Created by Courtney Challenge #23

Today's challenge is a color challenge. If you don't have SU paper, you can substitute with any like colors.

I joined a raining card group on the Magnolia Yahoo Group, so I made this card for one of this month's recipients. The image isn't a Valentine Collection Tilda, but I still think she's darling. She reminds me of the shy type, lol.

Paper: SU Cardstock, Basic Grey Bittersweet
Stamps: Magnolia, CTMH
Prima Flowers, Copic Markers, Bella Baubles, MM Heart Brads, and Rhinestones

Don't forget to check out the rest of the team's projects. All of them are listed here in this CBC Challenge Chicks list. If you play along with us, remember to link your creation to Courtney's blog, and you could win a prize from Courtney! If you upload to SCS, the keyword is CBCC23.

I hope you have been enjoying the New Years Celebration! Isn't it great when holidays are 3 days long? Brent and I went out to eat dinner on Monday night and I got my favorite, Peking Duck. Brent wanted Beef Broccoli and you should of seen the look on the waitress when Brent asked for Chinese Broccoli. I wanted to laugh so hard...I think she thought he didn't know what he was ordering.

The food was fabulous and they were so sweet to give us free dessert and a gift card for the same amount of our dinner. It was the best Chinese food I've had since I've left Portland, lol.

Brent also took me to go see Gran Torino after dinner. I wrote about it here on my livejournal. Since I don't post my artwork on there anymore...I haven't post on there in a long time. I also put my settings back so anonymous comments can't be posted, just an fyi.

Anyhoo- I hope you all have a great Tuesday!
