Red & Pink

What a great weekend I've had!  Started well on Friday when I met up with a friend I used to work with and haven't seen in 5 years.  We had a great day and pretty much camped out in the John Lewis cafe.  Then on Sat night it was round to a neighbours for some lovely food at a Burns Supper. Always a good laugh when the neighbours get together so we weren't in bed till late. Then Sunday was a bit quieter, but really good too as I managed to sell a whole load of crafty bits in my ongoing attempt to tidy our loft. Yesterday it was back to domestic duties and cards ahead of the post below.  hope you all had a good weekend too.

So, today sees the start of a new challenge over at an Oldie But A Goodie, & this time it's Laurie who has chosen our theme of

Red & Pink

Obviously with Valentines day just around the corner this challenge is perfect for your Lovey Dovey cards, but you don't have to make a Valentine card just make something with plenty red & pink and remember to use an item older than 6 months on your card.  This time it was an old doily & old gems for me.


The sponsor this time around is one of my favourites as you all know, it's Bugaboo, & they are offering the lucky winner 7 digi's of their choice from their online store.



My card uses the image Valentine Jar available here.
