Hello New Home Paper Players 472

Jan. 5, 2020

Happy New Year!  WOW---how strange is it to type 2020!!!!

I sure hope you had a wonderful holiday season.  I know I did and I enjoyed our little crafty break.  

But, now it is time to play with The Paper Players!

The lovely Jaydee is our hostess and she has a very fun theme challenge for all of us!  Something NEW!  So many possibilities-- a new home, baby, pet, year, etc!  Have fun and get creative!  

We also want to welcome our new guest designers for the year:  Allisa SteinlichtMary Deatherage and 
Stef Perry .  We are thrilled they are joining us and look forward to all their fabulous creations!

My card is created for my son John.  I am so excited for him because he just closed on his first home.  I used the Honey Bee Stamps Threshold Dies to cut out the door.  I used black and two shade of grey for the panels on the door.  Silver foil was used for the mail slot and door handle.  I also cut the wreath from the same dies.  The snowman, rabbit and birds are from Honey Bee Stamps Snow Buddies stamps set.  I used Copic Markers to color these items.  The matching dies are used to cut out all the items.  John lives in Indiana so, this winter scene is perfect for January!
