A few more "Just Because"

Happy Pre-Friday. Holiday weekend coming up, Woooo!!!

So I just wanted to share some "quick" cards I made. Lol!!! That really is a laughable term for me because even the simplest ones are nothing less than hours of love :)

 For my first card, I'm using a special Rio digi Simply Betty owner, Betty, created for her daughter. It was a special birthday digi in honor of her tuning 13. It was such a touching story of what her teen chose as her bday gift. ...... Ok, so I'm realizing with all this pink going on, I might be subconsciously trying to relive my pre teen years. Lol. I always wanted pink hair or pink tips but I was never courageous enough to do it so now, I'm vicariously living through my coloring. hehehe ......   I will be playing with Simply Betty Stamps - Rio Challenge. 

Card 2:  I used Cookie Bugg digi from Tiddly Inks. Lol! I just realized I forgot to color her legs. Oh well, It happens :). At least I caught it before I sent it off. Does that ever happen to you? You get distracted by something else on your card and you forget the final touch. [EDIT: I colored in her legs and uploaded again]. I will be playing with Tiddly Inks Challenge - You're a Stitch.
Card 3: For this card I used one of my new favorite rubber stamps, Cheeky Chat from the Greeting Farm. The cheekys are prob my favorite line although they are all cute! And whats not to love about this super girly cute stamp. Doesn't it take you back to the time when you usto just gab, gab, gab away on the phone. Awhhh, to be young again. I will be playing along with: Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Emboss It. I used 2 different embossing folders to give my card texture. I'll also be playing with The Play Date Cafe using their #78 color combo. I would have never thought to combine these colors but I think they look great together. I'm really glad I found this color challenge blog because it pushes me outside my {pink} box. :)

And now for some awesome news. Christy will be celebrating Tiddly Inks one year blogaversary on April 30 with an awesome Treasure Hunt. I'm very Excited!! to be a part of it so make sure to come back and hop with us. They're will be lots and lots of loot. So you DO NOT want to miss it!

Thanks for stopping by!
