Cheery Lynn Minnesota for The Paper Players

Hi everyone!

I'm excited today as it's my turn to host The Paper Players challenge this week. It's a tic-tac-toe, and I had SO much fun filling in the squares:

I chose to go straight down on the right...masculine, red, and die cut.

My friends and I have been having LOTS of fun making state cards, I thought I would share one today. I made a ton of them, so you will be seeing quite a few in the future! 

For this one I used the Minnesota die from Cheery Lynn, and the fish from Amy Design. It's no secret Minnesota is known for it's beautiful lakes and excellent fishing. I put a heart near where we live.... we LOVE living in Minnesota!

The sentiment is from Technique Tuesday, so fitting for my son, who now lives out of state.

I hope you will join us!

You can check out the rest of the design team here:

How cool! I love cards that are so personal as this one is. I love the sentiment too, though I tell my kids "home is wherever you mother lives" lol!

Patti said...

Oh wow this is so super cool!! I love Minnesota : ) My husband was born and raised there. About 1.5 years ago we moved from northwestern WI (Hayward area) to the Black Hills of SD. We love it here but we surely do miss the beautiful lakes in WI and MN!!

This would be THE best card for any fisherman - male or female!!

Such a fun card! I love the die cuts - and you have one for your state! Very cool! I love Minnesota too - even though I only drove across it once - reminded me of home (upstate NY) - lots of woods, green trees and water!
