Paper Craft Crew #182

This class has been extremely hard this term, and I've been working my tushie off, just trying to keep up with the assignments. Psychology is making me crazy! lol... As with anything that is difficult, I'll just keep working at it, until I understand it... or die, and since I'm not dead... I guess I will survive!
Andrea and I chatted on Monday, and she mentioned that I hadn't been on Facebook for over 13 hours... lol...  I was stuck in la la land... working on my class stuff and other things on the side! I couldn't believe I hadn't been on for that long! Wow... that's a lifetime in FB time!

On to today's challenge

Paper Craft Crew has a sweet challenge for us this week!  I was chatting with Justin (fellow PCC DT member) while I was making this and we had a blast!!!  I love to crafty chat when I get the chance!
My card today features some fun new stuff (to me)
and some incredible staples you should have in your crafty stash!

I started today's card with the sketch in hand, and lots of ideas!
The first thing I thought of was the cute Sunny Skies Die and kraft cardstock base from MFTStamps and did it in a beautiful blue called Dolphin from Doodlebug!  Next I grabbed a piece of glitter paper and the thank you tag from Jen Hadfield.  I had leftover enamel dots from Echo Parks "Hello Winter" collection.
I used my favorite die - Fancy Frames from Craftin Desert Divas for my background layer and splattered a bit of Heidi Swapp Gold color shine on it!  You can see a tiny star poking out in blue (it's been sitting on my desk for a long time... not sure what cardstock it's from tehe!
For the last thing I used was something new to me... a bit of American Crafts Happy Place rub on pen!  I love the lines and color!  Last is my thread, which is coated, and I love to curl the ends!

Well that's it for today, until next time
