Another fortnight has passed and it's time for the next Ike's World 
This challenge will run from:  Jan 31 - Feb 12   
 I chose Ike's beautiful "Love Letters" image

Recipe Card:
Recollection Cherry Red Cardstock
DWVC Pure White
W00, W0, W2
R39, R59, R89 
Pilot Pens: Gold and Silver
White Gel Roll pen
Red Heart Doily
Small Flowers from a recent online sale
Clear rhinestones
Various Scraps

This was one image I've been waiting to color with anticipation I looked at my Copics
My first thought was a wooden box with red details.  Then the more I looked at it I decided
it had to be white with a cool grey shadows and bright red berry hearts.  This was as close as my
rheumatoic hands could come to what my crazy brain saw in my head.  I hope you like it.
Please join us in this challenge at Ike's Challenge page

Don't forget to leave me some love and encouragement before you leave.

It's the 2nd fortnight for Ike's Challenge
I used the beautiful Blossom Shoe
It's appears very intricate but if you look closer and start with the vines
then you'll see that it works down to a few large roses and several small petite flowers.

Recipe Card:
Paper: Doodlebug Designs Inc.Hello Sunshine
Rsoes: R39, 59
Shoe Shadow : C1, C2
Vines: Chameleon G83
Curly Q's: Pilot Metallic Gold

The ribbon was purchased from Notions of Beauty
The maroon ribbon, bow and pearl were from my stash.
I hope this card inspires you in some way and
I hope you find an image that touches your heart and/or soul and join us at Ike's #79 Challenge.
Please be sure to leave me some love if you like my creativity.

Happy New Year Everyone

The short holiday is over at Ike's and a new challenge is beginning.
The challenges are now "Anything Goes" with a Twist.
 This challenge runs from January  03 - 15  

My first card of the year for Ike was a no brainer for me.

 I'm sure I'll be entering this in some challenges just not sure yet which.

I'll update this post if I enter it in other challenges.
