Happy Sunday, peeps! It's time for another Paper Players challenge, this week Claire has a clean-and-simple one for us:
Once again, like on Thursday with the lemony challenge, I find myself without any summer beverage-type stamps! I must really live under a rock or something! In my quest to figure out how to use what I have to create a card suitable for today, I totally spaced out on the CLEAN AND SIMPLE part....so I actually have two cards to show, the challenge one and the spaced-out not-clean-and-simple one! So here we go for the challenge one:
This is not really as CAS as I would like because the elements are diecut and popped up, but I had the idea and I did it anyway! I used a couple of retired sets, Coffee Cafe and Jar of Love, to create my pink lemonade cooler, straw and flowers! I just love these colors of Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo and Mango Melody! I added a couple of words from different non-SU sets to create my sentiment, then plopped on three matching sequins and added some Wink of Stella to my lemonade:
And here is my stepped-up version:
Same basic idea, I just added the diecut stitched frames and more sequins, along with a different summery sentiment on a Word Bubble diecut! I will probably send these out as summer birthday cards! And I am entering this one in the Festive Friday challenge of "Summer"!!
The Design Team came up with some amazing cards this week as well...you need to check them out at the Players blog! Then share your cool, refreshing CAS summer drink creation as well!
So about my visitor....it was my friend Wendy! Hubby Shawn very kindly took this photo of us!
She doesn't live that far away, but she said she thought it was 2005 or 2006 that we last saw each other...crazy! AND she just happened to be the Paper Players headliner yesterday, woohoo! She came for a little visit, and brought me a gorgeous framed piece:
This picture doesn't do it justice.....and I am thrilled because I don't have this stamp set and I can share this with all my customers to show them how beautiful it is! Just gorgeous! Thanks, Wendy!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
