Hello there!  I hope 2022 is off to a good start for you.  We’ve had some crazy weather here in Virginia.  On January 1, the afternoon temperatures were around 70 degrees Fahrenheit, warm and a little humid.  On January 3, the afternoon temperatures were around 30 degrees and we had almost 8 inches of snow on the ground! 

Now that the holidays are over, it’s time to try to get back into the usual routine with the weekly challenges at CAS Colours & Sketches.  I have decided to take a step back from creating and stay in a more behind-the-scenes administrative role there.  However, in the midst of all the pre-Christmas hustle and bustle, it totally slipped my mind to invite someone to be the January Guest Designer at CC&S.  So I’m going to be joining in the challenges in that capacity this month. 

This week we have a color challenge.  I decided to focus the colors on the sentiment, using a die to cut the word “happy” from cardstock in each color.  I offset the die cuts when I glued them together so that each color would show.  I used the bottom color of the stacked dies for my card base and for the stamped portion of the sentiment.  The focal panel is at an intentional angle to the card base.  I thought it would make it look quirky and fun.  Now I’m wondering if it just looks… crooked.  Oh well.

I hope you’ll stop by the CC&S blog to meet the newest members of our design team and to see what the team has created!  Or, if you’d rather, you can “like” our Facebook page or follow us on Instagram!  We’d love to have you join in the fun and creativity with us.  You have until 6:00 p.m. Eastern U.S. time Monday, January 10 to link your card at our challenge post.
