DDC and CC for Mother's Day

Joan (joan ervin) is this week's hostess for the Doubledog Dare Challenge. She dared us to make a Mother's Day card and include a piece of clothing. Not only does this fashionable gal wear a beautiful dress, but I stamped the image again and cut out RED gloves to add to her outfit. (Please feel free to join us in this challenge.......put DDC in your keyword.)

This card will go to my Mom. She is a girl from the 20's. How perfect is that? And she is truly as beautiful today as she was then. I combined the colors from the CC by adding olive to the flower center, punched leaves, the stems and leaves of the flowers in the collage, and even eye shadow (if you look closely!) My mother loves these colors too. I think she will really like it.

Color Challenge!

I love Crystal Effects! I had to take this photo on an angle so you could see the shine on the raised olive. What a fabulous color combination today with RED (my FAVORITE!), black, cream, and olive! I had fun using a variety of punches, my Cuttlebug, and some great ribbon. I hope you like it.

I worked in the yard yesterday, sat in the sun and read, (finished Eclipse), and was in and out of the hot tub. The pool is uncovered now.......the awful color is due to IRON. DH is very unhappy. Hopefully, the BIG DOUGH spent on specific chemicals will work. Talked to Mom this morning, and she is getting her list ready. We leave for vacation on May 10th, Mother's Day, for two weeks. My birthday is always spent in NH, and DH gives me money to play with. YAY! Even retired people like to go on vacation!! I think it's time I made my list too....which stamps shall I take? Which paper? Embellishments? Inks? Punches? Will I have room for clothes?????

Have a fun and creative day, my friends. Hugs.
