HIMCR #131 - Crushed Gray Bay

Hi, all my crafty friends and family!!!!

Is everyone enjoying the few warm days we are getting?  Okay, not exactly warm, but definitely warmer than it has been. Around here the highs had been in the single digits and the lows below 0 . . . so with the past couple days being up in the mid to upper 20s, it almost feels like a heatwave.  But it won't last long because they are saying by Monday the high will be -5 with windchill around -45 . . . BRRRR, I am getting cold just thinking about it.  I think it's time for "Spring Break" . . . don't you agree?  But, while we wait for Spring Break to arrive, let's find something else fun to do?!?!  And what is more fun than a color challenge?

Here it is the 1st Saturday of the month and do you know what that means?  It means it's time for another Hiding In My Craft Room challenge and since it's the 1st Saturday of the month, it means the challenge it a "Color" challenge . . . so this time we challenge you to use Crushed Curry, Basic Grey and Bermuda Bay.  (These are Stampin' Up colors, but you can use any colors close to them.)

We  also have an A-W-E-S-O-M-E sponsor this week --- Scrapbook Stamp Society --- and the winner will receive four (4) digital images from My Besties.  How FUN is that?!?!  So let's get started . . .   

This month Scrapbook Stamp Society gave us several digi images to choose from . . . and, boy, was it hard to choose.  They were all so cute.  But I did end up choosing "Hearts a Flutter".  Here's how my card turned out:

E42, E44, E47 (boy's hair)
YG17 (boy's eyes)
C1, C3, C5 (boy's pants)
C7, C9, 100 (boy's shoes)
Y21, Y26, Y28 (girl's hair)
YG17 (girl's eyes)
BG32, BG34 (girl's dress, shoes, headband & bow)
R32, Y38 (flowers)
E000, E00, E11 (skin)
BG0000, BG000, BG10 (halo effect)

I used "PB&J" paper collection by Basic Grey and some miscellaneous gems for this card.  The banner/pendants are part of a sticker from the sticker sheet in the "PB&J" paper collection.  I know "red" wasn't part of the color choices . . . BUT I used just a tiny bit for that little extra "POP".  Plus, the red paper had blue polka dots on it. :)

Now it is YOUR turn to get your crafty on.  I can hardly wait to see what you come up with for this challenge . . . and to see what each and every one of you come up with this new year.

Till the next time I'm up in the night.  Kathy

PS  Just a quick note, when I was making final touches and double-checking links to this post, the link ( for Scrapbook Stamp Society was not working, so I used a different link provided by HIMCR.  Thanks!!!

This is just packed with gorgeousness and cuteness at the same time. So love the little banner at the bottom.

Awesome job with those colours, I have them and crushed curry is not easy to design with (but I like it) Cute images and beautifully coloured. Yes we came out of the deep freeze on Saturday it made it 2to 0 on our outdoor thermometer, (that's 32 F) a long way from -40 C with the wind chill, it's a good day to stay in and craft.
