Hello Life for Paper Players #228

Hello there, stamping friends! Well, I am trying to get back into the swing of things on my blog and I'm slowly but surely getting into the "crafty groove" again. This week at The Paper Players our  lovely hostess, LeAnne has a fun challenge to get the creativity flowing. We are keeping it Clean and Simple (CAS) with a focus on the sentiment. 
I love cards with big, BOLD sentiments! As soon as I saw the challenge LeAnne had planned for us, I knew I wanted to use the new Hello Life stamp set. I ADORE this sentiment! The color combo is Hello Honey, Bermuda Bay and Smokey Slate.

Here is quick shot of the inside of the card: 
Please join us over at The Paper Players! The challenge closes on Friday, January 23rd, 2015 at Noon (PST). Stop by and say hello to the Design Team. Thank you so much for stopping by to visit today. Happy Stamping! :)

Before I sign off, I wanted to share a photo of my Ozzy that I took on Christmas Eve. My sweet boy is 10 years old this year and I can't believe it. Time sure flies, doesn't it? 
PS: I have had a few messages about sharing photos of my new craft space here on the blog...I have a little more work to do and then I will post a some photos, I promise. I have one desk to paint and just got some storage delivered from Stamp N' Storage (Hooray!) that I'm trying to get organized and placed. Almost finished...


  1. Do more of what makes you happy - ain't that the truth! Fabulous card using colors that work so well together and I just love the big sentiment.

  2. A perfect sentiment for this challenge, and just a perfect sentiment! Your Ozzie is just too adorable, love his shirt and tie!

  3. Anne Marie, I love this color combo! The sentiment is such a great reminder to all of us! So glad you are back to crafting with us, My Friend! XX

  4. I sure agree with that sentiment! Beautiful card, love the colors you chose and the embossed background,too!

  5. I just love this, Anne Marie! Big, bold and in beautiful colors! The embossed hearts are a perfect background! And Ozzy is just so handsome!!!

  6. A pretty pretty card Anne Marie! Can't wait to see your crafty space! You little guy Ozzy looks so cute an great for 10. I am still absolutely heartbroken over the loss of my sweet little Max in October, I miss him so much. Give Ozzy a little extra snuggle from me ;)

  7. Such a yummy card, Anne Marie! I love the texture and the sequin accents!

  8. Oh, wait! I put my glasses on...and I see they are your signature rhinestones! lol

  9. I so love this sentiment - I need to buy this set for this stamp alone! Your card is lovely and puts it centre stage - love the textured heart background too. A great card Anne Marie - and a cute dog too!

  10. Ann Marie, you certainly are 'getting back into the swing of things' with a bang...your card is gorgeous!! I love your color combo, the embossed hearts background, and the pop of yellow you added to the sentiment...such a happy card!!

  11. AM, when I saw this challenge I knew it was perfect for you! As usual, you have pulled together some fabulous colors and, even though you have multiple layers, the card still has great clean lines. As for Ozzy...... makes my heart melt :-)
    So good to have you back with us and playing again


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment!
