CQC345 - CHECK IT OUT!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Unfortunately I don't have a new card for the COLOUR Q BLOG today! It's been a busy volleyball weekend and we came home later than expected.

BTW, if you have not heard yet, we are moving to TEXAS soon!!! I'm super excited, but this also means I'll be busy packing up my craft supplies (actually started already).
I'll will take a break until August or until I've set up my new craft area! Maybe I'll be able to squeeze in a card here and there...but no promises ;) !!!

Anyways, here are this weeks CQC345 colors....


Have fun crafting!!! Don't forget to check out the entire team over on the COLOUR Q BLOG!!!

PTI - MAKE IT MONDAY AND CURTAIN CALL - CHARMING

Hello stampin' friends!

Life has been crazy! Sarah and I got rear ended yesterday....thank goodness we are okay. Unfortunately my poor car is not! All the action sucked a lot of energy out of me...so I decided to relax and craft a card!

I came across the PTI - MAKE IT MONDAY #247 WATERCOLORED CHALLENGE by Melissa and thought I'd give it a try! I'm always a bit hesitant when it come to "watercoloring", but she explained it so perfectly that I gave it a try!



My color inspiration came from the current CURTAIN CALL INSPIRATION - CHARMING challenge.....and I'm totally loving this inspiration photo......


Hope you give these challenges a try...I know you will love them! Wishing you a fabulous day!
