Bella Challenges #54

My card for the #54 bella sketch challenge. I was trying to do a cross between a support the troops card for a SCS lady I RAKed some images to for her Soldier project and a Christmas card since the images are for Christmas presents. I love the colors and think it turned out way cute with the exception of one thing... I think it's hard to tell what Cause she is actually supporting, lol. Anyway, I know about the wearing Red on Fridays so I figured the ribbon should be red and then just did a Christmas color theme for the rest. You can't tell in the pic but I also gave her gold sparkly tights as well as added a little gold to the flower on her dress ^_~

And this cute little Cuppa Wishes is for the Color Challenge this week :D I went by the SU colors which were Rose Red, So Saffron and Celery. I used the SU Color Combo site to see the colors myself since I couldn't see the sample yesterday morning for some reason and they looked to me like Hollyhock, Buttercup, and Sweet Leaf, so those were the ones I used ^_~ I have had this cup stamped out for a little while now, but just hadn't gotten around to playing with it yet, so today I made the leap and did another non-traditional colored Christmas card. And I'm really liking these colors together too!! The heat swirls are done up with my silver glitter pen so it's a little sparkly on this card too ^_~

I've noticed that I haven't been taking pictures of me like I had planned, or at least not that many. So the other morning, without doing my hair, makeup, nada, I got a couple snaps of Audrey and me in the morning. We are both grumpy morning girls. Audrey stays in bed f-o-r-e-v-e-r!! She gets it from me, lol. Here we are just cuddling in what we consider early morning time, 10 am lol!! Anyway, I will be working on the papertrey template, it will take me a few days since we've got a birthday this weekend and a friend coming over that we haven't seen in a long while. You all have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by :D
