About Me

My photo
I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

I'm half way through my two week road trip and I'm looking forward to heading home on Thursday evening. Since today is Sunday, it's time for the Paper Players challenge 301. We sure had fun celebrating #300 last weekend. This week, Joanne is our hostess with a fun sketch.

I made my card the evening before flying out, so I needed to keep things pretty simple, but no less cute. I love this bear from Ellen Hutson and he was perfect to use for a friends birthday card.

I didn't take a picture of the inside. It says, LOVE, HUGS, SUNSHINE and Happy Birthday!

As always, you'll find awesome inspiration when you visit the other DT's blogs listed below:
