CPS #252

Spin class: Spin class this morning was another full 25 person class. I dunno if this is still the New Year's Resolution's crowd, but I think it's great. Maybe if there's enough interest and demand, the management will consider adding another class during the weekend. It'd be wonderful to have options.

Family: After spin class, I had to get the house straightened up a little and clean up the ice from the sidewalk because my uncle and aunt were bringing my cousin (visiting from California) over to my new place and meet RJ the cat. My cousin's not one to be overly expressive with his expressions (unlike dramatic me), but it looked like I got quiet approval from him. Yay. :) RJ was happy to meet new people and make new friends.

Card: Here's my take on CPS #252. I wanted to use some of the Stella and Rose paper that I bought back in the fall. I thought that the yellow paper would be a good contrast to the red cardstock. The panel that goes across the card gave me the most pause. Do I use a border punch and punch cardstock to go across there or adhere some ribbon or patterned paper? I ended up using some rhinestones to add some sparkle and dimension to the card.
Card Specs:
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Charcoal and Warm Green. Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Barn Door.
Stamps: Studio G (sentiment), Fiskars- Friendship Garden (leaf)
Paper: American Crafts- Botanique, My Mind's Eye- Stella and Rose
Punch: We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper
Die: Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 4
Clay: Sculpy Clay in Red, Premo Sculpey Clay in Cadmium Yellow Hue

Huh. Meg texted me earlier to let me know that the Federal Government has a delayed opening tomorrow. I guess we're in for some freezing rain tonight. Lovely.
