Hello Paper - I Missed You

I was on vacation last week - I was in Orlando, Florida - and it was so nice and warm - even got a little sun - but alas Wisconsin is not that warm.  I am able to have the back patio door open today - the sun is shining in so able to keep the door open for some fresh air in the house.

I missed my paper so it was good to play again.  Today I made some cards for my Oldie Moldie Monday cards but also came up with this card to do a couple challenges.

The first challenge is from The Paper Players to use something "recycled in your project".  Actually all the paper is recycled on this card.  The paper is a nice cardstock used in our commencement programs - I went through after the ceremony and picked up a bunch of them - I would have liked to pick up more - but you can only do so much in a limited amount of time.  The chevron paper is done using a Studio Calico mask and Mr. Huey mists.  The flower was cut with the Silhouette.  The top layer of the flower was pop dotted to add some dimension.

The second challenge was from CAS-UAL Friday to use chevrons and flowers.

I don't know if you saw it last week but I was Moxie Fabber of the Week.  How special to be chosen for that.

Everyone enjoy the remainder of your Sunday.
