We're here again with another MFT Color Challenge! Join us as we create with this week's color combination. 

This challenge features nautical colors to inspire you  Cherry CrispBlu RaspberryCornflower, and After Midnight. 

Hi, Friends!

It's warm and humid here!  I know it's not as hot as it is out west, but warm and uncomfortable just the same.  This week is the fair, also.  Those poor animals out in the warm weather.  I hope their owners take good care of them with lots of cool water!  

Anyways, I wanted to think some cool thoughts, so I made the above card.  And, I'm entering it over at MFT Color Challenge!  I was very inspired by Barbara Anders, MFT DT, cute!

I started with a white card base and paired it with Lawn Fawn paper.  All the stamps and dies are from MFT!  I just love the sweet polar bear and everything that comes with the fun stamp set!  

Well, that's all for now.  Lots of hot weather out there...stay safe and cool!  Take care!



  1. Cute and sweet card, Maria! I'm ready for some cold weather!

  2. I love this sweet winter scene Maria - what an adorable polar bear! I also like how you created the snow using circles of white card - what a great idea!

  3. It's hot here too; I prefer cooler days too :) Your card is fun! I love winter cards with a fun twist; and a perfect take on that challenge.
    Stay cool :)

  4. Adorable! Love the snowballs and the pretty scalloped border on top!

  5. I was thinking nautical, too, as soon as I saw those colors... but you blew me away with your icy winter design! How absolutely adorable! LOVE that polar bear, and the big snowballs behind him really make me smile. So cute how the sign barely peeks above those giants! <3

  6. Oh my goodness, Maria--this is absolutely fabulous! I love all the circles for the snow--brilliant design!

  7. LOVE how you used the colors to make a cold weather card! Delightful!

  8. Great use of circles and it looks great in that colour combo.

  9. This card is just toooo cute!!!! I love the circles for snow, an awesome idea!
