No Pink, No Red!!!???

Tonight, my card is in non-traditional colors!


The challenge at Frosted Designs is to make a Valentine's project, but to use no red, and no pink. Yippee! What a fabulous excuse to drag out the old standby - black and white! The white is from my stash, the black is DCWV, and the beautiful teal is Stampin' Up's Bermuda Bay. The print is a FREE downloadable DP from TAC. Be sure to check out their free downloads!



I am also entering this card at:


Scrap, Stamp, and Doodle - (no red)

Charisma Cards - (Love...)
Creative Belli Challenge - (use ribbon(s)



Hope you like it, and that you are having a great weekend. It's snowed here all day off and on. No 'real' accumulation yet (we probably have an inch or so), but it's supposed to continue for several hours, so who knows what morning will bring!



A very special young woman in our community passed away this week.
She was an incredible mother to 7 children. I worked with her, and know that she will be
greatly missed by all who knew her.

Life is short - hug your kids, tell your DH or significant other just how special they are to you, and cherish each precious day.

Hugs,

Patti J.

  6. How pretty - love the color comibnation - goes nicely together and still has the feel of Valentine. I hadn't heard about the gal that passed yet - we (work) had given her kids a basket for the holidays. How sad.
