colourQ challenge #87...


Happy Tuesday!!! I fell in love with these colors the minute I saw them... actually they kinda reminded me of the late 60's / early 70's... the inspiration comes from a tutorial on making these cute HOOT! Felt Owls, over at FactoryDirectCraft. So after you make your card, you can make a cute owl, too!

Here's my sample:


And from our always amazingly talented Royal Court...

Suzanne

Sylvia

Let's see you get GROOV~Y!!!

ENTRY DEADLINE is SUNDAY, June 5th 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 a great week!!!

Good morning! I know everything here at colourQ is running late, but I figured the Royal Court deserved a holiday weekend, too!

WOW - the entries this past week were amazing, yet again! You gals are really doing some amazing things with these challenges!!! Our colourQueen this week made an adorable, summer~y card - and we just couldn't resist giving this week's crown to....


And isn't this a gorgeous gallery from our colourQ Courtiers?

colourQ challenge #86...


Good morning everyone! We have a heaping slice of summer for you today inspired by these darling Little Sunshine Flip Flop socks by Jazzytoes! I have been a big fan of Jazzytoes for a few years, both my kids had them when they were babies! I just wish they made them adult size... with these I'd always have a perfect pedicure - LOL!

Did you see last week's gallery of entries? In one word - FANTABULOUS!!!! Thank you all again for playing along!!!

Here's my sample this week:


And from the Royal Court, these amazing creations....

PLEASE HELP!!!

Good morning, I'll be posing the new challenge shortly, but I wanted to ask for a little help!


We'll be reaching 500 email subscribers by the end of the day (WOOHOO!!!) and I just realized that once that happens, I'll have to start paying even more for my current newsletter service! YIKES!

I have deleted the signup for the old service and it will remain active for 3 more weeks. You will continue to get updates via Feedblitz until that time.

If you'll look over at the top of the right sidebar, there is a new subscription box. If you would like to continue receiving updates from colourQ, please take a moment to sign up with the new service. I (and my pocketbook) would appreciate it so much! I cannot and will not export any emails to the new service, so if you don't re-subscribe, your updates will be discontinued in three weeks.

Thank you so much for your understanding, and I really hope you'll choose to use the new email service!

HUGS,

colourQ challenge #85 ~ Winner Crowned...


I have to say, this has been one of THOSE weeks.... they don't come around too often - a week that EVERY entry could have so easily become the colourQueen. When I looked at the gallery of entries Sunday and posted the voting thread for the DT, I wished them luck choosing. I knew it would be tough, and it was! We decided, though... and this week's colourQueen, with a beautiful handmade flower (her first of this type) is.....

And our spectacular gallery of colourQ Courtiers...


I know these colors were a little off the beaten path for you gals, but as always - YOU ROCKED 'EM!!!

Thanks so much to all who played, you are all a continuous font of inspiration!!!

Love and hugs,

THE FINE PRINT
