Blog Candy for 10 000 Hits!


Yes, I'm offering more blog candy! I feel like that's all I've been doing this month! Oh well, it's lots of fun.

I notice that my counter has passed 10 000 hits! THANK YOU SO MUCH to all of you who visit my blog regularly. I so appreciate your support and your kind and encouraging comments.

To win the blog candy, please leave me a comment telling me your favourite colour combination(s). I'm always looking for inspiration for my colour schemes, so I'm interested in hearing what your tried and true combos are!

I'll leave this open until the evening of Sunday, October 28, and post the winner on Monday morning (whom I will select using Random.org). Good luck!

Updated to add: Here's what's in the blog candy: a new, unmounted "The World Over" Stampin' Up! stamp set, ten 6 x 6 sheets of designer paper (most of it is Stampin' Up!, but a few are some I've found in my craft store shopping), some American Craft card embellishments and some Christmas bling. I hope you like it!

I really like red and black---and orange and brown. and I add in another neutral with them. I just dont get all this 3 named colors! give me the simple crayola box names.

Bluemoon said...

This is one of my all time favs, however, until you see it, some think it strange... it is navy blue and bronze/copper together. Navy paper and copper ink and/or ep (even xmas stamps). Combination is just awesome! I also do navy card front using various textures of copper papers for iris folded cards too! or use bronze metallic paper with navy ink/ep! Try it, you'll love it. :) Thx.

Thanks for the chance, and congrats on your hits. If I could buy the latest American in colours for 2007 they would be my favourites, just love them (will have to wait til next year when they should probably come out over here). In the meantime I find that any combination of colours from the earth family is good, in particular at the moment I am using a lot of chocolate chip, pumpkin pie and old olive.

Tejal said...

i am new to all this, but i will say i like chocolate chip, blue bayou, certainly celery and soft sky. i would like to try blue bayou, bravo burgundy, and chocolate chip. those may be too dark by themselves and may need river rock or a vanilla type color to set them off.
