Colorful Saturday Challenge October 5, 2013

Good day today,
We got a lot of snow but not as much as north of here, but the winter wind is here.  I hate the winter wind. It blows and blows and blows, broken doors, fences, mail ripped out of your hands everything heading to Nebraska.  Oh Well winter is here.

Today is also National Cardmaking Day.  So instead of sitting out in the wind I have been making some cards.  You will see one today and a few later on. I hope you are all making cards today or at least enjoying them.  When I am done here I am going to make a few quick and easy Christmas Cards. So let's get on with it.

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.

Today's Colors are two we have seen before with another color now they have to stand on their own and they do very nicely.

Here are the Colors
I really like Coastal Cabana and it goes great with my favorite orange Pumpkin Pie.  Right now I really wish I had a Pumpkin Pie not just the ink.  Here are my two projects for the Challenge.

Since Halloween is coming and it is my favorite Holiday I had to make a card using my Pumpkin Pie I think it came out really well.  I like the embossed spiders They come from the new Bite Me Photo Polymer Set

This Thank you may have seen before I made a lot of these.  I have a video on There's A Card Thursday on it. Click here to see it.  I really love this set,  I especially love the Big Thank You.  So elegant and it makes the whole card.
