Good morning, peeps! I am the hostess at the Paper Players today, and I’ve got a color challenge for you! Here you go:
Recently, I received this sweet card from a friend, and was enamoured with the colors in it---three of them were similar to our new In Colors:
So that is from where I drew my inspiration, not only for the colors but some of the elements in my own card:
Instead of a heart, I used a Labels die and stamped some of the floral images from Flower Patch randomly on the white panel. In hindsight, I wish I had not used the lighter shade of Blackberry Bliss (just stamped off on scrap paper) as I think it detracts from the true color, but I’ve had a busy weekend and I just didn’t have time for a re-do! I did stamp some leaf images directly onto the All Abloom DP, which is kind of fun, and did a pleated ribbony thing to mimic the banner in the inspiration card. A sentiment from And Many More, with some pearl embellishments, finished it off!
I hope you will visit the Paper Players blog, or the designers’ blogs, because they ROCKED these colors….they are all just gorgeous! Here they are:
This is what happens when your little people are naughty; they go into a frying pan:
Oh, this child!

Happy Friday, peeps! Today is family day—big wedding day for my niece and I get to spend some time with ALL my siblings and family and dad….a banner day for me, so this will be short and sweet! Can you stand another wedding card? I know someone will be at my door today asking if I have any wedding cards made, and when I saw that CAS(e) This Sketch was featuring both my friends Lesley and Tracey, I knew I had to play along….besides, the sketch by Chrissy is awesome! I took a few tiny liberties with it. Here it is:
Lesley’s card and layout really inspired me! I just changed the flowers to hearts….lot of them:
Again, the colors are pink and gold, and I don’t think I ever used this beautiful gold vellum (which is on special this week at SU!!!!) but it was perfect for my theme! I used a sentiment from Delightful Dozen, added a few Brushed Gold hearts and it was done! CAS for sure!
Enjoy your day!
Cassidy was a busy little girl yesterday! She sang Frozen’s Let it Go to me:
convinced her 17YO cousin to sit down and have a tea party with her (he is SUCH a good sport!)
and helped me with a couple of convention swaps:
Such a good helper!

We picked almost 40 pounds of blueberries in the last three days from our very generous neighbor’s farm. Cassidy was totally enthralled by the trays of frozen berries:
