Let's Craft and Create Challenge #168: Red, Pink and/or White...

 It's the first week of February and time for a new challenge at Let's Craft and Create. This month we're suggesting you use red, pink and white (or some combination of those three colors) when creating your project. You can always choose to go the "anything goes" route, too, if that suits you better.

I've created a Valentine for my DH using all three suggested colors:

I couldn't resist using this cute gnome die set for my card. I cut all the pieces out of white cardstock and then used my alcohol markers to color him up. 

My sentiment was computer-generated and the design on the pink panel was created with a background die.

You can see in this photo how he's been popped up on foam squares. If you look closely, you can see his red and white striped leggings. Gnomes wear leggings, don't they?

The inside of my card is very simple with a stamped sentiment and a couple more hearts. Since this Valentine is for a man, I thought that CAS was the way to go.

Now it's your turn to create something for our challenge. If you need more inspiration, just click here to see all the projects the Design Team has created.

There will be a prize up for grabs, too, which makes the challenge even more fun.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

LOL! That is just the cutest gnome. And the sentiment is so fun. All the little details add so much. Love the deckle edge white label, the hearts flying off the page, the gnome.s boots-he is really ready to stomp through the snow. Great job!

He is so sweet, and you've colored him so cutely! Love the way you've finished the card.

Oh how cute is this little leggings wearing gnome. Of course they wear leggings. I know hubby is going to love his special Valentine.

What a hoot, Cheryl! I love your Valentine ganomie! And, thank you for giving him striped leggings. I think he would be mighty chilly without them! Love the coloring and the texture from the e/f and the inside is perfect! Take care and keep safe! Hugs, Darnell

Hahaha I love your little gnome dude Cheryl...I'd say he definitely wears leggings - that waist needs an elasticated waistband ;)
