Little Red Wagon Challenge #274 ~ Winter Blues

Good Wednesday morning (again)!  It seems like the only time I am posting is Wednesdays.  I will try to change that.

But, in the meantime, it is time for a new challenge at Little Red Wagon.  Our hostess this week is Tracy and her challenge is WINTER BLUES ~ use mostly blue on your card or project.  What a better time than Winter to use the cool colour of blue.

Lately I had made a few mostly blue cards so I decided to take this one in a different direction.  I looked up the colour teal to see if it was blue or green.  Here's the result I got:

 "Teal is a low-saturated colour, a greenish-to dark medium, similar to medium green and dark cyan.  It can be created by mixing green with blue into  white base, or deepened as need with a little bit of black or gray colour" (Wikipedia)

So, since that was pretty inconclusive and most answers were it is both, I chose to use it as teal BLUE and made my card with shades of teal.

Little Red Wagon Challenge #273 ~ SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

Hello there.  Wow, the weeks are just flying by.  I can not believe we are into the third week of January already.  That also means Winter and the cold are going fast for those of you that don't like it ~ I myself, enjoy the Winter but don't necessarily want to prolong it either.  Okay, enough chit chat.  Let's get down to the reason you are all here.

 It is Wednesday again and time for the weekly challenge at Little Red Wagon.  Our hostess for this week is Jan and she wants us to be SHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! ~ use no words, no letters and no text at all on your project.  Sounds easy, right?  If you are used to putting some kind of sentiment on your cards, it is not as easy as it sounds.  I had to really think about it.

I decided to use one of the larger stamps I had purchased a while ago (like years truthfully), coloured it up with my Copics and made it the focal point of my note card.  And I even left the inside blank leaving lots of space to write a true, old fashioned note and send it by snail mail.  Now just to figure out whom to send it to.

There are two Facebook pages you need to like: Little Red Wagon for our weekly challenge updates and keeping up with our girlfriends and Princess Paper Projects, where I share all of the creative things in my life, not on my personal page so you may be missing them.  Sometimes there are contests and I always want to see what you are working on.  

Thanks for dropping in today.  Come by and check out what all the other girlfriends have done and  link up your SHHH!!! project this week at Little Red Wagon.  Looking forward to seeing them all.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday.
