last week as guest designer at The Paper Players (pp97)

I can't believe my time as guest designer at The Paper Players has come to an end already. It was such a fast, but FUN three months! I really enjoyed the opportunity to be able to help inspire each week with my card creations and to offer up words of encouragement to others.

I want to say thank you to all of the ladies at The Paper Players who so graciously accepted me on their team and encouraged me with their sweet comments! Thank you Ann, Anne Marie, Jaydee, LeAnne, Lesley, Nance and my fellow three-month guest designer Jenn! You all are amazing and talented papercrafting artists and it has been an honor and a privilege to work with you!

One last sketch to play with this week for me as I finish up my role as guest designer. I definitely plan to keep playing along, though, so I will be back for more inspiration! This week's hostess is the super sweet LeAnne and she has come up with a fun sketch to play along with!
I ended up leaving the bottom rectangle in the sketch plain white. I kept going back and forth on whether or not I wanted to add a layer behind the white circle, but in the end the simple look won out. You can't see it (or smell it) in the picture, but I used the Cherry Embossing Powder for the cherries It smells great in person!

I love your interpretation of the sketch by leaving the bottom panel plain. I'm sure those cherries smell wonderful! How quickly does time fly? It's been great seeing your cards every week!

Heidi, it has been wonderful having you as a guest designer for the last three months and this card is a great way to end off with. I love that you left the bottom panel white. The baker's twine and the little tags are perfect. Now, if only I could smell that yummylicious embossing powder!
Hugs

I only wish my computer screen was scratch and sniff! This is adorable--love those embossed cherries. All your little details are always fabulous--like the twine + tags and the two-color sentiment. It's been wonderful working with you! Thank you for sharing your immense talent with us at The Paper Players! ((hugs))
