Pink, orange and green...

Well, my parents have gone this morning on a plane back to South Dakota, I'm going to miss them like crazy. There's nothing like being with your own family. It's hard knowing that it might be another year until we get to see each other again. (cry!)

We had a lot of fun, touring around and got to go see the top 10 American Idols on tour Wed. night! It was FABulous!! I didn't get any photos of that night, because I didn't think we could bring cameras in, but as it turns out everyone was recording it with their phones anyway, so next time I'm bringing my camera for sure. Anyway, I'll post some pics soon of their visit!

Here is my card for the next challenge at Card-a-licious, to create a card with pink, orange and green:I stamped a swirl from the new Amber Road stamp set by Pink Paislee in hot pink and then layered the ribbon and letters over the top.
Supplies: Jenni Bowlin ribbon, Basic Grey chipboard letters, Pink Paislee chipboard/ stamp/papers, Making Memories buttons and a Melissa Frances rub on.

Another one that I made for the challenge, but I decided I liked the first one better. I painted a rainbow with the colors that we were to use for the challenge and stitched over them with the same colors of thread.

Supplies: Melissa Frances rub on, Pink Paislee's Cupid papers/Amber Road stamp/new Pink Paislee Expressions glitter letters, Jenni Bowlin ribbon, and a Making Memories button.

I'm glad you had such a wonderful time with your parents and I understand how hard it is to say goodbye to them! My parents live quite a distance away from me, too. Looking forward to your pics of their visit!

Both of these cards are GREAT!! I love the sewing on the chipboard letters and since I just got a new sewing machine, I'll have to try this technique. The orange stripe ribbon on both of these is SO yummy!! Such cheerful and happy cards!! ♥♥ Kay
