Paper Pretties Monday

Good Morning!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  It was good here, pretty much laid back.  Yesterday evening was filled with football.  My son is soooo excited that the Patriots won.  I am, too, he was getting pretty grumpy there for a bit.

So let's talk about this week's challenge at Paper Pretties.  We've got a color combo for you....

Pink, Red & White

And we have two new adorable sets releasing.  I am featuring Lancelot.

I love how my card turned out.  Lancelot is such a super sweet bear and the papers I chose.  Ack!  I am sooo happy with my card even though I am not a fan of Valentine's Day.  It used to be fun when my kids were little but not so much anymore.

I did pull some inspiration from some other challenges, too.

Just Us Girls - also Pink, Red & White combo
Unscripted Sketches - Sketch
Crafts 4 Eternity - use office supplies for embellishments

Now head on over to Paper Pretties to play along.
