Ready? Set. Go!

Today is the third Wednesday of the month and that means a Ready, Set, Go Challenge Card! The 3 Musketeers (Jeanette, Kelly and I) are back with another challenge this month--our 17th month!  We are now coming to the end year #2!

provided the challenge for September and I posed a color challenge--a random one:  I love color combo challenges, so this is a version of one.  Go to the master lists of Color Challenges on SCS.  I think there are over 700 right now.  Please check out the ones that end on your birthday—Jeanette is 26th, Kelly is 28th and I am 01.  So you will be able to check out 7 or so that end with your date.  I would look at numbers 1, 101, 201, 301, etc.  You can pick any one of those color combinations that you want.  The twist is to also pick a holiday—famous or weird—from the month of your birthday.  So, Kelly picks something in March while Jeanette and I use October.  Use your color combo to make a card that “celebrates” that holiday.  Does that make sense?  Ready?  Set.  Go!

OK--so I picked out my color challenge, number 601.  The colors were Melon Mambo, Mint Macaron, Dapper Denim.  I love those colors independently and I thought it would make a great tropical type card.  At this point, I "forgot" about the second part of the challenge--picking a holiday in October.............  I was even so excited that I had a Kaleidacolor ink pad that was such a good match.  And, I knew what style of image I wanted to use--one of my favorite Paper Inspiration Calligraphy stamps.  Imagine my surprise when I started this blog post and realized this needed to be for an October Holiday!  And, I have no time to create another card. This is where I wing it..................

So--does this count Caffeine Addiction Recovery Month count as a celebration?  Or can we celebrate Class Reunion Month?  Maybe we can celebrate Country Music Month? I know--German-American Month, as I am a first generation German, living in America!   Take you pick--and let's Celebrate.  Sorry Jeanette and Kelly, I messed up.  Maybe I didn't..........................  I guess by using the Celebrate image, I can use it for any holiday I pick!

Here is the inside of my card:

Please be sure to check out the other Ready, Set, Go cards.  Here is a link to Jeanette's and Kelly's blog.  I am sure you will not be disappointed and will see a couple of great cards! I hope Kelly and Jeanette like my card and that you might too! Jeanette is up for the next theme, so be sure to check back to see what we are up to on the 3rd Wednesday in October!

Barb, I'm giggling... nearly spewed coffee at my computer screen. Now... let's Celebrate! Every. single. October. Holiday.

Awesome card, by the way... I love that you used that ink pad because it makes the stamped saying stunning!

Oh what a lovely card Barb - love the colours you chose, and had to giggle at the celebratory days you chose to accompany your 'celebration neutral' card :-)
