Colorful Saturday Challenge October 12, 2013

Good Evening,  I know this is late but so many things going on this weekend.
Meigan turned 14 on Thursday but we had the Family celebration on Friday.  I had my first craft fair today, so as usual I had to get things ready.  You would think I would have this down pat but this first show is usually oh I forgot that, I should have brought those, etc.  Well I got through it.

I also have been asked by some folks to put my Christmas Cards up on my blog. I do custom orders and folks have been wanting to see them so you will notice another Tab called Cards for sale.  If you would like to order any handmade Christmas Cards you can look at them there.

I am also putting together a page of everything that Stampin' Up! sells that is not in the Catalog.  That maybe a long time, getting that updated.  Hopefully by next weekend that will be finished.

So let's get on to Colorful Saturday Challenge.

Every Saturday I will choose a Color Combo from either the Annual Catalog or the current mini catalog.  I will make two cards or projects using that color combination. I then challenge you to make at least one card or project using that color combo and post a link in the comments section to either your blog post on the challenge or your pinterest photo.  
Thanks for playing.

So let’s see what this week’s colors are?

I really am intrigued by Summer Starfruit.  It takes on colors around it.  So I like to see what it looks like with other colors, sometimes it is more green, some times more yellow and at times I get a hint of blue.  So let's see what colors it looks like now.

 To me this one in real life looks yellow.  I think it takes it from the Designer Series paper.
