colourQ challenge #43...


Whew, I'm draggin' this morning ~ I literally hit the snooze button for almost an hour - lol! Maisie was up late very congested & miserable, so my whole "blogging" schedule was pushed back!

WELCOME to week #43 here at the colourQ!!! It's so amazing seeing everyone's entries each week - they just get BETTER & BETTER!!! That's the goal right? To sharpen our skills, challenge ourselves & learn from every blog we come across? Oh yeah - and HAVE FUN! This week's inspiration comes from Saks Fifth Avenue, the Milly Chevron Beach Blanket with Pillow. Not only did I like the colors, I was impressed that someone was trying to sell a beach blanket for $375.00! I'll take two! [sarcasm] Anyway, I was delighted to find that it's now on sale, for a mere $186.99. Still a little out of my price range... but at least we got some crafty inspiration from it, right?

Here's my take...


And from our lovely & super wildly talented colourQ Royal Court:

READY - START YOUR ENGINES...

ENTRY DEADLINE is Sunday, August 1st 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***

Have an awesome week!!!

colourQ challenge #42 ~ Winners Crowned...


You gals really rocked these colors last week!!! Some of you saw these colors and thought of fall, some thought of summer and one even thought of the 70's - Keep on truckin'! Well, I was born in the 70's, and I wish I could say I loved it... disco & tacky, awkward clothes... aahhh, I digress. But I DID LOVE these colors! Once again this week there was a tie for colourQueen... you'd think between all the votes, that wouldn't happen! I'd like to congratulate two ladies this week, a HUGE CONGRATS to...


& Lisa!!!


And of all the incredible entries this week, we narrowed it down to the following... this week's colourQ Courtiers:



As always, you can click on any of the thumbnails to see the full cards & visit each participant's blog! Isn't this just a fabulous splash of colors?!? So many beautiful techniques this week throughout the entire gallery! I also loved Debbie's paper pieced apron, awesome coloring by Melanie & Pam, and Colleen's flower wreath, to name a few!

Thank you so much to everyone for playing along & showing us your tremendous talents!

See you in the AM for a new challenge!!!

colourQ challenge #42...

WOOHOO ~ please let me say again, we were SO BLOWN AWAY this past week with all the entries... not only were they INCREDIBLE, there were SO MANY - 60!!!!! That broke all kinds of records around here! THANK YOU ALL for playing along - you're the "AWESOMEST"!


Today's color inspiration comes from Lil' Squirtz, this cutie-patootie skirt! Anyone who knows me knows I'm a skirt girl... I used to have about 45 in my closet, but never fear, I have downsized & only have about half that many now - lol! Besides this one is for toddlers, too small for me anyway!

Here's my take on today's colors:


And once again, the Royal Court design team blew this challenge away with these beauties:
