"I'm a rainbow today, all the colours of the world!"


"I am red today, hopping mad like a playground ball".  Anyone remember that song by Kira Willey?  It was used in some ad or other, I forget which, but you can hear it here if you're interested - cute song!

This weeks theme on the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is "One colour ... any colour" and to be honest I had a little trouble with it!  I started on it a couple of times and both times I didn't like what I'd done and scrapped them.  "3rd time lucky" they say (or "3rd time's the charm", if you're over the pond) and I am finally happy with this red card!  When I was making it I had a fairground fortune teller's tent in mind, so I hope that comes across a little :)

Last week's cutlery competition - I got no right answers!  Several people guessed Ikea, but I had asked for the person's name, which was Carl-Gustaf Jahnsson.  I feel a bit bad, perhaps it was harder than I thought!  I thought his name would be easily found on the Ikea web site, but maybe my cutlery wasn't easy to pick out on their site, based on my photo, so apologies for that!  I'll have another contest next week and I promise it will be easier!!

Our ever-generous sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering a $50 gift voucher as the prize again this week! The winner will be chosen at random from those who enter the challenge, so why not give it a try? At the very least why not head over to the Challenge Blog to see how the other members of the design team have interpreted this weeks theme! :)

Very clearly a fortune-telling theme Dan. The two faces look so very different just but colouring them the way you have - great piece.

Lovely work. One colour is so difficult to do well but you've managed it here.

This is so weird, I've been thinking of challenging myself to make a card using one colour only & today I visit your blog. Your project is gorgeous, well done for sticking with it.
