A Quick Hello

Have you ever come upon a sketch that you just HAD to do?  Every day I check lots of sketch challenges and I like most that I see.  But occasionally, I come across one that becomes a MUST DO before the week is out no matter how busy I am.   I've had a very busy week last week with two Hostess Clubs meeting, a workshop on Sunday and getting various post ready for upcoming blog hops.

On Sunday I saw the sketch for Paper Players challenge and I just couldn't quit thinking about what I wanted to do with it!  I have so many other things I need to be doing, like doing the wash and prepping for an upcoming trip, getting ready for my other two Hostess Clubs that meet this week, but I stopped everything for about 30 minutes last night to create a card for the Paper Players sketch.

This is a very easy and simple card and probably total time to put together took about 10 minutes.  It was hem-hawing around about WHICH stamp to use and WHAT color to stamp that took the longest.

See!  Very SIMPLE but I think it turned out nice.   I used the Lagoon (Z1850) and Slate (Z1817) Washi Tapes from Close To My Heart.  Next, I wrapped around some Slate Bakers Twine from the Baker's Twine Neutral Assortment (Z1701).  My 'hello' stamp is from the set that is included in the Artiste Cricut Collection - so of course I cut the image out before stamping.   Ink color - Slate Pigment Ink.   My green Aqua Dots (Z1853)  are the final touch.

Here is the Paper Player's Sketch:

I'm off to Asheville, North Carolina later this week but have a couple of post scheduled so be sure to come back and see what I have to share!   Thanks for stopping by today!


  1. Gina, the bubble is right on trend. You managed to keep this clean and simple and yet so full of interest. Love it. So glad you joined the Paper Players this week

  2. I really love clean and simple (and quick) cards and yours perfectly reflects the sketch. It's so cute!
