In the Pink ... and Riding Hood Red

Pin It

Okay, so it's "Make Your Dream Come True" Day and "Blame Someone Else" Day. Now, you can pick one to celebrate, OR do both, i.e.: "I could make my dreams come true" if it wasn't for ________ (fill-in-the-blank.)" It's a yin-yang kinda thang ...

Today's Valentines Day card project was created with this very kewl stamp from Stampers Anonymous. I stamped it twice on SU card stock and cut an "x" in one of them ... then doubled 'em up and folded back the flaps on the top image.
The "Paisley" backgrounder was stamped on Pink Pirouette card stock using Hybrid ink.

So easy it's practically illegal!

So, yesterday Sheila asked me to go to the hospital with her to visit her co-worker, Jen.

"May I see Jen, please?" she asked the woman blocking the door.

"We don't allow anyone but relatives to see the patients," replied the woman. "Are you a member of the family?"

"Why-er-why, yes. I'm her sister," Sheila lied said.

"Oh, I'm so glad to meet you," said the woman. "I'm her mother!"

Sheila's cheeks turned as pink as this card ... in fact, those bright pink cheeks were the inspiration for this card! Kewl, huh?!?

Me Likey all your valentines projects. The card kind of looks like a "D" if you don't focus on the details.

Love how you did the ribbon. It took me a while to figure out how you did the ribbon, but I think I got it.

Way too cool!
