Stamp TV's CSS February Alumni Hop

Hi there (-:
 thanks for checking out our first hop for 2013!
We will be doing TWO each month this year

The first hop for the month of February is a Color Challenge Blog Hop and the color challenge is brought to us by Geri - who has challenged us to create a card or project with the following color combination:

 Pink and Red with a neutral color  Black, White or Tan 
thank you Geri!

Now you should have come from Lori's awesome blog, but if not and you want to start at the beginning - then click here to start at STV

for my two projects I used stamps from Theresa Momber

Card #1 from Theresa Momber's "Vogue Vases"


Card #2 from Theresa Momber's "Aloha"


All supplies are from GKD except for Cuttlebug folder on Card #2
Copics used are RV04, 21, R39, N2, 4, 8
Ink is Memento Black and Angel Pink and GKD - Cherry Red

now your next stop is on to Karen's fabulous blog

Make sure to leave a comment as you go along because we will choose a random comment and that stamper will win a grab bag of Gina K. Designs products! Look for the announcement on Tuesday, February 12.

Hope you enjoy the hop and are inspired!
hugs,
