Paper Play Challenges

Hi all! Today is time for a new Paper Play Challenges. This week our talented Heather Maria set the theme of "LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW".

For my card, I decided to play with Papertrey Ink Merry Little Christmas set and the distress ink. I am not sure how I feel about this card. LOL, I guess I am so used of my cards has so many colors on it lately, that just blue & white kind of throw me off a bit. This card is very shimmery actually, as I sprayed it with perfect pearl to finished it off.

Challenges:
Simon Says Stamp - sparkle
Crazy 4 Challenges - christmas
Marks Finest Paper - snowflake

Check out all the amazing cards by Paper Play DT here and I hope you will join and play with us this week!

The sad thing that happened after I made this card was that I lost that bird during cleaning. I have several clear stamps that I want to clean, so kind of just grab a bunch of them and wash them and this little bird slip out of my fingers and I saw it caught on the edge of the drain and as I tried to grab it, plupp...... there it went down the drain. Bye, bye birdie. Hubby was so nice trying to find it back for me by taking apart the drainage, etc., but no such luck. So irritated with myself for being sloppy. Note to self, don't clean stamps when you're tired or sleepy!!

On happier note, look at this lovely packages. 2 boxes already been mailed out to Baton Rouge, Louisiana & New Jersey, for Lori & Ren-Yi to drop at the nursing homes by their place. I will hand delivered for the one in Houston on the first weekend in December (they will receive the Christmas cards as we only have enough Thanksgiving cards for 3 places only).


Come back tomorrow for complete list of all the winners for Caring Hearts Card Drive prizes! Thank you all so much for the lovely comments & encouragement. I really appreciate them. Hugs!! And yay for Thursday! :)

Oh no about your stamp! That really sucks! I totally understand how you feel! Maybe what if you emailed PTI and told them what happened and that you would pay for just the birdie? You n ever know! What a gorgeous card btw!

This is absolutely gorgeous, Vera! The bg is fab and I love the images in white against it! LOVE those sparkly vellum hills too! That's such a pity about your stamp - hubby was so good searching for it too. Well done to you on your card drive, you did a fantastic job and will make a lot of people very happy.
