February kicks off with a NEW COLOR CHALLENGE!

WELCOME TO FEBRUARY! I can't believe we are already a month into 2010 - January flew by, but it seems February is usually the one to DRAG.

We'll try to help alleviate your boredom a bit, by throwing down some brand new challenges for you, with new prize packs, a new Guest Design Dollie, and loads of wonderful inspiration from the Dollies!

I have some work to do today - since we actually HAVE some lovely sunshine on a Monday morning, I should be able to get some good shots of the February prize pack for the Color Challenges, AND I have to get all the names together from our January participants and let declare a WINNAH! Unfortunately, there were a couple of entries that didn't QUITE make the deadlines, so unfortunately those won't be included - please watch the time zones, folks! It is too difficult to keep track when the dates of the submissions blend into the next week, so midnight on Sunday is the cutoff before the new Color Challenge kicks in. Please let me know if you have any questions, we'll be happy to help! HERE IS THE LOWDOWN, giving you the instructions on playing along with one, two, or all three challenges for the week.

Today, a BIG thank you goes out to our very first GUEST Design Dollie, Karen, who worked her magic all through January, completed more of the challenges than she was assigned, and showed her enthusiasm as a true TEAM PLAYER. Karen, we are SO happy you joined us, and you'll always be a Dollie to us! :D

And we're starting things off for February with a bit of POP! Your challenge?

RED and BLACK, and one NEUTRAL.
Not much to interpret there, so be sure your projects are not chock full of yellows and pinks and blues and what have you... ;)

And a bit of inspiration from the Dollies, to get your motors runnin'...

from moi, Leah the Orange (using a Some Odd Girl image):

from Kristy (the brilliant Some Odd Girl owner/artist):

and from Nicole (busy with her gorgeous new puppies!):

Pretty obvious that we Dollies are BIG fans of kraft, no? :) I'm quite sure that you'll all be wowing us with your projects for this challenge - remember they have to be created NEW for this challenge, and you MUST link back to us in your blog post in order to qualify for the February prize package. I'll be posting the winner of our January prize later today, as well as showing you what you'll be playing for this month.

Get those RED, BLACK and ONE NEUTRAL projects in by next SUNDAY at midnight EST for your chance to win, and come and visit tomorrow when we bring you a brand new Elements Challenge!
