Happy Friday to all,
It’s been one crazy week again. The weather here in Boston has been very hot and humid which doesn’t sit well with me. I’m done with summer and can’t wait for autumn to arrive.
On a personal note, today is MISS DEMI’S 1ST BIRTHDAY (I’ll post more later). Can you all believe it??? This time last year, we were on baby watch and just around noontime, July 11, 2013, Demi was born. And guess what I’m doing today, July 11, 2014. I’m on baby watch AGAIN. My son and his gal are in labor and delivery in San Antonio, Texas and little baby “DOMENIC JACK” will arrive sometime today. What are the chances of having 2 new grandbabies born on the same day? (I’ll post more when “DOMENIC JACK” makes his entrance).
Now for some cards. This week I chose to post some BLACK AND WHITE cards. Black and white cards are so easy as there’s not much thought about choosing colors and they are always so handsome.
This next card was also easy to make using one of my favorite dies. The silver threads around the card were made using a very old corner punch which makes 2 notches and allows you to wind the thread around creating a nice and easy border. A little bling and a now from the same thread complete this card.
This card was a bit more involved but also easy to make. I printed off some music paper from my computer for the top section. Black and white strips with one rounded end make up the piano keys. I finished off with a strip of black and white ribbon and a sentiment.
Another simple card using another favorite die. Black and gray papers were embossed and cut to size and layered. A simple tie ribbon and a “Hello” stamp with a few pearls are all this card needed. Again, this “Hello” stamp is so very old!!!
So you all may have seen this card on Pinterest. It’s such a cute idea and I’ve seen lots of different versions so here’s mine. I embossed the white background (how perfect is this embossing folder) and used a punch for the two hearts. A bit of embellishing and you’re done. The silver sentiment and thin straight line border are Class A Peel stickers.So there you have it for this week. I’ll be back soon with baby news and birthday pics. Wait until you see MISS DEMI’S outfit!
