Challenge #157 - CHAT NOIR

Welcome to our newest Poobah -
the wonderful 

Chat Noir

Mme. Noir has been a Poobah follower since the very start 
and we've loved her style all along.

So, in honor of her joining our merry band as a DT member, 
we are making a challenge entitled


Encouraging you to create using BLACK or CAT
Or Black AND Cat, entirely up to you!

Just get your crafty on
and then share your creations with us!

Let's see what everyone has been up to, shall we?

 Chat Noir here - so honoured to be a part of the glorious
Opus Gluei, and still a bit flabbergasted at being asked to join.
Who'd have thought it?
And I've also been favoured with a Challenge that's right up my street
(well, Avenue really, but since its in Melbourne
I don't suppose I'm going to be inundated with callers)
(but you're welcome)....BLACK!!
Hooray, after all those colours in the recent posts.

I have made some ATCs, which are my very
favourite things, until I get around to trying inchies...
.Black seems to go with everything, but for me
 it sings best with silver and red or white.
I've used a variety of things from
the bottom of the busy-room drawers and I hope you're inspired
to try your hand at this lovely mysterious and romantic part of the spectrum."


Rosemary here, please ignore that my photograph might make you hungry for candy corn.  This was unintentional.  LOL  I'm inspired by Chat Noir's clean and simple style, she makes her projects look so classy and elegant and I love that.  My card here is anything but classy and elegant, but I do think it is clean and simple (one layer only) with lots of color and a bit of whimsy!  I thought this was fun and I hope you do too.  

Electra here.  I am thrilled beyond belief to have Chat Noir join our Poobah-roster.  I was inspired to create something with a Chat Noir in it, I know, not terribly creative, but it seemed so simple, what can I say?  As for the actual piece, and the thinking behind it?  Don't ask me. Credits can be found on my blog.

Deena here:

my project is a bit of a stretch to classify as "black" - however to welcome Chat Noir to our team, I did purchase (and use) a super fancy dancy sparkly and shiny piece of gorgeous black cardstock to make this scrapbook page....can't wait for the craft lounge to be finished so I can get back into my supply stock, but the end is near and the beginning is almost here (next week construction begins)...wahoozle!!!

Jana here: I am thrilled to have Chat Noir as part of our glorious team. Here's a little tribute to welcome her to the fold:

You have until the end of Saturday 1 June to join in with your fabulous creation. Add your blog post address to Mr Linky below.
If you would like to join in with a previous challenge we've set (life happens and lateness is absolutely fine, we don't mind a bit) just add your blog post address to Mr Linky below. Please make sure your blog post refers to the previous challenge you are entering so we don't get confused.  
We look forward to visiting you!
