I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend so far! Today we were all up at 6am and out the door before 7:30 and in San Francisco by 8am! So much to do once we get to Haight Street, waiting in line for 2 1/2 hours. We left Ashleigh in line and headed across the street to Whole Foods for a cup of coffee and a bite to eat. Today was Record Store Day and also 4/20, San Francisco was swarming with people, so many people, thousands of people. Some for record store day, but most there to go into Golden Gate Park to celebrate 4/20, I can't remember when I have seen so many people in one place other than at a rock concert, you could get a contact high just walking down the street! Once home I had some crafty time and made 3 cards to post.
While waiting to get our coffee, my husband thought that 420 on the cupcake was the address of Whole Foods, everyone in line had a good laugh!
Inside Amoeba Records, well over 1000 people inside once the doors opened at 10:30am
Back to my cards...I made 3 cards for 3 challenges, Simon Says Stamp, Dynamic Duo's and Lawnscaping from lawn fawn. My first card is for Simon Says Stamp - Travel and/or Cityscape, you still have plenty of time to play along too! I purchased this large stamp after taking Clean & Simple Card Making 2, just fell in love with it and finally pulled it out to use. It is hard to see in the photo but the red color is heat embossed, it really gives the card a fabulous look!
Second card is for this week's Lawnscaping Challenge and my first time playing along. I have 2 of Lawn Fawn's little stamp sets so it was easy to figure out what to make. I have their Bee Mine stamp set and these little bee's are just too cute! I used their Pink Lemonade 6x6 patterned paper and limeade twine. The inspiration for this week's lawnscaping challenge is what inspires you...I was inspired by my toes, I know is sounds silly but they are lime green, my favorite color!
My third and last card is for this weeks Dynamic Duo challenge...the colors for this week are basic gray and black. I don't know what pops into your head when you see these 2 colors together but for me it was a graduation card. I was inspired by a card made by Deanna, you can see her card here. I just loved the look of the diagonal stripes and did the same on my card. Sorry for such a long post but it was a very busy day! Thank you so much for taking time to stop by and peek at my cards....hope the rest of your weekend is fabulous!
