CQC94 banner

Happy Tuesday, peeps! I am still recovering from convention, phew! So much information to absorb! I was happy to get some stamping time in just for fun, using Arielle’s ColourQ colors for today:


Perfect summertime colors, don’t you think? I totally CASEd a card from Kelly the Gingham Girl; I substituted Wild Wasabi for the Green Galore because I wanted to use the Patterns DP that I had, along with my little flag die. What do you think?


I did not put pearls on mine, but just strung the banners along some baker’s twine, then added a button, some embossing and a sentiment from Happiest Birthday Wishes:

I used my markers to color in this fun sentiment from the same set!

I hope you’ll find these yummy summer colors to your liking and that you’ll play along with us. Sashay on over to the CQC blog and strut your stuff; you might just be crowned the QUEEN!
