Color Throwdown Wednesday!!

Hiya! I'm here for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge! And BOY do I LOVE this week's colors!! Danielle is our hostess and she picked a rockin' set of colors for us this week!

And here's what I made....

I have been WANTING the A Beary Good Year set from The Cat's Pajamas for some time now and I FINALLY treated myself! Yahoooo!!!! I just LOVE Pj the Bear so much. Here I embellished him with a scarf, hat and cup of coffee. After coloring PJ and accessories (paper piecing some parts) I hand cut my snow drift and embossed with a snowflake border. Then I stamped my kraft base with white polkadots, tied on an olive bow embellished with a button and some linen thread ALSO from TCP and can I just say that this is SERIOUSLY the BEST linen thread I have EVER worked with. You MUST own some! And even better is comes in two colors! LOVE!!!

That's pretty much all there is to it gals! It's pretty clean and simple and came together relatively quickly which doesn't happen often for me so YAY! You've got to head on over to the CTD blog where you can read all about playing along with us. AND you've got to check out the blogs of my fellow designers where they have their delicious projects posted for your inspiration.
