I have been mulling over the plan for this birthday card for our dear friend in Australia for the last few days, and yesterday evening in the car with DH I asked him to choose the colour to go with black and white. After being awkward and choosing black to start with (ha funny ha!) he picked red. Good choice.
Every time I work with black, white and red I am reminded of that old joke - probably the first joke I ever remembered as a child: What is black, white and read all over? A newspaper! Of course, it doesn't translate well into the written word, being a play on red/read, and the word "read" having two different pronunciations. But I have loved word-play as long as I have understood it.
It's for Sketch Saturday, Whiff of Joy (celebrate) and Simon Says Stamp (black, white and one other colour). Oh and did anybody notice the winner of the first Simon Says Stamp challenge of 2013? :-) Thank you to you all at SSS! Who says 13 is unlucky? 2013 is going to be BETTER than 2012 for us all!
