I decided to make the first color challenge of 2007 nice and easy. I am using one of my favorites from the last few months. I have one card on here already with it. I thought to start the new year off right, we should have an easy combo so we can all feel accomplished right away!

You can view color challenges, specifically this one, here. The gallery for them can be found here.


This is the other one I had already done with these colors. Of course, I used paisley, paper piercing and a scalloped punch……cause I don’t think I can make a card with out them! Oh, and dimensionals too! I had to use my coluzzle to get the circles the right size. On the card with the white base….I arranged the circles so I could do it with just punches instead. I knew I’d be doing that card in bulk and I didn’t want to do that many circles with the coluzzle, as it is time consuming. I love the 2 way glue with Dazzling Diamonds glitter on the penguin’s belly. It is so sparkly and just the right accent for that little guy.

The white base version will be perfect with “thanks” stamped across the bottom. I will send those as Thank You’s for Alex’s 5th birthday party next week. He loves penguins, so it really fits him.

Anyway, I hope this challenge helps you start off the new year with something you are proud of!

And a huge thank you to those of you that posted regarding my killer cold. I am feeling much better and am hopefully on the mend. Now I have to workout for the first time in two weeks, I may not be feeling so great after that!!
