How has your weekend been? Everything here is covered in white, and it's freezing. R is NOT happy about the cold weather, but he's done a good job at staying warm, indoors. lol Hulk on the other hand, has had a blast in the snow. It's his first time being in it, so he's having fun rolling around in it, and trying to eat as much as he can. He was adorable on Thursday night, jumping up and trying to bite at the snowflakes, as they hit him in the face. He's so big that you forget he's still just a puppy. lol
While R has been cooking, and watching football, I have been in my crafty space. I am excited about today's card. I recently received my Simon Says Stamp January Card Kit, and oh my goodness, are the papers gorgeous! I LOVED every single one of them. I actually made three cards with it already. Here is the first.
See what I mean about the papers?! I adore this color combo, and am going to use every bit of my card kid this month, for sure. I used some of my new SSS goodies that I got from R for Christmas on this card. I layered the two snow flake dies, and then added another silver one (that you can't see) from Pretty Pink Posh. For a bit of interest I clear embossed some polka dots on the sentiment panel, before stamping my sentiment in three different fonts. I'm a bit bummed that you can't tell in the picture, but "birthday" is stamped in a deep purple and then clear embossed as well. It's rich, and shiny, and gorgeous in real life. I'm also kinda bummed that you can't see the sparkle on the wreath under the sentiment. It's coated with a layer of Dazzling Diamonds. This card turned out exactly how I had hoped though, and I'm sure the recipient will love it as much as I do. I'm going to submit this card for the following challenges...
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes
Seize The Birthday: Birthday (optional: silver and gold, which I did not use)
Crazy 4 Challenges #266: Winter Themed Birthday Card
I'll be back soon, with my next card. I hope you have a wonderful day!
