***Please note that after switching from several different hosts before settling on Blogger, the formatting of my pictures may not be as it was originally intended. I simply don't have the time to go back through years of posts in order to fix the orientation of the pictures. Sometimes a picture just shows a box of text in its place, but clicking on it will allow you to see the picture. Others, there may be no picture at all. I apologize.***

Combat Boot Challenge 05

Hi there!!  I hope that with the holidays approaching you'll be able to participate in this week's challenge.  I will not be posting one next Saturday - I'll skip a week - just to take a little break over the weekend directly following Thanksgiving.  I'm sure you all will be busy too :)

Chocolate Room

As you can see above, this is the inspiration photo for this week's challenge.  I found it over at the Behr (paint) website under a section called "Designing a Dreamy Bedroom.  Restful Color Schemes You'll Just Love Waking Up To." and I really liked this one.  You can see the link HERE.  Just make sure to click on the "Emotional" tab.  I am trying to figure out exactly how I want to do our bedroom.  I was thinking a light (not too light) greyish-blue color to go with our bedspread, but the bedspread does have chocolate in it and I really like this room.  I don't know if it would get "too dark" though for me????.....

Anyway - here are the rules:
You will have through Monday evening (Nov 24) to comment with a link to your creation.  Please post your link in a comment to THIS post.  Additionally, please ensure that you leave a direct link to the actual post or specific picture in your gallery.

On Tuesday morning, November 26th, I will post my own creation along with a list of links to all of yours.  I will use Random.org to select one of your entries as the "featured artist" in my own post.  This means for your link to appear in the initial post or to be considered as the featured artist, I would need to have it by 8:00 pm on Monday evening. 

If you upload your card to SCS, please use the keyword CBC05 with no spaces, so that we can find them easily.


  1. Wooohoo I finally had a chance to do your challenge. Here is my card.

  2. I'm not happy with this card, but I so wanted to participate in your challenge. This is my first challenge (which is clear when you see the card) and since your blog was the first one I signed up for, it seemed fit that your challenge would be my "first" as well.
    The only thing I like about my card is the color combo AND I got to play with my nesties (which I'm totally addicted to).
    Hopefully I'll gain more confidence in these challenges!
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. oops, here's my link... see, I don't know how to do this!!
