Last month there was some interest, but we were pretty busy and it didn't fly very far, so let's try this again

Anyone interested in playing a Design Seeds Color Challenge? Basically, it's an open ended color challenge where the rule is simply that you have to include EVERY color in the palette in some way on your project.

Here's what the December pick looks like.

Looks like fun, maybe?



Let's just play. No pressure. No voting.

Just post by the end of the month and we'll see what happens.

Merry Christmas!

Yeah, I probably will. It's pretty easy to put up and a color challenge is always fun. ;-)

Congratulations on making the Carta Bella folks happy!

thank you Carol. This is the first time I have EVER posted my work to a designer's site/facebook. It too a lot of guts! I don't give myself much credit when doing my art. I always see where there could be other improvements, but in this case, because I was using a BRAND NEW kit, I wanted to share. See, the papers used were my winnings from a giveaway they did. I thought I would share my first project with what they had sent me... Turned out pretty amazing I think

That's the idea! :-)

I'm a little out of pocket, girls. My mom had surgery yesterday and I'm at her house doing some nursing duty. I think I'll be here another day at least, maybe two, and her computer is a little ... old, shall we say.

I MAY get to use her new Macbook Pro, if I can pry her fingers off it. LOL

Anyway, I'll do my best to keep things up to date, and next week should see me back to normal.

Hey gang.

I've been MIA again.

I don't begrudge my mom and dad the time that they need from me. In fact, I'm so very happy that I no longer work and can SPEND time with them. But time is a limited resource, and I'm not finding much of it left over for my SB.com stuff.

I'm trying - but it's getting really hard to find free minutes!

No worries Pat - you have to do what you need to do. You and family come first! It's great that you like to spend time with them. (Makes me wonder if my kids will - kids nowadays are not so like family friendly to others/elders. Or maybe it's because they are city kids and never got to experience farm/family life).

I've been MIA too with this stupid pneuemonia. I did start this challenge and have glued/inked/glitter pieces sitting. So I just need to put the pieces all together (have no idea what I was thinking 3wks ago).

I do plan on getting this one done! Pneumonia be gone!

Hey girls.

I just want to give you a heads up.

I've just burned both ends of the candle to the middle and it's sputtering protest. I'm battling a nasty case of pneumonia, which is really the last thing I need. I'm just physically exhausted, and I can barely manage to haul my carcass out of bed. The antibiotics are helping, just not fast enough.

So I'm going to take a bit of a break. I'll post the January forum, but don't be surprised if you don't see much of me - I'm just too tired to even THINK creatively right now.

I appreciate your understanding. Love you all! Happy New Year.

Pat, you've had a rough few months lately! Don't worry about us, we all understand. Hopefully the new year will be kinder to you. Take care of yourself!

Thanks, girls. I knew you'd understand.

Here's the January project.

Hopefully I'll feel better soon and will find a way to do this one. I really LOVE the colors!
