black and white and _____ all over at Charisma!

your choice, crafty friends! pick one colour to tie into your
gorgeous black and white creations,
and play along with us at Charisma this week!

seriously, your spring creations were unbelievable, people. FANTASTIC. utterly beautiful and awe-inspiring.

now let's see you do something magical with black and white and one other colour. 'cuz i know you can rock it - it's such a CLASSY combo and works great with clean and simple or busy as all get-out!

here's my creation:

lurrrrrve this little Ketto (thanks, Holmes!), and normally i'd add lots of funky, bright colours to her cute outfit, but toned it down a smidgen for the occasion. here she is, up close and personal:

i also kept the colouring simple, knowing that if i brought in some shading, i'd need to add more tones, and i'd probably lose track of the challenge altogether and end up throwing in some teal or orange or sumpin. :) stuck to plain ol' pink and played it safe!

wanna join us?
wanna win goodies from these guys?

SIX digis up for grabs from the DigiStamp Boutique! i have several of their cute images and they're lots of fun to colour, so JOIN IN THE FUN AT CHARISMA (and see what the rest of our amazing Charisma Gals have done with this colour combo!). you have until next Wednesday to play along!

i decided to join in the fun over at Stamptacular Sunday - their challenge is S.O.S. (SomeOne Special!) my someone special is our receptionist at work, Danielle, whose birthday is Friday (we're celebrating Thursday instead as she's taken the day off). this girl is SUCH an inspiration. she's on this NutriSystem diet, has lost SO much weight, is looking fantastic and has the most upbeat, positive attitude. not to mention we're book buddies now - when one of us reads a book, we give it to the other to devour. i've always wanted a book buddy! :D

also playing along at Stamp Something for their Something FUNKY challenge - 'cuz not only is Danielle super funky, but i can't wait until my hair is long and i can do funky stuff to it like this Ketto has - ANNNNND i totally love the funky die-cut flower and leaf that a sweet friend sent me a while back! bold and GROOVY!

off to do some learning, as i've started my first class for my job! it's a 16-week dealio, with a weekly assignment and LOADS of reading, so i hope i can keep up! i have to remind myself that, while the reading will likely be dry and dull, i'm bettering myself and making myself an Invaluable Employee. :)
