CR84FN 13/ For You Friend

Hello my sweets.  I had a lovely day today.  The temps were close to 70 and the sun was shining.  My son and I took a 2-3 mile walk on the walking/biking trail in our neighborhood and stopped at the park in the middle for a little break/play time.  I was shocked how many people were out.   I also think everyone in the neighborhood owns a dog except for us.  The big park in the middle also has a dog park and disc golf course so it attracts a lot of people.  The birds were singing and I got a little natural Vitamin D that was greatly needed after this cold winter we have had.  Now it looks like it will be 30 next weekend.  I am bummed.

I am back tonight to share with you my card for this weeks color challenge at CR84FN.  I have to admit these colors together are not ones I would normally use.  The turquoise and brown yes, but not the red.  I seriously don't have any red patterned papers.  I do like how it turned out though.  Just a touch of red.

 I used my new stamp set from PTI called Mat Stack 2.  I love all the pretty scroll designs in this set.  I also decided to use the same LO of a card I made a while back that you can find HERE.
 The butterflies stamped at the bottom are from the PTI set called Butterfly Dreams (one of my all time favs) and the heart is from the set Just For You.


Don't forget to stop by the other girls blogs and see what they have created for your viewing pleasure.

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Heather

I love these colors and you worked your magic - your card is beautiful! Lovin' that stamp set from PTI (Mat Stack). I have one, but haven't used it yet - hopefully before next release! :)
Lucky you - 70's?!? Still damp, cold, grey and dreary - blizzard will hit Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday - they are predicting 12-18 inches! I hate Chicago weather! :(
