Week Thirteen - Orange, Green and Brown......

Good morning everyone and welcome to Colour Create!

Wow! 132 entries for last week's challenge!! I think that has to be a record! There were some truly stunning creations and you seemed to enjoy going a bit dotty too.

It gives me great pleasure to announce that the winner of last week's prize is Suzette. Well done to you! Please contact me via Happily Ever Crafting and I will let you know how to claim your digi images.

I'm also very happy to announce that our guest designer for May is Juliet and you will be able to see her first creation next week. Thanks for agreeing to join us for our first monthly guest spot Juliet!

This week's challenge has been created by our lovely Jo. It's a real pleasure having Jo on the team as she is such a positive person and really enjoys everything she does. She makes the most amazing cards and has such a range of skills, so please hop over and take a look at some of her work as you won't be disappointed. Can you believe Jo also likes making cards for men? I know....... she's a rare species, lol!

Here is your colour combination then:















For this week's extra option we would like you to make a card for a man, but please remember that this is not compulsory.



GOOD LUCK!!!

Week Twelve - Black, White and Pink......

Good morning everyone!

We hope you have had a wonderful Easter and have enjoyed munching all that choc, hee hee!

Welcome back to Colour Create - we hope you are raring to go with another challenge. It's so much fun to hop over to your blogs and see your amazing creations, so keep 'em coming.

We will be deciding this week who to ask as our guest designer for May - a tough choice with so many wonderful crafters to choose from ;o)

Before moving on to the details of this week's challenge I would just like to wish our Design Team member Kim a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY for today!


This week's challenge has been created by our lovely Chris. She is one very talented lady and I'm sure many of you will be familiar with her beautiful creations. Not only does she make wonderful cards and gifts, but Chris also has her own range of digi images, which leads me on nicely to our prize this week. As Chris has chosen the colours and theme for the challenge she has decided to offer two free digi purchases to one lucky participant. All we ask is that you do not combine our challenge with any other for this week if you would like to be entered into the prize draw! The winner will be contacted next Sunday and can then hop over to Chris's digi shop to choose something yummy. If you click on the banner on our sidebar you will be able to look at what Chris has designed so far. Thanks for your generosity Chris ;o)

Here is your colour combination then:













For this week's extra option we would like you to add some sort of Polka Dot design to your creations, but please remember that this is not compulsory.



GOOD LUCK!!!

Week Eleven - Chocolate, Coffee and Cream........

Hello folks.......... are you still with us under your chocolate mountains?!

We've really enjoyed all your beautiful creations again this week and it has been a lot of fun visiting you all! Thank you so much for supporting us again, it really does mean so much and I know I speak for all of the Design Team when I say we are becoming quite a little family with so many regulars returning week after week.

Before we move on to the details of this week's challenge I would like to tell you that we are on the look out for monthly guest designers from now on and will start with a new guest for the month of May. We will assume that you all want to be entered into the draw for this unless you mention otherwise in the comments box at the bottom of this post.


This week's challenge has been created by our very own Tab. I know you will agree that Tab makes the most wonderful cards and that her use of colours and stitching is amazing! I always feel that you can tell Tab's cards before looking at the name as she has a unique style and is very much a trendsetter with her creations too. You will always find oodles of inspiration on Tab's blog and very often a funny tale or two! I must let you into a little secret and I know Tab won't mind me sharing this with you........ the inspiration for her colour choice came from her lounge wallpaper and that is the picture you have before you today!!!

Here is your colour combination then:











For this week's extra option we would like you to add some distressing to your creations, but please remember that this is not compulsory.

We are delighted to introduce this week's guest designer Di, it is a real pleasure to have her joining us for this week's challenge.


GOOD LUCK!!!
