Happy New Year to all my blogland friends. I hope you had a lovely holiday. I know I did but was disappointed not to accomplish much in the line of crafting. We did spend time with family and friends, which is important and we also started to look for a new car for me, which is also important.
Welcome to the first challenge of 2012 at Phindy's Place. We have decided not to do our first Friday of the month challenge on a regular basis this year but will pop it into the schedule from time to time.
This week we have a color challenge for you and want you to use Brown, Teal, White and Celery or Moss as shown in the following graphic.
You don't have to use a Phindy image in your project but if you do, please follow the instructions on the sidebar and enter your card twice. If you don't have any Phindy images, I encourage you to go over to her store and pick a few up.
We will choose one random winner who will receive a $5 gift certificate to Phindy's store. The Design Team will choose one project as Card of the Week. The creator will also receive a $5 gift certificate to Phindy's store and will be in the running for a monthly Guest Designer spot.
I have used Phindy's Baking Bedlam image and thought she had a bit of a vintage feel to her so I decided to go that direction with my card, especially when I found this gorgeous paper in my stash.
I am going to enter my card in the following challenges:
Inky Impressions - Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
Stamp N Doodle - Anything Goes
Top Tip Tuesday - Anything Goes
TIP: If you want lots of colours of chalk and don't want to spend a fortune then head for your local art supply store and purchase soft pastels. I got a box of 64 soft pastels for the same price as a box of 9 craft chalks would have cost me at a chain craft supply store. Use a Q-Tip or cotton ball to apply.
