#tgifc193 Color Challenge

Welcome to our very first challenge of 2019!!!
Hope you are having a great start to this new year.
We'd like to start it off bright and happy with a fun, and cheery color combo for you!

Speaking of bright - our bright star of last week's challenge is:

Congrats!

We are super excited to add a NEW designer joining us this week!
Please welcome the fabulously talented
  Paula Dobson!

Paula is a former designer for the prestigious Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team in 2017. She lives in New Zealand and has been a Demonstrator for about 10 years. We are excited to add her clean, fresh style to our team! Welcome aboard Paula!!!

We are also so excited to introduce
Dani Dziama!!!
Dani has been a paper crafter since the early 90s while in college, when she saw a stamping demonstration using heat embossing. She learned the hard way that hair dryers and her parents stove were not the best way to make that magic happen! Good thing she signed up as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator in 2012! Married to her sweetheart Mike for 24 years, they live in Michigan and have 2 adult children (looks like they must have gotten married and started their family when she was like 10 - LOL), she also served on the 2017 Artisan Design Team! Welcome Dani!!!!





Now, let's take a peek at what our designers have chosen to create with this color challenge to kick off the new year:
