Two For Monday!



Hello Everyone,

I had planned to post my cards earlier in the day and would have but I had to stop everything and prepare dinner. One thing about getting away from home is returning to it! I know it sounds kind of funny but there is nothing like sleeping in your own bed.
The weather in the UP was very windy and very cold! Thank goodness I wore my winter coat or I would have froze...seriously! We did have a little scare while on the road though. Due to the high winds, everyone had to drive very slowly across the Mackinac Bridge. It seemed like we were on that bridge forever and I was so glad to see dry land again! I'm all done with any thoughts of crossing the "Mighty Mack" until later next year.

My first card is for two challenges....Roses On Paper and Whiff Of Joy. This weeks Roses On Paper Challenge is to make a Christmas Card and the Whiff Of Joy Challenge is to make a card using the colors red and cream plus one additional color. Speaking of Roses On Paper, I didn't make the GDT this round. I feel little "blue" but heck, I'm not the type of girl that stays "blue" for long....... I'll get over it.


Although I am scared to death of mice, I'm not afraid of Henry! Henry's coat is a soft brown combined with the colors red, cream and my choice third color is green.

card details.........stamp and sentiment WOJ, c/s Papertrey Ink, dp Graphic 45, Nestie med. oval and scallop die, Copic Markers, ribbon, button and Sparkles and Prima "Say It In Pearls".

My second is card is just because.........


Tomorrow I have a doctors appointment and the boys have a dentist appointment after school. I already know that after running around town that I'm going to be super tired when I finally settle down.



So.....with Melinda Musing Angel in mind, I'm wishing everyone a perfect day! I'm behind on my blogging duties and need to get caught up. Take care and thank you all so very much for stopping by. I appreciate each and everyone of your comments:)

hugs

Risa

Risa, sorry you did make the design team you wanted but Girl, honestly I don't know how you get everything completed like you do. I am going to rub in a bit it is still 71 degrees here in Alabama. It was higher than that a little bit age.
I love your cards. Both are beautiful. I REALLY love the soft colors of the Melinda one. You do such beautiful work.
Hugs,
Pam

Oh, Risa, your cards are stunning! I love the way how you attached the ribbon on the first one! And how gentle is the second card!
I can only imagine what it feels like to drive through this bridge... Glad you are home now and don't need to do it for a long time!
