DD#5 ~ It's a Good Day!

Hi there and a happy Saturday to all! I'm back today with a whimsical little card for our Dynamics Duos challenge. This week we want to see your creations using the bold and sassy colours of Real Red and Island Indigo.


Now one would think with all of the paper I have in my collection that I would have something to represent Island Indigo. Nope...not one thin strip to be had. Sooooo I went the glitzy route to get my colour in and used some fun ribbon and buttons. I think they add just the right amount of sass! Isn't this tricycle by Unity as sweet as can be! I love the old fashioned block stamp look of the companion sentiment stamp. My polka dot paper is from Lily Bee Design die cut with Spellbinders: labels 10.

Ok true story from when I was a tiny little girl ~ one of the tricycle age (insert EONS ago!). While shopping with my parents I had in my possession a quarter and I wanted to spend it. I wanted to buy my very own box of band-aids. Now I have a feeling they did cost more than 25 cents, but I came home with them. Much to my parents surprise I proceeded to open EVERY band-aid in the box and put EVERY one of them on my tricycle..heeee!!! Talk about a sassy little girl, LOVE that story!!! I'm sure my sassy little self was thinking "It's a Good Day!"

Be sure to stop by to see all of the spectacular designs my fellow Dynamos have come up with. I can't wait to see all of your entries. Thanks so much for visiting and have yourself a bold and sassy day! ~Lisa
