Today really looked like Spring here--blue sky & sunshine with temperature in the 60s. Hopefully my card will bring a touch of Spring to those of you still in Winter's grip. Pink is my favorite color, so I was delighted to see the Dynamic Duos challenge to use soft pink & soft gray. I pulled out an old favorite ChatterBox double-sided paper. I have 2 full sheets & part of another one, so time to let a bit more of it go to someone else--LOL! This is my first card using some of the flowers in the beautiful pink box of pink goodies I won from Mrs. A. I used MFT dies Dizzy Doily & Contempo Cage & Penny Black's leaves. The sentiment is by Stampendous stamped in Memento Gray Flannel. Hard to tell, but the birdcage has a beautiful sheen from my Wink of Stella pen. I used to think you shouldn't combine pearls & gems, but then I saw people doing it & why not?! Love using these soft pink pearls along with the gray gems--gonna need to keep them on hand. The pink & gray papers were snippets, so I'll also enter Pixies Snippets Playground.
Two more days to get ready to bring home our puppy. We've been re-reading our book on Standard Schnauzers & reminding ourselves of things we need to do. I'm so glad I won't be working for a few weeks so I can really focus on giving him a good start in our family. Thanks for all the well-wishes. You'll be seeing a lot of pictures & hopefully he'll have a name!
