Color Throwdown #109 for Abby


Hello everyone, and welcome to Wednesday and another Color Throwdown! We're up to challenge #109 already... I can't believe it's been 9 weeks already since we celebrated #100! Time just flies by these days! I hope you'll decide to play along this week with this bright color combo I chose! Consider it one last tribute to Summer before we start getting chillier weather, and pull out the warm Fall colors!

My card was created for a sweet little girl, named Abby (in case you didn't figure that out!) Abby and her family go to my church... she is 2 years old. Last week, her Mommy posted something on Facebook about how Abby was watching for the mailman to come and was very disappointed when he came, and drove right by their house, apparently having no mail for their household that day. Someone commented and said "were you expecting something?" and Abby's Mom said "No, Abby just likes to get the mail!" So I thought I'd surprise Abby with some mail all her own! (And when I get some time, I'll have to create another card so big sister Emily doesn't feel left out!) It was a great opportunity to use the sweet Banner Day Die-Namics from My Favorite Things to spell out Abby's name on the card, along with this cute Pure Innocence image, too!
Stop by the Color Throwdown blog for all the challenge details, and check out what my Throwdown sisters have created by visiting their blogs, too...

I love the colors you chose this week - perfect for a little girl. She'll love it!

And now you're making me regret that I didn't buy those banner dies. I can't believe I didn't after the adorable make & take at CHA. Do you have them at the store?

First, the card is adorable! But what impressed me the most is why you made it. Such a sweet thing to take your time just to bring a smile to a little girls face because of mail. I can relate to the story because I have not one, but two little guys who are the same way with the mail. One, whose birthday was last week, had been checking the mail for the past month hoping for his own mail!
