For the love of paper

Why, hello there my friends!

I hope all is right in your world this morning.
My world just keeps on spinning... even faster now after the earthquake in Chili according to those NASA scientists. No wonder I've been feeling dizzy trying to get everything done, I'm losing time! LOL
Ok, ok... so maybe I can't blame my to-do list craziness on natural disasters but at least I can say I tried. ;)

So I've got a fun Wild Card Wednesday challenge for y'all over at the CA&Friends blog today... and you shouldn't be surprised when you see that it's all about the pattern papers on this one. Yep, I challenge you to use 5 or more different pattern papers on your card this week... insert evil chuckle here. Oh how I loves me some pretty papers! So start diggin' through your paper stash and see how many you can mix and match on your card. :)

I received the brand new Moments sentiment set that I won from Little Paper Shop recently and as soon as I saw this great quote I knew exactly who needed to play on my card today and just what papers would be perfect too. So I printed out cutie H&G Rain and paired her with my new My Mind's Eye papers... doesn't she just look like she is dancing in the rain now? Gotta love that!

Now it's your turn to show me all the fun ways you can think of to play with your paper and I can't wait to see! :)

cardstock- Bazzill and PTI

Didn't I not bring some sunshine your way? hee, hee! You are still thinking of "Rain"! Yeah, but she's all cheery and is totally enjoying it . . . my goodness though, this is a challenge and only 5 papers? Knowing you, you'd probably go with 10! LOL! Have a great day Amy!
