Color Dare #144 – Juniper, Canary, Ruby + White Daisy

Welcome to Color Dare Challenges from Color My Heart.  Each Friday the design team announces a color palette for you to use to create your project.  You can create any type of project you'd like, as long as you use the chosen colors (and ONLY the chosen colors!).  If you don't have the actual Close To My Heart colors, just use a similar substitute.

How will this week's color combination inspire you?   Visit Color My Heart for more information about the challenge, get inspired by the design team, and upload your project.  I hope you'll join the Color Dare!

Quilt Raffle for American Cancer Society

I am excited to announce that I will once again be participating in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life.  The Henrietta-Brighton event will take place on June 27th.

This year I am dedicating my participation to my dear friend Harriet, who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.  Her strength, optimism and incredible friendship is an inspiration to me and all who surround her!

In addition to accepting straight donations, I will be raffling off a handmade quilt.  100% of ticket sales will be donated to ACS.  The winning ticket will be drawn at the event.  Tickets are $1 each or 6/$5.

To make a donation, please visit my event page.  To purchase raffle tickets, please contact me directly.  Please help me spread the word so I can raise lots of funds for this very important fight!

Thank you.
