Exciting News!!!

Guess who the new Guest Designer is for The Color Throwdown?  Yep you got it, me!  I'm so excited and honored to have been asked to design cards and projects for the next month and a half along with the talented women from The Color Throwdown. 
So without further ado onto the cards, yes that's right I created two cards because these colors were so fun to play with and I hope you'll play along too.  The first card I have uses the stamp sets On a Pedestal and A Word for You.  I'm going to try and stock up on birthday cards so I'm ready for some of next years birthdays when they come around instead of being last minute {OK I said try}.

Check out these great colors for The Color Throwdown:

For this next card I used the fun colors from the challenge and the Two Step Owl punch as well as the stamp set Curly Cute.  These owls crack me up every time I see them!

For all the details on how to play along, visit The Color Throwdown site.
And be sure to check out what the other design team members have created using the colors for this week:

Barbara Anders - Paper Pursuits
Broni Holcombe - Splashes of Watercolor
Danielle Kennedy - Wild Dragonfly Designs
LeAnne Pugliese - Wee Inklings
Tammy Hershberger - Stamp Happy
Kristin Beuter - Mindless Creativity
Laura Pryor - Lil' Inker Designs

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Great job with the color challenge and congrats on your DT pick. I really like the way you positioned the owl's eyes and added a heart to show emotion to the other owl. Very clever!

Congrats on your guest spot! Love the cards. I'm so jealous you have the SU owl punch. I have it on my X-mas list so I guess I'll have to wait.

So glad you joined us this month! I have to tell you that as soon as I saw your photo I thought, wow, she looks familiar! Then I noticed you are in Michigan. I'm from Michigan, so now I'm trying to convince myself I know you :O) LOL Probably just a co-inky-dink ;]
