Dollie love, with a cherry on top!

Design Dollies' COLOR CHALLENGE - the last one for September! and here's me, crafting madly for both the party i'm attending tomorrow evening (a hostess party - i'm supposed to be unloading my thank you and congrats cards, and maybe some others too if i'm lucky!) and a craft fair in december that will be here far too quickly.

so this week's colours:
Lavender, Tan and Navy

yeah, looks like a toughie, right? but seriously, our Dollies KICKED BUTT on this, and i couldn't be more proud of them! CLICK HERE to see what they did, and prepare to be wowed!

here is my humble little card using these colours (and a piece of BANANA SKIN PAPER - sounds gross, but as long as i don't have to smell it or eat it, i'm happy!):

(i swear, the lined paper and ribbon match, and they're a lovely lavender colour, but they don't photograph well, no matter how hard i try!)

SOOOO, for this one, i used Kazan's sketch #62 (turned sideways) from 2 Sketches 4 You

next, a very big thank you to the lovely REE and the fabby CARLYANN for bestowing upon me the following sweet treat:

GIRLIES, you are both just too sweet, and i am honoured and thrilled to have made your lists! *big squeezes*

so this is the stuff that goes along with the award...

1. Thank the person who gave you the award.
2. Put the Award on your blog.
3. List 3 things you like about yourself.
4. Post a picture you love.
5. Pass this award on to 5 other people.

3. three things i like about myself:
my sense of humour (sometimes cheeky, sometimes a bit dry, occasionally sarcastic, but always on the lighter side!), my love for COLOUR, especially ORANGE (i seldom keep a neutral dress code, hence i often stand out in a crowd - okay so maybe it's not always the clothes...), the fact that i'm a grammar nazi with an extensive, robust vocabulary (many words of which i even invented myself!)
4. a picture i love:

(because little red hens can be SUPER sweet and cuddly - i know this from experience!)
5. 5 people to whom i send this award:
Diana - she's clever, she's crafty, and she's SO gonna have coffee with me someday!
Pinky - she's, well, PINKY! a girl with mad craftin' skillz, and who shares my flair for colour!
Robin - she's "Odd" like me, a Canadian import like me, and she kicks monochromatic butt!
Jan - she persevered, and dude, she makes killer cards! (plus she makes me totally lullz!)
Metal_Minish - mad crafty dude, and i just wanna go shopping with him! (plus he can MIST like there's no tomorrow!)

there ya be!
