colourQ challenge #39...


Welcome to the colourQ Challenge number 39 - can you believe it's been 39 weeks? That's so crazy! Since it's the week of the 4th, I thought it would be appropriate to play with red & blue this week, and as usual - not just ANY red & blue would do! I found this super cute pin cushion over at Etsy in warmnfuzzies' shop, it's SO ADORABLE!!!

So here is my take...


I have the pleasure of introducing a new DT member this morning as well! Sylvia has been chosen colourQueen a couple times here, and her work is not only SUPERB, but also extremely creative. I first encountered her on another challenge and was in awe over the card she'd made! So here's Sylvia first challenge with us - I'm SO HAPPY she's a part of the Royal Court...

Sylvia


And as always, our Royal Court DT has created some FABULOUS MASTERPIECES for you today...

SO HERE'S YOUR INVITE TO CELEBRATE THE 4th of JULY WITH US!

ENTRY DEADLINE is Sunday, July4th at 12 noon CST, to be considered for colourQueen! If you miss the deadline but still want to link up, InLinkz will re-open the next day, so you can play with any of the previous colors anytime. You must be linked before the deadline to be in the running for colourQueen, though!

PLEASE focus on the challenge colors for your project!

Using InLinkz, link to the actual post/gallery page your project is in, and select the thumbnail image of your project.

Any mis-linked entries are subject to deletion, but I'll try to let you know if there's a problem!

*** Just so you know, InLinkz is not fool-proof, some of you may not be able to post the thumbnail of your card... if not, link your profile picture. But if you CAN post the thumbnail of your card, please do! If I have time I will go back & 'fix' the Inlinkz for those of you who cannot get your project thumbnail to post, oky-doky? If I do "fix" it for you, your thumbnail may be moved to a different position on the entry list***

Guest designers will resume next week, since I didn't want to steal any of Sylvia's thunder - lol! If you have previously been a colourQueen & haven't had the chance to email your email address, please do! That will make it easier for me to reach you & hopefully my emails won't end up in your SPAM!

Hope you get a chance to play along this week!

colourQ challenge #38 ~ Winner Crowned...


THANK YOU SO MUCH for all your awesome entries last week! We had such a wonderful time visiting all of you, YOU'RE THE BEST!!!

It's funny, the DT are all fairly different in their styles, but it was fairly unanimous this week that our colorQueen this week for such a simple & elegant card would be...


And here they are (in the order they entered) the latest & greatest colourQ Courtiers!




Please go make Mary's day & visit her & leave her some love! Also you can see the full cards of the colourQ Courtiers by clicking on the thumbnails!

Besides being a mom to a 2 year old & a 5.5 month old, hosting this challenge is one of the most exciting/rewarding things that I do! And it wouldn't be possible without all of you! From my super awesome design team to the amazingly talented group of gals that play along with us each week... YOU MAKE THIS FUN!!!

See you in the morning (kinda late~ish... maybe mid-morning? hey - you could sleep in...) for another swell challenge...

Bye for now...

colourQ challenge #38...


HAPPY COLOURQ TUESDAY! We have some SUPER SWELL colors for you this week! I really hope you'll play along with us! Today's color palette is inspired by some very cute~sy dishes, Flora & Fauna Melamine Plates over at Uncommon Goods! Who wouldn't want a tasty snack off these babies?!? My dear friend, neighbor and colourQ DT member Tanja moved back to Germany this past weekend, and until the ship containing her things arrives, she's gonna be off the radar! I can't wait til she gets back to stamping! I miss you already Tanja!

Here's my take on today's colors...


And here are samples from the TREMENDOUSLY TALENTED Royal Court...

We have a Guest Designer today - yay! It's none other than former colourQueen,
Jeannie Kupsh!
Once you visit her blog, Jeannie's Happy World, you'll see that Jeannie has always considered herself a queen, lol! She's a sweet gal, and since her family is about to move to Italy, I wanted to give her a chance to be featured here before her adventures abroad begin! I'm so pleased to present her work here today, she did a fabulous job! Please go pay her a visit!


I realize that I jumped ahead of some previous colourQueens, but starting next week I'll be contacting our previous winners each week in the order in which they were crowned, to invite them to be the featured Guest Designer. So please stay tuned if you're a previous winner! Actually, if you are a previous winner, could you please send me your email address? That would make it so much easier to contact you! My email is snappystamper@yahoo.com.

So now it's time for you to put on your thinking cap & play along!

ENTRY DEADLINE is Sunday, June 27th at 12 noon CST, to be considered for colourQueen! If you miss the deadline but still want to link up, InLinkz will re-open the next day, so you can play with any of the previous colors anytime. You must be linked before the deadline to be in the running for colourQueen, though!

PLEASE focus on the challenge colors for your project!

colourQ challenge #37...


Happy happy Tuesday! Your brilliant entries just keeping getting better & better, which just makes it that much harder to vote each week - lol! Today's colors are from www.katagolda.com, a scrumptious little felt covered photo binder called 'anemone' (it's on page 4). I WANT ONE!!!

Sorry about the lateness... it's taken me most of the morning to recover from bible school last night - I'm in charge of music plus I had 10 children ages 2&3 in my class... including my little bull-in-a-china-shop, Alex! Calgon, take me away.... It was fun, but challenging, 1 down & 4 nights to go!

Here's my sample for today's challenge... I used the Mission 4 Macie digi... she's SO CUTE & versatile!


And here are the super fabulous (as always) samples from our Royal Court DT:
