo and let Tink have a little fun and my card was done.
I hope you like today's card and the fabulous ladies over at NAC like it too. I'm happy to say my friend Adrienne really liked it and the thing she liked the most was that I took the time to make it just for her. If you liked today's card or have questions about it, I hope you'll take a moment to leave me a comment below. I love hearing from you and I read them all. They really do make my day! If you'd like to +1 or Pin it, I've put those buttons on my blog for your convenience. Friends and Followers are always welcome too! :)
Thanks so much for taking time out of your busy day to sot by my little corner of the world. You are so very appreciated! Till Next Time-
Remember- Life is often more about the storms than the peace they seek to overwhelm. It's not about Waiting for the storms to pass, but Learning to Dance in the rain.
