Get ready...

...to not hear from me for a while!  IF I get time, I'll be posting some posts, but I won't have a ton of time for the next few weeks to post regularly, other than the scheduled DT post (hopefully they post...fingers crossed).  Okay, so there you have it!  I've got some cards I HAVE to show you before I leave, though!

Here's the first one~

Details~



For these fabulous challenges~

(Use markers--I used mine to color my stamp!)

(I've used up some of my washi tape, scraps, & rhinestones!)

(I used the Circles, Dry Embossing, Punches line.)


I had the idea to use lots of color to showcase my SU! markers and this was the perfect stamp!  I grabbed my washi tape and couldn't figure out how to use it until I realized it would make a fun fake ribbon bottom!  So, that's what I used it for!  Hope you like it--this card was super fun to make and I LOVE it! :)

Second card~

Details~




For these fabulous challenges~




This one totally had a mind of it's own...my original thought was to create some sort of brick wall or something, but then I spied this stamp set from Prima (not sure the name) and it had this wonderful border stamp and I KNEW I should use it!  Just a bit of bling and then I turned it into an aperture card...because that's fun!  Voila! ;)

Thanks for stopping by--I'll miss you all while I'm away but will look forward to seeing you when I return from my sister's wedding!  Happy stamping--and THANK YOU for being here! :)

Both cards are great! I do love the layout on the PP card and I never have the patience to color in all the images with markers, so, hat's off to you for that! So glad you were able to play with the Paper Players this week!
