MFTWSC191 You & Me

Happy Friday and Happy 3 Day Weekend to my US readers!  We have a few more days left of summer vacation for my kids - they start school on Thursday.  Fortunately, I have kids who still like school and look forward to it.  It will be good to get them back into a routine.  Today we have a surprise for them.  We had purchased summer passes to FunPlex (think Chuck E Cheese with more) and they expire this Monday.  We've already gotten our money out of them, but one of the things they haven't done is Laser Tag.  We are taking them there tonight for Laser Tag and some silly games.

Today I managed to get my weekly MFTWSC card done.  I'm really happy with the fact I've done them all so far this year!  It's good to keep on track with a goal!  I'm also thrilled with how this turned out.
I was struggling with focus today, but was so thrilled when things finally came together.  I pulled a piece of Making Memories Black Tie paper for an elegant background.  You and Me from Always & Forever are stamped in Versamark on Stardream Metallic Silver card stock and heat embossed with black.  I then cut an ampersand from silver and embossed that with silver.  Before putting the designer paper down, I ran it through my Big Shot with a Peek-a-Boo Heart die.  I then put everything together and filled in the heart outlines with a tiny rhinestone or pearl in each circle.

PTI SAF 2014 - Time After Time

The last challenge of the day was to pull a card we had made and redo it.  After flipping through my blog, I saw many I could have redone, but opted to redo my husband's Valentine's card from 2009.  I had only started blogging that year and was quite green yet in my techniques.  Below is the original card.  I opted to make it ultra CAS -- I used a white card base and rounded the corners, which is very trendy right now.  My hearts are punched with the PTI punches that coordinates with Heart Prints.  The hearts are Gelato hearts on watercolor paper.   I stamped a sentiment from the set, added a few rhinestones and a bow.

PTI SAF 2014 - Challenge #14 Passing Notes

 For the final decade challenge, we were to create a note, like those we passed in class back in the '80s.  I know I did and knew how to fold them, but I was so tired by this point!  I created one of the paper footballs using a piece of Doodlebug designer papers -- it fits so well with the 80s.  I just attached it to a little glassine envelope that is lined like notebook paper.  Inside the envelope I included a little tag using the Tag Sale #14 die.

PTI SAF 2014 -- Challenge #13 Retro Rainbows

The 80s were definitely my decade!  I opted to make another 3x4 with the cute sunglass image included in the SAF set.  I stamped it multiple times, using Hero Arts neon inks.  I added in some of the tiny & cute sentiments.

PTI SAF 2014 - Challenge #12 Rad Ad Looks

My mojo was waning by the 60s and this was so not my cup of tea.  Somehow, I think it all works.... I used lots of the dies included in the 60s kit and the sentiments.  The designer paper was also included in the kit.
