Thank you everyone for playing along with the Color Combo Blog hop. Everyone had something different to share. I just loved that color combo!

Thank you for all the wonderful comments. You are too sweet. And, thanks to everyone that decided to become a follower!! Stayed tuned at the end for our winner.

It's time for a new challenge from Nerdy*Victorious*Scrapbookers! The collage for this month is a lot of pink and green and polka dots. I decided to make a card while I try to get my scrapping mojo back.

Here is the lovely collage:

I used that to make this lovely, little card for a very girly friend on her birthday!

Doesn't the collage just make you want to create? Well, get to it! Make something crafty and get on over to NVS and show us what you've got!

And what some of you have been waiting for....A winner. My goal was to get 30 followers. You guys were so wonderful, I ended up with 35! I am filling the box with everything I can fit and will be sending it off soon as she emails me her address.

Thanks everyone. Please think about playing along at NVS and come back in June for another Color Blog Hop!

Color Combo Blog Hop and a prize!!

Welcome to the Color Combo Blog Hop!!

If you arrived from Melissa's you are in the right place! If you are here and didn’t come from the previous blog, I am listing the hop below my post so you can go start back at the beginning if you wish!

This is our beautiful color palette courtesy of The Inspired Bride:

I used to the photo to get my inspiration started because I have one of these plants in my yard and had been wanting to take pictures with some water drops on it. My plant is not in as good condition as this one, but still fit the color combo. I added a tiny yellow flower from the grass in.

Next I moved onto some yellow flowers that haven't quite bloomed yet in the front yard. I used a close-up filter to get a nice, tight photo and a blurred background. I think the effect is quite ethereal.

Last, I remembered this fuzzy plant on the side yard. It's so soft. I just love to touch it! I brought along the tiny, yellow flower to keep with the color combo.

Now for a prize!! I have a small assortment of NIP scrap supplies. I squished a bunch of fun items into a small priority mail box. Leave me a comment on this post and become signed up to follow my blog. I will pick someone at random to receive this:

Right now I have 20 followers. If I can reach 30, I will add more to the box!
Now head on over to Calendula's and see what she has in store for you!!
