Happy Friday! I am so happy it's the end of the week, how about you? The other day I won a giveaway over at SCRAPBOOK TREEHOUSE. If you haven't checked out Mary Jo's blog yet, you should. She has some great layouts and posted a super cute mini the other day too. One thing I love about blogging is connecting with people from around the world. Funny thing about Mary Jo is that we live just across the state from each other :) Two people who otherwise would have never met, right?
Anyway, the giveaway was some awesome cardstock Thickers and some Studio Calico stamps. When my package arrived, Mary Jo had thrown in an extra, a little package of Prima canvas tags! Wasn't that nice? I have to say I was really excited about the Thickers, you know I just purchased my first set about a month ago so to have a different font and type was really cool. I didn't know what to expect with the Studio Calico stamps, I've heard good things about their products, but have never tried any for myself. Let me tell you, these stamps are great! Really thick, strong acrylic and the image comes out super clear. I'll try and get something made soon and post it for you :)
On to my project. Back in JULY I posted a few different ways I have to break myself out of my funk and the embellishment on this card was one of them.
I pulled the embellishment out of my scrap tray and simply added the Thickers from Mary Jo for my sentiment.
To mimic the stitching on the Thickers, I used my white gel pen and made dashes all around the black cardstock base.
Then I adhered the whole embellishment piece to the card. So easy! Thanks Mary Jo :)
Do you have anything fun going on this weekend? This is our first weekend in over a month that we don't have any plans! Yeah!!!!! I know we'll end up doing something, but it will be on our own schedule and that's my FAVORITE kind of weekend :) I hope you all have a fabulous day and an even more wonderful weekend. Thanks for coming by today and I'll see later.
