ColourQ #67


Hi Stamping Friends!!
Isn't that that the cutest little tushie you ever did see?!  And let's be honest, with darling little underpanties like those, it's meant to be seen!!  I love the cheerful colors in this week's ColourQ challenge.  They are so bright and colorful.  And I need some brightness in my world right now.  Until yesterday, we hadn't seen the sun since Christmas.  Yes, Christmas!!!  It rained for awhile, and since I live in a valley (it's a huge valley, but it still has mountains on all sides), the moisture just stayed around as fog and overcast skies.  I'm ready for some color!!

PARTY HEARTY   #111532   $26.95



I had so much fun making this card!!  I've seen some fabulous collages that I've been admiring, and that is what inspired this card.  That, and the fabulous sketch challenge over at Stampin' Addicts.  Come over and check us out sometime!  It's the friendliest, little Stampin' Up! community where their motto is: Postively Creative!  Positively Stampin' Up!  This is sketch challenge 78 SASC78.

I made another birthday for my bakery stash.  Wouldn't it be cool if today was your birthday: 1-11-11?!  That would be an easy birthdate to remember!  The card base is Taken With Teal, layered with Kiwi Kiss (so glad I still have some retired SU! cardstock!), and then Whisper White.  I have no idea what all the DSP is from.  I know it is all retired SU! stuff.  The little present stamp is from the Party Hearty Set, and the sentiment is from the Birthday Bliss set.  I also used the Dot, Dot, Dot stamp on the Taken With Teal square.  The super fun ribbon is also retired SU!  I'm a sucker for polka dots.  I think it came from one of those Ribbon Original packs.  Loved the ribbons in those!  Lots of fun embellishments.  Most of those are current, except for the Kiwi Corduroy Button, that is retired.

Be sure and check out the ColourQ this week.  Arielle added an entire scrapbook Design Team!!  So go give them a friendly welcome and then play along.  You could brighten your winter blues too!

Tomorrow I will have a My Digital Studio scrapbook layout using the ColourQ colors.  Well, most of the colors.  Well actually only Kiwi Kiss, but the others are shades of the challenge colors!  And only 2 more days before we start celebrating over at the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge!!  No need to RSVP, just show up on Thursday and join the fun!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!

I don't know what's more adorable??!!?? The baby's bottom with the tutu or the card you made! I'd love to know where Arielle finds some of her photos. Love the card and all the interesting elements in the colorful boxes.
