Mugs of love

 I think this little image from A Day For Daisies is just so adorable.  At first I thought the little puppy was carrying a pillow, but it is actually a bag of marshmallows (you can see, though not read, the word in my second photo)!  And there are little hearts on the mugs.  So cute!
All my life, I've thought that red and pink DO not go together, so all the red, white and pink challenges were . . . well . . . challenging for me.  I made the combo a little easier for me by using a red, a dark pink patterned paper and then a lighter pink.  And I think it came out really cute.  AND I got to use that gigantic flower that has been sitting around in my "bits and pieces" stash for a while.  The stash is getting much smaller.  Now, I'm getting down to some definitely hard to use pieces.  I'll have to get creative.

Challenges:
A Day For Daisies #88--use red & pink (plus an ADFD image)
Cards Galore #2--add a gem, or glitter, or candi or any bling (I used 4 pearls, 3 rhinestones and glitter pen on the pompom on her hat)

Super cute! I have to agree with you-I've never been a fan of red and pink together either. Great job though, and bonus points for using up something from your stash...that's always satisfying! Thanks for playing in the Eureka Stamps challenge this week, hope to see you again!
