The Golden “M”

This is my second monogramed card I’ve made so far… you can see the first one here, only difference with this one… is that this one is for me!  LoL… I make cards as I need them and sometimes things happen that prevent me from making a personalized card on the spot.  So having a set of monogramed cards will help me during those times.

CAS-ology Week 54 - Gold

The card was also inspired by the CAS-ology Cue Card challenge and their only suggestion was “gold”.  So, I broke out with my gold embossing powder and champagne glimmer paper which is more gold than anything else.

For news on my side of the world is at a stalemate.  The weather has been too hot to handle to be outside for long periods of time.  I call it lung hot weather.  The warmth of the air actually makes one feel like your lungs are sweating on the inside with each breath.  LoL.

I tend to stay indoors and running outside is for truly dedicated runners who think 100+ degrees is all a mind set.  I’d rather stay inside a cool room and read, make cards, or watch movies.

I did venture out on my day off today, and I lasted about 1.5 hours in the shade.  I was brave enough to walk to the Pizza Hut that is inside of a trailer (kind of like a semi truck hauler) and sat on the patio outside the watering hole called Pete’s.

There is even a Burger King on base, but since the only hamburgers I eat are from Five Guys or In-n-Out, I’m afraid to try them here… LoL.

Celebrate a New Year with Stampin’ Up!

I have always heard that we (women) should always have in our closets a little black dress for a night out.  Well, what about for men?  Perhaps they should have a bow tie ready for wearing instead of a tie.

I love love love our glimmer paper.  The pain is a heck of a whole lot less than actual glitter… LoL.  The inspiration for these glimmery bow ties came from {MOJO} Monday 272 sketch design by Carole Burrage.

To make the bow ties I used the Petite Pennants Builder to punch out some Champagne Glimmer Paper.  After I glued them together, I used the 1/2 circle punch to punch out some Silver Glimmer Paper to use as buttons in the middle of the two pennants cut out.  I added a strand of 3/8″ Taffetta Ribbon to add a touch of color to my card.
