March 2018 - Wrapping in Color Challenge

Kimberly Stewart

Designing Ninjas
Again, I must apologize for being late this month. Between the flu, having my pc go down and medical issues with other members of the family. I am going to do my best to get ahead this month because at the end of this month, Eric, my other half, is having his foot and part of his leg amputated.

Now, before there are a bunch of questions let me try to shorten his story. He had an accident 25 years ago with his left foot/ankle and shin. He had muscle and skin grafts just so that he could keep the foot. But after 25 years, he is in severe pain all of the time and it causes a major limp that also creates many other issues for him. He asked for this amputation and has had 25 years to think about it. He is already making jokes about his socks lasting twice as long and looking forward to coming up with Halloween costumes. So we are ready for this and think that we are prepared for it.

Your challenge, should you accept it:

1. Use at least 3 of the 6 colors that I’ve provided; they do not have to be exact.

2. Create a new, colorful work of art (layout, card, ATC, hybrid project, mini kit to share with us, etc.) for this challenge only.

3. Use the color swatch to mix and match from your stash and/or the PDW store!

4. Post your fabulous creation in the Wrapping in Color Challenge Gallery here by Midnight EST, on Saturday, March 31st.

5. Be sure to come back to this thread and leave us a link to your masterpiece so that we can all leave you some love and so that I can be sure to get the posting gift to you!

Here are the colors for March:


For accepting this challenge, you will receive this posting gift:


The posting gift will be PM’d to you on Thursday, April 1st by me!
