Pink, Red, and Chocolate Challenge


Okay, What's Pink, Red, and dipped in Chocolate?  Our next Challenge over at All That Scraps!!! lol.   These are great colors to work with and have so many possibilities!!!

I used this cute sketch from Seems a little Sketchy.  Cracked open This Crate Paper pad I had called Paper Heart collection and colored KiKi La Rue Heart up with my Copic Markers.  She is from the December release and I could squench her, she is so cute.

Okay, I have a mountain of 6X6 pads behind me, and errr some on the shelf, okay a lot on the shelf, and a box full, okay, more than a box full.  So why do I want to run down to the LSS to see if they have the new Echo Park paper pad in? lol.  I'm so bad, but paper gives me mojo and so I'm surrounded by it and I feel like I have to have the new stuff all the time. lol.  Am I not alone?  What's worse is that someone offered to sell it for me at their LSS garage sale and now I'm hoarding it because of those 6x6 chipboard books I just know I'm going to get the chance to make one of these days. lol.  So my new thing is to try to use some old papers while getting new papers.  Hoping that I will buy less..... Do you think it will work? lol.  I hope so. 

I cannot wait to see your uploads to the Wednesdays Challenge page!

Thanks for Looking and for your kind Comments.

Your card is gorgeous Holly. I love the sweet image, the colours and papers are beautiful.
I seem to like collecting pretty papers too, using it is a different matter!

Oooh, what a yummy color combo! Your card is adorable! Yes, I am a 6x6 paper hoarder as well... I have enough to last several lifetimes, but always "need" more! :)

Loving your card and commiserating with you over the paper situation. I now have cardstock stored in my extra bedrooms. I swore I wasn't going to buy another piece,but I brought home at least 100 sheets of Christmas paper yesterday...aside from my paper-addiction, I couldn't pass up an 80% off sale!

You did an awesome job with this color scheme! This is too cute :) And of course I love the cheeks - LOL! You need to be surrounded by papers I think to keep your mojo up... that's why I hoard mine :)
