Today it is my turn to host the challenge for Addicted to Clean and Simple.
Our sponsor  for this challenge is:
I hope you can play along with us.
The prize is a  $15 gift certificate to the HLS Shop!

I'd also like to welcome Ardyth Percy-Robb as our Guest Designer .

For this challenge 
I chose the Code Word Red.
As you can see,  I used red ink on a really old (2008) The Cat's Pajamas clear stamp 
and now it is permanently stained red but it doesn't effect how it stamps .
The tiny red star jewels are also from the depths of my stash...
it does feel good to use some of this old stuff so I can buy more! lol 

I hope you'll try your hand at making a red card!

'till next time,


  1. Oh, Doni, this is totally adorable!!! Love your cute balloon with curved sentiment. And thank you for the RED, I love this color.

  2. Love your single cherry red balloon, and your embossed background panel really makes it pop! Such a fun card!

  3. Hi Doni, thank you so much for your wonderful comments on my blog. I saw your card at HLS and love the look of this card. Particularly the lines across the red panel. Not sure how you did that look but its so elegant and finishes the card off perfectly.

  4. ...those lines are actually just very thin strips of red cardstock..easy peasy!

  5. Such a pretty design! The colouring on your balloon looks great.

  6. Gorgeous challenge, gorgeous card Doni and simply red hot design. Sarah x

  7. What a sweet 'red' card. The embossing draws the eye right in.

  8. Love the thin lines and the gorgeous balloon. Striking card in the red with the white against it x
