What a gorgeous day! It was sunny with a slight breeze, just perfect! I spent the day crafting and going outside to sit and enjoy the weather. A nice relaxing day. My mum and dad went out to see my brother, Erika and Daniel. Erika took my mum and her mum out to dinner. I Skyped with Eva for a bit and then Taylor and I ran to Target to pick up some essentials. Taylor is watching Ink Masters on the Apple TV and they did inside the mouth tattoos… YUK! Another reason that I don’t watch much TV! How was your day? I hope that all of the Mums had a lovely day spent with their families doing everything for them while they crafted the day away!
I can’t believe that it’s Monday already, but it does mean that it’s time for this week’s Paper Players. Before I show you this week’s challenge I want to thank Laurie for choosing me as her headliner for last week’s challenge! You can see the winners post HERE and my original post HERE. Now for this week’s challenge…
Fun colors! I played with some more new goodies! My card base Neenah Solar White 110lb For the background I used a new to me die from Memory Box called Starry Night Background, it’s cut out of Sahara Sand, backed with some Lost Lagoon and then adhered to the base with SNAIL. My tag is a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Large Tags Dies. I stamped the greeting from the Simon Says Stamp Hand Lettered Encouragement in Lost Lagoon. A piece of Pistachio Pudding Thick Baker’s Twine is tied through the top and the the tag is adhered with a piece of Fun Foam in between. The branch, bird and leaves are cut from Soft Suede and Pistachio Pudding using the Simon Says Stamp Songbird Branch Die. The branch is tucked under the tag and the the bird is adhered with a piece of Foam Tape. Some of the stars and sequins from the 2013-2015 In-Color Designer Sequins are adhered around the card for a little shine. I love that starry background, so much fun and the sentiment is just great! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players color challenge. Thanks for coming by today, have the bast Monday that you can! 🙂
