Our challenge has been chosen!  Thanks to Karen, who said:

what about a challenge using only one color. Could use all different shades, ribbons, buttons etc from that color family

Meet the Creative Sisters Guest Designer, Karen from the Little Scrap Pieces Blog.  She has some amazing creations posted on her blog and you will see she is a very talented lady.

A bit about Karen:

I am minutes from Downtown Saratoga NY with my husband of 35 years and we have three wonderful daughters ages 30, 25, and 20.  Ever since I can remember I have been in love with all crafts.  My grandmother was a seamstress and I could spend hours looking through her tin of buttons and box of laces.  As a young girl, my mom taught me to knit.  She is an avid quilt maker.  During the 90's I did a ton of cross stitch samplers.  Loved the vast choice of thread and linen colors.  But it would take weeks to  complete one project. 

At a book fair I saw a K&Company scrapbook kit and the rest they say is history.  I began scrap booking and then started making some cards for special occasions.  Card making is so gratifying for me.  You can take all day to make one or sometimes only minutes.  But, they are always appreciated.

Thanks to Patti for selecting my idea.  I hope it inspires you to work out of your comfort zone.

I had a lot of fun with the color challenge. I would have picked purple (my favorite color), but I wanted to be different from the others that had already completed the challenge. I am a follower of your wonderful blog (as long as blogger doesn't keep taking my followed blogs away) and am following your sister Linda, too!!
