Fight Like A Girl The Paper Players Challenge PP694

 June 16, 2024

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players.

The lovely LeAnne is our hostess this week and she has a Clean and Simple Challenge for all of us!  Sympathy or Encouragement is the theme this week.  Remember to keep it CAS.  We all need these cards in our stash.  So let's get creative and have fun! 



A few weeks ago, I got the bad news that my dear friend was diagnosed with breast cancer.  I am trying to send her a card every few weeks to keep her spirits up during chemo.  She is a beach girl and I thought this little bra/beach top would make her smile.  I added a strip of black and white stripes that I found in my stash.  I added a fun black circle cut with scalloped edges.  The bra top was made with the My Favorite Things Support Hope Die-namics.  It is retired, but I will keep it in my stash because it seems I have to pull it out to make a card too often.  I used scraps of pink,  pink polka dots and white to create the bra.  I added a little pink bow and a pearl. 


  1. Please provide a direct link to the post featuring your challenge entry.
  2. Please link your card to no more than four challenges, TOTAL, including ours
  3. Please be considerate of our requests; entries that do not follow any of these rules will be deleted without notification.

When Life Gives You Lemons The Paper Players Challenge PP693

June 9, 2024 

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players.

The Amazing Joanne is our hostess this week and she has a gorgeous color challenge for all of us!  I do love this combo so much and we can't wait to see what you create.  Have fun! 




My card is created using the Stampin Up Designer Series Paper Mediterranean Blooms.  I just love this gorgeous set of papers.  I used the frame die I found in my stash and cut Night of Navy backgrounds for the panels.  The lemons and leaves were fussy cut from one of the pieces of dsp.  The sentiment is from W Plus 9-Southern Sentiment.  The inside sentiment says:"Put them in Sweet Tea"!      Of course, every Southern card needs a few pearls, too!
