are you up for a creative challenge?

 
Many years ago I was a part of a great forum.
We had swaps and meets and challenges.
 
One of the really fun challenges was where we signed
up and then were given a random picture and a colour.
 
From these we were free to create whatever we liked
using the picture and the colour as our inspiration.
 
I was given the colour pink and a picture of a gingerbread man.
I ummed and ahhed and finally decided on this little stitchery.
 

 
But if I wanted to I could have made a stuffed pink gingerbread
or cards or wallhangings or anything.
 
I thought it might be fun to kick off another challenge like this.
 
What are your thoughts?
Are you interested?
 
I would need a few to sign up to make it interesting and
you would need to email me .
I would email you back with a picture and a colour.
You would then create something using these as your inspiration.
One month from the day the emails are sent I will
add a linky thing here and you would blog your creation
and hundreds of us would
descend on your blog exclaiming at your awesomeness!
 
All this was running through my head last night
so if you have any thing to add please just say so.
 
Feel free to sign up now by
leaving a comment but then you must email me.
 
It would also be great if you told your friends too
the more the merrier!
I will close the signups at the end of the month which
means you will need to blog your creations on 1st September.
