Happy Sunday, peeps! Hope your weekend is going well! Joanne is our hostess this week at the Paper Players with a much-needed theme challenge! Make a card that will make someone smile! We all need that, right?!
Of course, the Share Sunshine PDF came at the perfect opportunity, because look at this cute sentiment:
I mean, what is with the TP hoarding? Our local grocery store still doesn't have any! Good thing I am a "stock up" kind of shopper, I had a few on hand when this all started! I printed my download on computer paper as my little Canon printer refuses to print on cardstock, but it worked fine....my shading with the Blends went a little wonky, but it is TP, after all! I used the TGIF Challenge colors for this week:
I diecut a Stitched Rectangle of each of the challenge colors from a gingham panel, adhered them on a card front, then embellished my sentiment with some of the felt cuties from Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit:
I added another Sunshine sentiment on the inside and added some strips of cardstock to keep with the challenge colors:
What will you put on your card to make someone smile? I have to admit, my cards are not often "funny" ones, I go more for thoughtful or sentimental, so this is out of my comfort zone a bit! My mom ALWAYS sent funny cards, and I miss them, so I guess maybe I should go out of that zone a little more! Share yours with us at The Paper Players, and be sure to check out what the design team did as well...there are some cute ones! Thanks for popping by!
My brother gave me a few more bulbs from Longwood and I quickly stuck them in the ground, where they bloomed the next day! I didn't even have a chance to mulch them or anything! They are tiny narcissus:
But they are so pretty as I come up the drive from my daily walk! And speaking of Longwood, their blog has an interesting article on what the Facilities team (of which my brother is a part) is doing while they are closed. It's not full of technical stuff, and it's actually pretty informative! You can see it HERE. Enjoy your day and be blessed!
