Paper Players 103 with NAC1 & CFC60

 DSCF5350
Happy Sunday and welcome back to another Paper Players challenge! Today Anne Marie is our hostess and she has chosen a bright, cheerful color palette to inspire us:
And here is my cheerful card, using the Reason to Smile set available this month:
PP103-LeAnne
This is also for the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge 60, which is to use text; my text came from the set Blessings from Heaven; I cut apart the “friend” sentiment and using my trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig, stamped it in all the challenge colors:

I used the Fancy Fan embossing folder for my card base---I love that it is big enough to do this!  The daisy was stamped on some Patterns Daffodil Delight paper and fussy-cut; the leaves are from Floral District DP.  I stamped the sentiment from Petite Pairs and popped it up, then finished it on the inside with some more stamping, stamping, stamping, as my special friend would say:
 DSCF5353
I also used a sketch from a brand-new challenge site, Nacho Average Challenge!  (Oops, missed that deadline, lol!)  Cute name, huh?  Here it is:
NAC1
I hope these colors inspire you to make something fun & cheerful this week!  We can’t wait to see what you create!  Be sure to stop by the Paper Players blog to see ALL the amazing creations the designers are sharing – they are fabulous!
Nothing like a sliding board on a warm summer day!

    Sliding into water is what she needs with the hot weather I am sure you are having. Our broke today. It isn't like walking into an oven but we have not had rain and there is non coming. It is so dry here everything is brown. Very different for us.
