colourQ challenge #52... WOOOHOOO!!!


HAPPY BIRTHDAY COLOURQ!!! When I say that I cannot BELIEVE it's been a year, I mean it!
We have had SO MANY fabulous people play along with us each week, and I have been SO BLESSED to get to know so many of you and now think of you as dear friends!

Today's challenge is a little different... some of you may have just joined us, some of you are "old-timers"... but regardless, our challenge for today is to use the above sketch & pick your favorite colourQ challenge from the past! There is a visual list over on the right sidebar to help you choose!

For those who play along, posting the color swatch they used along with challenge sketch (you'll have both in your post) and leaving a comment on each DT's blog, I'll randomly draw from those folks to get a winner of a FABULOUS $25 prize! AND - the colourQueen from this challenge will become a member of the Royal Court DT until the end of the year! How cool is that?!?

Here's my take on this week's challenge! In honor of all the scrappers that might be peeking in since the CK article, I used the sketch to do a digital scrap page, more info on my blog...


And from our SUPER SPECTACULAR Royal Court DT...

Now help us celebrate & show us what you got!!!

ENTRY DEADLINE is Sunday, October 3rd 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!

TO BE ELIGIBLE for the prize this week, you MUST pick a colourQ challenge from the past year to go with the sketch & display BOTH swatches on your blog along with your card. Also, you must leave a sweet comment on each of our DT's blogs. I will randomly choose a participant from this week's challenge, snoop around to make sure the rules were followed - lol! That person will win a $25 gift certificate from either Papertrey Ink, Stampin' Up!, twopeasinabucket.com or jessicaspague.com!

*** 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*

Bye for now~ and thanks for joining us for all the fun this year!!!

colourQ challenge Spotlighted by Creating Keepsakes!

Months and months ago I got an email from an editor at Creating Keepsakes - they wanted to do a spotlight on the colourQ! It's one of those things that seems sorta too-good-to-be-true, so I didn't want to get my hopes up too much...

BUT HERE IT IS!!! How SUPER COOL is THAT?!? It's on page 16... I haven't gotten my issue yet, but Sylvia did & she was so sweet to send me a pic of it!


But you gals who play with us each week already KNEW we were cool, huh? Thanks SO MUCH to all of you, you not only make it fun each week, we wouldn't be here without YOU!!!



colourQ challenge #50 ~ Winner Crowned...


Such gorgeous entries this last week - you gals were giving my gals FITS trying to pick winners! They did manage to narrow it down, and this week's colourQueen for her rockin' use of the challenge colors is...


And also a huge congrats to our colourQ Courtiers...


And since it's only been a few minutes since I confessed that I'm STILL behind, I'll also be linking these, and replacing them with pretty little thumbnails later this week.

See you in the morning with next week's challenge~

colourQ challenge #49 ~ Winner Crowned...


Thank you all so much for playing, and my apologies for not getting the winners up sooner. One of my co-workers passed away last week, unexpectedly. She's was a sweet gal, only a year older than me... I was already behind last week when Tuesday rolled around, and after the news I just lost my motivation.

A lot of you seemed to enjoy these colors - I'm so glad! Occasionally the designers all gravitate towards a card, and for this challenge our colourQueen is a winner for the second week in a row... please congratulate for this intricately breathtaking card:


And also a shout out to our colourQ Courtiers:


I'm still behind, so I'll be linking these later... But I hope you'll check back later in the week when I do so you can go visit them!


THE FINE PRINT
