Gray Skies

This card was so appropriate for stamp class today since it poured rain almost all day long. The banner punch is perfect for making the sun and it is FREE right now from the Sale-a-Bration brochure with any qualifying order of $50 or more. The Decorative Dots Embossing Folder and the sentiment inside the card are also FREE products being offered from Sale-a-Bration. The clouds are cut using one of the word bubble framelits which can be found in the Occasions mini catalog.

Stamps: Banner Greetings, See Ya' Later

Ink: Crushed Curry

Paper: Smoky Slate, Crushed Curry, White, Silver Glimmer, Regals DSP Stack

Misc: Banner Punch, 1-3/4" Circle Punch, Dimensionals, Candy Dots, Chevron Ribbon, Decorative Dots Folder, White Bakers Twine, Word Bubble Framelits

Tips: Punch 8 banners using the banner punch out of the middle of the Crushed Curry mat. Since it will be covered over it's a way to save paper. Attach the punched banners to the top, bottom, and two sides on the back of the punched circle first and then fill in with the remaining four pieces. This makes it easier to space them correctly. Use mini glue dots to attach the ribbon, sliver glimmer paper and especially the stamped banner sentiment on top of the glimmer paper.


My grandson, Alex, had his last basketball game of the season tonight. He plays on the Titusville High School JV team. It was a great game and especially since they won. Woo hoo!  We were sitting up on the top bleacher and about half way through the game several of the high school kids came and sat in the section in front of us. I wish I had a photograph but let me see if I can paint a picture for you …. One boy was dressed in a green skin suit from head to toe. There was not one part of his body that you could see. Completely green. Another boy was in a blue skin suit however he did not have his head covered. One boy wore a wolf mask, another a horse head. One boy had on Mickey Mouse ears, another wore a red, white, and blue helmet. And there were several other kids sitting with the group. I'm sure it was all done to attract attention which it most certainly did as they cheered the team on. It was all in good fun and quite entertaining. During half time there was an 8 minute "game" between two youth basketball teams. They looked to be about 6-9 year olds. These high school kids cheered loudly for these young players encouraging them so. All in all, a great night for basketball.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.
