colourQ challenge #13 ~ Wild Card Guest Designers...

Congratulations to our colourQ Wild Card Guest Designers Riley & Hazel!!! What a fabulous job!!!
These gals are not only super talented, but they were SUPER FAST stampers this week, as well! Please take the time to visit their blogs, either by clicking their names above or their cards below. And make sure you leave them some 'comment love' while you're at it!




At least once a month, there will be a week when we have no guest designers scheduled... so if you come to see the next week's challenge & there are no projects by guest designers, that's your "Q" to be one of the first two participants to upload YOUR project to Mr. Linky & earn a Wild Card Guest Designer spot & the badge!


Bye for now...

colourQ challenge #13...


Well, Christmas is now a warm, fuzzy memory & the festive holiday colors are behind us! (I do know that a few of you will not be missing Glorious Green - lol!) As I was perusing the deals at my local "megamart", I saw that they're already putting out Valentine candy! Wow... I was shocked they waited until Christmas was over! So in the spirit of jumping the gun, how about a sweet, candy heart inspired color scheme?!?

I'll be having my little princess in a few weeks, and found this rather adorable layered hair bow, from 2lil Angels Boutique, which is the inspiration of this week's challenge! Don't worry, I haven't gotten out my wallet yet, since Alex is just now growing hair at 18 months, I'm sure she'll be bald for a while as well! Here's my take on the colors, and info will be posted on my blog, as well...


So now it's your turn, crafty stampers! Using Mister Linky below, please add your name & the direct link to your image! Any mis-linked creations are subject to deletion, but I will try to contact you if I have to delete it, so that you can try again! If Mr. Linky is still having trouble... you can leave a link in a comment, as well! Please have your project uploaded no later Sunday, January 3rd at 11: 59 pm Central, if you wish to be considered for the colourQueen of the week. I'll make my pick on 01/04/2010, and post the winner who'll be able to display colourQ's colourQueen badge, and also be a future guest designer! I hope to have some guest designers next week, now that the holidays are over! I thought it might be too much to have them the last couple weeks with the holiday busy-ness looming!


Hope you get a chance to play!

colourQ challenge #12...


HoHoHo ~ it's almost here!!! Remember when you were a kid you couldn't wait for Christmas to get here, now some of you probably can't wait until it's over! Well I, for one, look forward to it, and will miss it once it's gone! So this week, here's a VERY TRADITIONAL Christmas color theme... and it's based on probably the most expensive Christmas apron I've ever seen! But for only $105, it CAN be yours, from pbyersdesign Etsy shop! It IS cute, though...

Here's my take... you can see it on my blog as well!


I know everyone is busy for the next few days, but over the weekend when you're tinkering with all your scrapping/stamping/paper-crafty goodies Santa brought you... maybe you'll have some time to play along!

Using Mister Linky below, please add your name & the direct link to your image! Any mis-linked creations are subject to deletion, but I will try to contact you if I have to delete it, so that you can try again! If Mr. Linky is still having trouble... you can leave a link in a comment, as well! Please have your project uploaded no later Sunday, December 27th at 11: 59 pm Central, if you wish to be considered for the colourQueen of the week. I'll make my pick on 12/28/09 (my birthday!), and post the winner who'll be able to display colourQ's colourQueen badge, and also be a future guest designer!

I wish you all a VERY MERRY CHIRSTMAS!!!!

colourQ challenge #11 ~ Winners Crowned...


Is it me, or do everyone's entries just keep getting better?!? You're right... it's not just me...


This week it was exceptionally hard to pick a winner, so I picked two! These two awesome ladies really caught my eye and their cards were just spot on! Please help me congratulate both...

STEPH


LEANNE
Steph's card with the button ornaments is so cute & I love how effortlessly perfect she used the colors! LeAnne (2nd week in a row!) added such fabulous detail of snowflakes that echoed through the card, that I thought was super swell! You can visit their blogs by clicking on their names or the images of their cards ~ so please hop on over and tell them congrats!


Below are the thumbnails of the other SUPER FAB entries... as always in alphabetical order, so go visit them as well & spread a little comment love! Everyone's entries are so wonderful, and definitely deserve a closer look!




Thank you again to everyone who participated this week! There will be a new challenge tomorrow, maybe you'll find a few moments to play along!


Bye for now...

colourQ challenge #11...



Wow, Christmas is almost here ~ YAY! For this week's inspiration, I saw this beautiful Amy Butler rug... and loved these colors! It reminds me of snowflakes! Although I didn't use any snowflakes, here's my take (more info on my blog):




And here are the fabulous cards of the first 2 to link, weren't they busy bees this morning? BTW ~ When you don't see any guest designers' cards, that means we'll have 2 Wild Cards for the week (the first 2 to link up)... so this week's colourQ Wild Card guest designers are... Julie & Melissa!




Make sure you go visit Julie & Melissa's blogs & leave them a little love! I know this is a busy time of year, but I hope you'll get to play!

colourQ challenge #10 ~ Winner Crowned...


Wow~ either everyone's busy with Christmas or these colors were not very enticing this week...lol! My apologies for the late post... I've lost power a couple times this evening & we're in the middle of major storms... may need a boat to get to work tomorrow... I wish I were kidding!We did have some very awesome entries though. I also forgot to link the inspiration pic to the site it came from... and when I went back to do it, they had sold out! This was a retro snowman cookie jar from Retro-Redheads.com.


I appreciate everyone that played along this week! You gals always manage to knock my socks off! I usually don't do much in the way of 3-D or packages, but this entry really made me wish I did! This week's colourQueen is....


Congrats to LeAnne & please check out LeAnne's awesome blog... she has amazing goodies & eye candy! Below are the entries from this week in alphabetical order... please click on the thumbnails to check them out!!! Oh and be sure to give them some 'comment love' while you're there!




Thanks again to all of you who played this week & rain or shine more rain - I'll be back with the next challenge soon!

colourQ challenge #10...


Good morning! Here's challenge #10 ~ YAY! I know, the colors appear to be difficult this week... but it IS a challenge, lol! I decided to use the colors in an image & then use them sparingly in cardstock & patterned papers & more details are on my blog. Here's my attempt...



Our two guest designers did a fabulous job, check these out! The first is Amy's, her ribbon rosette is so cool & I love that border punch! Next is Beverly's. She found a really cute way to incorporate "snow" into her snowflake! Aren't their cards awesome? Clicking on their pics will take you to their blogs... which you WILL want to do! They're both super talented ladies!



Now it's your turn! Using Mister Linkey below, please add your name & the direct link to your image! Any mis-linked creations are subject to deletion, but I will try to contact you if I have to delete it, so that you can try again! If Mr. Linky is still having trouble... you can leave a link in a comment, as well! Please have your project uploaded no later Sunday, December 13th at 11: 59 pm Central, if you wish to be considered for the colourQueen of the week. I'll make my pick on 12/14/09, and post the winner who'll be able to display colourQ's colourQueen badge, and also be a future guest designer!


Hope to see you around this week & thanks for stopping by!
