"First Friday" Colour Combo1
Happy New Year!
We're back after out Christmas Break and raring to go with lots of lovely new dares to challenge you. A huge thank you to everyone who joined in with Keilly's "Spots and Stripes" challenge - the cards were wonderful (as always) and entries have just kept on coming!
This week we have the very first in our brand new "First Friday" series. Over the last couple of years we've used Birthstones and Flowers for these challenges,and they've both been interesting and inspiring themes to work with.
For 2012 the First Friday of each month will feature a
Colour Combo Challenge
It should be fun - we're all taking a turn at choosing a combination of colours to base our card-making around so there should be a fab variety of hues and tones to get us creating. We hope you'll enjoy the idea and feel inspired to join in with us.

We're really looking forward to seeing what you create using these wonderful colours, so please come back and leave your link (and a comment would be nice too) when you are ready to share.
