Paper Players 208

Posted on

And there goes another weekend! I spent a good part of the day in Manhattan helping out a few friends. I was running around and I didn’t go anywhere new so I didn’t take any pictures. However, I did take a few pictures when I was in PA on Saturday. When I was little and would go there the town was a lot less crowded and there were less houses. There are so many new houses behind my Grandmother’s but when I was standing outside the funeral home and looked across the street I could see clear over to the mountains…


You can see that the houses in the picture are newer, they weren’t there when I was a kid. After we got back from the cemetery we went to this little restaurant for lunch. If you ever happen to be in the Ringtown are and want some food I would highly recommend it. The prices were great, service was excellent and the food was delicious!


And yes, there is a creek the runs along side the place! 🙂

Well if it’s Monday that means that it’s time for this week’s Paper Players challenge. For this one we have an unusual color combo from Nance…

Paper Players #208

I think that the inspiration picture is neat! My card starts off with a base of Basic Gray Card Stock. My background is stamped with the coral from the By the Sea Stamp Set in Hello Honey. The shells are stamped in Basic Gray on Calypso Coral and Blushing Bride and cut out with my Paper Snips. Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere them to the card. The love is a piece of Calypso Coral that I cut out with the “Vintage” Expressions Thinlits and adhered to the card with Multi-Purpose Glue. I stamped the You from the Work of Art Stamp Set in Blushing Bride and some gray iridescent sequins complete the background. I mounted it to a piece of Hello Honey before adhering it to the base. I love the way that the Love and the You look like they were made for each other. A simple but sweet card! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players color challenge. Thank you so much for coming buy and I wish you a happy easy Monday! 🙂
