Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday.
Normally on Saturday I share with you my Paper Players challenge card. However, I don't have one ready yet! Lou and I were out on a date night - overnight - last night and we have only just gotten back. So, I shall be spending time in my stamping space tomorrow making my challenge card, and cards for the week.
I do have a project to share with you tonight. I found some photo coasters on-line and decided to use them to make seasonal inserts. I had such fun making them and am working on other occasions to create inserts for!
Tonight I am going to share with you inserts for Christmas, Valentines and Fall. I used a variety of stamp sets for these, mostly SU.
Before I show you my project though.... lots of great SU news to share with you tonight. Contact your SU demo for more details - or I would be happy to provide you with more info.

Here's the Valentine one:
For this insert I used the Confetti and French Foliage stamp sets. The hearts were punched out from the fabulous glimmer paper and placed onto Blushing Bride card stock. The sentiment is from Short and Sweet.
Well, you can see that I made four inserts - each with a different saying. The focal image is the bird on the snowball from Snow Much Fun. The sentiments are from wordsworth. Of course, I had to bring out my Dazzling Details and cover the snowball in lots of bling!
Then, for the fall ones, I pulled out my French Foliage stamp set and inked up my favorite leaf with Stampin' Write markers.
I used the Confetti stamp as the background. I them stamped the leaf 4 times on to spare card stock and cut them out. I adhered the leaf to the bases and stamped the sentiment.
The photo coasters came in a set of four. So, I made 4 inserts for these three occasions. I can't wait to try them out for others. I have the inserts stored in a little bag along with the coasters. Makes it easy to slip them in and out. I thought they were really cool. What do you think?
On a personal note:
Lou and I went to see a comedian last night - Robert Dubac. His comedic one man act is titled, "The Male Intellect: Any Oxymoron?" It was hysterical. Lou and I laughed almost non-stop for 90 minutes. The men - and the women - in the audience appreciated his sardonic, dry, very witty, observations on men's brains, women's brains... and how we each mis-understand each other. It was a great use of the $28 we paid for the tickets! We then went to have dinner at the hotel. All round it was a great date night. This morning, a relaxing start to the morning with breakfast at the nearest Caribou and then a little shopping.
The fall colors are just starting to emerge. It was a beautiful drive up - and back. I absolutely LOVE this time of year. The weather was in the 60s as a high, the air was crisp and the skies were blue and clear. Absolutely .... gorgeous!
I hope you all have a gorgeous Sunday. Fill of fun, laughter and love. Warm hugs and prayers to those who need a little lift tonight.
