Tellen's Pink and Red Challenge

The Challenge for week 2 at Tellen's Place is to make a card using Pink and RED! How cool is that? Tailor made for me, right?

There are even three adorable girls as freebie digital images you can use, or you can use any set you want. I paper pieced this cutie!!

There's a story that goes with this will be for my DH, whose birthday happens to be on Valentine's Day. The story is:

The first time we saw the movie Crocodile Dundee, at one point he was in the bathtub singing, "If I give my heart to you, You'll have none and I'll have two". We began laughing so hard! Since then, every once in a while, one of us will come out with it. This card will make him laugh all over again!!

Join the challenge..........just for fun!

Winter Birthday for the DDC and RESQ#25

This week I am the hostess for the Doubledog Dare Challenge. I DARED the team (and you, if you want to join in with us - add DDC to your keyword) to make a winter birthday card. I kept it simple.... we have enough stress these days! This card is for my aunt in Arizona. She hardly misses the snow and ice of New England, and I feel it my duty to remind her of what she HAD!! Her birthday is Christmas Eve, and I always send her a card like this!!

The base is Going Gray. The next layer is Caramel to match the two deer, then silver mirror paper. The main panel is cut from a card I received last year and couldn't bear to throw away! There is sparkling snow all over the front...hard to get a good photo! This is also for the SC257 today at SCS. The layout is wonderful, and oh boy! yesterday I bought the EK Success Fleur-de-lis punch, so I just had to use it.

Also for the SC with a slight variation, I made this card for the RESQ#25 challenge. The directions were to use: polka dots, pink, something round, and food. I think this matching paper is DCWV, but I can't be sure because there is no printing on it, and I've had it for ages. The ice cream is from Stamps Happen, and an Amuse sentiment plus some punches and dimensionals finish it up. I love this saying.....but Carol (Bobbiesgirl) ends it with.....on the good dishes. WOW! That's it. I'm done for the day!!
