Pink & Teal Card Swap

FINALLY!!!...i have some time to post...big sigh...been so busy i'm not sure if i was coming or going...going crazy i guess...some days i didn't know the day of the week or the date...i think i lost track of an entire month...i know we have all been there right?

well on to the cards...this swap: Pink & Teal over on SCS was one i really connected with...the color combo represents the ribbon colors for breast (pink) and ovarian/gynecological (teal) cancers...which are cancers that have effected those nearest and dearest to me...

the first card is done with a favorite retired SU set...tickled out-laws live in Florida and send us all kinds of flamingo fun..and the sentiment inside was just right..

Tickled Pink
Paper: Early Espresso..Taken with Teal..Whisper White..DP
Ink: Jet Black..SU markers..pretty in pink
Stamps: Tickled Pink


for the next card i used a digi stamp..ribbon bear...used GIMP (a pic editing program) to color in the ribbon and to "piece" the DP onto the bear...if you look close you can see it matches the DP behind the image..

Ribbon Bear
Paper: Pretty in Pink..Whisper White..DP
Ink: Printer
Stamp: Ribbon Bear Digi

My oldest daughter..Jonni.. also joined this swap...she used the ribbon bunny digi stamp...she is new to coloring with SU give her some leeway..i think her addition of a teal gem bellybutton was cute and fun..

thanks for hanging in with safe/be well...i have another couple of swaps to get posted...


  1. Very cute!! Love that "paper pieced" bear. What a great idea. I think your dd did an amazing job with the markers!

  2. such lovely Cards. Missed you and happy to see you back

  3. Oh what a fun filled post! Each one of your cards are so adorable - the first one is very Miami :) Love the designs and beauty of each! x0x0

  4. All are wonderful!
    Love the image on the first one - and that DP - I actually have some of that paper. Now I need to find it!
    The second one is awesome with the photo editing you did - and precious image.
    And last but not this one and the coloring is great! I have a terrible time using the markers for coloring. LOVE that belly button too.
    Precious cards.

  5. You sure have been busy..These are adorable. Love how you paper pieced the bear.

  6. Great cards from you, and your daughter too. I love the flamingo card, how fun is that sentiment!?! The paper-piecing is wonderful, and your daughter did a great job (that belly-button is adorable).

  7. Love the sentiment on the first caard and the card is so cute too - kicking myself for not buying that set! I'm impressed with your computer skills to fill in on the second card. And kudos to your daughter for her sweet card! She has a great mentor!

  8. Wonderful swap cards. I wish I had more time to check them out on SCS. I can see why your in-laws would love the flamingo card.

  9. Great cards! Love how you matched the paper on the bear-you computer person you! Tell your DD that the teal bellybutton makes the card and her coloring is better than mine!

  10. Love all the different interpretations of the color combo.

  11. Great cards! Love the bright colors and fun flamingos on the first one and your 'piecing' on the second is amazing! I am severely lacking in the computer crafting area! LOVE your daughter's card and the gem bellybutton!


thanks for leaving me some cyber-hugs!!
