Blogger's Challenge Week #22


Sorry I'm posting late...I finally finished my Display Maker projects yesterday, photographed them and MAILED them out! I'm so excited to be done. This has been a HUGE undertaking! Although I love the creation and design process...doing so many in just a few weeks is exhausting! I spent the rest of yesterday re-charging my "batteries" and anxiously watching the LSU/Arkansas game! Because we are HUGE Ohio State University fans, we were wanting LSU knocked off...and they did lose! That moves us one step closer to playing in the Championship game.

Anyway...this week's Blogger's challenge was to find something that inspires you. Again, the Pier One catalog appeared in my mailbox and I flipped through to find this awesome holiday display! To me the colors are represented by Stampin' Up!'s Gable Green, Tempting Turquoise and Wild Wasabi with metallic gold accents. Very FRESH! And, have you seen the colored Christmas trees in the stores? Almost every color! I love this Turquoise tree! Hard to see in this picture, but the circles along the left all sparkle with Irridescent Ice EP, along with the garland and centers of the tree. The star is punched from Brushed Gold cardstock. It is a very unusual colored holiday card! Enjoy!

Hope you all had a very Happy Thanksgiving! Ours was wonderful...
