Quill You Be My Valentine? PP375 and Stamp Ink Paper #131

January 7, 2018

We are back from our holiday break and ready for  our first challenge of 2018 at The Paper Players!  We are so excited for you to join us!

The sensational Sandy is our hostess this week and she has a fun theme challenge for all of us.  It won't be long until Valentine's Day, so it is a great opportunity to get started on your stash.

I own a LOT of stamps, but this was my only stamp set with a "Punny" sentiment.  I was excited to find it in my stash.  This little angel made me smile!  

I am also entering my card in the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge.  They are all about "embossing" this week and that is my favorite thing to do on a card.  

I added a picture of the wobble spring on the back of my angel.  I thought this made the card even more fun.  I bet one of my grands will pull him right off this card!  LOL!  

Need some inspiration?  Visit the blogs of all the members of our DT!  You won't be disappointed!  This week we're welcoming a brand-new Guest Designer, Elizabeth and welcoming back Annie and Jan.  We're delighted to have all of them with us!

I have been featuring some of my favorite holiday moments.  I shared a very special evening with my dear friend, Leah.  We celebrated her "50th" birthday by attending the Jennifer Nettles concert with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.  We had a fabulous dinner and the concert was AMAZING!  I am a huge Jennifer Nettles fan. I love her voice and she is a Native Georgian.  

Have a fabulous week!

  2. Soooo cute! Love that little PS cupid... and the bulls eye you created is just wonderful!

  3. Claire, that wobbly cupid is absolutely delightful and I love the embossed background, too. Fabulous take on the challenge, my friend. Oh.... and what a fabulous photo of you and your friend. Sounds like a wonderful way to celebrate a 50th birthday!

  4. So cute! Love the target made with the stitched circles! Great background too. Thanks for joining us at Stamp Ink Paper, hope to see you again soon!

  7. Too darn cute! Love your sweet wobble card!

  8. Claire this card has 'fun' written all over it! What a cute sentiment, so perfect for this challenge, and that cupid on a wobble spring is A-dorable! Love it!

  9. I was loving the layered target and embossed background Claire and when I saw Cupid was on a wobble spring I fell head-over-heels in love with this card - so cute and fun! Your grands will all want to receive this one!

  10. Awesome card Claire, I love the layered target and the fact that you put cupid on a wobbler. Nice to see that lovely photo of you and your friend too. Clairex

  11. Oh my this little guy is fabulous! The layered bullseye was awesome enough but then I saw the “wobble” and that just sent it over the top! As is this wonderful pic of you two. Love it all!

  12. So cute Claire! I love the pun, and that lil guy is adorable.The concert sounds fun too!

  13. I had to laugh at your write-up for this darling card. My DGS pulls things off my cards all the time - wobbly or not! Very cute! Have a fantastic weekend xoxo
