Happy Birthday Kylie
Hello. S'up?

By the Seashore for Paper Players #203

Hi Everyone.  Happy Sunday.

It's the fabulous Nance's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a theme challenge for us.  Of course, because there is a theme... I decided to go looking for a sketch and a color challenge to help me along.  Luckily, I managed to find some :-)

Here's Nance's challenge:

I found some color inspiration across at Pals Paper Arts:

PPA210 Basic Gray Lost Lagoon Pool Party


I used the sketch from last week's match the sketch challenge.

Initially I was tempted to use Wetlands as my stamp set, but decided it was time to ink up By the Seashore again and show it a little inky love :-)

The colors from Pals Paper Arts seemed ideal for the Paper Players theme and work beautifully together.

Here's my card:


I needed a holiday type of sentiment and realized that the only one I had was a Christmas sentiment from More Merry Messages.  I took my craft scissors to my stamp and cut it in half so that I could easily put the "Happy" and "Holiday" portions of the stamp on top of each other as I thought this was a great sentiment for anyone getting ready to go on vacation :-)

We have our new guest designers joining us at the Paper Players this week providing some more fabulous inspiration for you.

On a personal note:

We continue to enjoy our time with P&J and R&R and today we spent some time visiting our wonderful shopping centers whilst our guests contributed to the local economy with some fabulous purchases:-) 

Yesterday we celebrated the 4th of July with a picnic at a local county park and then fireworks in the evening.  The city certainly put on an incredible fireworks display that continued for almost a full 30 minutes.  It certainly was a day to remember!

I'll be back with another card and some photographs on Wednesday.  In the meantime warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.

Such a lovely, calm and serene card, Jaydee. Love the colors. How brave of you to cut up your sentiment stamp! It's perfect, though!


I actually let out a small gasp of delight when I saw your card. The colors are so lovely, it's such a soothing card. :o)

I'm so tickled you're having such a delightful time with your company. :o) Hooray for good friends!


P.S. Hi Lou! :o)


Your "inky love" sure turned out great on this card, Jaydee! I love that set, it's one of my faves.

Tranquil and beautiful card! The patterned paper was the perfect choice to coordinate with your lovely seashell focal panel.

A beautiful beach-themed card Jaydee - I love the way you created your own seashell DSP! So excited to be guesting with you over at the Paper Players this quarter.

Jaydee, your card is perfect in this color palette! The collage of shells is beautiful in these shades. So excited to be working with you at PP as a GD! XX


Great use of the Chalk lines set. Love it!

What a perfect combination of elements! The stamps, colors and patterns blend together beautifully. Lovely beach card, Jaydee!
