Hello Belles 'n Whistles Fans, Iris here! I hope you all had a fab weekend and are ready for our new challenge starting today! I'll go easy on you so I let you decide what colors you want to use... Pick your Favorite Color / Color Combination for your challenge project! Use one color or several, whatever your favorite is! Looking forward to see all the beautiful color combinations!

A little Reminder: Use your favorite Elisabeth Bell Designed Stamp, whether it's from Belles 'n Whistles, or any other Elisabeth Bell designed stamp. Remember, if you are using a stamp from Belles 'n Whistles, then you can enter your card/project in the BnW Gallery, for a 2nd entry into the drawing. Upload your card/project HERELook for this weeks Challenge under "Current Challenges".  
  
And here is my challenge creation. I decided to go with a brown-black combo for my 'spooktacular' card ;-).  The sweet image is called Little Witch with Broom and availabe in the Belles 'n Whistles store.


And  here are the stunning creations from my DT sisters and our GD's:

A Color Challenge...

Hellooooooooo.....  Lynda here, with a brand new challenge, and not only that, it's a brand new month too...   It's hard to believe it's September already.  I was just sitting at the table, and looking out at the trees.  You know how it goes when you end up getting lost in thought?  Well our leaves are already starting to change colors here in NY.  Part of that may be due to our crazy storms that we've been hit with.  It's been quite an eventful 2 weeks here.  First Hurricane Irene hits us hard... Then the following week, a Tornato touches down, destroying a nearby town.  And then a few days after that, more rain, rain, rain....  I actually left work early on Wednesday, for fear of being stranded.  Then Thursday "A State of Emergency" no road travel was allowed....  CRAZY I TELL YOU!!!! 

Alrighty, you're here for a challenge, right?  Well a challenge is just what I have for you.  This week, I've chosen to do a color challenge, it seems it's been a little while since we've done one of those....  So here we go.... 


What do you think?  Pretty Primary, but I've seen some beautiful things using these colors, and just had to challenge you all to give it a try as well. 

Remember: Use your favorite Elisabeth Bell Designed Stamp, whether it's from Belles 'n Whistles, or any other companies that sell Elisabeth Bell stamps. If you are using a stamp from Belles 'n Whistles - then you can enter your card/project in the BnW Gallery, for a 2nd entry into the drawing. Upload your card/project in the right here - Belles Photo Gallery.   Look for this weeks Challenge under "Current Challenges". 

Here is what I created with these primary colors....  I have to say that I am absolutely IN LOVE with the outcome. 






This is what our Guest DT and DT ladies did for this weeks color challenge:

That's all from the DT this week.  We hope that you'll find some time to join in, and come play along with us.  I can't wait to see what beautiful things you'll create using these fun colors.
