I hope you had a lovely weak end!!
We had one of those weekends where we did nothing in particular and yet it went by in a flash. Know what I mean? What do we have to show for it? Some groceries, some clean undies, that's about it. We are Mr. and Mrs. Sloth, apparently.
In between the weight of all those chores, I had a play with a NBUS PTI Text Block Friends Die. I love these dies and I think I have most of them somewhere on Mt. NBUS. I wanted to use my new die to join in the birthday celebration happening at Addicted to Stamps and More. Congratulations to Kylie and her delightful and talented band of merry card artists for their 100th Challenge and 2nd birthday!! May you have many, many more! Thank you for all you do to inspire and challenge us!!
Here is my card:
I wanted to use that Sizzix embossing folder so that I could cut the embossed paper in half and apply the halves to the card base which-way-up. That way half of the card has arrows pointing up to metaflorically signify the "good times" and the other half has arrows pointing down to signify the "bad times." Through which true friends will follow you and love you. Deep.
I added the layers of narrow ribbon snippets to cover up the incision, and punctuated my text with SU candy dots. Now that I see the card on the screen, however, I have to say I'm finding the ribbons very distracting to the focus pocus of the card. It's just taped on the back at this point, so it's not too late to remove all but one. It can be very evolutional to see your card up on the big screen.
Here is the ATSM photo inspiration:
- Simon Says Stamp Monday's ever-popular challenge of "Anything Goes!"
- Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge of "You Gotta Have Friends." True that.
- Pixie's Snippets Playground, where the only brief is that you use up some of your snippets on your card and you like joining others for a romp around the playground like you did when you were a girl! I haven't been using many snippets lately, but today I remediated that big time!
Please make sure you click on the challenge links for all the details on how to join in and to find the sponsor and prize information!
I've have another card using this die that I'm fiddling with, so I might be back tomorrow with it ...
Thank you for joining, ladies, and welcome to the Playhouse!
