Happy Friday everyone! It was another absolutely beautiful day here yesterday! I went over to see Sue and I got to have the top down in the car! Oh how I have missed that! We got some Etsy stuff accomplished and went and had bagels for lunch. When we got back to Sue’s we spoke to Michael and then I headed home to see my little Daniel! He came over to my house and let Winston out, gave him a biscuit and then we went for a walk. On the way back he sat on my shoulders and told my mum “look at how tall I am Nanny!” when we got back to the house. When I went to leave he said with a very sad face “Uncle Justin, you didn’t tell Daniel that you love him”. So I told him that I did and I got a hug and a kiss! He is just the cutest little man ever! From there I headed over to Heather’s and we ran up to IKEA to get her another chair and lamp. When we got back I assembled the new goodies and then Adam and Stephanie came over for Thirsty Thursday. Another wonderful day! Today I’ll be off to The Ink Pad for my Hero Arts Class tonight and then I’ll be at Kim’s. It’s back to The Ink Pad for the day tomorrow with Anna! Here is a little selfie of Daniel and I on the way back from our walk…

Oh I just love that little guy so much! Note that he has his remote in his hand, you never know when you are going need one of those! LOL!

Now on to today’s post which is for this week’s Paper Players challenge…

Paper Players #285

I did a little hybrid of the two! My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Smoky Slate. I stamped my greeting from the Simon Says Stamp Hand Lettered Encouragement Photopolymer Stamp Set In Onyx Black on the background. A piece of Basic Gray is cut out with the Mama Elephant Framed Tags – Madison Avenue Creative Cuts. I adhered a piece of Acetate to the back of the frame with Scor-Tape and then added a layer of Foam Tape. A piece of Solar White 80lb is cut out with the Mama Elephant Landscape Trio Creative Cuts and adhered to the card. I added some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear and Marshmallow Sequins and then adhered the frame to the card. Some more Solar White 80lb and a piece of Daffodil Delight are cut out with the Mama Elephant Stitched Sky Creative Cuts and adhered to the card with E-Z Runner and Foam Tape. The raindrops are from the same die set and are adhered to the Acetate with Multi-Matte Medium. I love that Madison Avenue Frame and the sentiment is a really nice and different one! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge! Thank you so much for coming by and visiting me today! I wish you all the best Friday ever! 🙂
