A Colorful Fall DARE...

Hey everyone!

It's another Whimsical Wednesday and I'm excited to bring you another challenge over at the Diedrich Dare...the new Challenge Blog that is brought to you by none other than my kiddos who love to draw sketches and do color and inspirational challenges because they just love to share my love of stamping with me!

We are lucky to have a wonderful team of ladies who love to play the sketches too and they are fondly known as the DAREDEVILS! Speaking of which, I am super excited to welcome LISA HJULBERG to the DAREDEVIL TEAM! Lisa has wowed us with her creations for the first few weeks of the Dare challenges and I've also been a fan of hers for SOME time...so I'm really excited to have her on board with us!

This week we have a color challenge designed by Madelynn, my oldest child. I'm going to interpret these colors as Blue, Green and Orange, LOL. I could go into specifics, but she didn't so hey, that gives us all more creative freedom, right?I only let my Unity Stamps September Kit of the Month sit on my desk for ONE day before I busted it out! I LOVE the new Kit and there are some great images in this kit!!! I don't think I could have decided what image to use first, but this little pumpkin was calling my name and hey, I could color it Orange!!! Perfect!

Be sure to check out the rest of the Daredevils creations this week:

Well that's about it for now....I hope you guys can play along this week, and if you do, be sure to leave a comment on the DARE blog linking your creation. You can use keyword DDSC3.

I am going to go play with more stamps from my Kit of the Month now, hee hee :) Hope you all have a Whimsical Wednesday and that you'll play along with us this week!

Cheers!
Jess :)

LOVE this!!! You did a great job coloring the pumpkin. I can't believe I thought the green was black!!! I guess I'm not too good at color challenges. LOL!!

OMGosh, so cute Jess!!! You know, it's because of you that I finally broke down and joined the Unity Kit of the Month. I just couldn't hold out any longer after seeing all the cool stuff you've done with your Unity stamps. Now I'm tapping my fingers waiting for the postman to arrive! {LOL}

Thanks so much for the warm welcome to the group. I'm so happy to join you and get to know everyone better. You KNOW I'm one of your biggest fans, which is why I jumped at the chance!

Big Hugs,
Lisa
