colourQ challenge #152...

Good morning! Thank you all so much for playing along last week! The demands of my job have changed recently and I have been travelling a lot and not getting home until later. I have been struggling to hang on! In order to continue doing all the things I love - I am having to do some re-structuring. If you play along with RetroSketches, then you know where I'm going with this.

Challenges will now be open until midnight on Mondays! YAY - that means a little longer to get your entries in! Winners will be announced a week later. SO - that means our winner from last week will be posted next Monday. That will hopefully give myself and our Royal Court more time to see/comment/vote on all the entries. I love you gals and feel bad when I can't comment like I want to - you all work so hard and I want you to know I appreciate it! I hope this change will be okay and I'm hoping since it's all in fun anyway, that it will be better than ever! Thank you so much for all your support!

On to today's inspiration! Our colors are inspired by this cute Owls Sky Duvet set over at EEK - SO adorable!

Here's my sample... (be sure to go check out my blog post for your chance to win!)

And from our amazing, hardworking and stupendous Royal Court.....



Time to get inky!!!

MONDAY, September 3rd at 12 midnight 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 use the palette provided for your project! 

You'll notice that a few of our designers use colors similar to the SU! colors listed in the palettes - just try to keep it close!

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 ***

I really hope you get a chance to play this week!

I think it's super that you are leaving the links opened longer to submit. I have used many of your wonderful color combos on my projects in the past, but I often miss the submitting deadline, so unfortauntely, they are not part of the gallery. Having the whole weekend to work on projects is going to be great. I'll try to submit more often! You have the best color challenges around!

Yay! Now that this challenge closes on Monday I'll be able to play more often! I hope life settles down for a you a little, Arielle and thanks for keeping up the challenge!

Longer entry time is great! Love playing along when I find time to as your combos are great! If you are overtaxed, you could also go to a two week period so you are just doing two a month - which I'm sure would take a lot of pressure off as well. Hugs to you a you seek to find a balance :)

I have always been a fan of this site; I will take whatever you can fit into your schedule just to keep it going. This Duvet set is FABULOUS and I love the colors. There is always wonderful inspiration when I come here!

So glad I could play along this week! Loved the colors and that inspiration photo! I wish I had me some owl stamps! LOL! Thanks to the DT for awesome inspiration as well!

I love when challenges have longer deadlines. With so many out there, its hard to participate all the timo.

Great challenge. This combination pushed my limits a bit. I would have never picked these colors on my own. Thank you for the inspiration.

Fun challenge!

Love the change in deadlines for this and retro. I can't tell you how often the only bit of time I have for crafting would fall into that silly day where one of your challenges had ended, but the new one hadn't started up yet. This way, there is always something going on, and I love that.
