Baby steps by Stampin Up and me

And a beautiful busy Sunday it was.

the other day I received such a sweet little note from Anne Marie . This lady has one incredible beautiful blog with amazing cards, called: 'Stampin' Anne'. She is also a member of the Paper Players Challenge website. The card that I added for their Color Challenge #42 was chosen as a 'Cut Above'. So SO cool! What an honour! Seriously.. These ladies have a talent that goes above and beyond.

Each of the design team, picks their favorite card and Lesly picked mine. Oh how fun! She and her lovely team members had already given me so many sweet comments on this card last week, which I so treasured, that I felt double blessed hearing from them again. This is what Lesly Croghan from 'Always playing with paper' and the PP - team wrote to me:

  • 'As I looked through the selection of wonderful cards created, I kept being drawn to the hilarious and sweet card created by Pauline at the Pursuit of Stampiness. I really giggled when I first clicked on her card, such a clever use of stamps, ingenious really!! Those colours are fun and bright and I feel that she captured the 'mood' of them perfectly. I also loved how she used the flower brads... they look perfect on this card. Congratulations on being a Cut Above this week Pauline'.

'Thanks so much Lesly, for making me smile and for highlighting those details of my card'. & Yes!I agree with you on the 'giggle' factor of my card. So fun eh! I love the ants.. Please visit her blog.. she has such a huge talent in creating cards.

Well, today I had some time to play again for their next Paper Players Clean and simple challenge #43. & in my humble opinion it turned out so SO cute.. I love it. They challenged us to keep it simple.. Now for some reason, that was a hard one for me. So I sneaked in a couple of cute 'simple' additions. I love how one of the elephants is carrying a little tag that says 'peanut', From what I understand of elephants is that they love peanuts and from what I understand from Canadians and Americans is that they call their little babies sometimes little 'peanuts'.. So I felt so 'with it' when I came up with that idea :) Oohh.. I love having a creative hobby.. Sorry I just get so tickled about this kind of stuff.

Well.. Grandma Carolyn is here and I want to spend some quality time with her :) No fun having a computer on my lab while we are chatting.

Have a good good sleep ladies!

Inky hugs, Pauline

  6. Pauline, ANOTHER amazing card this week. I love what you did with the elephant ears. I would never have thought to do that, yet it gives the image dimension. The addition of the "peanut" tag... perfect! I love all the detail, humor - and love, that you put into your card.
