My hubby isn't feeling too well today so he is sleeping and I am making cards! I have created this card for the Cinema Saturday Challenge #93-Annie-use red. It has been a while since I have participated in this challenge. I can't get It's a Hard Luck Life out of my head now! The inspiration was Annie as an orphan transforming into a cute little girl at Daddy Warbucks. She also had a lot of love to give. I also found this new challenge called Gingersnap Creations-Color Challenge-where the challenge is to use red and black.
The stamps that I used is Hero Arts for the dress and saying and the background is StampinUp embossed with white. I cut the tag with the Cuttlebug and added ribbon and bling. Thanks for stopping by!
I have created this card for 4 challenges.

My friend told me that she was going to send a card to a little 2nd grader who had broke her elbow. Her son just got over an injury just like it. I told her that I had just the stamp for it and that I would make one for her. For the House Mouse Challenge #76 you were supposed to draw inspiration from the cute little photo of a mouse. My inspiration was the colors. I used the sketch at the Truly Scrumptious Challenge #39. I colored the image with Copic markers. The saying is Stampabilities. The paper is Sassafras Lass. I ran the yellow and teal panels through the Cuttlebug. I added flowers and bling. Hubby had to work this weekend so I have been cleaning the house, now just being lazy waiting for him to come home!
