Moroccan Lanterns

Greetings, friends!  I am very, very, VERY pleased to report that we once again have air conditioning.  It was miserable for days here, lemme tell ya.  It was still 80 degrees in the house when we went to bed last night, but now it's down to a very lovely 75 and I want a cupcake to celebrate.

Instead, I made a card.

Moroccan Nights was one of the very first stamp sets I wanted to get my grubby little paws on when the new catalog was released (and at least one of my paws looks grubby right now, as I managed to cover half my pinkie with Dapper Denim ink while making this) and then it sat in my collection for what seemed like forever (but was really a couple of weeks) and I'm glad it's having its maiden voyage now.  And once again there's the beautiful Moroccan DSP, which I puffy heart love and the only reason I can bear to cut into it is because I know I have 11 months left to buy more :D  Don't tell my hubs I said that.

Anyway, I used this week's Paper Players sketch:

I kept the circle because I love the new Layering Circles Framelits and they're just sitting out right next to my Big Shot because why put them away if I'm just going to use them again almost immediately?  This card will be going out in the mail tomorrow because it's already past my friend Sarah's birthday but I want to send this to her anyway because it feels like a Sarah card.  Except maybe I'll add some Wink of Stella to the lanterns because Sarah likes her bling.

See you here tomorrow, folks.  Cheers!

Having issues with my computer, but I need to be at home and give the help desk a call. Catch-22 this morning, working from home and couldn't even access the site nor number to the help desk. So taking my computer, numbers, etc. home tonight to see if I can't get them fixed. CRAZINESS. I HAVE to get the issue fixed before I go out of town.

Hope you are doing well. Nice card, BTW. I do like patterned paper with smaller, uniform patterns because you can use it for accents much more easily. Not that I'm doing that much later. Do have tha afghan finished and hope to get it in the mail this weekend. LOVE YOU!

I love that Moroccan DSP too, and it's a perfect background for your swanky card this week! Thanks for playing!
