Who made this fab card and her write up is priceless

One of my favourite sports is fishing.  I could sit out in the little dinghy for hours.  I can forget everything when I am out on the water, dream, or solve all the world's problems,  and then get to take home something to eat!  

However it takes a bit to encourage hubby as he is out there for 10 minutes and if he's not catching, he wants to go home.    He says it should be called Catching, not Fishing as otherwise what's the point?  I disagree.  I really don't mind if I don't catch anything all day... being out there is the point!

The sponsor of this challenge is

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Single Colour (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:

For me it simply has to be pink. I love several soft pastels, 
but pink is the colour of pretty flowers and blossom.

I have to say my most favourite colour is blue
I love the depth you get with blue and love that is has so many uses with other colours too.. ie mixing red and blue and getting purples.. etc but for this card I have concentrated on just blue!

I have always loved blue the most, it makes me think of the beautiful Pacific Ocean that surrounds our island home.

Always been a blue fan and this blue/violet shade is my favourite at the mo, reminds me of Lavender growing in my garden, moving gently in the wind giving off its lovely scent.

My favourite colour is blue - my daughter has the most beautiful blue eyes and when she was a little girl I would often dress her in blue dresses. Now as a grown woman she still favours blue.

My favourite colour is pink, it's just so pretty and girly, which suits the style of cards I love to make. 

I have many favorite colors, but when I made cards, I tend to "veer" towards Cherry Cobbler or RED....CC is very a very rich, deep red and goes well with so many different combinations....

My favourite colour has always been RED, even when I was a little girl I always loved red things. I love the warmth and vibrancy of this colour and maybe I'm just a little bit fiery by nature?

At the moment mine is definitely green. I think it's such a soothing colour for the eyes ... if you just imagine meadows, trees, frosts ... I love nature, so green does it for me ;)

It's blue for me, although I rarely wear blue (except for jeans) it HAS to be a favourite because I replace more blue Promarkers than any other colour!! It's also summer skies and sparkling sea at this time of year.


**coming soon**

For me it is green. I don't know why but I love that colour. Maybe the color of (new) leaves on the trees and shrubs and meadows.
Sometimes I make a series of little cards to give to someone and I always like the green one the best. 

So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and 
showcase your Favourite Single Colour (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
