Pink, Purple, Gray, Get Well...


Wow! Two days of sunshine and no snow in a row! It was supposed to warm up a bit today, but the wind is still blowing pretty hard, so it does not feel warmer! I hope that you are all enjoying your day. I had intended to get out to run a couple of errands, but have not made it yet.


I took a few minutes a while ago to make a quick card. Those of you that know our Stef (a.k.a. Glitterbabe, the lampshade boogie queen), will certainly recognize her beautiful flower image here! I'm sure Stef meant this to be a vivid yellow Jonquil, but I took the liberty of coloring it pink to fit a challenge I was working on! Check out Stef's Etsy site, where you can find her wonderful images!


So, Helen Dooley has started up a new challenge site. It's called For Fun Challenges, and that's exactly what she is stressing - 'for fun'! Well, as I don't believe we girls can ever have enough fun, I'm going to give it a try! The challenge this week is to use Pink, Purple, and Gray. It's not very visible in the photo, but I have stippled around the flower in gray, and the dots on the ribbon are a silvery gray. Why don't you run over to Helen's very first challenge and give her a nice warm welcoming entry?!!?


I am also entering this card at Creative Card Crew. The challenge this week at CCC is "Get Well". You have GOT to run over and check out what their design team has posted this week - they are wonderful! There is even a Hangover Kit!!! lolololol..... I'm too old for that, but some of you youngsters might enjoy it! I may have to make up a few of those for 'just in case' occasions!
The dotted background, sentiment, and flourish are all TAC Stamps.
Have a great Wednesday, and I hope to be back tomorrow with something new. Take Care!

Beautiful card, Patti! I love the snow! We still have about 5-6 inches on the ground. Hubby is getting "cabin fever" so he made plans for us to go out for breakfast tomorrow. It hasn't really bothered me. I like having an excuse to stay in and craft....not that I need one!
Hope you're staying warm!
