Ten to Tango....

I am sure some of you are aware that I have jumped into blogging with both feet.  And, I did it for a few reasons....
1.  I'd like to try out for a Design Team.  {Yep, still hemming and hawing over that!}
2.  To make friends and enable others. {Doing that!!}
3.  For the FUN of it! {Ding that one too!!}

Well, this post hits on two of those three reasons....Numbers 2 and 3, if you didn't figure that out....LOL

Over at SCS, Jenn asked if I'd be interested in a blog group....Sure, I say!  So here is my card for our first Ten to Tango Challenge

This card will be going to a local hospice, Aurora House.  They just opened their doors about a month ago and I have heard many wonderful things about them!  I wanted my card to be an uplifing one.  I used pink to represent the fight against cancer.  My image is a digi from Pink Petticoat and is coloed mostly with Copics - the pink flowers use Bic Mark-Its.  The pink glitter paper is from Colorbok, the pink CS is Stampin' Up and the DP is the current freebie from D.A.I.S.I.E.  I'd never tried printing paper, but thought that a 4 by 6 piece wouldn't take too much ink!  It was fun and I had hardly any waste (the other half will be used, no doubt).

I hope you have enjoyed today's project and might even join in on our challenge! 

Huggz,
April

April, I love the cute bird stamp you have used. You and I had similar thoughts when it came to the wording. I am sure your local hospice will love it. :)
