Raise The Bar - Color Me Happy!

"HAPPY" Friday to you ALL!!

Yes, here we are at the end of another work week again!  And that means it's time for another RAISE THE BAR CHALLENGE!!  Today our theme is "COLOR ME HAPPY!"  That's right  ... create a card/project using YOUR favorite color (one please, in different hues, plus neutrals).

Anyone who knows me knows my favorite color is PURPLE ... ANY shade of purple!!   I have loved this color since I was a little girl ... don't ask me why??    As a young adult I joined a bowling team ... guess what color my bowling ball is ... YEP ... PURPLE!    As a matter of fact, I repainted my kitchen last year ... guess what color ... YEP ... PURPLE!!  Do you remember??  I shared pictures with you, LOL!!!  Call me crazy ... but it makes me happy!
For my creation today, I have used designer paper from the Basic Grey WISTERIA collection along with Lovely Lilac cardstock for my accent shade.  Here are the deets on this card:
Stamps:  The Stamp Pad Co., Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous
Papers:  Whisper White, Lovely Lilac, Basic Grey Wisteria dp
Inks:  White craft, Rich Razzleberry
Accessories:  Nestabilities classic & scallop ovals, Offray satin ribbon, White Gelly Roll Pen
Technique:  Faux Stitching

Now it's time for you to show us YOUR FAVORITE COLOR.  Please come join in on the fun!  Don't forget to check out my co-design team members for more fun & inspiration.  You can find links to their blogs on my sidebar. 

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!  I am having a few stamping friends over today for a "PLAY DAY" and then this evening we are going to granddaughter, Morgan's TALENT SHOW.  She graduates from high school next month then begins college in the fall and will be studying Speech Pathology/Audiology.  For her talent in the show, she has designed a PowerPoint presentation to the song "IMAGINE" and will be "signing" the words.  I can't wait to see it ... she signs so well and it just fascinates me!!
