You're Too Kind

My son and daughter in law have been visiting us and my daughter in law has never stamped or made cards before.  When she saw my craft room overflowing with stamps, paper, embellishments and all of the fun crafting supplies I've acquired over the years she wondered if I'd mind if she'd learn to make cards.  "ABSOLUTELY you may!", I said.  "Help yourself to anything you find." 

She is a natural and has made quite a number of cards while she's been here.  But the best part of all is that she's inspired me to rediscover my stamps and card making as well and we are having just the best time making cards together.

The challenge at The Paper Players this week is a color challenge as shown in the picture below.  I didn't have the exact colors listed but I used what I had that were as close as possible to these.

Card Recipe
Stamps:              Stampin' Up! Serene Sunflower and Stampin' Up! Whimsical Words

Ink:                    Stampin' Up! Summer Sun, Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay
                           Autumn Leaves Pretty Poppy Green
                           Momento Tuxedo Black

Accessories:       Stampabilities Nestabilities Tag Die

Embellishments: Stickles Glitter Glue in Yellow, Diamond and Gunmetal
                             Foam Dimensional tape to pop up the bee
Until next time,
