Handmade with Love

Do you remember the days when red + pink was a gigantic no-no? An unpardonable sin of design? {This was probably back in the day when everyone was trying to figure out if they were an "autumn," "winter," "spring," or "summer." I was a winter and supposed to wear only jewel tones. Um... no.} Good thing those days are gone. I love this color combo. Happy, right? Layout is straight out of Go-to Sketches. Still loving that issue. Such an easy sketch for a quick card using lots of scraps.
I'm heading out tomorrow to teach at CKC Tulsa.
Can.
Not. Wait. Any of you Okies {or otherwise} planning on being there?
Leave me a note so I can look for you!

Love the combination here.

I too remember those days. In fact I remember seeing a family friend wearing red and pink lycra bike shorts (yes, we are talking hot pink) and thinking "um...no!"

Such a great card... love the red & pink together. And, um, yeah... I was a "spring". Pastels. Yuck. By the way, you've been in my Google Reader for awhile, but I just found out that I know your Aunt Jackie in Charlotte. Small world. Back to the card, though, love the layout and love how you used the PTI Guidelines cardstock as the base. Looks super -- I'll have to try it.
