I seem to have had a busy week - don't really know where the time has gone, but the week has just disappeared! But one thing I did do was make a card for a friend whose favourite colour is 'red'. I like red, but its a colour I don't really wear, apart from red gloves and a red bag. My friend Jean looks great in red and has quite a lot in her wardrobe - hence the red card.

I have used 5 Clarity stamps on this card - Velvet Lady, Lamppost, Moon shadow and a corner stamp for the steps and building in the background of the image. I paper pieced the ladies coat and used a lot of chalk for the background. The card base is the Clarity swirl, stamped and heat embossed with gold directly onto the red card stock.

I am entering this card into Crafts & Me challenge which is Red.
Also By the Cute & Girly challenge is 'Red is all around us', so I am entering it there.

Have promised myself a 'crafty night', must get my House Mouse challenge card made!

Thanks for looking, and if you like what you see, please pop back.

This has such a "WoW" factor, I love it, so simple but so elegant, think this is the best you have shown!! I love the colouring round the light and the shading of the buildings..such a contrast with that beautiful red
Love Jenni
