I'm submitting this picture for The Paper Players - Anything Goes Challenge #13 which represents a golf tee & marker set I made for a few of my golfing gal pals and thought they turned out kinda cute. They're made from S.U. Whisper White CS and stamped with the new "On the Green" stamp in Garden Green ink. I cut a strip of CS 9 3/4" (l) x 2 3/4" (w), then scored at increments of 2", 2 1/2", 5 1/2", 7", & 7 1/2", played with the folding, added 4 round openings to insert the golf tees & another for the ball marker. Cut a slit to close the cover and called it done!

Bingo Thank You!

This is a Thank You card made for one of my friends who hosted a few days of relaxation and fun at her summer cottage in Port Austin, MI. There were 4 of us altogether (the same 4 who golf together during the week), we golfed, played Bingo, shopped, dined out, chatted to the wee hours of the morning and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our hostess absolutely LOVES Bingo so we all went with her to the local Bingo Hall and I must say the three of us are certainly Bingo Challenged. The numbers are called very quickly, people follow multiple cards and a lot of other distractions. Needless to say our hostess probably won't take us there again. Anyhow this is the card from the three of us. The idea for the card came from Dawn McVey's blog which I find inspiring.

This is my version of a KISS Masculine card for the PPA#54 Challenge!
Criteria was lots of white space, minimum layering, little or no embellishments or bling and quick and easy to make.
I think this qualifies, don't you?
Supplies: Stamps from On the Green, bird from Aviary and sentiment unknown
Whisper White CS, Green Garden Ink
Dotted Swiss Cuttlebug embossing folder
Scraps of real red CS & real red marker for the stitching.

Peaceful Purple

This is my entry (first ever!) for the PPA#53 contest using a monochromatic color purple. Couldn't help myself though I had to add a smidge of Old Olive and of course Whisper White to stamp the beautiful image of Ornate Bossom. I also used tthe smaller version of the stamp from Friends Never Fade using versamark on the face of the purple card front (although it's difficult to see). I also outlined the image of the blossom with a purple glitzy ink that doesn't show up at all in the photo. Finished the card off with a scallop oval of Old Olive topped with the sentiment from Watercolor Trio, wrapped it up with a white satin ribbon.
