Just playin' around...

So last night we had a quiet night here and home and we watch the Phillies game and I scrapped. It's so great having an area where we can all hang out. Henry sat with me for a while, too. He played with his guys. They love to sky dive from my drink holder into my adhesive basket and then hang from the ledge. See! I knew that my scrappy stuff would always serve more than one purpose!!! ;) ;) ;)

First up is a card for the Crate Color Challenge. I also threw in my doily stamp with some white pigment ink and embossed the flower.




I didn't have much mojo of my own and I saw on Facebook that MME had their challenge up so I created this layout from the sketch. Our Maxer LOVES to jump when you play catch with him. Well, who needs a tennis ball when you have snow? He will catch snow balls for HOURS!

Again, some white pigment ink with the doily stamp. Best investment EVER! And some Stella MME patterned papers. I loooove the colors. Esp that pop of they yellow/orange.

Lovely projects! I have a question for you: did you use a border punch to create the frame on the card? I think I saw one from EK Success that looked like that? If you did, I want it!!!! :D
