Tickled Pink Challenges.. LATE!!

It's been one of those weeks.. kids home from school with tummy bug.. dealing with tummy bug myself...  hubster is away...  and I forgot to link up my challenge card for Tickled Pink.. argh!!!!

This is Valentine Luca, he's a tall one.. tall, dark and handsome!! ..if not a little bit cheesy with his 'hey! sweet thing' sentiment, loll. I used to have jeans like those.. long long time ago, and they were sooooooo tight that I'd have to bend over backwards to get the zip up!! Ahh those were the days.. couldn't do it now, I'd pass out from lack of oxygen!! And as for the muffin top.. not pretty!! LOL!!

My papers are from the Offbeat Collection by Basic Grey. These are really bright and funky papers, love 'em!! The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps 'Fancy Phrases'.

I also made a card for Tickled Pink Christmas challenge - I'm afraid to look in case that's too late too, lol.

I've used Lil Christmas Frankie and he was given as a freebie by Kellie.. thanks!!! 

The papers on this one are a mix of Pink Paislee and Basic Grey offcuts that I had in a box. I added some vellum and used frosted lace stickles to make it appear as if there was snow on the vellum.. I think it worked??! The die cut tag is attached to some pine green scrappers floss and mounted on a 3D pop dot.
