1 Colour Q and 2 Sketches

Hi Stamping Friends!

Well I just fell in love with the color challenge over at Arielle's Colour Q blog.  Check this out:

Isn't this a fabulous image?!  I think she said this fabric is called Figgy Pudding.  Well whatever it's name is, it's gorgeous!  I loved these colors so much, I decided to make two cards for this color challenge.  I filed through all my sketch challenge blogs and found two sketches to use.  The first is the Sweet Sunday Sketch from Karen Giron's blog the sweetest thing SSSC45. The second sketch is the Mojo Monday challenge MOJO114. 

And here are my two cards:

I told myself I was NOT going to post any more Christmas cards until AFTER Thanksgiving, but with these fabulous colors, how could I resist?!  On both cards the card base is Always Artichoke, layered with Bashful Blue.  The Old Olive colored DSP is from the Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper Pack.  The top card uses the Delightful Decorations set and Four The Holidays, both from The Holiday Mini Catalog.  The second card uses the Patterned Pines set that is a Level 1 Hostess Set in the Holiday Mini Catalog.

Be sure to check out the color challenge next week at the Colour Q blog, because I get to be the Guest Designer!  Arielle already sent me next's week image, to work with, and let me tell you, I LOVE it.  I have about 3 or 4 card ideas floating around in my head.  So make sure you stop by my blog next Tuesday morning and see what I come up with.

In honor of this being Thanksgiving week, each day I'm posting something I'm thankful for.  So today I picked my wonderful family: mom, dad, siblings, in-laws, nieces, nephews.  It's always such a blessing when the people you are related to, are not just family, they're also your friends.  I can't wait to hang-out with everyone on Thanksgiving at my sister's house.  We can talk, laugh, and eat.  And then when we leave, we'll probably complain about each other just a little bit, but that won't stop us from doing it again next time.  My family is dependable, hard-working, and fun.  I'm thankful to God for each and every member.
