Red and White All Over!

Morning Folks! Hope you're all well this morning! I want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone for their lovely comments, thanks for taking the time to write something - I love reading your thoguhts on my cards.

There is a lot to be said for postive thinking you know (that and friends, family and work colleagues who put up with you whatever your mood!). I'm in a much better frame of mind now than I was on Monday, but nothings really knee still hurts, I'm currently waiting to hear when my scan and steroid infusion will be.....but I've decided to smile! I was truely down in the dumps on Monday (and the weekend as my lovely boyfriend will know!!), but I think I got fed up of being in a bad mood for no good reason!!

Anyway, now that you know I'm sitting her smiling rather than frowning (hopefully saving myself from future wrinkles!!) I want to share a new card with you..........

I made this for the Cupcake Craft Challenge this week....can you guess the theme?? Yes, they wanted to see projects with pink elephants on.....sorry lame joke....they wanted to see projects featuring the colour combo red and white. The DT examples are all gorgeous and highlight just how many different shades of red there are! Click here to take a peek. I love red and white together, especailly when it involves spots, it always makes me smile.

So, I dug through my paper stash and found two different backing papers - one plain, one spotty! I also decided to use another Bee Crafty digi image that I bought earlier this week, colouring it in red (with a little yellow hair). The sentiment is created on my computer, using the shape option in Word. I then embellished with some fab dotty ribbon and some punched flowers....oh and a little glitter glue! I'm happy with this card - its lovely and bright and it makes me smile....always a good thing in a card!

I'm going to keep up the smiling...even the bird's nest that has taken the place of my hair this morning won't stop me (I look like I've been pulled through a hedge backwards as my dear mother would say!). I hope you all have a good day, whatever you may be doing!

Thanks for stopping by.
