Hi Everyone. Happy Tuesday. I have a card and some photos to share with you tonight - and it's all about things in water :-) I saw this challenge across at a very cool challenge site- the Library Challenge. Books are a huge part of my life and I am an avid reader. I have been all my life. Whether it's poetry, novels, biographies or non-fiction.... I've pretty much covered everything - except Stephen King. Once... and that was enough of that :-) I can't remember the first time I read Hans Christian Andersen! So, when I saw this challenge,...

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Claire's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a sketch for us: As usual, sketches with lots of layers cause me problems :-) After some thought, I realized I could go with a monochromatic color scheme for the layers so that it would feel somewhat clean and simple. I began with some old SU DSP and that was perfect for the base. I die-cut the stitched rectangle tag and was ready to start stamping the elements. I recently purchased this Hero Arts set called Seas the Day. It's... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. It's the fabulous Nance's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week - and it's a clean and simple challenge.

I die-cut the front panel, backed it with acetate and added some wonderful gold and silver stars. What a great way to celebrate a big birthday! Here's a closeup of the negative space filled with silver and gold stars: The... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. It's my pleasure to host our Addicted to CAS challenge this week and this is my code word: Summertime invokes so many memories, especially after the long winters of Yorkshire, England, where I grew up. It was a time of sunshine and heat so strong that it melted the tarmac on the road surface. Memories of long days and short nights. A sense of freedom when the school gates closed and wouldn't reopen for 8 weeks. When the days were warm enough that Pammie's Dad brought out the inflatable paddling pool and we would splash around,... Read more →

Hi Everyone Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Joanne's turn to host our 401st challenge at the Paper Players and she has a bright and fun color challenge for us: I must confess, I don't have any of these new SU colors, so I had to match as closely as I could using Comic markers. :-) These colors did scream FLORAL to me and you know that I can't resist coloring flowers. The issue was..... what flowers to color? In the end, I decided on the Power Poppy Orchid Rocks Power Poppy was on of the sponsors of our 400th challenge... Read more →
