Year's End.........PP325, CTS#201








I can't believe my year with the Paper Players is coming to an end.  It has been an honor "playing cards" (as Michele Ferguson would say...) with this fabulous group of ladies!  I was delighted when they asked me to be their guest for 2016!  They are an amazing group.....yes talented for sure......but oh so warm, caring, supportive and fun!  It has been a wonderful experience and I thank them from the bottom of my heart!


It wouldn't be Christmas around here without watching Rudolph.......the animated version narrated by Burl Ives.....a true classic!  Can't you just hear him singing Silver and Gold?  That's the first thing I thought of when I saw Jaydee's challenge this week at the Paper Players. 

                                         



I was following the sweet sketch from Cas(e) this Sketch this week when my daughter walked in.  She started braiding the silver and gold cord I had on my desk while we were chatting.......and I said, "Wow I like that....hand it over!"  Such a fun accent! Derailed the sketch plan a bit but I went with it!

It really is a gorgeous card, Linda. I was wondering abut the braided cord and thought what a great idea. So fun to be on the team with you this year and I'll be checking in at your blog for sure.

Linda you will be missed I'm sure as a member of this great Design Team... Just love that blog, but I'm sure another that takes your place as guest will be have as much fun as you.
Your card is FAB.... Love your silver and gold braid. And YES I do think of Beryl Ives when ever someone says silver and gold.... even if it's in the middle of summer! Have a VERY Merry Christmas. Hugs.
