Warmth and Wonder for Paper Players #169

Hello there! Long time no blog, eh? After a couple of weeks off from the *blog-o-sphere*, I am back with my card for the Paper Players challenge this week. I am hosting this week and I created this sketch to try out. I hope you like my sketch and will join us for the challenge. 
I used the Warmth and Wonder Hostess set from the Stampin' Up Holiday catalog for the stamped image and the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes. The little tree is so simple yet perfect for holiday cards. I added some sparkle to the "ornaments using Dazzling Details glitter glue. The little trio of banners are washi tape attached to some Crumb Cake card stock. The washi tape would have shown the textured background if I just stuck it to the card. I have a washi tape obsession right now. Anyone else? I really need an intervention to stop buying so much. There are just so many fun patterns out there, it's hard not to try to buy it all. Ha! 
Before I go, I will share our new "house guest" with you. This is our newest foster Gidget. She is a little Brussels Griffon mix and almost 2 years old. Look at that under bite! She is an absolute doll and will be headed to Colorado in mid-November. 
Please join us over at the Paper Players The challenge is open through Friday, November 1st, 2013 at Noon (PDT). Stop by and say hello to the rest of the Design Team to see what they are sharing this week.

Trick or Treat Kitty for Paper Players #166

Hello and Happy Sunday to you! Today finally feels like fall here in South Texas and what better way to get into the season then with a Halloween card? This week at the Paper Players, the lovely and talented Nance is our hostess with a fun "Trick or Treat" theme challenge.
For my card, I actually CASE'd myself. Haha! I made another card with the Frightening Feline stamp and I changed up the colors and patterns a bit to make it more "traditional" Halloween.  I guess I may have cheated a little bit, but I haven't had a lot of extra time this week to spend in the stamp studio. Do you sometimes use projects you have already made as inspiration for new projects?  Sometimes I need a little "kick" to get the mojo workin' again.
It's tough to see in the photo but the kitty is embossed in black for added shine. The Champagne Glimmer paper and some bling finished everything off. I hope you will join us this week over at the Paper Players. The challenge is open until Friday October 11th, 2013 at Noon (PDT). Be sure to stop by and visit the rest of the Design Team to see what they have created for the challenge:

Before I sign off, I wanted to share a new photo of our little foster puppy Sabrina. Well, actually her new family decided to name her Willow...but I'm having a tough time remembering to call her that. This little lady is going to be headed to her new home in Minnesota this week. Her new family is super excited to finally meet her. We are going to miss this little bundle of cuteness! :)
