One Little Word and a Color Challenge

With the lack of snow here in Colorado, though we did get a nice two or three inches on Tuesday, it's dreadfully dull and brown.  Not even brown, it's grey - totally uninspiring.  I need some color.  This color combo comes from Apron Strings' Color Theory board on Pinterest and it's just the ticket.  It's bright and cheery and almost makes me forget the scenery here is way too drab.

I used this color combo myself to finish up my One Little Word cards (my word this year is Permission) this past weekend; just in time for the February challenge to hit my inbox.  Outside of adding ribbon to the monthly cards, I made four "filler" cards for the remaining pockets in my page protector.  I used paper from the January '11 Smaller than a Breadbox kit - the October Afternoon Sidewalks line.  I'm anticipating using the remainder of the kit over the course of the year on this project, but I'm not tied to a cohesive look, but I'll just see where it goes.  I added buttons, American Crafts glitter buttons (I love their glitter buttons!)  The combination makes me happy.  

Happy Thursday,

Those little monthly cards are great, Lori!

Oh thanks. Seems all my canvases lately are small. when I get around to a 12x12 layout again it's going to seem enormous.

Here's my take on the color inspiration. I used the December Smaller kit.
