There She Goes, MUSE and The Paper Players {Smile, live in the moment}


Yeah!! Stamping tonight and I played along with the Paper Players, There She Goes and MUSE. I wanted to create something clean and simple and I LOVED the colours at the Paper Players. Plus the challenge at There She Goes is Moving On which I can relate to. Myself and other teachers will be "moving on" to new schools and classrooms at the end of June and I know how stressful that can be...so I thought, "living in the moment" was probably a good way to approach moving...it can be pretty overwhelming.

Here is the MUSE inspiration card by Therese Calvird, I love it!!

Oh my goodness, it is adorable!! Love those sweet "ellies"!!! So I went to work and had to break into my newest stamps from There She Goes. I love the "Oh Snap" set by Torico. I have a confession to make, the washi tape went on to my card to cover my inky thumbprint, I was so upset when I got my inky mess on this CAS card! But Washi tape saved the day! Thank goodness!!

{Supplies Used}
Inks: Gumball Green, Midnight Muse and Raspberry Ripple 
Papers: White, Kraft
Extras: Bella BLVD Washi, Baker's Twine, Embossing Folder (Stripes SU!) and Big Shot, Corner Rounder
