Rosy Cheeks

You'll definitely have those if you're venturing out in this icy cold weather!  Pink and Red is also the chosen combo of Jo who's set the second of our First Friday Colour Combo challenges on the Daring Cardmakers today.
Here's my card
I've used the current LO from The Sketch File Blog, shrunken to leave lots of (scary) white space around the sketch design.

Fancy Pants Beach Babe 6x6 papers, Red Bazzill card + a scrap of white
Pink Lokta paper coiled flower (Spellbinders)
Red organza ribbon, Tiny pink ric-rac and White Lace, plus card candy all from my Creative Treasures stash, Sentiment is a homemade decal sticker
Spellbinders coiled flower die, EK Success Border Punch

Building work update:
The kitchen units are now in (but no doors) and the appliances are also in - though most don't actually work yet.  We have a functioning tap, sink and washing machine, though all the connections are just temporary atm - at least we don't need to wash the dishes upstairs any more - but we'll still be using as few as possible, that's for sure! The "Corian Man" came this morning to make the templates for the worktops, and yesterday Ben the Kitchen Fitter made the template for the breakfast bar which will be made from solid oak. It'll be a couple of weeks till the Corian is ready to fit and then things will really be on the home straight.
The tiler has just arrived to tile the floor in the new cloakroom, The tiles took soooo long to decide on but in the end we've gone for Travertine - it's a small space so we'll push the boat out a little!  At the moment the new washstand/sink etc are standing in the lounge - I try not to look at that end of the lounge with it's assortment of hatstands, Dysons, piles of cookbooks and various sample floor tiles....
So...still quite a way to go yet, but week by week we're getting there!
I'll get some photos on here at the weekend - always good to have a nose around other peoples' houses, isn't it ;)?
Right, I'm not sure where this day has gone, but going it is, and fast!
Thanks for visiting

this is such a gorgeous card Kathy - lots of lovely things. Really like that border punch. And just keep going with the house - it will be so worth it in the end!

Lovely combo Kathy. See if I can use the sketch for one of my 365+1 layouts.
