Here we are…Wednesday already! So much for my promised post with a new card. Well, maybe in the next few days. This pesky studying is getting in the way of my blog work! *smile* Fortunately I have a great sketch for you from Freshly Made Sketches. This one is courtesy of none other than Lesley Croghan from Always Playing with Paper (aka, the woman who cannot possibly ever sleep for all the amazing things she does!!).
I figured it was about time to show you a Valentine’s Day card seeing that it is February! This is the card I have made for my husband this year (shhh, don’t tell him). I hope the bow doesn’t make it too girly but, after all, it is from me and I LOVE a bow! Rose Red and Basic Gray are great together and it seems like forever since I have used Rose Red. The Adorning Accents Embossing Folder hearts were my starting place for this card. I thought they worked perfectly in the sketch. I dug out one of my favorite retired sentiments from a set called Well Scripted. I created a scalloped border using the Adorning Accents Edgelit. So easy to get those perfect scallops! A bow from the Rose Red Seam Binding was all that I had left. I created a “potato masher” bow and then added a Basic Gray button.
As usual, the Freshly Made Sketches design team has made fantastic examples for you! We are welcoming Kim of Joyful Creations with Kim and Tracey of My Creative Side as our guest designers this month. What talented stampers! Hope you can join us in the challenge!
This week holds another test of sorts. Now we get into different phases of flying check rides. Our “validation” on Friday will be on procedural items. Basic checklists (getting the aircraft ready to go, inflight checks, taxi and shut down procedures), instrument procedures and flying both missed approaches and landings. Missed approaches are when you cannot land for weather, runway conditions or whatever and need to take the airplane back around for another runway or airport. This is where the three years off shows most to me and I will be studying a lot this week. If I am a bit remiss on commenting, I promise I will catch up after the check.
I hope your week is great and I very much appreciate you stopping by today! See you soon!
