Mo's Challenge # 132



Favorite Color Combination


That's Mo's Challenge for this week....use your favorite colors on your card or project using one of Mo's fantastic images!


I used  one of my many favorite combinations...shades of pinks and greens! I also love red and brown, blue and yellow, and  orange, pink and yellow, and the list goes on! When it comes down to it, I just love color! That's probably one of the main reasons I love paper crafting!

Tools: Copics, Sewing machine, Mounting tape, Glue dots
Papers: SU! Melon Mambo, Certainly Celery, Vanilla, Neenah smooth white, Basic Grey DP 
Embellishments: Satin Ribbon, Beads, Charm, Heart brad, Daisy trim
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I'm into babies at the moment! Our newest granddaughter was born at 3:06 AM on Tuesday ! We were able to see her just minutes later when we joined our youngest son and his wife in the delivery room. 
Here is a picture of the new family.
 

Her name is Maleah Keegan. Her first name is a variation of a Hawaiian name in honor of my husband, who was born on Oahu. Her middle name,  Keegan, was the name of my son and daughter-in-law's dear friend, best man at their wedding, and the one who introduced them four years ago, who died tragically at the age of 32 from  complications of  chemotherapy treatments for Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He will always be in their hearts.

I hope you'll join us this week and enter Mo's Challenge using one of Mo's images and your favorite colors on a card or project. We'll be looking forward to seeing what you create!

I love it when you drop by!
