HIMCR - #144 Color It

Hi, all my crafty friends and family!!!

Before any of you ask . . . Yes, I do have a new header and personalized signature.  One VERY generous lady from HIMCR offered to make new ones for all of us on the DT.  Now all I need to do is figure out how to get a "reply" option added in my comments so I can reply to each of you here on my blog.  I will figure it out eventually.  :)

Anyway, here it is the 1st Saturday of the 
April . . . and do you know what that means?

Well, first it means that some of our Hiding In My Craft Room DT members have left us . . . which means we have some new members who have such AMAZING talent.  So PLEASE make sure to stop by each of blog today to give them a little lovin' and welcome them to the Hiding In My Craft Room family.  I am sure you will end up loving them as much as I do. :)

It also means that it is time for a new challenge at Hiding In My Craft Room . . .  and since it is the 1st Saturday, it will be a "color it" challenge.  This week the colors will be black and white +1 (meaning black and white plus one more color).  This week's sponsor is Blue Moon Creations Crafting Station (aka Get Inky!).

For this challenge, I chose a cute penguin digi from BMCCS (aka Get Inky!) because I thought he (or she) would be PERFECT with a black/white theme plus one color.  I chose to use papers from The Paper Temptress for this card, too, because I wanted to add a little texture without overpowering the digi image.  Here's how it turned out:

Penguin digi stamp from BMCCS (aka Get Inky!)
Iridescent Cryogen paper from The Paper Temptress (printed image on it & color with Copics)
heart gems from Recollections

If you want more details on the individual papers, click on their names or to go directly to the website, click on The Paper Temptress.

This card turned out so cute that I am going to make a few more along with some Easter cards to send to the local children's hospital . . . there are so many children that don't get anything while in the hospital and I pray one of my cards will bring a smile to their face(s).  If you want more information on how to donate cards, go to Send a Smile 4Kids blog.

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