You’re Supremely Awesome

“You’re supremely awesome!” What better way to tell someone than with this adorable card! It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

You're supremely awesomeThis week the amazing Anne Marie is hosting our monthly Clean and Simple challenge. Boy, does she have  a fun theme for us, Bon Appetit! Your goal is to create a Clean and Simple project featuring things you can eat.  Pizza lover that I am, I could not resist this cute image.  I can’t wait to see what YOU create.  I’m sure my mouth will be watering by the time I am done looking at all of the cards in the gallery.  But before you run off to gather your stamps, papers, and inks, remember that when The Paper Players use the term “clean and simple”, we mean cards that:

Have minimal layers and embellishments
Have plenty of open space
Are simple and uncluttered

you're supremely awesome

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

I have always loved to color.  I will never forget the joy I felt as a child when receiving a box of new crayons at Christmas. I will never forget that “new crayon” smell.  The joy continues even today when I play with my Stampin’ Blends. I had so much fun coloring this image from Supremely Awesome. I love how it and the iconic tile floor fit perfectly into the Countryside Corners die cut. A little fussy cutting around the chef is all it takes before he and his pizza pie take center stage.  When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that’s amore…

Nueve’s Notes

Hey, everyone! It’s me, Nueve! I can’t wait to tell you about my new job. I am a puppy-sitter. While Michelle is on vacation in It-lee, she is having me watch her puppy, Jezebel. She looks like Sixxy, only little, and she is not a Princess.

Sixx and JezebelShe is so little, that when I play with her, I have to get down on the ground.

Nueve and JezI also have to be very gentle when I put my leg on her so I don’t knock her over.  I let her think she is stronger than me.  That helps her become bold like me.

Nueve and JezWhen we are done playing, I let her lick me under my chin to show respect. It’s what puppies do.

Nueve and JezJezebel is going to be a show dog like me someday. So I am teaching her everything I know.

nueve and Jez

Playing with puppies and teaching them how to be good dogs is just part of my job.  I am a working dog. I am Good Boy Nueve!

  1. This is supremely adorable, Ann! Love the checkerboard floor and the pop of texture in the background, too. Thanks for totally rocking my challenge!

  2. HAHAHAHA!, Ann! Before Michelle returns from It-lee you should wrap Jezebel’s ear bandaging with aluminum foil and tell her that it improves her hearing reception. Jeeze, I have no idea why I thought of that – must be the heat. Oh, and that card is wonderful – love the red, white and black.

  3. Ann, what a wonderful use of this set and I love how you arranged the sentiments. The bold use of the black and white works so well to keep the eye moving around the card and appreciating each of the elements. Love it!
