PPA294 Just A Note


Happy Monday, peeps!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  This is just a quick post with a quick card inspired by some items I saw at Longwood Gardens yesterday!  It also uses my sweet friend Dawn Tidd's sketch at Pals Paper Arts:

PPA-294-Mar31

There were these lovely little soaps all wrapped up in black and white botanical prints....I didn't really have any stamps that fit the bill perfectly, but the Tim Holtz florals that I recently got seemed to be a good substitute:


I added some embossing, gingham ribbon and a sentiment from Watercolor Wishes:


It's nice to just do black and white....clean and fresh!

Yesterday, I had the privilege of meeting one of our Paper Players guest designers in person:  Colleen Begley!  We had lunch then spent a beautiful afternoon at Longwood Gardens....aren't those flowers in the background gorgeous?!  She traveled all the way from California to Delaware and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to meet her!


Enjoy your day!

  8. Love this black and white with the bit of blue flowers. Have not used my Tim Holtz flower set like yours but I might just case this card and make a bunch...all different with the 5 flowers in that set. I have four bags of lilies to plant that look just like those in the garden behind you. so beautiful. TFS Hugs, Martha
