Do it with Red!

The GingerLoft Challenge is up and running for another fortnight!  This time the challenge is "RED".  How easy is that?  It is almost Valentines Day.  Get on with it and get those cards, projects, whatever done and include the color red.  I have 2 cards that I have made as a DT for this challenge.  Tami has some amazing digis available on her website.  Many are freebies and many for sale.  What are you waiting for?  Go check it out!
These swans were the recent digi that Tami gave us to work with for the CDAC heart hop.  If you completed the hop, this digi was the prize from GingerLoft Designs.  I wish you could see this IRL.  There is enough glitter on this card to light up a room!  LOL.  I've never been accused of lack of bling!

The second card that I made I did because it felt like cheating to use the card that I gave Tami for the CDAC heart hop as the GingerLoft challenge card also!  That conscience thing again!  Like I really needed a reason to go make a card!  hehe
This was using "TheKiss".  I love this image and have used it previously on the GingerLoft Challenge site.  I am  not usually a 'red' person but I think I could get used to this.
