GD @ Playing in Paradise

Great news......I am the Guest Designer at Playing in Paradise this week. There are some wonderful samples from this creative DT and I am honored to have my card displayed with theirs. Wait till you see the fun inspirational photo that will get those creative juices flowing.

I am often ask where I get my inspiration from...well this card was inspired by my two youngest grandsons who are ages 4 and 5 1/2. They really are BFF's and the older one always watches out for his younger brother.

This cute image is from Mo Manning. It was colored with Copic markers, alphabet letters are from a Sizzix die cut set, ribbon from Michaels and brads from Paper Wishes. This card is rather CAS for me, but since it was a masculine card, less is sometimes more!

This is the photo that was used to create my card. Doesn't this photo remind you of our fun-filled, carefree childhood days? If you have fond memories of those times, grab some papers and play along, you have until Thursday (noon) to submit your card.

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
