Hi Everyone. Happy Tuesday. Quick post for you tonight. I did manage to make a couple of cards this weekend. It's slow going... but enjoyable! I saw this great sketch across at Casethissketch I liked the sketch so much that I made two entirely different cards with it and will be sharing both of them with you this week. Tonight's card showcases a Technique Tuesday poppy stamp. I stamped this onto Neenah cardstock and used my Copic markers to color and add shading. I love the bold look of the poppies stamped in the corner and also love the type... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Joanne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a great sketch for us: I was initially tempted to use some DSP as the vertical element, but decided to do some stenciling instead.

I stood on the deck for about 5 minutes - trying to hide from the birds. Some of them were OK with my presence, and I wanted to share the photos that I captured of them. The hummers are one of my favorite birds. They are TINY but absolutely not fazed by anything. They are incredibly territorial and... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's a major milestone at the Paper Players this week. We are celebrating our 300th challenge and it is absolutely my pleasure to host this challenge. I still can't believe that we have been creating cards for 300 weeks. I still remember the day that Lesley invited me to become a founding member of the Paper Players. I was thrilled to accept - and am thrilled to still be part of such a talented and amazing group of ladies. So, of course, I had to choose a fitting theme for our 300th challenge. To help celebrate... Read more →
