Happy Friday Everyone!
I came down with a cold last weekend, which I tried to ignore because I had a bunch of things on my to-do list that needed to get done. I spent most of Sunday doing a grocery run, laundry, hemming pants and baked about 100 cookies! The Man wanted to take some of my Snickerdoodle cookies to work since he'd raved about them, and the Little Ray of Sunshine had a Halloween party on Monday, so I had to make some ghost-shaped sugar cookies for the treat bags. I also ended up making some Mummie Dogs for the party. All of which pretty much wiped me out! So the last thing I felt like doing was staying up late in my craft room sneezing all over my paper! Ewww!
But I did feel a little better yesterday so I made this card for you!
One of my favorite sets from the recent There She Goes release is the cute, little FriendBot set! I have a bit of a thing for robot images and Torico really knows how to play up their cute factor!
I started this card by cutting a piece of PTI kraft cardstock to a standard 4.25"x5.5" size. Then I cut a piece of Sassafras Lass 'Apple Jack' patterned paper for the base and matted it with some black cardstock. Next, I cut a smaller strip of another piece of coordinating paper and also matted it with black cardstock, but this time I used my small scalloped decorative scissors and trimmed the edge. The bingo piece was cut using a Labels 4 nestie and lightly sponged with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. I punched the lined red paper with a corner punch and also matted it for more presence. Then I punched out a piece of graph paper from the same Sassafras Lass collection with my PTI eyelet lace border die and adhered it to the horizontal strip. Then I added the New Leaf Bakers Twine from PTI and tied it up with a button and a simple bow. Last, but not least, I colored up the two Bots with my SU reinkers, cut them out and popped them on the card with dimensionals.
If the layout looks familiar, you're absolutely right! It's this week's layout from Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge #141. Love her layouts! :)
