Celebrating 200! PPA200





Pals Paper Arts is celebrating its 200th post today - definitely a number worth celebrating! Our entire team of 20 designers have joined together to create monochromatic cards to showcase Stampin' Up's beautiful colors!  I followed this week's sketch and used Pistachio Pudding, Summer Silhouettes and Label Love to create a sweet baby card.  If you join in the fun and link up your card to the gallery you will have a chance to win all 20 of the DT cards this week. Check out the details at PPA!

I joined the Pals Paper Arts Design Team way back in August 2010 with Challenge #56.  Thought you might like to see the very first card I posted (using the retired set Just Believe) as a Design Team Member!





It's been a great adventure and I have met so many wonderful crafters along the way.  I am grateful to all of you for your comments, e-mails and support..........looking forward to the next 200 posts!


                        Hope you join us this week at PPA!

Diggin' It! FMS132





Sometimes you make a card just for the fun of it.........you could say I was diggin' it!



                      Love Jen Brum's cute sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

Signs of Spring!



It was a beautiful Palm Sunday here in the Northeast - actually warm enough to have brunch on the porch! I gladly put away the boots and the heavy winter jackets but am keeping the turtlenecks and fleece jackets handy just in case! I also assembled Emma's Easter basket and tucked this card inside. That Watercolor Wonder paper is perfect for an Easter egg! I hope Emma likes these little bunnies from Ears to You better than that big bunny on the porch....she doesn't seem too sure about that guy!

Easter Colors - FMS 131







One tiny drop of Strawberry Slush ink lifted from the cover of the ink pad was enough to color my white embossing paste a lovely shade of pink - the perfect garden wall for my spring flowers!  And my plan for this final week leading into Easter is to focus on the colors of spring found in the early flower buds, baby bunnies, fuzzy chicks and new nests of eggs.  I will try very hard to ignore all of those wonderful colors also found in jelly beans, chocolate bunnies, yellow peeps and those fabulous wonderful speckled malted milk eggs...............
