Paper Players 100


Happy Sunday---Happy Father’s Day---Happy 100th Paper Players Challenge!  WOOHOO!  This week, in honor of this absolutely stupendous event, the Paper Players are having a blog hop! 

Each Player has chosen a favorite challenge from the past 100 and made a new creation!  (You can read more about it on the Paper Players blog!)  And one lucky winner will receive ALL the cards created by the PP designers!  Wow!  For my card, I chose a pretty sketch from Anne Marie, sketch #65:

Here is my original card:


Now, for the new card----I just got some new goodies from SU, so I pulled them out---Decorate a Daisy, Fabulous Phrases (a SAB redemption set—woohoo!), and the new Dahlia embellishments in Midnight Muse!  The deep rich colors of the Comfort Cafe paper inspired the colors for my daisy:


The daisy is stamped in Cajun Craze and the center is Summer Starfruit; I added some banners from the Itty Bitty Banner dies, embellished with a little pearl, then added the dahlias and a button, just for fun!  Hmmm, seems to me last week’s card had a bird on it as well! Well, I do love my birds!


If you’re hopping around, you may have come from Jaydee’s blog, but here’s a list of everyone!  We’d love to have you participate in one or all of the designers’ challenges!

Thank you, also, for all the sweet messages about Pumpkin…they are very much appreciated!  And now, back to the other love of my life, Cassidy:

I just LOVE that grin!  Have a great day!

Great card, I loved that sketch as well.
Cassidy looks like she is having a great time in the pool. If it gets any hotter here I might have to come and join her in it.

Hey LeAnne, we picked the same sketch! It's a great one isn't it? I love your mix of patterns here and all those colors are so beautiful together--perfectly Indian summer. I love the double colored banner carried by that sweet birdie. Fabulous choice for the challenge!

LeAnne, I love your bold card and you really rocked the colors. I also love your little bluebird of happiness. I loved your original card, but this one rocks! Happy 100th! It's been wonderful getting to know you.

Linda Callahan said...

The card is awash with color - so rich! And your little mermaid is positively gleeful about that splash!

Kim S said...

Gorgeous use of the papers and colors! That big beautiful flower with the little bird and sentiment is a lovely use of the layout!

Patti said...

LeAnne, I love the bright, cheerful colors you used on this card. This will certainly brighten someone's day. Looks like Cassidy is really enjoying that little water slide.

Absolutely gorgeous, LeAnne! Your attention to detail is amazing!

Denise Marzec said...

Ooooooooh, those papers are PRETTY!

Linda said...

Oh what a fun time! Love the pool pictures. That is a killer grin.
Your card is wonderful. I am so amazed that all these patterns go together so well. So pretty! And you got your sewing machine out. Very very cool.

Lesley said...

Thank you LeAnne, I will always remember your encouraging email, telling me to go for it! The Paper Players blog has come a long way, thank you for all of your support and for always being there for me as a sounding board! Your card this week is fabulous (as always), I overlooked that set, the bird fussy cut is amazing.

Gisela said...

The colors on this card look very good together and the flower is perfect.

Colleen said...

Great looking card and I also love that little birdie with banner.
Card is sure to bring a smile to anyone's face.

Queenie Jeannie said...

That is one happy girl, with her fancy pool!!! Kids rock!

As does your card!! I spy all kinds of gorgeous new SU goodies! My big, new catty order should be here either today or tomorrow - *squeal!*

Tui Nathan said...

Oh wow .... this is beautiful LeAnne, that pretty yellow centre is like the morning sunrise with a sweet bird heralding the new day .... love love love those pretty gorgeous flowers too!
Congratulations on the "century" milestone, wow, a major achievement indeed!

Bonnie said...

Bright and pretty, LeAnne! Cassidy looks like she's having a ball in that pool!

Anne Marie Hile said...

Both of your cards are gorgeous with the sketch, LeAnne! I love the weathered look and your beautiful shading of the original card but that color combo on the new card stopped me in my tracks. I struggle with Cajun Craze...but after seeing this one, no more!! Those little dahlias are the perfect touch. So glad to be a part of this wonderful team with you, my friend! Big hugs!

PS: I love Cassidy's BIG smile in the last photo! Looks like she loves cooling off in that pool! Wheee! :)

Colleen Dietrich said...

Fabulous red, yellow and blue card! You make primary colors look so beautiful together. :)

Hands On said...

Fab card. Love the stitching and the way you layered the tag. Looks great :)

H2 :) said...

Fabulous card LeAnne! Love the colours & prints you have combined & the sweet little bird with the layered banners. Happy 100th! :)

Julie E said...

Oh my, I remember this sketch!!! Both are great takes :>) What fab papers on your new one - so rich and warm.
Cute pics too :>)

Danielle Vincent said...

Oh boy LeAnne - I love all those papers and colors together. It's terrific (and I loved the original too)!
I love reading about your darling granddaughter and seeing the photos. Thanks for sharing with us.
