Quinn and Her Boots for Paper Players #371

Hi Everyone.  Happy Sunday.

It's the fabulous Sandy's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a Clean and Simple Theme challenge for us.

Now, the weather here this week has certainly called for warm drinks and roaring fires and a good book.... but I decided not to go with the drink theme and used one of my favorite new Stamping Bella stamps.  I had SO much fun coloring this image. I still have such a long way to go - and see so many things that I should have done differently, but I enjoyed doing it and will get better with practice :-)  The sentiment that comes with the set was perfect for the challenge, too!
Here's Quinn in her Christmas colors with her wonderful boots!

I hope you will join us and play along with Sandy's challenge.  As always, if you are looking for some inspiration, you have to look no further than the wonderful cards of our design team.

On a personal note:

Well... I have no idea what is going on in my head - but crafting still isn't on the table!  I just don't know where my mojo has gone.  I've never had a dry spell as long as this before.   I have one last challenge card to make and I NEED to go and make some Christmas cards.  So I will force myself to go down into my craft room to see if I can drum up any inspiration.  If anyone finds my mojo can they send it back priority mail :-)

Warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.

Oh, she is as cute as can be, I love your watercoloring! I agree, it takes practice and it never comes out quite the same two times in a row! But your mojo looks fine to me!

Jaydee, I couldn't wait to comment on your card! This is so "me"! I love this image! Your coloring is fabulous! She is so sassy! It doesn't look like your lost your mojo! Hope you feel inspired soon! Wishing you a lovely Thanksgiving filled with love and happiness, My Friend! XX


Jaydee, your mojo is looking just fine to me! This lovely lady looks warm and cozy for sure, and your coloring is just amazing. Such an awesome image for this challenge.

Love your quirky lady! I think she’s coloured beautifully - I have colouring envy! She suits the wonky border. Lovely work!

Joanne James

Quinn is looking gorgeous in her festive finery Jaydee - and beautifully coloured too! Sorry to hear your mojo has gone awol - you wouldn't know it with this card though!

Adorable card Jaydee, great coloring job I think and I love Bella's sweet face, those cheeks,precious! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Annie Abrahamson

Hi Jaydee! I'm with everyone ~ I think your coloring is awesome and I love that sassy image. I hear you about the mojo (even though it looks like yours in definitely intact!). Maybe it's the rapidly approaching holidays and I seem to think of 100 things to do and nothing has to do with designing a card :) I hope you and yours have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Hugs, Annie


Such a super cute image! Love your coloring. Your mojo seems just fine!Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
