Paint the Roses Red



Good mornin', everyone! Hope you're having a great Thursday morning so far!

My card today is for the Oh, Alice!'s Chapter THREE challenge. Base your card colors on these nail polishes:



Had so much fun with reds, dark pinks, blues, and purples! I think these colors together are regal.

This is also the first time I played with Charlotte from Kraftin' Kimmie. I LOVE her! Kinda made her look like the Red Queen as she is crazy but cute! It's also my take on motherhood...hehe!

Don't get me wrong...I LOVE being a mama but there are some days you just wanna pull your hair out! Look at Charlotte. She is on the brink of madness with that left eye twitching and her left foot tapping on the ground :). It is a wonderful feeling -- to love somebody THAT much. But I am so grateful for my stamping and my job. They keep me ME and give me serenity (ok...my job does not always make me calm). Still, nothing beats the feeling you get when your baby smiles at and cuddles with you.

This card also features FIVE patterned papers. That's a lot..even for me! It's for
Amy's Paper Crazy Challenge over at CA&F. Although I did not use any TGF stamps. The papers are from:

1. kol laj (purple and dark pink with blue flowers).
2. Reminisce (red with dots).
3. American Crafts (quotes).
4. KI memories (striped).
5. *not sure* (Sentiment).

Too bad the sparkles on the purple kol laj paper do not show. And I chose busy, but pretty papers because that is exactly how motherhood is :)... beautiful and chaotic!

Toodles,
