A touch of red

Good morning my crafty friends! How are you doing? I hope everything is well with you. Can you believe that January is gone already? I don't know about you, but for me this month just flew by. But I have to say that I am very excited that February is finally here. It means I'll get to see my little baby soon. Can't wait! She's due in the middle of February. :)

But don't worry, I won't start babbling about babies in this post. ;) I'm here to tell you about the new challenge that just started at The Greeting Farm blog. This month we'd like to see a touch of red on you your card, along with any of the cute images from TGF. Valentine's day is just around the corner, so you can make a Valentine's card if you want to, but it's not a must. Just be sure to use some red on your creation, that's all. :)

I had a play with two sets that were part of January release - Dollie with letter and Magical friends

Ok, so you can see Dollie, but you are probably wondering where did I use the Magical friends set, right? See the heart background behind Dollie? The heart is a stamp that comes with the Magical Friends set and I just randomly stamped it around on the white cardstock to create the background. :) Other heart papers came from my stash and so did the glittery dots I used in the corners. The heart ribbon is from Crafty ribbons.

I coloured Dollie with Promarkers and Faber Castell pencils. The embossed hearts I used on the card were hand cut from a white cardstock, inked a bit with TH distress ink and embossed with Cuttlebug's embossing folder.

I hope you'll come play with us! :)
Have a wonderful day! xx

  1. Preslatka je, jako puno truda uloženo i ispala je baš super!!
    ♥Pozdrav Valentina♥

  2. A real work of art Cebelica, the image is so sweet, but it's all that layering and bright welcoming colours that really appeal and the little hints of grey so much softer than black.

    Take care and rest,

  5. Beautiful design with a touch of red. Really like the red and grey color combo, the grey adds a soft touch and makes the red stand out. Of course, Dollie is super sweet here!
