Well, I am back from vacation AND I MISSED EVERYBODY!!! It is a good thing that Jaydee’s theme challenge for the Paper Players this week is a Clean & Simple one! (My mojo is still on vacation; it took me way too long to do this card!) A few hours after our return, we got news that a family member had passed away, so I took the opportunity to make a CAS sympathy card:
I always think that this tree from Lovely as a Tree is a perfect image for a masculine card. I used sponge daubers to apply some fall colors to the tree and watercolored the trunk and grass. A sentiment from Thoughts & Prayers was stamped in Old Olive to tie in with the Old Olive brads I used on the Twill ribbon.
I hope you’ll take the opportunity to play with the Paper Players in this challenge! Be sure to check out their blog and share your creation with us as well; you can use the keyword PP14 if you post using an online gallery.
It’s good to be home, but I always feel a bit rusty after taking so much time off! I hope you’ll bear with me as I get back in the stampin’ saddle! And of course, I can’t go without posting a cute picture of my new granddaughter:
I know, I know….this is a stamping blog, right? You’re probably tired of seeing pictures of her, but just indulge me for a bit longer! :D
