Color Throwdown & Paper Players

Dean & I had an evening to relax (after he buzzed in the city to show is parents how to use the remote control once again) a week...and what a fun evening to sit, chat, create a card for a dear friend and watch Dean flip from American Pickers, Super Bowl...and whatever else he chose! and I played and shuffled paper around, shuffled a little more...but it did come together! Oh what fun to play...and I get to do this again tonight, the girls are coming over and we are working on whatever we choose, nothing to teach, just sharing my toys and lovin' it! I followed two challenges as I was creating my card ~ CTD #117 was fabulous and I couldn't wait to play

and this absolutely perfect sketch was from the Paper Players...and as I was putting my post together, I realized that I was toooooooo late to submit to the PP#80 ~ oh well, I still had a blast :-) Thanks girls for this wonderful challenges that you throw our way! I love joining in the fun

 here is my dear friends birthday card ~ she is my tea partner, knitting partner, mani & pedi partner...well, she's just the best!
