Colour Us... Thankful!

**To see the current challenge, please click here or scroll down**

As mentioned on Wednesday, Hayley and I wanted to thank our inaugural designers (Design Team #1) in a special way. Each of these ladies (as well as the 6 Featured Designers we have had over the past 6 months) has helped shaped Colour Me...! into what it is today. 

We each CASEd two Design Team member cards from previous challenges to honour them and thank them for their tremendous contribution. 


Tara CASEing Brenda

Tara ~ Brenda, I have loved every second of you being on the team. Your cards are always so rich and   full of life and love. Your clean style and your attention to detail had me waiting anxiously each week to see what you'd surprise us with. Thank you for your hard work and commitment over the past 6 months and I can't wait to see what you create next! 

Hayley ~ So beyond thrilled to have had you as part of our inaugural team at Colour Me...! It has been so much fun to be inspired by the FABulous creations you bring to the table each week. Your style is so layered and clean which I LOVE. Keep getting craft and I sure hope to see you in the gallery when you have time to play along xo

Hayley CASEing Katie

Hayley ~ Honestly could you be any sweeter if you tried? One super talented and crafty mama for sure. It has been a pleasure to have you on our inaugural team at Colour Me...! I adore your sweet sassy creations and have a file that I have created to CASE a few more of your creations hehehe :) Sure look forward to having you play along with us in the coming months xo

Tara ~ Katie, you're an absolute gem! Your cards are so full of personality and character. Every single one of them has made me smile. You have been such a special part of the team and I'm going to miss your 'punny' creations and fun style. Thank you for your energy and enthusiasm the past 6 months!

Tara CASEing Rosemary

Tara ~ Rosemary, you DO rock! Your style is so unique and inspiring. It was almost impossible to try and narrow it down to one card to CASE, and an absolute pleasure to browse through your creations the past 6 months. You are a constant inspiration and I sure hope we see more of your cards in the gallery in the future. Thank you for your dedication to the team! 

Hayley ~ Creativity out the wazoooo does not come close to touching on your skills Rosemary. It has been a pleasure having you on our inaugural team at Colour Me...! Your cool, clean, creative style is an inspiration for sure :) Please say you will play along with us when you can xo

Hayley ~ All the way over the pond you came to join the fun with us on our inaugural team at Colour Me...! and we were super jazzed! Your funky style was a breath of fresh air for us each week. Never sticking to one style kept us guessing and we were never disappointed with your delightful creations! Come back and see us when you can xo

Tara ~ Sam, your style and sense of humour were the highlight of my Wednesdays. What a joy to have you on our team!  I am always amazed by your creativity and eye for design - from clean-and-simple to flourishing and full of detail! I sincerely hope we'll get to see more of your fabulousness in the gallery :) Thank you for being a part of this team the past 6 months!

And a big 'hip hip hooray' for our Featured Designers!
