colourQ challenge #147...

Good morning! Thank you all so much for your gorgeous entries last week - they ROCK! Running a bit late this morning, so the winners will be up shortly. You might have seen on my blog, my hubby tore his calf muscle last week, so he's been couch-ridden. Getting EVERYTHING done is hard work! Sorry I'm running so behind! 

We have some sad news today - this is Suzanne's last post! She's been making gorgeous cards here at the "Q" for a year and a half now ~ whew, where does the time go? She is so talented and so sweet, I am really going to miss her! Please stop by her blog and wish her well!

We also have some happy news, too~ Tracey McNeely is starting today and debuting her first card as a Royal Court member. She has been a faithful participant for ages! She is also amazingly talented and a very sweet soul, and I am so thrilled to have her! Please stop by and welcome her to the team!

Our colors today were inspired by this Klippan Retro Fish Tea Towel over at Huset. These colors just screamed "pick me, pick me!!!" So I did.

Here's my sample...

And from our ever~amazingly~creative Royal Court...




Time to get crafty!!!

ENTRY DEADLINE is SUNDAY, July 29th 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 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!

Great colors and great cards from the dt this week, thanks! I also love the Hey Girl update, poor Ryan with no Kiwi Kiss! I would have taken him some...

I had never done a challenge until last week, I entered one. So, today I was up for doing it again. I combined a couple challenges, making it even more fun, but it was your color inspiration that really got me going. I don't mind using retired colors, but I also decided to substitute current colors on one of my cards. THANKS to all of your team who INSPIRE us to be CREATIVE.
