Rubber Cafe Challenge, here we go again!! {And only 1 more day for my Blog Candy!!}

hehe Here is my other card for the DT Challenge over at The Rubber Cafe! We had to make an all white card using just an accent of red! So here is my second try!

I just ran a simple piece of white cardstock through my Cuttlebug with my favorite Embossing folder, Swiss Dots. I then matted my stamped image on to another piece of white cardstock using pop dots for some added dimension. Isn't that stamp adorable! It is called Heart Strings #G-779 available only at The Rubber Cafe. I stamped it in some Dark Red ink and sprinkled a little ultra fine glitter onto it. I then added some simple ribbon and bow to the card and some little red circles in the corner. Hope you like it!

I want to give a couple of thank you's today too! First off to my new friend Kristine, who is also a newbie along with me on the Queen Kat Designs DT! She sent me this adorable card for my Birthday tomorrow! She is just so sweet! And isn't that card precious! You can see more of her outstanding creations on her blog, Ink Something!Thank you Kristine, I love it!

And another thank you goes to my other friend Sharon for giving me this adorable Hugs Award! Sharon was on the Inque Boutique Advisory Board with me awhile back and she has become a great friend! You can visit her blog, Lil Princess Card Creations, for some more wonderful inspiration! Thanks again Sharon!

**Don't forget that tomorrow is my Birthday and you know what that means!! The last day to enter for my Birthday Blog Candy! Just go to THIS POST!! Good Luck!!**

I want to also thank everyone for all the awesome comments you always leave me and for the Special Birthday wishes!! You all ROCK!! THANK YOU!!

And lastly, I have some EXCITING news!! I just wish I could tell you!! LOL It is awesome!! I am still in shock!! But I have to wait until Mid February and Mid March to tell you!! The suspense is already killing me!! Ughh!! Oh, well!! You'll know soon enough!! LOL
