Paper Players Challenge Week #1

I am so excited to tell you that today is our first challenge at Always Playing with Paper. Each Sunday there will be a new challenge. Then on Saturday the winners will be announced. The winner will receive a “Headliner” badge to proudly display on their BLOG. There will also be 3 honorable mention picks that will receive a “Cut Above” badge to proudly display on their BLOG.

The first week of each month will be a Theme challenge. This month’s challenge is to create a Masculine or Father’s Day project

I created this card for my Father-In-Law. Those of you who visit here know that Pop is up in heaven, but the boys like to give him a card anyway. We put the card in a plastic envelope and place it on his grave site. Brandon (my little one) says that way he can share it with his friends at the cemetery.

The other Paper Players have created absolutely fantastic cards. Make sure you go visit and leave some love.
