CSS Color Challenge

Welcome to another CSS blog hop. This time we were challenged to create a project with the color challenge going on right now over at StampTV. So you can play along and have a chance to win a free stamp set. You can find all the details right here.

If you started from the beginning of this hop you just came from Lori's blog. If not you will want to make sure you hop through every blog by starting at StampTV. You will be completely inspired to get out your stamps and get creative.

Initially when I looked at this color combo I thought it would be great for a masculine card. But when I went into my studio to create, I decided to use one of the stamp sets that were already laying on my desk. Nana's Needlework and Nana's Needlework Sentiments won out. I kept it simple with no coloring. I hardly ever do that.





Now it is time to head over to see what Miesje has to share with you.

And you won't want to miss all the fun stuff going on at StampTV. Gina her team are celebrating two years with StampTV. She has been sharing peeks. Oh boy, I am loving the peeks of the two sets that will be free with purchases during the next release. You better make sure you check it out.

Finally, don't forget to turn your clocks up an hour. That means spring is on the way.
