Hello and happy Tuesday!

Did you all watch the college football championship last night? What a game right?!? As most of you know we are BAMA I'm super excited that we won! Clemson played an awesome game and they can be proud of their accomplishments this season...they are definitely to be watched again next year!

Anyways....since it's all know what that the's COLOUR Q time!!! I'm also playing along in the PTI - January Play Along With Us Challenge.....

Here are this weeks new CQC324 colors.....

...and my card is based on this card from Danielle Flanders....I flipped the layout to the bottom and used only one flower with the sentiment.....

Ok...I have to admit...these colors where intriguing, but I realllllly like them after I was done with my card! So...don't be afraid trying them....just have fun playing!!!
