Anita Bowden

Hi there, my name is Anita and I live in a coastal town in South Devon, in the south west of England.  I have a full-time job as an Audio Secretary and in my spare time I love to get creative and find some escapism in cardmaking.  I've always been very creative, with cross-stitch being an early addiction, and then in about 2005 I bought myself a cardmaking kit and was hooked.  About two years ago I discovered some fantastic blogs I saw advertised in a craft magazine and these inspired me to create my own blog, 'Neet & Crafty'.  I've learned so much from my friends in blogland and my stash has now transformed to consist mainly of stamps.  I just love stamps and ink, and my other favourite item is my Big Shot, I don't know how I managed without it!  I'm so inspired by challenge blogs, whether it be a cue word, colour combo or sketch, they are great to get your creative mojo moving.  They really do challenge you to try new techniques, and use colour palettes you would never think of putting together. 

I would like to say a huge thank you to Hayley and Tara for inviting me to be a Guest Designer at Colour Me...! for the month of November.  To work alongside this awesome team is an absolute honour.

Top Picks for CMCC#44!

Wow, thank you to everyone who played along with us this week! How do you like picking which colour combo to use? Nice to see some of you playing along with both as well! :)

It's time to check out this week's Captivators (that's right, two!) as chose by Hayley and Tara!


Shanna Gaff

Hayley's Pick: Once November rolls around I can really allow myself to go nuts with the Christmas season and I would have to say Christmas cards are my favourite to create. I am always so envious of those adventurous crafters who step outside the traditional colour palates. Shanna did just that this week and totally rocked it with her gorgeous shaker card! Congrats, beautiful job!!!


Allison Kostiuk

Tara's Pick: I just love Allie's super sweet pink sleigh, especially with the addition of the little jingle bells. I absolutely adore the sentiment as well! The fun music note embossing in the background is such a wonderful touch. Great card, Allie - Congratulations!
