Color Throwdown #327



Hi everyone!  It's Wanda here as your hostess and I've got some bold and beautiful colors this week: purple, yellow green, aqua (or a turquoise shade of blue) and pale yellow!  While browsing through some Etsy shops, I came across this unique, mosaic-styled heart and knew it would be my inspiration photo. I had fun creating a non-traditional Valentine, but of course, you can use any theme you'd like.  This is all about having fun!

Congrats to Marlena McDeavitt of Marlena is Faithfully Crafting!  She was randomly chosen as this week's guest star stamper!

Since it's the last Wednesday in January, that means we have to say goodbye to Bonnie Sharp - our guest designer.  Thank you, Bonnie, for your beautiful contributions!  Stay tuned...we have another talented designer joining us next week!

Color Throwdown #325



Hello there, Throwdown friends!  It's time for another challenge and this week I found this fabric with these cool, retro cats to inspire you!  I hope you'll play along (and hey, don't be afraid to throw a little celery green into your design like I did, since a few of those cats are sporting that color, too!) 

Once you have finished your card or other paper crafting project using the colors, add a direct link to your creation using the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of the post. And, don’t forget to use the keyword CTD325 if you upload your project to an online gallery. All of the challenge guidelines are in the right sidebar in case you have any questions.
