You’re the Best for Colour Me…!

It’s the middle of the week, which means it’s time for another great challenge at Colour Me…! This is our Playful week, so we are working with Pool Party, Lost Lagoon, Cajun Craze and Tangerine Tango.

This is also our last week with our wonderful Guest Designer, Ceal! So be sure to check out her blog and leave her some comment love!

Our challenge:

CMCC Full Graphics-009

My card:

DSCN0938My goodness this was a challenging colour combo for me!  I knew I had to keep it simple, so I stayed in my comfort zone, using some DSP for the background and incorporating flowers as a decorative element. And you know, I am quite happy with the result!

The challenge will end on August 31st, at 12:00pm (EST). And as with any challenge, there are a few rules, to keep things fair – you can check them out here.

Hope to see you in the gallery!

Flowers, Just Because

Happy Sunday everyone!  My family and I are off to the Capital Fair for the day. The kids are so excited for the rides, games and maybe a show or two. It’s going to be a great way to end the weekend.

And because it is Sunday, it is time for a new colour challenge at Sunday Stamps! This time we are using Marina Mist, Pink Pirouette, Old Olive and White.


I kept my card very simple this week and used a new challenge I found, for the inspiration of my layout. Monday Lunchtime Sketches, is a challenge created by Mary Jo at TechnoStamper. You really should go check out some of the awesome sketches she has come up with!

Please do check out what my fellow DT members have created. I know you are going to be inspired by what they have come up with! Holly (creator)MarieStephKathya, Angel and a big welcome to our newest DT member, Alyson.

And just to keep things fair, please remember that we do have a few rules. You can check them out here.

The deadline to submit your creation is Friday, September 5th, at 6pm (EST), so there’s plenty of time to play along!

Hope to see you in the gallery!
