Red & Pink @ Oldie But Goodie

Good Morning Bloggers how are you all today?
 For some unknown reason (while I'm typing this) I feel quite chipper!! I'm sure it won't last lol

It's time for a new challenge at


and little ole me is hosting this week.
I've kept it nice a simple for us amateurs and gone with a colour combo so it's

Red & Pink

Shouldn't be hard with all the love and romance in the air this month!!

This is what I came up with
I just love this cool kitty from this weeks sponsor

I coloured him with copics, cut him out and gave him some red Desire Wire whiskers and matted him on some fabby spotty card, the pink grid paper is from last years 'Yours Truly' pad from Echo Park.

Pop over to the main challenge blog for all the details of the challenge and some fabulous inspiration from my lovely teammies
Remember to be in with a chance of winning the prize you must use something that is at least 6 months old on your card and be sure to tell us what it is in your post.

That's all from me today, thank you for stopping by

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

Brilliant card, love the fabulous image and great embellishments.
Glad to hear that you are feeling chipper, obviously spent too much time at the fish shop.
Also you must have a very different 'air' in your area as I certainly have not noticed any love and romance in the 'air' here, thank goodness.
