The Paper Players #310 with Nance - Sketch & Darnell's NBUS #7

Two challenges for me today with one card.
Haven't played in The Paper Players  for awhile.


Where she challenges us to use never before used schtuff.  I belong to Stamps of Life Stamp Club and they send a stamp set a month.  I don't often buy cutesy stamps so this gives me some of those that are cute and different.  

Anyway, I have a lot of SOL sets that are NBUS.  I always take this opportunity to join Darnell's challenge.
This didn't turn out as well as I pictured in my head but oh well.  You win some, you lose some....

SOL - Flowerpower 2 fill in PTI & Memento colors.

ColourQ #354

A card for ColourQ 

This is a retirement card for my friend.  Thought these were good masculine colors.
Stamping with my BFF who drove up here today.  She will be here till Saturday.  Tomorrow we plan to go to Lake Tapps for a relaxing day in the sun, then Music in the Park at 6:30.  Supposed to be in the lower 80's. Then Friday, we are going up to Mt. Vernon for a retirement party for one of the guys
I used to work with.  It's about a 2 hour drive, so will be an all day trip.  And then Saturday we are going to Colleen's Family Reunion Picnic.  I used to go with her years ago when we were just kids, so it is like my second family.
So we have a fun filled 3 days ahead of us.  Not much time for stamping....

Thanks for stopping by.
