I had a very relaxing Easter and hope that you had a nice one too! I spent the morning making some cards, did laundry and watched some movies. I got to FaceTime with my cousin Tracey in England and then spoke to my parents who are over there too. Boy do I wish I was over there! The last time I went was 2007, it has been far too long. I had a bad dinner last night, popcorn and jellybeans, it went with the movie! LOL! Saturday night I went to dinner with a group of friends and we had a great time. We haven’t all gotten together in a while so we had a lot to catch up on. All in all a very good weekend!

Today is Monday, back to work, but it’s also time for this week’s Paper Players challenge. This week we have a CAS Washi themed challenge for the lovely Nance…
I love the Washi tape that we have but I definitely don’t use it enough so I was happy to see this challenge. My card base is a simple piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock and I stamped the greeting from the A Dozen Thoughts right on the base in Baked Brown Sugar. The three pieces of Washi tape are from the Retro Fresh This & That Designer Washi Tape Collection. I used the Little Leaves Sizzlit to cut out some Coastal Cabana for my leaves and the flowers are form the Petite Petals Stamp Set. They are stamped in So Saffron and Tangerine Tango and punched out with the Petite Petals Punch. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere them to the card and some Subtles and Brights Collection Candy Dots are in the middles. I love the colors in the Retro Fresh Collection and the Washi tape really does help to make a nice CAS card. Thank you for coming by to see my Paper Players CAS Washi challenge card for this week. Don’t forget about the Retired List and FREE Shipping Promotions! Have a great Monday! 🙂
