Color Combo @ Christmas Card Challenges

Mornings all :) 
It is that time ... time for a new challenge at 

This week the challenge is ... 
A Color Combo
Orange, Yellow, Blue & Ivory

I had fun playing with this one and struggled at first to bring all the colors together but I got there in the end :))

I still have rubon's left over!  And this is another from the already opened packet.  Seriously these things are never ending! Specially as I made the pact and personal challenge to myself to use them all (why oh why do I do things like that lol)  It is great to be using them all up and not just taking the favorites from the pack and hiding the rest in the back of the cupboard.  I raided the Prima flower box for the flower and the bling and while I was up, got a snippet of lace to place behind the flower, to me, it just kind of softened the piece.   All the papers I pulled together from my scraps stash, and it is in need of another workout!

Anyways, I have not planned on staying long with you all today.  Mojo is working like magic of late and I hate to leave him waiting (he may escape on me!) So I am off to hid in my craftroom.

Please do come along and join the challenge with us at

I hope I see you there :)
