Happy Sunday, peeps! I feel like I have been neglecting my blog friends, not visiting and commenting, so I apologize for that! The sun finally came out yesterday and cheered me up a bit, although it was like going out in a Kansas tornado, the wind was so strong! But January is like that! Anyhoo, Jaydee is our Paper Players hostess this week and look at the colors that blew in from that crazy wind:
Love them together! I chose white as my "other color", and I didn't even realize that I used the same Eastern Palace Specialty DSP for my card today as last week's card!!! But it worked, that's all I can say! I have gotten a slow start on my Christmas cards for this year, so I took the opportunity to make one using some Pretty Pines dies:
I cut out a sprig from each of the challenge colors and mounted them on a panel of Whisper White, adding a Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper bow and some rhinestones for a little extra shine! The sentiment from Christmas Pines was stamped in Tranquil Tide; I cut the sentiment apart, which is simple to do since it's photopolymer, which made it easier to line up on two lines. Here's a little better view of my "greenery":
On the inside I added a simple sentiment from Hearts Come Home (which was carried over, so you can still get it!) and some pine branches from Christmas Pines!
And since I have three sprigs of greenery, I am entering my card in the Jingle Belles challenge of "We Three Kings"....to have three of something on your card!
I hope you'll play with us this at the Players week..the DT has come up with some incredible samples for your inspiration!! Check them out at the Paper Players blog or right here:
I don't have any recent pix of Cassidy, but I thought I would share a couple things she "created" over the last few weeks! One was a pew card she filled in one morning while in church (Mommy helped her), which I thought was really cute and heart-warming:
It may be a little hard to read, but she is thanking God for us being alive, and she checked off ALL the boxes on the request card! On the other side, she felt she had the gift of doing the offering....which I could actually see her doing some day, LOL! She could follow in Wayne and Grampy's footsteps, as they regularly take offering! The other picture....totally the other side of the spectrum, was drawn on an offering envelope...is of a pig! Who can figure what is in children's minds, right?! I love the little tail!
Thanks for popping by today and be blessed!
