Happy Sunday. Apologies that this post is a little late - especially as it is my turn to host our thepaperplayers.blogspot.comPaper Players challenge this week! It's tic-tac-toe week and this board has a little something feminine and a little something masculine! So hopefully, you will join us and play along. Here's the board: I went with feminine, birthday and florals. To make my card I used the Container Garden set from The Greetery - it was really easy to stamp the elements and die-cut them with the matching dies.

Happy Monday. So, I have another card for you tonight that I made when I was playing in my craft room this weekend. I saw this great sketch across at Just Add Ink and decided I had to play along. I don't know why, but I had this image of how this card would look if I used my Katies Cuties: Gettin Cosy set from The Greetery. It's such a sweet set. I did some quick coloring and then backed it with a piece of DSP, added the twine and a sentiment and the card was done! Here's my card:... Read more →

Happy Monday. Well.... I got to play along with a couple of challenges this weekend and found some inspiration while I was leaving a comment on LeAnne's paper players card... I got lost on the way when I saw this card - on her blog. I checked out the inspiration - and had to play along... .Oh... yeah... and like LeAnne, I didn't seem to know when to stop adding greenery :-) Here's the inspiration - I went with Christmas and here is the sketch: I had this idea to using Budding Beauties Winter - from The Greetery... But then... Read more →
