Color Hues #46- Special Tribute

 Hello Crafters,

We are deeply saddened to share the news that we lost our treasured friend and teammate, Lindsey, last week, following her hard-fought battle with cancer. Lindsey was well-known for her amazing creativity, witty sense of humor and immense capacity to support and encourage her design team members and challenge participants.  The crafting community will miss her shining light.

HERE is a link to her Obituary beautifully written by her husband, Burke.

Today's color challenge was chosen by Lindsey. The Design Team wants to honor and celebrate her beautiful, creative life by sharing "Lindsey Inspired" projects using her Blue and Purple combination, along with things she loved the most, as inspiration. We hope you will join us as we pay tribute to our dear friend and teammate.

Here are a few of her favorite things:  

humor, cats
love of reading

If you are a regular here at Color Hues and/or Seize the Birthday you might know that Lindsey loved Clean and Simple cards too. 

*For today's Special Challenge, we are being joined by our Sister Challenge Teammates from Seize the Birthday.  Lindsey was an intricate part of that Design Team as well.  

*We also have two guests joining us as well. Welcome, Fran and Stef, and thanks for joining us for this challenge and being so flexible at the change.

Our Teams:




This challenge will be open until August 14th @ 9AM!

The winners will be posted an hour before our next challenge goes live.

future Guest Designer!

We hope you will join us for our Special Tribute to Lindsey
 as we celebrate her life!

Take care,

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
