~ CR84FN Color Challenge ~ red, kraft, and brown

 Hi~! I'm back this happy Monday with some little things.

First, I had a look at CR84FN and was excited with the beautiful, rich and warm colors picked for this week's challenge.

Crimson paired with my favorite -- kraft -- and simple hues of brown... so perfect for a valentine card.

The beautiful chipboard frame comes from Miss Annie's etsy shop.
Some scrunchy tissue flowers and vintage trim... and the colors matched wonderfully with these valentine treat sacks.

... so that's my contribution to the CR84FN challenge... give it a try if you haven't; I so enjoy the colors.

And, another something -- my sister came to me yesterday, and plunked a bundle of stuff at me and said something like "can you do it before I fly to Vietnam on Wednesday" ... adding to my great, big to-do list... And I have four older sisters like that... but I don't mind (I think I don't). so this is the first one checked off the "stuff" she asked me to fix up...

A pendant frame needing a little something in the middle. So I added a chipboard blossom with glitter-flakes and a pearly middle, with some stamped leaves. And a card to hang the pendant in...

 ... another beautiful frame from Miss Annie ... I love these!

and some simple, pretty trims on the card. It's ready for someone special in Vietnam... thank you to my big sister for giving me the chance to try something so pretty like that mini frame.

hugs to you all!
