HI Everyone. Happy Sunday.
It's the fabulous LeAnne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and it's color challenge week.
When I saw these colors, I could hear my mother saying to me, in a disdainful voice, "blue and green should never be seen"! However, I think it depends on the shades :-) I don't have these colors in my stash, so I had to go to the nearest match. Earlier this year I bought a geometric stamp set from The Stamp Market called Detailed Diamonds. I decided to challenge myself... I mean... how was I going to do all that positioning with one hand and two fingers.... Well, it took some time, and the placement isn't perfect, but I managed :-)
As neutrals are allowed as part of our colors, I used black for the sentiment. I pulled out an old Papertrey Ink set called Wet Paint. Once I had finished the front, I mounted it onto a Neenah Solar White card base with some fun foam.
Here's my card:
I hope you join us and play along this week. As usual, if you are looking for some inspiration, the design team have come up with some blue and green beauties, that definitely deserve to be seen :-)
On a personal note:
We saw our first doe and fawn sighting this week. They were gamboling in our woodland and having a jolly old time. I needed to sneak a photo, so quickly and quietly stepped out of the back door, but mama was having none of it - one of her little ones had already disappeared before I got this shot - taken between the deck railings :-)
Isn't she gorgeous? It's always wonderful to see the young ones make an appearance.
We also have a new sighting in the woodland - this...... it's the most difficult thing to try to take a photo off as it disappears so quickly....
OK... any guesses as to what it is???? I'm thinking that it's about time for a little bit of blog candy... so I have a mystery bag of goodies for one of you. Leave a message on this post - or send me an email - and tell me what you think it is. I'll pull a name from those of you who do participate - and you don't have to be right to be a winner. This is my way of saying thank you for sticking around whilst I was on my little break. I'll leave the blog candy open until next Friday midnight and the winner will be announced with my Paper Players post next Sunday. In the meantime, I will try to see if I can capture better photo of the mystery thing for you!
I'll be back tomorrow with another card. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
