Hello You! PP293, CTS170

A splash of bright balloons add a festive look to this bicycle from Pedal Praise, an early Paper Pumpkin kit.  And when you turn the strings from Balloon Celebration upside down you discover they work perfectly with little balloon images from Party Wishes!  I love those little discoveries!

My amazing friend Nance Leedy has a fun bicycle theme for us this week at the Paper Players!

Oh that talented Hannelie designed a cool sketch at Cas(e) this Sketch!

Hello Baby....FMS224

The thing about babies is that they don't stay babies for long. Our "baby" is now very interested in where everyone lives.  She loves learning the names of towns and does pretty well remembering who lives where with one minor exception - our camp - which is on the Sacandaga Lake (pronounced Sack-en-dog-a).   As we drove to camp this weekend her mother asked Emma if she remembered where the camp was.  And Emma replied, "On Shutthedogup Lake!"  She does have a point.....there are five of them when we all get together.....

Emma and Uncle racing to the beach......the dogs are already down there.....barking....

I love the wide open sketch my talented friend Jen Timko created this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Soft subtles brushed across white cardstock created the shading on my sentiment which was die cut more than once to give it substance. A snippet of designer paper from a retired set tied everything together!


This card also works for the Stamp Ink Paper Baby Challenge.

Simply Hi! PP292

Sometimes you just want a simple card that says Hi.....and that's all......

I just love this giraffe from Zoo Babies and decided to use him as one of the layers on Claire's fabulous sketch this week at the Paper Players.
