Happy Sunday, everyone! Hope you're having a good weekend! It's been a busy one in the Pugliese household, lots of people coming and going, activities, weddings, luncheons, dinners...phew, it's exhausting, but fun seeing family and friends! Joanne is our Paper Players hostess today with a Tic Tac Toe challenge! They're always fun:
I have had this little "wreath" poking around on my desk for several days (and I apologize for the photo quality, just couldn't get a good one for some reason); it was made with a couple of dies I was just experimenting with, so I thought I would use it for Joanne's challenge, going down the middle column of diecut, ribbon and circle. So here we go:
Again, it's pretty CAS because that's just where my brain has been going lately! I wanted to use a small flower but not one that I would normally choose, so I went for the blossom in Hold on to Hope, stamping it three times in Sweet Sugarplum ink and trimming off the stem after diecutting it:
I had a little scrap of Primrose Petals stitched ribbon that I adhered under the flowers, then mounted it on an embossed panel, added a butterfly diecut from the same set and a few pearls:
I added a Primrose Petals mat and the sentiment from Colorful Seasons, also stamped in Primrose Petals:
I left the inside blank, and I'll add a sentiment when I decide what occasion it's for! And since this card is pink, has flowers, and has pearls, I am entering it in the TGIF157 challenge, which is also a Tic-Tac-Toe:
So happy you popped in today! I hope you'll visit the Paper Players blog to see what the others created, and play Tic Tac Toe with us as well!!
We visited Cassidy's school last week for Curriculum Night, which means each second-grade classroom shares an activity related to the topic about which they are learning. Currently, they're learning about Native Americans and how the western US was settled. She played a game on the floor, taking her on the Oregon Trail:
Made a wampum bead bracelet:
Panned for gold:
And piloted a keel ship!
We were very impressed with how detailed the projects were, and these were only a few of them! Hands-on learning! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
