TSG41 -- Color Challenge


Hello everyone~
Well, I hope all of you are staying safe and warm. We had about 6 inches snow in East Texas!! That's nothing comparing with the one in North but it was a huge for us! As we expected, our ISD was closed on Friday! I'm glad my kids had a chance to play with snow and they had so much fun!! Unfortunately the snow already started melting and it's so muddy right now :(

I also have one card to show you today.
There She Goes challenge 41 (TSG41) has been posted since Monday and I finally got to play :P The Trendsetter of the week, Dawn is challenging us to use the color combo, red, pink and brown. My mood was something cold...so I picked Ice Cream mini set to create the card for the challenge :) I LOVE Neapolitan flavor because it's such a simple and classic combo -- vanilla, chocolate and strawberry in one bowl...can't beat the deal, lol. The name "Neapolitan" always makes me chuckle too...For a long time, I used to believe and call the flavor "Napoleon" until my hubby mentioned one day :*

I colored the ice cream image with Copic markers and stamped "Ice Cream " around the edge.
SCS Sketch challenge 265 (SC265) was inspired for the layout of the card. You can tell I didn't stick to the sketch, especially for the main mat ;)


Stamps: Ice Cream (TSG)
Paper: dark chocolate (PTI), classic white (Flourishes), designer paper (DCWV)
Ink:
Memento rich cocoa, lady bug (Tsukineko), Copic markers, white gel pen
Accessaries: ribbon, button, vintage twine
Tools: photo corner punch



These are some photos I took for last 2 days.

Thursday (Feb 11th)
The snowman needs a stylish head band, lol!

I love this photo...looks like Lemon Lime (dog) is helping to build a snow man :):)


Friday (Feb 12th)
Texas winter wonderland!!

Trey could build the bigger snow men :) Woohoo!!
This cat LOVED the snow! He is definitely a cat for North, lol.

Thank you for stopping by. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Love your card with that adorable bow and popped up cherry. Had to totally LAUGH at the picture of your cat out in the snow. Oh my gosh, our cat would NEVER go out in the snow. He's a wimp compared to yours. Great pics, TFS!
