Another weekend behind us and on to the start of a new week. I had a very nice weekend, they are always the best when I get to spend them with my peeps. Yesterday I ran some errands in the morning and then met my friend Heather for some lunch. We went to Taco Joe’s and I had a yummy chicken quesadilla. After lunch we ran some more errands, one of which was stopping at Stew Leonard’s, and then went back to Heather’s and had a glass of wine. It was called Juary Gil Jumilia Red and it was quite delicious. I came home and watched another movie (two in one weekend!) called Warm Bodies. It was a zombie movie with a different spin, it was pretty good. What were all of you up to this weekend?
Monday means that it’s time for this week’s Paper Players challenge. This week the clever LeAnne has asked us to make a clean and simple card with stars…
I found the inspiration for my card from one that I saw on Pinterest, speaking of Pinterest if you are a Demonstrator don’t forget to sign up for my webinar on Wednesday, February 26th at 6:00pm Mountain time! The card starts off with a base of Very Vanilla Card Stock. A piece of Coastal Cabana is up next, stamped with the Happy Day Stamp Set in Chocolate Chip and I used the Finishing Touches Edgelits Die along the bottom edge. There is that “Vintage” Young Vermillion again and he is stamped in Chocolate Chip. Along the bottom is one of the stamps from the Perfect Pennants Stamp Set that is stamped in Coastal Cabana. I used one of the Stampin’ Spritzers to spritz on some Coastal Cabana and wound some Linen Thread around the bottom before I adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The three stars from the Merry Mini’s Punch Pack are punched out from Crumb Cake and a heart from Coastal Cabana with the Small Heart Punch are also adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. He needed a little sparkle so I replaced his branch with a piece of Champagne Glimmer Paper! I actually think that that little bird is my all time favorite stamp, he is so detailed! So there you have my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge from LeAnne. I hope that you enjoy the card and thank you for taking some time out of your day to visit with me, have a great Monday! 🙂
