Today I was able to create a card for the The Paper Players PP381 challenge. I looked over some of my older stamps and came across this older PTI Quilter's Sampler Set. I knew immediately it would be perfect for the challenge.  It was fairly simple to put together, but the hardest part for me was the layout.  I looked through some of the sketches by Julee Tilman and was happy to find one that I felt fit the stamps and sentiments.

The products used:
PTI Quilter's Sampler Set (2008)
Night of Navy, Tranquil Tide card stock
SU Night of Navy ink
True Gentleman DSP
SU Stitched Shapes Framelits
Sketch: MOJO #433
Stripe embossing folder
Buttons from my stash. Not exactly a match, but I think they work, although they don't look as olive as they do in the picture.
That's about it for tonight. Hopefully, I will have a chance to work on another card tomorrow, but I think house cleaning might get in the way. ;} Have a wonderful day tomorrow and I hope you get a chance to do something you love!

Thank You

I had a chance to get inky this rainy afternoon. and created a card to link to Freshly Made Sketches using their sketch, and Just Us Girls colors. By the way, this is the first time I have linked to the Just Us Girls site, but will not be the last.

Products Used:
Crumb Cake, Basic Gray,Bermuda Bay, and Rich Razzelberry SU inks
Totally Trees and Endless Thanks SU Stamp sets
Sizzix Embossing Folder,SU Sliver Metallic Thread,The Paper Studio Enamel Turquoise Stickers

I really chided myself that I hadn't used the Totally Trees only I few times. I was perusing Pintrest and saw so many beautiful cards created using this set. By the looks of my stamps in Endless Thanks, it seems I haven't used that set at all! So sad...

That's about it for tonight. My oldest daughter will be joining us for dinner so I better skedaddle. Have a wonderful weekend and go do something you LOVE!

I Had a Little Surprise ...

Well, maybe a big and exciting surprise this morning. The Epic Celebrations card that I linked to the Paper Players last week was chosen as one of The Cut Above choices. Thank you ladies for choosing my card this week. It truly is an honor.

You all need to go over to the blog and check out the other ladies that were chosen. Congratulations ladies all your cards were beautiful. The HEADLINERS card for the week is just gorgeous. Surely worthy of the honor.

Why not go over to the blog tomorrow for a brand new challenge. I know that the challenges always rev up my creative juices. Have a great weekend and go do something you LOVE!
