Alright, so you almost have it here. It looks like you are manually entering the color "blue" into the print statement. The problem with that is that if the user puts in literally ANYTHING else, than 'blue', it will not be accurate. So what you need to do is use a string format to put the variable into the print statement

example:

variable_one = 'this is the insert'
print('this is my string, {}'.format(variable_one))

where the output will look like:

this is my string, this is the insert

Also, if you are using python 3.6 or higher, you can make use of "f string" which is very convenient.

    variable_one = 'this is the insert'
    print(f'this is my string, {variable_one}')
