Just Sittin' Here

Happy Columbus Day! I enjoyed an extra day off with my hubby today. We decided on some furniture purchases, selecting a chocolate-colored sectional and a 40" flat screen...still can't find the right entertainment center though, so we'll keep looking.

For today's card I got to play with my new embossed curve punch (have been looking for this sucker everywhere...it's not sold locally, but I
finally found one online). I used CPS137 for my layout. I'm trying out a new color combo, too...you like?

Stamps: On My Couch, On My Couch Additions (PTI) Paper: Kraft, Night of Navy, Cameo Coral, Aqua Mist, Bazzill Swiss Dot
Ink: Night of Navy

Accessories: EK Success embossed curve punch, corner rounder punch, dimensional

I just got the same border punch and love it! Thanks for the inspiration. I am definitely going to give this sketch a try! Super card!!

Sounds like you bought a fabulous sectional with a wow flat screen tv. You are going to enjoy lots of cozy, comfy winter evenings!

I do like this color combo and the new scallop border is fun.

How terrific that you got new furniture and a tv. We haven't any new furnishings in years. With cats, everything gets ruined so quickly there doesn't seem to be a point to have anything nice :-)

Love it and I covet your punch!

Maureen said...

Super cute card -- the pink pillow is a lovely touch! :) Sounds like a productive day!

Allison said...

Just lovely...I so want that punch! Pretty color combo too!

Steph Zerbe said...

I've been eying that punch too! Cute card.
Maybe try Ikea.com for an entertainment center.... if you like modern furniture that is. Or if you really want to spend a little more for good quality try West Elm.com

Those are my go to spots! At least get a catalog for ideas!
