Designed to Color new INSPIRATION challenge sponsored by Fresh Brewed Designs!

GOOOOOOOD Saturday morning, chickens!  are you suffering heatstroke too?  it's ridiculously hot this week in South Jersey and i wish i had a pool so i could just jump in to cool off.

instead, i'm packing boxes and moving things into my new house and running around like a chicken with my head cut off.  yep.  NEW HOUSE!  so exciting, and can't wait to set up my craft room!

right now, i just want to share the brand new Designed to Color challenge because this is my first one as a member of the GLITTER CREW!  yep.  i've been with them since the magazine kicked off, and now we've started this new chapter for the blog and our challenges, and we have some AMAZING sponsors lined up for you!

our June challenge is sponsored by the super fun and cute Fresh Brewed Designs, who offer THIS little guy:

 cute, right?  that's Squeaker's Ride, and you can get him HERE!

here's the inspiration photo for our challenge:

take anything that inspires you from this photo and CREATE!  all we ask is that you colour an image - after all, we are working with stamps and images that are DESIGNED TO COLOR!  :)  i like the newsprint with the pops of colour, particularly the red and blue...  here's what i did with this one:

so take those patterns from a big room, put 'em down to a smaller scale, and voila!  that's what worked for me.  mostly a CAS kinda card here - Squeaker did all the work for me!  ;)
