Pink Stamper "Cold Days Challenge #2"

Poor Robyn is still cooped up in the cold so here's to day #2 of challenges. This time it was to create something for spring or summer.

The first card I made, I didn't really like how it turned out so I ended up making 2. I'll still post them both, but definitely not loving the bird one.

I decided to do the bird after seeing the picture Robyn posted of the red cardinal on the ice covered tree. Figured I'd let the bird into spring too. :) I ran a piece of white cardstock through my Cuttlebug using the Bird Call embossing folder. I then just sponged on a some green, blue, and red. I used glossy effects on the bird to make it stand out a little bit more.

My 2nd card came out much better IMO. I just used a some scraps for this one. I used Stampin Up set Greenhouse Garden.

Pink Stamper "Cold Days Challenge #1"

Ok so Robyn at just posted a challenge. She is stuck inside due to an ice storm where she lives. Makes me feel a little guilty that I'm cold today and snuggling under a blanket when it's only 63 here.

The challenge was to do something using your favorite color with black. Well, like Robyn, my favorite color is PINK!!! I actually made this project a couple of days ago but it fits perfectly with the challenge. And I got the idea for it from too so even better. I have too much to do today to get a chance to get into my craft room. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be ready for the next challenge.

Here's my version of the adorable mini mailbox she made. Enjoy!
