colourQ challenge #8...


Thanksgiving arrived all to fast this year! I'm looking forward to Christmas and found this beautiful stocking made with Figgy Pudding fabric by HaydenJ... I think these colors are so brilliant and perfect for the holidays! For you paper junkies, the fabric is based on Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding. I don't own any, so I improvised using SU! colors for my creation below! If you'd like a little more info on my card you can click the image below...



Tanja and Imke were kind enough to be our guest designers this week... aren't their cards beautiful? Tanja's crafty creation features some flocking I think, and Imke used some great embellishments!!! Hopefully they'll be posting their cards to their blogs for you to enjoy and find out more about. Thanks so much ladies for sharing your enchanted takes on today's colors!

colourQ challenge #7 ~ Winner Crowned...



Wowza ~ we had 11 entries this week & they were all excellent! You gals really know how to make it tough on me trying to pick just one! I loved all the little details on this winning card... from the polka dot ribbon to the paper & brads... I also thought it was neat she didn't make a Thanksgiving card, but don't get me wrong... I do love a good Thanksgiving card! This week's colourQueen is...

So go leave each other a kind word!



Once again, congratulations to Julie!


I know this post is later than usual. I spent most of the day with family, as my great uncle passed away on Saturday... he was 81 and had been in declining health for several years. He was a great man who'll be missed by many. It reminds me have a thankful heart for those whom I hold dear & not to let any time go to waste. I hope you all have a blessed Thanksgiving, and for those of you not here in the states... I invite you to take some time this week to give thanks in some way for all your blessings.


I am also thankful for all of you for sharing your awesome talent! It's creative gals like you that make stamping fun & the web a great place! This week I realized that I need to buy some re-inkers so that I can try the shaving cream technique, that I should dig out my All in the Family stamp set, and maybe even use buttons for butterfly bodies - lol! Thanks again for all your inspiration!


See you in the morning for next week's challenge and samples from our guest designers, Tanja & Imke!
