Going to the Muppets with Friday Mashup

It's Friday, wheee! I hope everyone has had a great week! Mine has been busy but good!

Today Holly is bringing us a really fun challenge for this weeks Friday Mashup.....did you know that April is Autism Awareness Month and is also the Month of the Military Child(a special shout out to my 3 kids, proud military brats!). What better time to have a challenge that's geared to kids?

This week we want you to create a card for Kids (any age) and use the colors of your Favorite Muppet!! Yep, you read that right your favorite Muppet.. Is it Kermit, Miss Piggy, etc.... Don't forget to post a Pix of your favorite Muppet in your blog post so we can see who your project colors are based on!

Now, my favorite Muppet's are Statler and Waldorf, the 2 very sarcastic and funny old men but I figured they would make for a boring card, there really isn't a whole lot of color involved with them, so I went with my 2nd favorite...Animal! He cracks me up...he is so crazy and when he says "WO-MAN...WO-MAN" I cant help but laugh.

I used colors that I thought looked like his skin color, hair color and colors from the clothing he wears!

Make sure you head over to The Friday Mashup to check out all the great projects from the design team and then play along with us!
  1. Make a project using "Your Favorite Muppet Color Combo".
