Just Us Girls Color Challenge


Happy Saturday...it's time for another challenge at Just Us Girls and this week is my first official time hosting the fabulous ladies over at Just Us Girls.  We have a color challenge for you!  You can finish up your Christmas cards with this combo or if you're done with your cards work on a tag or two...  The color combo is right up the holiday alley:  Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Kraft and/or White!  Feel free to use variations on these shades too!  For my card, I used the WPlus9 Winter Wishes set; this is my first of many cards that I'm sure I'll make with it!  Love the sweet little mittens and medallion images.

I hope the color combo inspires you!  We'd love for you to play along...please stop by and check out the gorgeous creations from the other design team members!

Oh, what a fun and cute card! Thanks for the awesome challenge colors too, I have lots more to do for the holidays, too bad you couldn't have thrown in a few extra hours too with it! Love those mittens too.

woohoo on your first colour challenge!! And what a yummy one it is! LOVE those sweet little mittens and had to laugh because Aimes' card arrived yesterday with these little mittens (red with a white maple leaf on them). They are just adorable! Ah, slept in and am enjoying a quiet coffee. I must say our neighbourhood is very quiet and there's a bit of snow on the trees and hills around us...very beautiful. Off to get our tree today and maybe do some shopping tonight :) Hugs!

I love these little mittens and the white string-remember those that we had when at school attached like these that went inside your coat so you didn't lose your gloves? I got a fun set last year as I always lose gloves! The snowflake paper is perfect for the colour combo x

Lynn, where was this card when I was looking for inspiration for those cute mittens? Love it--especially the way you tucked the medallion behind the border and stamped the sentiment along the edge.
