It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players! This week, the lovely Laurie is hosting a color challenge for us. What a fun trio of colors she has selected: Smoky Slate, Melon Mambo, Basic Gray.
When a new catalog comes out, such as Stampin’ Up!’s recent Occasions Catalog, I like to mix some of the newly released items with older items. For this card, I paired new framelits with a stamp set from the Annual Catalog. I hope you enjoy today’s card.
There is a story behind today’s card. I have a very good friend who has experienced more than her share of tragedies over the past four weeks. It began when she injured her leg, requiring time off work. Then sadly, she had to help her Boxer (my Lexi’s littermate) cross over the Rainbow Bridge. Two weeks later, her sister passed away. During the time she was away making arrangements, another of of her Boxers sadly crossed the Bridge, and her aunt was placed into hospice care.
I feel that at this time she needs to know that I am here for her, by her side, helping her weather the storm of bad, and sad, luck which has besieged her. She loves the cards I create, and has kept every single one I have given her. I created this card for her.

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
In combining the old and the new, I created the sentiment panel using the Friendly Conversation stamp set from the Annual Catalog. Words were highlighted with Melon Mambo ink, and a touch of sparkle was added with rhinestones.
