Anya Ink - black and white and another colour challenge

Over at Anya Ink their challenge was to make a card or project using Black and White and another colour.

I didn't intent to do black, white, red (cause everyone does those colours) but it fit in with the The Greeting Farm stamp that I got for Christmas.  Plus I just bought the polka dot Ribbon from SU for valentine projects so I was dying to use it.

I had a lot of fun colouring her in.  Black hair is always a challenge but very fun to do.  I love this stamp it so cute I will definitely using her more this year.

I got some bad news the other day with my Aunt rushed to hospital with a stroke.  It was a severe stroke but they got to hospital quickly so she was treated straight away.  She has a paralyzed arm and face, a partial paralyzed leg.  We are praying for a quick recovery if there is such a thing.

Keep Safe
