Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. It's the fabulously talented Nance's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a really versatile sketch for us. I knew that I wanted to use some of my new English Garden DSP and create a feminine card. I really do like the colors in this DSP pack and am proving to myself that I can make these larger patterns work on a card. :-) I used some Silver Glimmer Paper, which I colored with a red Copic marker.

Hi Everyone. Happy New Year!!!! I hope you all had a wonderful evening and that 2015 brings you all of the wonderful things you wish for yourselves and your family :-) Today is the official end of our Christmas vacation and I managed to spend some very good quality time with some of my new SU goodies from the Occasions 2015 and Sale-A-Bration catalog. There are some sets that I am totally in love with and have really enjoyed inking them up and giving them a little crafting love. As usual I went looking for some challenges and found this...
