- And then it was Friday and Friday it is!
Spring break is here in Calgary. Our oldest son didn't have to go to school today. And I tell ya.. he was and still is so excited. He was up around 6.30 am in the morning building a fort in the basement. So cute. You should see what he came up with.
Our youngest daugther Naomi was for that reason also up and going, but had to lay down once and a while on the floor, because I think it was a tiny teeny bit to early for her. Well I don't blame her.. 6.30 am is so early. I wish I could just walk around with a super soft blankie and drop on the floor if I would feel like it ;) Just like that.. no explaining to anyone.. just laying on the floor... jah.. I guess that time has gone by for me.. But I had to take a photo of her. She is just so precious. Isn't she?
Anyway.. Today I used for the first time in my Big Shot my new Framed Tulips Textured Impressions Embossing Folder die (# 121809 - $12.17) Wow, whoever came up with that name sure knows how to put it :) (smile)
I hope the pictures can show you what a great embossing die this one is. My card looks so professional (i.m.h.o.) and fun at the same time. ;) Just saying ....
As a base of the card I used the Daffodil Delight Stampin Up card stock. And yes.. I am sorry, but I had to use the Baja Breeze Card stock from SU again.. Not sure how to stop that habit. It just looks so cool. And what do you think of this image of the Nature Walk Stampin Up set? (#121997 - $25.50) What a cuty eh! It comes with 7 gorgeous sketch-like images with a sweet vintage look. I have to try that bird soon on one of my cards and the four eggs in a row and.. oh well.. I guess all of them. To finish it all off, I just had to ad one of those tiny flower brads from Stampin Up in the same yellow.. Doesn't an accent like that ad so much to a card? I am sure you agree!
The Pals Paper Arts ladies encouraged us to emboss this week for their Elements of style #86 Challenge. You should check out their site.. You will be inspired, that's for sure.
Well.. Like I said, Friday it is.. I think we are going to have pizza tonight + after the kids are all in bed we are planning on watching the movie 'Date night' with Steve Carell and Tina Fey. Have you seen that movie.. It is hillarious.. We have seen it before. But our friends who are living with us right now, haven't seen it yet.. Oh I can't wait to see it again. They are in for a treat.
Inky hugs, Pauline
