Pals Paper Arts challenge #311, Small things

It's my week! How about that. I love serving on the PPA team more then I can tell you. It's fun, it makes me want to do my best work and it pushes me to try new things.   So, here are the colors I have selected for my week.

It is so hard to choose a favorite new set/bundle in this years annual catalog! I have never seen such a fabulous catalog in all the years I have been buying Stampin Up.   I did think Swirly Birds was my fav, but this jar set is so neat. So many different things you can do with a killer stamp set and die set.

Then there are the flourish sets, but that is another day and card. LOL

This is the medium sized jar in the stamp set, there is a little stamp for the water or whatever you want in there, but I enjoy watercoloring my own in.  I used the Shimmer White paper as you can do some watercoloring on it without problems.

Since I always seem to leave a mess behind, I have left one on the bottom of the card. Some leaves and flowers just fell out.  And I love the bow on the jar.

The sentiment is from Layering Love. It's so nice to have a set with large and sometimes more meaning ful sentiments.  I used the new Layering Ovals that I just got.  I LOVE these layering shape sets, all of them.  I think this card would make a great new baby shower card, what about you?

Not that anyone in my family is having any more babies anytime soon.  I have 6 grandsons, 3 are old enough they could have kids, but they do not.

I do hope you have enjoyed and I have left behind a bit of inspiration.  If so that makes me very happy because so many blogs have given me plenty.

Your card showcased these colors so beautifully. I love the natural look of the water in the jar. This will bring a smile to the recipient for sure.
