Seeing Red

Two days.  It’s crunch time here in our house!  Valentines are prepared for classmates, but I’m still working on completing some simple gifts for teachers and other adults that we love!  Being my favorite holiday of the year, I can’t resist going just a little beyond sanity’s limits in my creative endeavors!  So fun!

Today is the beginning of a new cue word challenge over at CASology and how appropriate to think about…

For me, I couldn’t resist using a 2 Cute Ink digi image since that is who is sponsoring us this week!  Heidi’s images are absolutely adorable and make me smile every time I see one!  She’s been releasing new images quite a bit lately and I’m loving it!  Be sure and check out her blog and Facebook page for updates!
I used the Bee Mine digi image to create this clean and simple card.  The sentiment is from Paper Trey.

It’s been a while since I’ve used my Copic markers!  I really enjoyed sitting down and coloring!  Maybe I’ll have to get back to coloring a few more images soon!  I couldn’t resist adding some clear Stickles to the little bee’s tutu.  Glitter makes me smile.  Every.  Time.
Be sure and check out this week’s creations made by the talented CASology design team and guest designer!  Then, be sure and link up your own RED creation on the challenge blog by Sunday at 4:00 p.m. (CST)!
Have a terrific Tuesday!

    Oooo, that is super sweet, I just might have to make Philip a card now…I never do, but that bee is awesome. Thanks for enabling LOL! 🙂

    No teacher gifts this year from me…not even one. I'm not liking DD2's teacher and so every time my heart softens a bit, DD comes home with another grumpy teacher story and I get all upset again. Grrr. And DD1 has too many teacher's to do that for anymore! The elem. years will start up again soon though!!

    I like the card you made, because of its happy feeling. The image is very cute and I like the way you used only yellow and red for the colouring. Good inspiration for the challenge of this week!
