ColourQ #53

Hi Stamping Friends! 

You know the old saying, "Better late than never."?  Well that's the story of my life right now!  Typically, I am not a person who likes to be late.  I have a friend who is (almost) always late to everything!  We know this and expect it and love her anyway.  :)  But I'm not usually like that... not usually!  Except somehow I jumped on this merry-go-round called "high school aged child" and I don't know when I'm going to get off!  So until it slows down, (which doesn't look like anytime soon!) I'm thinking I might be late more often than I like!

Thankfully, Arielle over at the ColourQ is one of those super sweet, little southern gals.  (She called me once and I just melted over her southern accent!)  And she is soooooo accomodating to  flaky  busy moms like myself.  So just this morning (it IS still morning on the west coast!) I whipped up this card and was actually happy with how it turned out!

Such super fun colors this week!!  The card base is Baja Breeze layered with a piece of Island Oasis DSP.  The Pear Pizzazz DSP is from the In Color Paper Stack.  The Baja flower is made using the Cherry Blossom Sizzlet Die.  And the "hello" sentiment comes from the Hello Again set.  I got this set free during SAB last year and the only stamp I've used so far is this one.  But I've used it a TON of times!  I love that one little word.  :)  Of course in a rush like this to make a card, there was no way I could come up with a sketch of my own, so I used the Karen Giron's sketch over at the sweetest thing blog.

I hope you can play along with us this week over at the ColourQ.  Remember, don't be late like me!  Link your card by Sunday at noon and you could be crowned the next Colour Queen!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!

Love the teetering tower of birdcages! Hooty looks a little worried to be at the bottom of it all, though. . . . .

I am impressed with your speedy "recovery" lol! I am a veteran mom of a high schooler. Actually I had 3 in high school at one time. Down to one 8th grader and all I can say is thank God for teenagers kids with a license! I feel your pain, lol ;-) I'm with Holly/InkPaperStamps...that owl DOES look worried!

Great card! Looks like you work well under pressure! A school permit has made all the difference for us this year with the High School stuff!
