ColourQ Tuesday #48

Hi Stamping Friends!  It's Tuesday and that means it's time for another challenge over at the COLOURQ.  Arielle is not kidding when she says challenge!  I didn't know what I wanted to do with these colors.  The Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango inspired me to think citrus, so I pulled out my much unloved set, Tart and Tangy.  I'm not sure when's the last time it's seen ink.  And it is so cute.  When I first got it, I used it all the time.  But you get new stamps and you need to use them and your old favorites somehow end up on the bottom of the pile.  If only there were more stamping hours in the day.  Then none of my sets would go unused!

TART AND TANGY

I wanted to keep things clean, so the colors would just pop off the card.  I had stamped and punched out all my citrus circles, when it dawned on me that I had new STampin' Up! buttons in coordinating colors.  When I attached the buttons, the fruit took on the appearance of a flower.  Isn't that fun?!  I used Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #126 for this card.  I love the faux stitching, but would rather have real stitching.  Someday I'll have space for a sewing machine.  Is it too early to plan on when the children leave the house so I can have a craft room?  I suppose it is, since my oldest is only 14.  :)  The little "hello" sentiment comes from the Hello Again set.  It's such a cute little stamp.

That's all for today.  Stop back by in Thursday for the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge, where we celebrate all of lifes little moments!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
