Blogger's Challenge



this week I am actually posting on time!! The challenge this week is to use the following colors: old olive, rose red, taken with teal and pumpkin together. I thought what an odd combination but when I pulled the colors out I really like them together. That's what is great about this group. It pushes you out of your box...




I used the new Boho Background set. I love the circle and the way that it fits into the scallop punch. And of course how you can layer the pieces of it with different colors! I can't wait to see what everyone else did too!
I couldn't resist this picture. This is my neice and nephew. It is great being an Aunt. I get to play with them and give them back! Emily took the picture when she was babysitting them this week. Hannah is 4 1/2 and Adam is 20 months.

Have a great weekend!

That color combo on your card looks great. I don't know why the colors on my card just don't draw me in like the colors on the cards I'm seeing. I guess the predominance of one of the colors? Hmmm! Great card, love the circle dynamic of it.

Great card Marilyn! I keep putting that set on my order and then taking it back off again! I so want it but keep finding things I want just a little bit more, lol. I love the circles, they are just so in right now. And of course the niece and nephew are darling too!

OH Marilyn...I think we were roomies at convention back in 2002 w/Joanne. Boy, did I find you by accident. I still have a X-Mas card or 2 from you.
