Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulously talented Nance's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a great sketch for us. I knew that I wanted to showcase some of the new SU DSP, but it took me a little while to decide on one of the sheets from the Maritime set. It's of the constellations and when I originally opened the pack of DSP, I loved it, but wasn't sure what I would do with it. I had a lightbulb moment when I went looking for a sentiment and found a Hero Arts set... Read more →


Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. It's the fabulously talented Loll's turn to host our Addicted to CAS challenge and she has a great code word for us Well, isn't that a perfect code word for us? It's been so wet and rainy here in Minnesota, that it was wonderful to be able to sit and make a card that was bright and cheerful and featured something that we don't seem to see as much of these days :-) I have the perfect sentiment for a card like this and it's a sentiment that I have used often over the years.

Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. I cannot believe that this is the 200th Paper Players challenge!

This means that, those of you playing along with us this week, will have 5 different challenges to choose from. You can combine them, or you can just do one. We do hope that you play along with us this week to help us celebrate. I... Read more →


Hi Everyone. Happy Monday. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I have a new stamp set to share with you tonight. Ray of Sunshine. It's one that I completely missed in my first run through of the catty but saw it on the second and decided I liked some of the sentiments, so would add it to my order :-) When I was looking for sketch challenges this weekend, I saw one that immediately made me think of this new set. Here's the sketch from matchthesketch It's a really cool sketch and seemed just right for a sun!... Read more →
