Thinking 0f Our Mothers

Yellow and Orange Craft Challenge Inspiration

Hello friends! How is your October going so far?  It’s bee a bit difficult for me, as I’m suffering from some very bad allergies. However, the weather has been nice, warmer than usual for this time of year, and I’ve been out walking and enjoying the crunch of leaves under my feet, and I am appreciating all the beautiful Fall colours! Today we have a couple of inspiration pieces for you to help inspire your creativity and hopefully entice you to join in our OCTOBER CHALLENGE!  It’s a color challenge, so all you have to do is create something with YELLOW AND ORANGE as your main colours. On a sad note, we are saying goodbye to one of our Design Team members… Gail has to step down from the team for a time, as she is moving…and we all know how much work packing up a house that you’ve lived in for years, involves!  She hopes to be back in the New Year though, as soon as things settle down, so keep your fingers crossed that all …

So sweet in these vibrant yellow and orange hues. Be sure to check out the CHALLENGE PAGE and submit your own creative work! I can’t wait to see what you will do! Have a creative day! Deena
