Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Joanne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a great Clean and Simple theme for us I wasn't sure what to do with this.... but then went looking through my old stamp sets and found a perfect set from Papertrey Ink called Star Gazer. It fit beautifully with a piece of paper from the My Minds Eye paper pack called Hey, Mister! It was the perfect backdrop to my focal element.

Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. Quick post for you today. It's the totally fabulous Barb's turn to host our Addicted to CAS challenge this week and she has this as our code word: When I saw this, I realized I had some wonderful paper that came as part of the My Minds Eye - Blush paper pack and I knew it would be perfect.

I don't have that many sets that I can use..... but I looked through my stash and found an Altenew set that I had called "Vintage Teacup" and realized it would be perfect.
