Paper Players #123 - Jaydee's Sketch




Good Morning all!


Were you able to get your Christmas shopping all done this weekend?  When I heard all about the grumblings that went on in the Omaha shopping malls, I was definitely glad that I wasn't one of those Black Friday Shoppers!  For those not in our area, not one, but TWO of the malls in Omaha were evacuated because of large fights - on one account, a metal trash can lid was tossed across the floor, and to others, sounded like guns shots.  Sure made me feel glad that I stay all snug and cozy in my jammies on Black Friday and shopped from the comfort of my couch!!!  

The rest of the weekend was spent.....eating!  We have one more Thanksgiving today, at my Mom's house with my Grandma and my Great Aunt.  It will be a quieter Thanksgiving Feast.  The only little kids will be my own.  Although, as I think about that.....it might not be so quiet.  No other kids to play with.....that might be trouble.  I joke here at home that I can set my watch by what time the boys start to wrestle.  5:25pm, daily.  It's like their internal clock goes off and the WWE mat emerges from our living room floor. UGH!  BOYS....

So.....enough of my rambling right - you wanna see something card related???




Jaydee's created a great sketch for us to work with this week.  It's SO versatile - one that needs to stay in your sketch book for future use.


I stayed pretty clean with mine this week.  It's definitely a 10 minute card (or less, really!)  I punched my mittens, flipped one over, then lined them up and stamped the knit image with versamark and heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder.

The sentiment is heat embossed with Cherry Cobbler EP.  I like how the color really makes an impact when you heat emboss it.

The side scallops are die cut and embossed with Adorning Accents Edgelits and Embossing Folders.  I love that Stampin' Up! makes it that easy for us!  Die cut. Emboss. Cool.

I hope you enjoyed today's card.  Be sure to come back later today and see what specials I'll have for tomorrow's Cyber Monday!
