Speedy Fox & Friends - I am seeing RED!

Hello there!  Happy weekend to you!  
Why am I seeing red? The Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge
 this week is to create a card and make it RED!  

Today I am sneak peeking ROSES, one of the new sets being released next week on Mark's Finest Papers & Stamps a HC blog. 

Do you ever create something that holds a special memory?  This card will always put a smile on my face as it has a bittersweet memory attached to it.  I created this in my tiny craft room with my daughter and her friend.  Her friend is moving away, so sad.  We were blessed to get the chance to have her visit with us for a couple of days right before she left.  Kimberly caught the stamping bug on a previous visit to our house!  She LOVED playing in my stamp room.  What a thrill!  Sadly my daughter has no interest so you can imagine how fun it was for me.  :)   Even though DD tried to pull Kimberly away from the stamp room she insisted on staying and watching me color this rose with Inktense pencils.    

For the inside I kept the same layout but used the smaller rose image and stamped it in the lower corner. 


I showed Kimberly how to add texture to punched flowers by using a stylus.
My sweet girl is humoring us and keeping occupied with glitter glue and marker!  She prefers drawing and says she can't stand cutting and measuring  to create cards.  

Thanks so much for looking!  For more details on this week's challenge and inspiration from my talented teammates please visit Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge!


  1. Very pretty , the rose is lovely...........Lis

  2. This is really pretty, I am going to be using this rose a lot. What fun to have an excited young stamper in the stamp room. Very cute girls.

  3. Beautifully color rose Angela. The rose on the inside corner is just enough.


  4. Lovely card and lovely story to go with it. I hope Kimberly will be happy in her new home and manage to catch the crafting bug with someone close. Maybe she will be on Splitcoast one day thanking you for helping her along the way.
