Color Inspiration #53

Color Inspiration #53

Happy weekend, all! We’re continuing with reader-submitted photos, and this week the photo is from Anthonette Chavez. Isn’t this little guy so cute?! I took the bright colors from the little toy he’s holding. :)

So the colors this week are black, red (like a true, real red), pacific blue, sun yellow, and white. Have fun!

I just wanted to thank you all for participating each week. I’m so overwhelmed and humbled that so many of you would find this little color challenge helpful. And please do continue to submit your cards and pages and other creations. I love seeing them.

I also need to thank each of you who alert me when there are spam submissions. It helps so much! I’ve been able to delete the links more quickly because of all of you. If you find a spam link, please contact me and let me know. Thanks! :)

If you’d like to send a picture in to be considered for a Color Inspiration Challenge, read the details here.

  1. After reading Mr. Linky’s blog entry this morning, I thought I’d better link my card in a comment as well. Interesting color combo, Kristina!

  2. I’m not sure what’s going on but I submitted my link earlier, it was there, and now it’s missing. I tried doing it again but it’s not working… it acts like it’s submitting but it’s not there.
    Here’s mine:

  3. Mr. Linky seemed to work just now…I see my name on the list. Here’s my card just in case:…

  4. Seems to be working now, but here is my card just in case!…

  5. Hi Kristina – Mr. Linky still seems to be working – but in case it isn’t -here is my card entry:…

  6. Mr. Linky says I’m #149, but just in case, here is the link to my entry. Thanks!…

  7. Thanks for the challenge! Great teacher cards with those bold colors! It appears that Mr. Linky is working…mine posted as #155. Thanks, Kristina!

  8. Mr. Linky seemed to be working, so I added my submission. Here’s another link if needed :-) Thanks for the great challenge!…

  9. This one almost killed me….lol.

    The printer also exploded ink all over my photos and I put them down on my page before i noticed the mess….…

    Mr. Linky SEEMS to be working fine, but I’m following the crowd and going with the flow.

    THank you for the challenge, it really did stretch me creatively.

  10. Hope my link works. Love pacific blue!

  11. This inspiration was exactly what I needed to finish designing my husband’s birthday invitation. I was stuck colors and then voila! I see this post and my problems are solved! Thanks for inspiring all of us :)…


  12. Hello, Kristina! Now I see the chaos! My name keeps popping off the list, so just in case, I’m going to try (I’m technically challenged to begin with!) to leave a link to my offering for your fun color challenge:…

  13. Anthonette told me to put my link in the comments even though I’m a bit late in posting… these colors were a challenge!…


  14. Hi Kristina
    I found this one a little difficult … but … Here is my entry for the challenge!…

    Hugs, Andrea

  15. Eeek… the challenge isn’t closed is it???

  16. Hey, I read yesterday that the challenge was extended to the 29th so I did it last night… :(…

    • It said “deadline unknown” yesterday until I knew that Mr. Linky was working correctly again. Once I knew it wouldn’t bomb out again, I went back to the original deadline of last night. Sorry about the confusion. :)

  17. I missed out on the challenge because I thought I had another day to procrastinate :). I guess not!
