    Challenge Day!! #194

    Global Design Project Challenge Day!! WooHoo, can you tell I was feeling patriotic? This week is a sketch challenge.. here was the inspiration. Remember yesterdays post?? The jar was coloring one of today’s ribbon. Did you know that with an ink refill some water and either Whisper White Twine (124262) or Polka Dot Tulle (146912) ribbon you can make it ANY color you need?? Ohhhh, I just realized that there is one more still to try… Whisper White Flax Ribbon… Check back next week for that! Lovely Lipstick, Whisper White and Blueberry Bushel are what created the red/white/blue.. or this could also be a nod to Firefighters and Police too..…
