Paper Pretties Monday

Good Morning!  Welcome to Paper Pretties Monday.  While you can visit me here and leave kind words, I'll be returning to work after being off the last 5 days, only to listen to mean people yell at me because they messed up their account.  * sigh *  I really need a new job.  One closer to home and working with numbers again.  Numbers don't argue or yell.

Enough about my Monday blues.  Let's talk about something fun - like this week's challenge at Paper Pretties.  This week is an easy one, Use Ribbon.  That's darn near every card we make, right?  So here's my card featuring a sweet little image by Fawn.  This is Me & My Teddy....

Remember what I said about not being able to use Brights very well.  I think, overall, the card is cute but might have turned out a bit nicer in a different arrangement of colors.  But I am challenging myself to play along with Just Us Girls (use rainbow colors) and a fun sketch from Sassy Studio Designs.  Be kind, but honest when leaving me comments.  I'm certainly not expecting Chic of the Week or winning any prizes.  But you can if you play along with us at Paper Pretties challenge and you're allowed to combine other challenges, too.

Enjoy your Monday.

The design and colors are actually okay for me. Playing with them sometimes won’t really hurt. You won’t even notice that you’re already creating a gorgeous piece of art. Well, if you’ll give a kid this, then he or she will definitely like it because of how bright and delightful it looks. You intend to give this to kids, right?
