Blogger's Challenge - Week #28- Pink & Brown

Wow, I have finally recovered from the holidays and am getting back into the swing of things. I feel like I lost a month in December! I don't know where the month went. So I know that I have missed a couple of challenges. My New Year's resolution is to post twice a week. Hopefully I can keep that goal.

This week's challenge is to make a card using Brown & Pink cardstock. I finished this card last week and sent it in for the new Catalog swap and it just happens to be brown & pink! So here is my card for this week. I used the Happy Heart Day stamp set, close to cocoa and pretty in pink cardstock and the close to cocoa designer paper.

The flowers have glitter on them but it is hard to see in the picture. I used watercolor crayons to color the images.

So today - I had my new catalog open house and was playing with the new set Happy Heart Day. Several people stopped by to pick up the new catalog! Kim stopped by with her two daughters; Julianna (4) and Hailey (2).
Julianna is a natural. She picked up the stamps and showed me how to make a card! She had obviously done this at pre-school. I told her that today's challenge is to make a card using pink & brown. This is Julianna's card.


Julianna used crayons to color her images. She loves the Happy Heart Day set!


Below is the card that her mother Kim, made. I am sorry that this came out a little fuzzy.


Have a great weekend!
