Hello, stampers! It's Sunday, and that means Paper Players time! Jaydee has our theme today, one we can ALL relate to:
I am sure the gallery will be jumping with all kinds of creations this week! I chose to use the Freshly Made Sketches sketch for my card:
and I pulled out my Window Box thinlets and played with the largest opening diecut:
I first cut a circle with the largest Nestability die I had, then layered the die on top and cut it out. It was a little too small to go all the way across my card, so I sliced it and separated it, hiding the opening under my floral banner. You can't even tell, can you?! I stamped a few little leaves from Foxy Friends at the top, a sentiment from Papertrey Ink and added a cotton yarn bow and a little yellow flower for fun!
I had used my Misti to line up my sentiment but had gotten some ink on the inside cover, so a wee little bit got on the edge of the inside of my card, so I just stamped some more greenery to cover it up and added a Paper Pumpkin birthday greeting:
My card is just full of secrets today, isn't it?! I hope you'll create a fun birthday greeting for someone and share it with us at the Paper Players blog! Be sure to check out what the DT did as well! Can't wait to see you in the gallery!
So our kitchen is now in John's big 3-car garage:
He has a carpet cleaning business, so you can see all the supplies behind us. We have everything except the dishwasher...which we DO miss, but it's like camping! And of course, life continues, so Cassidy eats her breakfast there before school, and on Thursday morning, we found a funny little fruit there that Wayne brought home from work; it's called a rambutan, and I had never heard of it! Cassidy was not impressed and told us that it looked like a strawberry that outgrew its hair:
But we're always game for something new, so Dana cut it open and we each tried a piece. It was good...sort of a cross between a pear and a grape.
The skin pops off easily and there is a seed inside which you don't eat. It certainly was an interesting little tidbit!
Anyway, have a blessed day and thanks for popping by!
