Keep Your Curiosity Fresh for PPA294


“Life delights in LIFE.”

~William Blake

This has been quite a week…I’ve been able to accomplish one card a day for a challenge.  Unheard of, but I’m liking it!  Todays card is for the Pals Paper Arts challenge over at http://palspaperarts.com/   The big bold paper from the Going Places Paper Stack required a big bold sentiment and the Keep Your Curiosity Fresh from the Adventure Awaits Stamp Set fit the bill perfectly…especially for April Fool’s Day!  : ) Have a fun day, Dawn

“Mama exhorted her children at every opportunity to “jump at de sun,” We might not land on the sun, but at least we would get off the ground.”

~Zora Neale Hurston

We are going places with this gorgeous new marbled paper from the “Going Places Designer Series Paper Stack!”  I just love this rich color explosion…it reminds me of “jumping at de sun!”  This PPA288 design from the Pals Paper Arts was perfect for showing it off.


This is the card I came up with using that design.  The sentiment is cropped from the new Botanicals For You “just for you” stamp.   Before inking the stamp, I covered the word “just” with masking tape.  After inking it, I removed the tape before stamping the sentiment onto Very Vanilla cardstock.  The sentiment inside the card is from the same stamp set.  I chose it because so many people have been SO awesome to pray for my friend Barbara who is battling cancer.  One of our dear blogging friends, Nancy Farrell in New York, even made Barbara a prayer shawl.  So much love to someone many of you don’t even know.  I can never thank you enough.
