PP #162 ~ Hi!

Hi! After a couple of days filled with an unusual heat wave we're back to pleasant temps. I took advantage of being indoors and staying cool by doing a little crafting. I couldn't resist the colors for the Paper Players challenge this week and had to play along.



I've said it before and I'll say it again, pool party is one of my favorite SU colors! I've used it as the  main color on this card filling in with the complimenting rich razzleberry and basic black. Isn't this row of Linden trees cute! I used a water color pen along with a Tombow marker to swipe on the color. A MFT die cut leaf holds a tiny IO bird perched on my Precious Remembrance sentiment. A sweet and simple card that went together quickly!

So happy you popped by today ~Lisa

Lisa, this card is just SO lovely! I love the colors too! We've had quite a bit of a heat wave here as well - but I am not complaining in the slightest! With 7 months of winter on the horizon, I will take as many hot days as I can possibly get! big hugs!

Love these colors & boy did you use them to perfection! The dry embossing looks really neat as a background. Fabulous card, Lisa! PS--my sis got a kick out of you saying she needed a blog. She actually hates anything to do with the computer, but she really had fun getting some cards made while she was visiting.
