ah, whats on my desk.

Well my friends - the challenge is a Valentine card not using any pink or red !!!  yikes......

I have a couple of ideas perculating....not sure if they will actually be the finished product.  This Stampsmith image is definately the one I will use though.


  1. That is a challenge and a half, but do love the image you have picked. good luck Francesca #50

  2. Ah creams and gold and lace, frills beads, make it vintage valentine gosh my head is about to explode with ideas

    Have fun
    Happy New Year

  3. You are so tidy and organised - I am making you my 2013 Muse!
    Cannot wait to see the completed card.

  4. Sounds a great challenge, I like being random and different! Anyway Happy New Year to you, here's hoping 2013 is a superb year for us all. Take care Zo xx 69

  5. Im impressed valentines cards already.. good luck with the no red or pink !!also would like to wish you and yours a Happy new year and hope 2013 is a year of much happiness, prosperity and good wishes Andrea #9

  6. I like the sound of that challenge not being into pink at all. Loving what you are creating and thanks for the visit. Happy New Year and all the best for a creative 2013, hugs Erika.

  7. pink or red...I could get into that. Thanks for visiting my desk and leaving such an awesome comment! I hope your sister and daughter like the blog and get something they can use from it. Share it with anyone that needs a little encouragement or to see there are others out there like them...that's why I do it! Hope you have a Happy and Prosperous New Year! Look forward to your posts in 2013! Vickie #17

  8. Clever you, rising to the challenge, the sepia and vintages look is a perfect antidote to the pinks and reds...and I love the image too. So early in the new year and you're up for challenges...go you!

  9. I'll have to go check out the stampsmith website. I'm sure the card will be beautiful. I like the black and white image.
