WOJ...Pink & Brown and Just Magnolia's ...Friends Challenge!




Hello Everyone,

I hope you all have had a beautiful and relaxing weekend! Although the weather in my area is warm and full of sunshine, there hasn't been any room for resting and relaxation. We finished laying floor tiles in our newly converted den today and I am bushed! Laying the tiles wasn't hard at all.....clearing the room of furnishings was the hard part. I am soooooooo tired right now. Although tired, I did make a little time to finish the challenge cards I've been working on since Friday for WOJ and Just Magnolia.



This weeks WOJ #43 Challenge is to make a card featuring the colors Pink & Brown. My card features Charlotte Riding Reindeer . I'm not feeling all that great with my color choices...too much brown. *sigh* After a good nights rest, I might make another card for this challenge.

Card Details...............

Just Magnolia Challenge #18



Over at Just Magnolia, the challenge is all about "friends"!

I won this image last week from Donalda 's blog candy ( Enjoying The Journey). I received Edwin this past Friday and could not wait for my chance to ink him up! Initially I wasn't sure of what to do with Edwin, but I need to get out of my comfort zone and start making more cards for the opposite sex.



I've had this design paper by Inque Boutique (Out Of This World) laying around forever and I can't believe that I waited so long to use it. This design paper is so perfect for a young boy or male teen...I love it! The sentiment is a digi from The Cutting Cafe (I have faith in you). This pkg. of circular sentiments is "FREE" until the end of this month! Click here for information regarding this set of sentiments.

Beautiful cards, Risa! In my opinion ;) I don't think that the first card has too much brown, it's a wonderful combo! I love the way you placed the sentiment!
The second card is too cute! I love lil Edwin! The card is perfect for a boy!
