Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday.
It's my turn to host the Paper Players challenge this week and I have a theme challenge for you.
I know I've said this before, but Nance does an amazing job with our badges every week and this week is no exception :-)
I needed a birthday card for my bestie, Pammie. Pammie is always made up, nails done, clothing just right - so I thought this Beautiful You set would be perfect, especially paired with the Mediterranean Moments in the background. Pammie has already received her card, so it's safe to show you all:-)
I kept to a fairly quite color scheme, with minimal coloring, so that the glamorous focal point could take center stage - just as she should.
I carried the red through to a mat layer and the sentiment. Here's a look at the outside of my card:
Here's a look at the inside - before I wrote my message:
I hope you will join us this week. As usual, if you are looking for some inspiration, you have to look no further than our amazing design team:
On a personal note:
Oh... it has been glorious here today. Sunny, low humidity, in the 80s. G L O R I O U S! The trees are in full leaf and the grasses, shrubs and plants are really starting to grow now. We have several pair of Orioles visiting the jelly feeder along with Robins, Yellowbellied Sapsucker, Downy Woodpecker, Red Headed Woodpecker, Red bellied Woodpecker, Purple Finch, Catbird and an unknown bird!
The Orioles start nagging for us to fill up the jelly feeder at around 5.30 in the morning!
The Redbellied is quite happy to make do with the orange if the jelly is running low:
I love sitting at the dinette table watching the comings and goings at the jelly feeder. It never, ever gets boring!
I spent some time in my craft room over the last couple of days making cards for Cards for Hospitalized Cards and Card Care Connection. When things are crazy strange in my life, I like to make cards for these charities as it really helps to put my mind in the right place and get things into perspective.
Consequently, I will have some cards to share with you this week - as well as some blooper wildlife shots. I'll be back tomorrow with another card. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
