Challenge 292 - 1st of January - Colour Combo

Morning all!

First of all we would like to wish you a very Happy, Healthy and Crafty 2015!

Are you ready for the start of a brand new year? 2014 seemed to run away with us before we even had a chance to realise it. One of my Maths teachers in secondary school used to say that there was a mathematical reason why time seems to go quicker when we get a little older. For argument's sake he would state the life expectancy to be 100 years. Therefore if we are only 10 years old, we still have 90% of our life to live and when we are 60, we only have 40% of our life to live. It therefore stands to reason, so he told us, that time seems to pass quicker at that point.

A lot of things have happened. Some of our sponsors have needed to withdraw sponsorship due to financial reasons. It was no longer financially viable to continue their small businesses due to the changes in the European laws regarding VAT. We had already decided to reduce the number of sponsors per challenge to ensure they can have their products shown off better.

Now down to the first challenge of 2015:

Colour Combo

Anything that fits in with this subject, qualifies for entering into this challenge. Don't forget, there is a maximum of 5 entries per person and it needs to be new work (so created and posted after this challenge has started). Please also make sure to turn word verification off as this makes leaving a comment on your lovely creations much easier. We do not leave a comment if you have word verification switched on.

To help you with this challenge, Jo has created some background papers with this colour combo, which you can download for free here.

Here are the fabulous sponsors for this challenge:

The prize is 3 of their images of choice.
