Happy Valentine’s Day!!!

Wishing you a happy Valentine’s Day!! I know many people feel this is a “Hallmark” holiday.  You either love it, deal with it, or skip it.  Personally I am in the middle.  My husband is lucky as I don’t expect or want flowers or gifts.  I do enjoy making cards as it is an excuse to craft!!!  Here are my cards for my husband and son.

This one I designed for my husband.  I used a cut file from my Silhouette.

For my son’s card I saw this adorable card on Pinterest and knew I needed to replicate. Now I did not have the same stamp set but I was able to improvise!

Happy Crafting!

Color Dare #261 ~ Nutmeg, White Daisy, Toffee, Almond, Lemon with Gold (optional)

Welcome to this weeks Color My Heart Color Challenge!  This week for Color Dare #261 we are challenging you to combine  NUTMEG, WHITE DAISY, TOFFEE, ALMOND, and LEMON with the Option to add GOLD.

In case you have not noticed, we made a couple of changes to our challenges starting this month!! We are sure you will love it!!  Color Dare #261 will be active from two weeks so there will be two challenges running at all times. The two current challenges will be available on the sidebar of the Color Dare Blog.

This extension gives you more time and flexibility to create and hopefully invite more participants for Color Dare – but please don’t wait for the closing date to submit your entry. Winners will be announced at the close of each challenge.
You may have noticed the new color palette layout. This was designed for better clarification of the colors. CTMH cardstock has the actual color on one side and the other side is a lighter variance of the same color.
This new palette photo will make it easier for comparison for matching colors if you don’t have CTMH Colors. Plus…the variance of the same color gives you a fair range for substituting similar colors so you can still join in all the fun.
The rules will remain the same (All and Only) the featured colors in our Challenge, neutrals will be specified and some colors optional.
Here is my creation this week:
I designed this card based off of one in the Annual Inspirations book on page 72.  I used almond ink on the lighter side of the Toffee cardstock and also the Nutmeg ink to stamp the buck.

Now it is your turn to create! Just create a project (card, layout or other craft project) using this weeks colors.  Then link them to the Color My Heart Blog ~ Color Dare #261 or you can post them to the COLOR MY HEART FaceBook page.  For this Color Dare Challenge, you have until Thursday September 28, 2017 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time to submit your project.   We love to see your inspirations.

Happy Crafting!
