TECC44 Again

November 29th, 2008

When I was working on my snowflake card (below) for Taylor’s challenge I actually ended up cutting the red dp squares in 3 different sizes while trying to figure out exactly the size I wanted to use.  Since I had some extra squares and I liked the sketch so much I decided to create a second card.



This one is super simple using more of the Holiday Treasures dp layered onto Old Olive and a Riding Hood Red card base.  The focal image was stamped in Old Olive craft ink and heat embossed with clear powder and then punched with the SU square scallop punch.  A little faux stitching, some Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon and some green K & Co. rhinestones finish it off.  I was going for SUO (Stampin’ Up! Only), but broke down and added the rhinestones.  My apologies to the SU purists –  I hope you still love me!  *wink*

I’m a little bummed out today.  Curt has been gone on business most of the week (thankfully he was home Thursday for Thanksgiving) and he was supposed to be home again around noon or so today, but he got hung up and has to do another presentation this afternoon.  Now he’s hoping to be home sometime tonight.  Tomorrow is our 17th wedding anniversary.  Even though our anniversary is not today, we did get married the Saturday after Thanksgiving so today always holds a special place for me and I’m just missing him.  I am very thankful that he has a job, so I’m trying to focus on that.  I guess I should make an anniversary card for my rocket scientist, huh?  🙂

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you get to play with Taylor’s sketch this weekend!

    Love your card. Hope Curt makes it home for your anniversary and congratulations on 17 years. Quite an accomplishment these days. At least you are looking on the bright side of things that he has a job, so I guess it could be worse. Have a great day.

    Hope you had a nice anniversary. We got married on the 25th of November-47 years last Tuesday. I have wished a few times that we had picked a date not so close to a holiday-sometimes gets too frantic.

    Like the card you created-very pretty.

    Jami –

    The card is beautiful…I love the color combo and the use all the various DP. Out of curiousity, what size are those red squares?

    Hope Curt makes it back early – Happy Anniversary!
