Fashion Fun for Paper Players

Hi Everyone.  Happy Sunday.

It's the fabulous Laurie's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week - and it's CLEAN and SIMPLE week.  Laurie chose a theme for her CAS challenge and it gave me the opportunity to use some paper from a sampler pack that came from SU.  

This card was so simple to put together.  Die cut a couple of rectangles.  Adhere fun foam to them.  Adhere it to the card and stamp a sentiment!

Here's my card:

Fashion Fun (1 of 1)

I love the loose watercolor on this paper.  Of course, I also love my hemstitch dies :-)

I hope you will play along with our challenge this week.  We can't wait to see what you create.  The design team have some fabulous inspiration for you:

On a personal note:

I finally managed to do something creative this week!  I got to spend some time in my craft room and made a couple of cards.  It took me forever though!  Do you have days like that?  You know you really want to go and make cards, but your head just isn't in the game and suddenly you end up having thrown away three cards that you started?  Please tell me I am not the only one :-)

I thought I'd share a photo of some of our visitors from this week.  We get so few of these guys visit us anymore and, when they do, they are extremely skittish.  Our city mayor decided that they were people killers and had to be culled!  I am not even going to tell you what I think about THAT!  As they are so skittish, I can't photograph them from the deck, so have to do it from the safety of the kitchen door.  All I did was open the door a fraction and the click of the camera as it took the photo caused them to rush off.  We do miss seeing them as frequently as we used to.

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.
