Hi stampers! Hope your weekend is going along smoothly! It's time for another Paper Players challenge with Anne Marie as our hostess, and she has a color palette for us:
Lots of beautiful fall colors! I did struggle a wee bit with this one, but in the end, I think I managed to pull it off! I had this large gold foil diecut piece on my desks for DAYS...just sort of pushing it around, wondering what to do with it. I finally decided, since the challenge asks for glitter or foil, to use it as a background piece on my card today! Here we go:
Most of the pieces from the die stayed intact, so I left them as they were, only pushing out "matching" ones along the outer edges! I stamped some images from Comfort and Hope and Positive Thoughts as a background on a Very Vanilla card base, then stamped some Cajun Craze flowers from All Things Fabulous:
I added a sentiment from Comfort and Hope as well, and tied a one-hole bow with some retired Blackberry Bliss twine; the one-hole bow keeps it in place and it doesn't slide around! You can't see it here, but the flowers are glittered with some Wink of Stella, and there are also a few rhinestones placed around as well! I love these fall colors together, and I hope you will too! Be sure to check out what the DT created at the Paper Players blog, and share you creations with us as well! Thanks for popping in today!
My niece and her husband had a fish fry yesterday with lots of family and friends. Cassidy absolutely would not stand still to let me take her picture, so I took some of my niece's piglets:
They get the piglets from a local Amish farmer; they are the runts of the litters, so he doesn't want them! They were so cute! My niece and her hubby also raise chickens and goats while working full-time jobs!
Thanks for popping in today---enjoy it and be blessed! My friend Cheryl told me that yesterday was Encouragement Day and gave me this verse, which is one of my favorites:
"Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing."
1 Thessalonians 5:11
