#tgifc84 - Color Challenge



            
Another month has begun,
guess that means it's time for some 
COLOR FUN!

Before we get to our designers projects this week - let's give a shout out to our winner of last week's challenge - Nandini from Mumbai, India!

This combo really lends itself to Christmas, but maybe a fun out of the box idea? What do you think?

#tgifc83- Designers Spotlight


I may be totally biased but I think our Team is pretty freaking awesome so I'm excited to
Welcome YOU to this month's Designer Spotlight!

But before we announce which talented gal is up this month let's talk about another AWESOME crafter...Yep the winner of last weeks challenge...drum roll please...
Congrats Elizabeth Gross!

Now its time to honor the Uh Mazing...

http://www.inthecatcave.com/

Let's get to know a little more about Cathy, shall we?!

1. Tell us about yourself: Canadian Mom of two trying very very hard to manage my house operations.  An accountant by day for a family business and crafter by night.  I love everything social media and I try not to sweat the small stuff. Living life in a world of chaos but embracing it all.

2. Three words that describe your style: Clean. Simple. White. Easy.  Yes. Easy.

3. Most awesome crafty moment: Getting selected for the 2013-2014 Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team and getting the cover of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. #blessed #toottoot

4. What 2 Stampin' Up products could you not live with out: Basic Pearls... yeah. Obviously. The Frosty Sequins too but I think the Stitched Dies are going to take the cake... Honourable Mention to the retired banner punch and rotary date stamp, which I will never give up.

5: Share one random fact about you: I really think that the most important question of the day is... "what's for supper"? What exactly does that say about me, I wonder? Huh.


Cathy's Tip of the Day: Keep it simple, silly.  Clean and simple can be as beautiful as multi layers. Don't over think. All you need is a beautiful stamp and a beautiful sentiment.

Ho! for the leaves that eddy down, Crumpled yellow and withered brown, Hither and yonder and up the street And trampled under the passing feet; Swirling, billowing, drifting by, With a whisper soft and a rustling sigh, Starting aloft to windy ways, Telling the coming of bonfire days.
Grace Strickler Dawson
