colourQ challenge #65...

WOW~ the last colourQ of the year!!! How amazing - it went by so fast! I hope all of you have enjoyed playing along as much as I have enjoyed finding challenges each week! Here's to another 52!!!

Our inspiration today comes from this SUPER gorgeous "Sari Scarf with Ivory" from Artful Home.... I wish I had $300 dollars to blow - lol! Why aren't all the movie stars wearing these on the red carpet?!? Martha Stewart - I know you are reading this and could whip one of these up in 5 minutes... can we get a simple tutorial please?

Here's my take on this week's colors...


And look at these beautiful cards from our ever-inspired Royal Court DT...

Time to put those new goodies Santa brought you to good use!!!


ENTRY DEADLINE is SUNDAY, January 2nd 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!

Please display our palette badge, but at the VERY least, you MUST put a link in your post back to this challenge~ Thank you!

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 & see you in the New Year!!!

colourQ challenge #64 ~ Winner Crowned...


Hello! I'm so glad I extended this week's linky deadline so that more of you could play along! I hope you had an amazing Christmas!!! All the entries were just beautiful, as usual! I myself play with a lot of challenges, and I think the talent here is by far the best! Thank you all so much for playing with us!!!

Well, once all the votes were in this afternoon, one number kept popping up - lucky #13! The Royal Court was really groovin' on some clean & simple this week! Please help me give a HUGE CONGRATS to this week's colourQueen...

colourQ challenge #64...


We're in the home-stretch folks!!! I start anticipating Christmas in the fall each year, and initially the time goes slowly.... but once Thanksgiving is over it seems that Christmas is the next weekend! I hate the shopping, but love the time with family, baking cookies, stringing lights, singing Christmas carols, playing secret Santa, all the church activities... that's the part of Christmas that I wish would never end. The part that should last all year long - the SPIRIT of Christmas!

We have some pretty colors for you today, inspired by this holiday decor idea using ribbon from Better Homes and Gardens online. If you're like me, you have ribbon coming out your nose most of the time, so go over and see what else you could be doing with ribbon!

Here's my ribbon-laden take on this week's colors:


And from our talented as ever Royal Court:

Well! Didn't we have fun this past week with these colors?!? YOU GALS & GUY DID AN INK~redible JOB!!! The voting this week was SO CLOSE, closer than it's been in a while! With so many gorgeous entries, we simply couldn't narrow it down any more.... so without further ado, please help me congratulate ALL THREE of this week's colourQueens...



And our super talented colourQ Courtiers...


Thank you all SO MUCH for playing along! I did visit all your blogs, but was too rushed to leave comments - yet! I'll be back around tomorrow afternoon to leave you some love & I hope everyone else will browse around and spread some joy as well!

See you around 10 AM tomorrow for the next challenge!

colourQ challenge #63...


Woohoo - we're getting closer!!! I'm late this morning because Alex had his first ever Christmas Pageant - that's right! My baby was the only kiddo up there with a pacifier in his mouth!!! But the good news is he sat still, didn't harm anyone or himself (lol) or make a spectacle of himself in any other way shape or form! That's amazing for an active 2 1/2 year old!

We have some fantastic colors for you today, inspired by these super cutesie 'Comfort & Joy' cocktail napkins from World Market!

I seem to be on a tag making tear these days, which is awesome since I can use up the hoards of scrap papers that I so carefully pack~rat away... so here's another one:


We have another DT member starting next week, Suzanne Bier! Suzanne is a terrific artist and former colourQueen and colourQ Courtier many times over... please help me welcome her!

Here are the gorgeous projects from our Royal Court...
