DD#88- Real Red & Island Indigo

Good morning! It's finally Saturday and that means its time for another fabulous Dynamic Duos challenge. This week our colors are Bold & Cheery! I am thankful for something cheery. In my last post, I talked about wanting snow and well my prayers were answered. Atlanta got blasted with a winter storm last week and we got 3 inches. No, it's not a lot compared to some but it is to us Southerners. If you watched the news you saw the nightmare of traffic jams, wrecks, and all the ice on the roads. Thankfully, we were not a part of all that and were home to enjoy all the white fluffy stuff.

Here are a few pictures from our fun in the snow!

It was a fun filled day. We tried to build a snowman but realized we were not an expert with fluffy snow. So, unfortunately I don't have a Frosty picture for you this time!

And now that I got off track let's get back to our colors.... hee, hee

Aren't they just fabulous together? Since Valentines Day is around the corner I wanted to do something to celebrate the holiday. Treat bags are always fun to make and little cards to go with your treats bags are a must!

All of the products shown here are from Stampin' Up! Some are brand new while some are retired. I do apologize that most of the stuff used here are from retired products. I just can't seem to part with my old stuff! I guess you can say that when it comes to craft supplies I am a hoarder and I know it!!

Here are a few more shots and close ups of my fun projects!

I really do like the way they turned out. I can't wait to hand them out to my friends in my bible study group. You are never too old to give away Valentines goodies, are you?

Please head on over and visit my other design team members whose projects are just as inspiring!

Our challenge ends on Thursdays at Noon (PDT).  We have a few rules to keep things fun and fair!
  1. Any project is welcome...paper crafts, scrapbooking, digital, or crafts...
  2. Please ONLY use the two colours listed for your project. Neutrals are welcome.

    So glad you were not part of the "mess" in Atlanta and that you got to enjoy the snow with your children. Great photos.

  2. My comment disappeared! dang! As I was his you put different papers behind the hearts and the love tag on package is cuteness.

  3. This set is so cute!! I am the same with my retired products- I have not sold anything retired in the last 15 years (yes, I am a craft "hoarder", I admit it :-)) Love the use of the retired punch, the tag stamp set and punch as well as the new products! Thanks for sharing your snow pictures as well- your family is adorable!!
