You are There...

Today at 365 it is Think Pink day.
I was going to post a bright pink card I made earlier this week but had not had a chance to post. But I decided that does not help the purpose of 365 cards. The whole idea is to make a card each day. With that said, I stuck to my guns and made a card.
I love this new little stamp by Inkadinkadoo. Are the birds not just too sweet for words? I love how sweet the pink is, it blends well with this cute stamp. I am usually a person who does not gravitate towards sweet stamps, so this is a real change for me. As is using this soft pink. I have a lot of it, I used it for my daughters ballet invites years ago. And since I have no idea what the colour is and who makes it, I figure it is time to use it up.
Do you get to that stage? Focus on trying to use paper?

It's all in the Ingredients:
Paper- pink?, DP fiscars
Stamp- Inkadinkadoo
Ink- SU! choco chip
Embellishments- Hero Arts gems, stickles icicle, pop dots

Yesterday at 365 Cards Pam challenged us to really think hard and make a different card.

"You are there and I am here"

I must say this sentiment challenge was VERY difficult.

I got out all sorts of stamps and started trying to think of how I was going to accomplish this. I had airplains, I had cute critters, I had knights and princesses, and then I decided to change my mind all together. No stamps at all. I tried thickers. I spelled the words out in all kinds of catchy ways; this too did not prove fruitful for me.

When at last the idea of cutting a simple paper suit case came to mind. And in the end simplicity won out!

I would love to see what you come up with. Please come join us at 365 cards, where there is a new challenge every day!
