Hello, I had to take a shortcut this week for The Paper Players and make a really quick and easy card for Joanne’s Color Challenge! My dad is needing quite a bit of extra care these days, and that is okay, as this is just a hobby and he means the world to me. Rest assured, the design team is sure to inspire you better than I have this week! The Poppy Bloom stencil from Altenew and Oxide Inks never fail me when I am pushed for time! The greeting is from Verve! Isn’t that font beautiful?
I hope you will join us! The talented Design Team is linked up for you below! Take care, Nanc’

Nothing wrong with a CAS card every once in a while. As a matter of fact, this is quite beautiful and I love the soft colors. That font is to die for and is perfect with your design.

I agree with Barbara Nancy – we all need clean and simple cards that are quick to create and honestly this stencil was made for this week’s colours – they blend so beautifully! Your scripted sentiment is the perfect finishing touch – I love it!

Well, for your quick card, it certainly stands out with bold beauty! Just gorgeous, and I am sure taking caring of your dad, although it is a challenge, is a blessing to him!

Nancy, this is CAS in all its beauty!! Sometimes the more simple the better and this is a perfect example of that. Your ink sponging is perfect and I love the sentiment font also. Take care of your Dad and you are in my good thoughts.

You are so sweet Ann! He’s 90 so at times it’s really hard. He’s the reason I retired early as to take care of him the best I can. Hugs!!
