The Color Red. And Hearts.

Pin It

Happy TGiF!

Today's card project was created for the Caardvarks "Red Heart" challenge to use the color red. And hearts. For all the challenging deets, clicky HERE.

This card also qualifies for this week's Stamp Simply card challenge ... to use the color red. And hearts. For the 4-1-1 on the Stamp Simply challenge, clicky HERE.

Because I used digital paper on this card, the project qualifies for the Fab 'n' Funky Challenge #8, to use a digital image or sentiment. For all the digi-deets, clicky HERE.

My card uses stamps from two drastically different Stampin' Up sets, but I think they look pretty neat together. The patterned paper is a digital file and I created a beaded stickpin to attach to my yummy satin ribbon.

For the rest of the lovely product info, check out the supply list, below.

Soooooooo, yesterday afternoon I was hangin' out with Sheila when Reid-the-Wild-Child came home from school.

"Guess what?!?" Reid asked us.

"What?" we answered.

"I learned how to make babies today in school!"

Sheila flipped. I haven't seen her face go so red since ... at least Monday!

"What? What?!? I'm callin' that school this instant and readin' them the riot act. How dare they?!?"

"So, Reid, tell me, what did you learn about makin' babies?" I asked.

"Oh, it's easy, Aunty: all you do is drop the 'y' and add 'i e s.'" he replied.

Oh, sure, we knew that.

Thanks so much for stopping by today ... have a great weekend!
