FFC09 - Colour Challenge

ETA: Yes, ladies, this challenge is finished on June 5th, *not* May 22! I copied and pasted and then didn't change the date. My bad!

Welcome back to a new challenge here at Festive Friday! We were excited to see so many wonderful entries into our last challenge, it was harder than ever to choose our favourites. But we did it, and today we have some more shout outs from our "Sweet" trigger challenge, as well as our winner! Let's get to it...

Shout Outs

We loved Maureen's simple layout with candy flavoured patterned paper along with her very sweet font used for the sentiment!

We loved Lisa's simple colour scheme and lovely layout, and the gingerbread man fit our trigger perfectly!

We adored Barbara's soft colour scheme, her fun layout, and the adorable gingerbread house was the perfect focal point!


Our favourite part of Debbie's card is her adorable chenille candy cane in non-traditional colours, not to mention all the beautiful layers and patterns she included!

Congratulations ladies! Please contact Meredith at for your blog badges!

This week, it's time for another Colour Challenge. We have quite a traditional theme for you this time around. Here is the graphic:

We have a few members taking this week off, so Geri and Meredith are sharing some inspiration this week for you, and the rest of the girls will be here next week with lots more!


And this week, we are so thrilled and honoured to be joined by our guest designer, Dawn Wholeslagle, from WPlus9 Stamps. Our team has used some of Dawn's beautiful products in our projects this week, as well!

Dawn Woleslagle is the owner of Wplus9 Design Studio, but more importantly, she is a crafting enthusiast just like you.  A wife, and mother of two boys, she juggles the daily grind of work and family while trying to steal bits and pieces of "me" time. That "me" time is most often spent in her craft room, illustrating, cooking, or creating anything with her hands.

And here is Dawn's fun creation using this week's colours:

Now that you've seen what we did with the trigger, it's your turn! Create any holiday themed project based on the trigger word and link us up below! You can combine our challenge with your other favourite challenges, and enter as many times as you like. This challenge will run until June 5, 2013 at 11:59PST. 

***Please remember to link up your actual blog post and not just your blog address!***

***As it takes time for our designers to visit your blog, please consider shutting off your captcha so that we might be able to more easily leave you some love!***

2013 Festive Friday Grand Prize! 
We want to give you even more incentive to stay on top of your holiday card stash, and we also want to encourage you to continue playing with us! Our last challenge will launch in the middle of November, and at that time, we will be offering a $40 Gift Certificate to one of three online shops to one lucky player who has participated in 15 or more of our challenges! Keep the images of your entries handy - you'll need them!

Congratulations to the winners and shoutouts! Love the new challenge - traditional colours and the inspiration cards are beautiful.

I assume the challenge ends on 5th June and not 22nd May as in the blog! Oops!
