Pink & Blue Christmas

Not sure what's going on with me and this Pink craze, I put it down to the Bubblegum ink from Hero Arts.  A quick post with a card I made a few days ago using some PTI "Tree Trimming Trio" stamps and some Amy Tangerine designer paper.

I popped up the centre panel and added a piece of twine which I knotted here and there.  The blue ink is Tumbled Glass Distress ink.  The little pink baubles are also popped up.

I went for a run with 3 girlfriends this morning and we decided to go into the bush which is literally 1.6 miles up the road.  It's a small nature reserve next to a housing estate.  Here are some pictures of the wonders of nature we got to run alongside of!

Buck,

Zebra,


And good old gorgeous outdoors!  Today I am grateful.

Have a wonderful day!

Brenda - I had to drop by here between my travels and see that you have been so busy creating lots of wonderful things, adventuring into new things (your volunteering is so heartfelt), and settling in so well. Love the tags and that you are making such great connections. Will be back next month - take care and hugs!

Pretty card! I love that set and the colors just make it pop. You certainly don't get those views in Houston!

Lovely funky christmas colours, Brenda! Love the combination!

Gosh! You are so lucky to bump up all these wild animals! Two days ago, while I was in the train, I thought I was lucky to see two wild deers from a distance but you are even luckier then me!

What a PRETTY Christmas card! Love the non-traditional colors and the perfect sentiment!

Really love the fabulous photos. How enjoyable it must be to see zebras and beautiful scenery while running. Nothing like Houston!

HUGS to you!
