Celebrate

I was asked to join a delightful group of women who have a very interesting challenge.  Every month a different image is used and everyone uses that same image.  It is a lot of fun to see how many different styles and personalities make cards using the very same image.   This is the stamp for the month of March.  I will be sending this card to my niece who turns 50 soon.  Thought the black color would be ideal!


Thanks for visiting and I hope this cute couple make you smile.  They sure are having fun dancing in the dark!
I do read and appreciate all  your kind comments.

I love your card, love the colors and the layout, love the beautiful papers and love your beautiful coloring. It's a great card and your niece will love it. I am having a great time. We have baby Annamarie with us. Denise had to take her daughter Jennifer who is Annamarie's Mom to the ER last night. She had an asthma attack, both sinus's were infected and they said she also had an ear infection. They gave her lots of meds and said she couldn't nurse her for 24 hrs. She does not like the bottle so we knew Jennifer would not get any rest with her so we have her and her 13 yr. old sister who is doing most of the taking care of her. Annabelle is being a good substitute Mother for her baby sister. We also have John who is Jen's only boy. He is 5 and so cute. He has blond curls and looks exactly like Jennifer did at 5 yrs. old. They are all good kids and not rowdy unless SIL Gregg decides to wrestle around on the floor with them. Denise only got 4 hrs. sleep. She got in at 5:00 AM this morning from the ER. All is going well, we are going shopping at Michaels again today to make baby books for Jasper and Annamarie. Have a great day Sandy and I really love your card. Hugs!

The black looks stunning with the pops of red! It's a really sweet stamp and it looks great within an inked scalloped circle with those little roses and leaves.
