Happy Birthday COLOUR CREATE !

Whooo hoooo can you believe it's one whole year since the Colour Create Challenge started ? Amazing how the time flies by !

To celebrate we have some amazing prizes for you from our sponsors Michelle's Scrapbooking and Whimsey Stamps and Michelle is also giving our blog readers 10% off total purchases in her store (check out the Colour Create Challenge Blog to find out how to claim this discount).

We are also offering two lucky entrants a 2 month GDT place - just make sure you put GDT after your name in Mr Linky if you wish to enter this part of the prize draw !

Last but not least, some of the DT are offering birthday candy on their blogs to celebrate ! Make sure you visit us all to find it !

Here is the birthday candy I am offering :

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning this candy is comment in the comment's box below - simples ! I will then draw a winner when our next Colour Create Challenge is announced on 25th February.

To be in with a chance of winning the other prizes on offer, you need to take part in this fortnight's challenge over at the Colour Create Challenge Blog.

Now this fortnight's challenge ! The colour combo is red white/off white, chocolate and pink and here is the photo for your inspiration

The option extras are silver and hearts.

All the card I used is from Elzybells. Elizbeth has just started selling a co-ordinates range which includes card, ink and buttons and they are all the most delicious colours. I have used Sticky Toffee, Strawberry Fool and Vanilla Cupcake.

The large heart stamp on the card is a Magenta stamp I bought from e-bay which has been stamped in Strawberry Fool ink. The button is a Sticky Toffee button and I have added some paper string and beads from my stash. The smaller hearts (which are Hero Arts pattered hearts) have been stamped in Sticky Toffee and Strawberry Fool ink.

The ribbon is from my local market.

The chocolate pearls are from my stash.

The gift box has been made from a template from Splitcoasters and is a "2-5-7-10 Box"
I did actually make mine a little larger to fit more choccies in !!

I used an MS heart punch for the top edge and Strawberry Fool panel.

The heart is from a set called "Tags - Valentine II" sold at Elzybells. These stamps have been designed to fit the heart nesties and are fantastic - I can highly recommend them ! Unfortunately, my purse can't !!!

The ribbon is from my local market.

Phew ! I think that is everything - are you still here ???? !!!

The DT's cards are amazing this week and if you look closely, we have a very special guest joining us too ! None other than the amazing TARA who started off this fantastic challenge blog for us all. So lovely to have you back kiddo !!!

We look forward to seeing you joining us in our Birthday celebrations.

Thank you so much for your visit and for any comments you leave.

Have a great day !

    This is going to sound strange from a chocoholic like me but your creations had me drooling more than the chocolate cake (which does look rather delicious).

    This is not a colour combo I would usually put together so I will have to give it a go and enter the challenge... watch this space!!

    I know you never asked for it to be advertised on blogs but I put a link to this candy (and the Basic Grey one) on my sidebar here
