Color Dare #221 and a Design Team Call!

Thanks to all the talented crafters who participated in last week's Pomegranate, Saffron, Poppy, New England Ivy and Colonial White challenge. We are so happy to have you sharing your art in our gallery! 

Welcome back to another Color My Heart Color Dare challenge where we invite you to use the specified Close to My Heart colors to create something that you like.  (Of course if you don't have these CTMH colors yet you may substitute similar colors so you can still join in on the fun!)  This week we are challenging you to use all and only these colors:  Goldrush, Poppy, Saffron and Colonial White.



Here is some inspiration from our awesome Design Team.  If you have a chance please stop by our blogs to see how we made these projects and leave a comment.











Before you run off to find out how our Designers made their projects or take out your crafting supplies to get started, I have some exciting news to share with you!  We are ready to add some new Designers to our Color Dare challenge blog!  Is this something that appeals to you?



Would you be excited about:
    -- Using Close to My Heart products in creating on a regular             basis?
    -- Creating one project and posting it to your blog every other week (twice a month)?
    -- Commenting on assigned entry #'s on weeks you submit a         project? (Fellow DT members also appreciate comments)
    -- Voting for favorite entries every week?
    -- Becoming part of our Color Dare DT Facebook group where we plan and communicate with each other?
    -- Donating an occasional "prize" for our monthly prize                   winners?

NO PREVIOUS DESIGN TEAM EXPERIENCE REQUIRED!

If you can say "yes" to all the above then we would love to hear from you.  We are asking for a six month commitment to run from January 2017 to June 2017 which may be extended if you wish to stay longer.

To apply--write DT after your challenge entry AND email Marie (AKA NJ Stamping Queen) at mflayer at comcast dot net.  Applications will close at the end of Color Dare challenge #223 or on December 16, 2016.

Now it's your turn. Take some time this week to create a project using these colors. If you don't have the exact colors, just use the closest ones you have. Next, take a picture of it and upload it to your blog. Make sure you include our link and challenge picture in your post. Then link your post to our site, using the link to your post, not your blog. See our sidebar for complete rules. Most importantly, have fun!  We look forward to visiting your blogs and commenting.

Don’t have a blog?  You can still enter by posting your photo to our Facebook page here.  Next you would copy the URL and then copy that into the Linky tool below.  You could also post your photo in one of your Pinterest boards and then copy and paste the URL into the Linky tool.  If you do post from Facebook or Pinterest please tell how you made your card in the comments section.
