CR84FN...A New Color Challenge Blog 78

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, January 1, 2011 @ 11:50 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! I have some very exciting news to share with you today! With A LOT of encouragement from several sweet blogging friends and endless of hours of tech support from my DH Scott, I have relocated my weekly CR84FN color challenge to it's very own site and have chosen a DT to help me inspire you with weekly creations :) I hope you all visit both the CR84FN see what all the DT girls have created as well as their individual sites for inspiration!

This is a long post so let's get started: First, I must announce the randomly chosen winner for my give away is:
KimCreate said... Hi Mona, love your pink and grey card! Nice little Valentine giveaway. I will valentines for my husband and 2 daughters.
Kim

Kim, please email me your address so I can ship your gift to you :)

Now I would like to introduce you to the UBER talented CR84FN DT:

Thank you ladies for joining me in this fun fulled papercrafting journey :)

On to the randomly selected participant for the CR84FN10 Guest Designer spot is:
 Betty, I would be honored if you would join along as the Guest for the CR84FN10 challenge.
Next, I would like to introduce you to this week's Guest Designer:
You can see all of Gladys wonderful creations at mypapercrafting.
Gladys made this gorgeous card displaying a darling banner on her New Year's celebration card. Thank you so much Gladys for joining myself & the CR84FN DT with this week's challenge... I hope you all visit Glady's blog: mypapercrafting for complete details and to share some love :)

Here is my interpretation:
I was so inspired by the beautiful BINGO card/envelope shared on the Melissa Frances blog that I wanted to create my own as an envelope to stuff with a Valentine for my sweetie and a lil' treat :) I inked up an image from Wanda's Pantry then using a S4-190 Labels Four die template to cut/emboss the image, creating a gorgeous label. I combined various Pink Paislee DP with many of my other favorite goodies.
That's all I have for today. Thanks so much for looking and I sure hope you hop on over to visit this week's Guest Designer: Gladys, and the CR84FN DT: Sue, Suzanne, Heather, Lisa, Deborah, Meredith, Stephanie and Andrea for some awesome inspiration!
