Happy Tuesday, peeps! As I write this (on Monday afternoon!), our family is basking in the Eagles' win and looking forward to the Super Bowl....and I can't believe I am actually saying that! Growing up, my high school did not have a football team, (although they now do), so my high school memories only include going to basketball games. Hence, football doesn't really thrill me; I still struggle with understanding the plays and scoring, despite John explaining it over and over. But I do enjoy my family getting together and having fun, so I am all for that!
Okay, on to our Stamp Ink Paper challenge this week. I must confess that these colors were a struggle for me, so I apologize if my card is less than stellar! Sometimes you just have to let it go, right? So here we go:
Of course, I normally try to steer away from the obvious, which would be hearts and valentines, but I went with the flow today and created a Valentine card using some pretty My Mind's Eye Honey Cake 6x6 papers as my starting point:
I used my favorite layout, using both sides of the paper, then added a tag with some elements in the challenge colors. I used a SU Calypso Coral Blend in the lighter shade to color in the "you" at the bottom of the tag, then cut the diecut from Calypso Coral cardstock. A glimmer heart, Raspberry Ripple embellishment and stitched ribbon, and a little snippet of doily finished it all off:
I hope you'll pop into the SIP blog and check out what the other designers did....there were some fabulous creations that will inspire you a lot more than mine, LOL!
The weekend before the big game, the family went to Dick's Sporting Goods and Cassidy had a chance to sign a big game board....I am sure her signature helped the Eagles win, don't you think?!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
