Blogger's Challenge #118: Designer Series Paper

Good day!

I have TWO cards to share for this challenge! Our challenge was to feature DSP or Designer Series Paper. I just LOVE our DSP from Stampin' Up! The first card uses Cottage Wall. It's been a really popular choice for everyone! Don't you just love these colors? I don't wear purple but I love to stamp with it!


My second card features Nouveau Chic. How about these colors together? I just LOVE Basic Gray! Then match it up with Basic Black, Sage Shadow, and Apricot Appeal and what a winning combination!



I'm at a retreat for church worker wives. I am a church worker but I'm married to a pastor so this should be a good event! I want to thank the First English, Eldred MN and the Our Savior's, Crookston congregations for paying my way to make it possible for me to attend!

Have a GREAT day!
