I am celebrating my BLOGAVERSARY!!

Today I have a card in my post and  I  have the prize and


Here is today’s prize:



And The QUESTION is….

What is your FAVORITE Color and WHY????

My answer is YELLOW – has always been, and always will be!! It is bright, happy and always makes me smile!! When I was little I associated the yellow sunshine with happiness because it was on the yellow sunshine-y days that I could play outside!!

You have until Friday, October 9th, 2015 at 10 pm (Mountain Standard Time) to leave me an answer to this question!!! I will let choose a winning comment and I will post the winner of this prize and the one I offered on Tuesday by noon (MST) Saturday, October 10th, 2015!

I created this card for some birthdays coming up:


This card was fun and easy – I used YELLOW card bases and some starry pattern paper!! I die cut the red panel from a MFT die called Die-Namics Vertical Stitched Die and the blue star is die cut using a Stars Framelits die from Stampin’ Up!I used a Versamark Ink pad with white embossing powder for my sentiments which are both from retired SU! sets!

I would like to link this card up to the following challenge:

Simon Says Stamp BlogWorld Cardmaking Day Challenge


Can’t wait to learn about your favorite color!!

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!

    I have 2 fav colors first Blue & 2nd Lavender. Blue is my fav color because as long as I remember I have liked the color in clothing, paint, etc. My fav Blue is pastel Blue because it is a soft color. Lavender is my 2nd fav and same as Blue I liked the color in clothing. My wedding color was Lavender and my 2 sisters wore Lavender dresses. I do like Yellow if you are referring to fav flower and that would be Yellow Roses.

    Really love your card, Taunya! Of course it has your favorite color but the other colors just pop when used with yellow. I can’t say that I really have a favorite color. I remember growing up that I thought blue was a great color and I often bought a lot of my clothes in blue. But since I started making craft and particularly cards I use lots of different colors and every time that I use one that I don;t use very often I think how pretty it is and I should use it more often. So I don;t think that I have a favorite right now. I enjoy all the colors as they come together. I do have some favorite combinations. I think red, white and blue and the black white and red are some of my favorite combos. Have a wonderful day!

      I have always liked red. I think it is because it is such a “take notice” color. I have always been a shy, more reserved person, but I’ve been known to use bright red (like candy-apple red) nail polish to make a statement! LOL

    Cheryl W says:

    I love RED, Taunya – all shades and tones. And I especially love when it is combined with teal or with black and white. An indication of a dramatic personality? Well…maybe… tee hee. Have a wonderful, love-filled day!

    What a sweet card! It’s cheerful and happy, just like you, Taunya! This is a tough question, as I love ALL the colors in the rainbow! Hmmm…..I guess if I must have a favorite, it would be all shades and hues of BLUE! Hugs to you, dear friend!

    Happy Anniversary! Thanks for a great giveaway today! My favorite colors change every now and then, but right now it’s a bright, hot pink! It feels really modern and fresh, and I love it paired with white, gold, or bright orange! There’s a million shades of pink, but only one that’s just the right shade of bright!
    Take care!

    I love your card with all the stars! Definitely makes me want to celebrate! Primary colors are so cheery and with a bit of green thrown in, such a great combination!
    My favorite color would probably be red. As a child I loved red and I wanted my parents to paint the door to our house red but they weren’t into it so I told them that when I grew up, I would buy the house next door and paint the door red☺ Well, I didn’t buy the house next door, but I did paint the door to my house red…and the kitchen too!

    BYU blue is by far my favorite. I have been drawn to shades of blue my whole life. A sunny day, water, football. These are all things that bring me true joy in life.

    Kayla says:

    Pink because it just makes me happy. My craft room is a beautiful bright pink color, and I still smile when I look around.

    Indy says:

    Yellow is the perfect color for you! For me, I love the cool colors of the ocean. I am especially found of purples. Purples are so soothing for me! They help me relax after a trying day at work! I have 3 rooms in my house painted a shade of lavender, so I can either be relaxing in the laundry room, the main bathroom, or my bedroom! Ha!
    Thanks for a super fun question!

    P.S. 29 conferences down with 15 more to go!!!!

    Oh my, Taunya…how cute, generous and sweet are you with this fabulous giveaway! Of course yellow would be your favourite colour, as it speaks to allllll the amazing things about your personality that all of us love: warm, sunshine-y (even when you have some ‘cloudy’ days, ‘sunny you’ still shines), bright, eye-catching, inviting…Funny that way back when I met you, i somehow associated you with ‘yellow’, as you did – and continue to – make my days sparkle. And in my world, sparkles are yellow! Your card is a celebration on paper! Mega-watt smiling beaming allll over my face! My favourite colour is coral…not quite red, not quite pink, not quite orange, but a lovely ‘smooshing’ of all three. AND, if you move the letters around, coral becomes carol. How cool is that!

    What a fun birthday card…it is party on a card!! My favorite color is black. It goes with all colors. It is bold and in card making gives you eyes some where for your eyes to rest.

    Hello, Taunya! I like your card – the star theme is awesome – and great for either a male or female! My favourite colour is PINK – in any shade. I grew up with 3 brothers and we didn’t have much money so my bedroom was always blue – all of our bedrooms were blue! I always loved my friends’ girly bedrooms and always wanted pink but wasn’t able to have a pink bedroom until I bought my first house! I still love pink – my craftroom is pink! I find it very pleasing to the eye!

    Vinita Jain says:

    Tanya, your Birthday card is very pretty! Love it!
    My fave color is all the shades of blue as it is very cool and calm! Since my childhood I love to see the night sky and the stars, love the colors of ocean in shades of blue tones very much! So I love to wear blue shade clothes, wall paint even in blue, my decoration pieces are almost in blue and in crafting too!
    Thanks for the chance to win this awesome giveaway!

    This is such a fun question huni! And I think my answer will mean I don’t get into the draw lol.
    I have been struggling this question all week because of trying to finish projects for DT creations and entries for some of the current challenges. This past summer I finally realised that I love colour. Especially bright, cheerful, warm and hot colours.
    I’ve always loved red, but it is deep red that has a light touch of blue, going all the way to the colour pink, not fuchsia or baby pink though or red with orange, lol.
    Also I’ve always loved blue, the blue of the sky or the ocean, which sometimes goes more to the colour of jade, teal, or turquoise.
    Right now I am playing with red, yellow and orange and I’ve realised that I love those too. Long story short I love just about all bright colours, with the exception of fluorescent and grunge colour tones.
    Bright, cheerful, hot and wonderfully warm but more in the shades of red or blue – so my joint colour favourites are blue and red, closely followed by peach and burnt orange. Sorry to have waffled so much – but to me colour is important because those bright hot colours help to lift my spirits Karen x

    Yellow is also my favorite color! Now we have yellow and gingerbread collections in common!
    Yellow is bright and cheerful; warm and healing. It just makes me feel good! It also goes along with green my second favorite color!
