Hey kiddos! Friday has finally arrived, and with it comes a new As You See It challenge! And I must add, this is an extra-special challenge, because we are adding a new member to our team...the uber-creative (and lovely Paper Player teamie), Joanne James. If you've not visited her blog, The Crafty Owl, you're in for a treat...she is one crafty chick!! Give her a big welcome when you visit!
Our challenge today is a "fill in the blank"...those are always fun! This week, we want you to use your favorite die or punch:
I can't tell you how excited I was when SU came out with the Stitched Shapes dies! I use them so much, the name is wearing off the front of the plastic envelope! The circles are the ones I go to most, so I paired them with some Wrapped In Plaid and Gold Foil DSPs to make a card:
I kept my background plain but I did emboss it with a Tim Holtz Poinsettia Knit EF, then added a diecut sentiment from the retired Christmas Greetings dies; I cut out three layers and adhered them together for an extra pop:
Finally, I added some sequins from my stash for a little extra sparkle! This would be a great way to use up some DSP scraps, don't you think?
So what's your favorite die or punch? Share it with us at As You See It so we can see it too! Thanks for popping in today!
We took an impromptu trip to Longwood Gardens last night...they had a fountain show set to Broadway music, and of course it was fabulous! A little rain shower before the show kept us under the tent, but John was content to drink a beer while we listened to Polkadelphia...a polka band from Philly! Then the rain stopped and we only got our seats wet a tiny little bit, LOL! It was a fun way to spend a late summer evening! My photos are not that good but hopefully you can get a feel for the evening! It was fun to watch the change as the evening got darker and darker!
How can just water and lights be so spectacular?! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
