Color Hues #31 Guest Designer!


I loved receiving the invitation to play cards with the fabulous
Color Hues team for Challenge #31!
Thanks, Nancy - and thanks to our Hostess, Cindy!

Here are Cindy's very appropriate final color picks for December 2021!


That's right - this challenge will run from now until December 29th!  Lots of time to play, and tons of inspiration from their designers!  Ready for my card?  You can see all the inspiration I needed to make my Red and Green choices right outside my studio window!  I'm having lots of feathered friends visiting daily!



A wonderful Berry Sprig set from Pigment Craft Co.*, stamped three times, and their sentiment, too!


Since the coordinating dies cuts the 'you' separately, why not use the CH31 colors there, too?



These are the inks I've used today.

Now, may I dedicate this one to each and every kind person who takes the time in their busy days to stop by my lowly little blog for a visit?  You can't know the joy it brings me throughout the year!


Okay.  Now it's YOUR turn!  Lots of ways to use Red and Green at this time of year!  We'll be ready for you in the Color Hues gallery!

Ho, Ho, HO!!

The feeling is mutual, sweet friend. You bring us joy by sharing your talent and creativity. You've certainly met the red and green brief for this month's challenge. They made the right choice when they chose you to Guest Design. Love the richness of your berries dangling from those glorious green leaves.

I absolutely LOVE this stamp set you used Michele (might just have to break down and buy it!!), and your card is just BEAUTIFUL!! The blending on the leaves and especially the berries is FABULOUS, and even the die cut sentiment is just perfect! And of course the card is even more perfect after seeing it in real life! Congrats on your GD spot...well deserved my friend!! Hugs. :0)
