Make A Wish!

This weekend is just about over. It sure flew by. I watched In Bruges, with Colin Farrell, earlier today. Yes - I'm a movie nut. It was good. The ending was pretty surprising. I'd recommend it. I may watch American Gangstar later on. I would like to get them both back in the mail tomorrow. I didn't get a chance to work on anything this weekend as I, once again, ran out of adhesive. I finally caved in and ordered the ATG-50 and 12 rolls of tape. It's expected to arrive tomorrow. Ok, on to what this post was intended for. ;)

I made this card last week for My Favorite Things' sketch challenge MFTSC66. All of the stamps used, both the image and sentiments, are from My Favorite Things' You Take The Cake set. They are were stamped using Brillance black ink and were then heat embossed. I used the Magic Color Pencil Technique once again with my Prismas, OMS, & blending stumps. I would love to try Copics, but they're just not in my budget right now. The gorgeous pattern paper, both outside and in, are from K&Company's Berry Sweet line. I finished it all off with some skittles, Primas, and Stickles as my embellishments.

I'm sitting here watching the Grammy's. Coldplay's performance rocked. They are my all-time favorite band. I've been a fan since Parachutes. They also just won for Song of the Year. Yeah! Well, I think I will bid farewell here. I hope you all have a wonderful week. Hopefully I'll have another post within the next few days. 'Til next time..

Great card Amanda. I love the colors you chose. Do you think you have enough adhesive now? Guess that`s what I should do sometime soon as I run out all the time too.
Thanks for joining in my blog candy.
