MCT 1st challenge of 2015

CLICK HERE for DL.ART Thankful Thursday #148 Challenge "Use Red/ alternate  Thank you"

Hi Everyone,

I need to get some thank you cards made, after all it is that time of year.

I certainly love this Window die cut and stamps from MCT

Here is a close up of the window. I Used quite a mix of papers.
Graphics 45, Basic grey and DCWV

To the thanks I added a few hints of gold at the edges, I went very light and it is very subtle. I used a gel and roll pen (from a huge set that I have had for awhile)

My friend Katie and I got together and had lunch at a Mexican restaurant called Pedro's In Los Gatos at the beginning of December. I got so busy after that I never got to post these photos. Hope came along also. Unfortunately she fell in the salsa, she wasn't even drinking (he he).  Luckily it was salsa rojo and not salsa verda. The green sauce would have just made her look gray.  Anyway, That is the theory behind mixing primary colors.  She is tucked away now until later in the year. Who knows she may pop out in July--(HINT)

Here are a couple of  fun shots.


Have a blessed day, Diana
