ColourQ #35

Hi Stamping Friends!

Better late than never!  We went to a BBQ yesterday afternoon at our good friends' beautiful home and by the time we got back, I didn't feel like getting my blog post together.  So this morning it is!  Arielle gave us some fun, bright summery colors to play with this week at the COLOURQShe also has a fun twist to this week's challenge.  She joined up with Mercy Kerin from Lord Have Mercy to combine their weekly challenges.  Mercy always has the best sketch challenges and this week is no different!  It was kind of exciting to get her sketch challenge early.


If you squint real hard or use your imagination, pretend that dingy greenish gray background on my card is a nice bright brilliant white.  Then it might not look so horrible!  Yet again, bad photography skills have ruined the look of this cute card.  Sigh!  What's a girl in a hurry supposed to do?

I decided to flip the sketch on its side.  I used the set Good Friend (which I just found out this morning will be retired from the SU! catalog!!).  It's such a cheerful little set.  I thought it would be perfect for these colors.  I still have scraps of Tangerine Tango DSP laying around, so I used one of those.  I think this piece was from the Hawaiian Papaya pack.  It was one of my faves.  I'm happy that Tangerine Tango is replacing Only Orange.  I think it's a great addition to our Core Colors.

Be sure to check out the other Royal Court DT members fabulous creations.  And I hope you'll be able to play along with us this week at the ColourQ!  If you are looking for more stamping challenges, be sure to stop by Thursday and see what I've created for the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge.
