Mornin', friends! Hope you've all had a wonderful weekend and are getting geared up for lots of festive holiday stuff - whatever it is you and your loved ones may celebrate. It's Thanksgiving week here in the U.S. and people are frantic in the grocery stores, but I think the big excitement happens this Friday when the BLACK FRIDAY SALES are in full swing! Good luck to those of you braving the physical stores - online shopping may be the way to go though, if you're not a fan of crowds and getting up at 3 a.m. ;)

Leah here, bringing you another Color Challenge! You rocked it last week, and a few of you even SQUEAKED in your projects within the last few hours - WOOT! I absolutely love the pink and green combo, and clearly I am not alone! This week, something a little more dramatic...

I want to see:
Not too much orange, folks! Some subtle accents, but
the majority of your project must be black and grey and white.


KarenB, our Honorary Dollie Admin Wonderwoman, created this AMAZING
stitched masterpiece (and check out those rolled flowers!):

I, Leah, went CAS with a thank you card for a sweet friend
(who happened to give me a pad of paper from whence the orange flowers were cut!)

And Cardmaking Queen Chiqui brought us ANOTHER fabulous card - we're thrilled
to have turned her to The Dark Side, as she's obviously got the knack!

Think you can rock this combo like you did with last week's colors? We at the Dollhouse have NO DOUBT whatsoever that we're gonna see some serious mastery of the papercrafting kind!

Play along by next SUNDAY, November 28th, at midnight EST for your chance to win, uh, a bunch of awesome stuff. Seriously - I've been a mad shopper, and I have loads of things piling up here!

***Your projects must be NEW for this challenge - absolutely NO backlinking, and if your link is posted 5 minutes before or after this post goes live, I think it's safe to say you didn't actually MAKE the project for this challenge, which totally upsets us! Please consider the fact that we buy the prizes for our challenges from our very own pockets, so we'd like to know that you're truly inspired by the challenges we set. Occasionally we do have sponsors, but for the most part we do this and give stuff away because we love to do it. How ya like DEM apples? :)

OH, and be sure to link back to this here Design Dollies blog in order to help us spread the word and bring more people here to visit. The more, the merrier!

Happy crafting! ANNNNND, if you're thinking you might like to BE on the next team of Design Dollies, check out our Dollie-Call HERE! You could be playing in the Dollhouse with us!


  1. Beautiful! I have never ever seen a blanket stitch used on paper - blown away!
