ColourQ127

It’s Tuesday and that means ColourQ!  Here’s our beautiful color combo from Arielle today:

My sweet friend Wendie let me borrow her new SU set Mouthwatering, along with the cool scented embossing powders that go with it!  A perfect set for this challenge:

CQC127-LeAnne

It’s hard to tell here, but the watermelon was inked first in Versamark, then again in Calypso Coral, then embossed with the Melon Embossing Powder.  It really does smell yummy!

I added some fun polka dot papers, some embossing, and a little bird.  How about those seeds?  I used my Triple Layer Blossom punch with some Chocolate Chip cardstock – they’re from the center of the flower!  I have been waiting for just the right chance to use them on something!  And this cool sketch is from Arielle as well!  She’s started a sketch blog called Retro Sketches, and this is the first one!  Isn’t this cool:

I had a lot of fun playing with this one!  If you have any questions about what I used for my card, feel free to email me—my address is on the right sidebar!  Meanwhile, I hope you can play with us too.  We have had so many wonderful creations lately, it’s getting more & more difficult to choose winners!!!  That’s a good thing, I guess!  So be sure to hop over to the CQC blog to see what Arielle and the other designers have come up with this week!

I don’t have a changing table, so we have a little “station” set up on the spare bed; apparently Pumpkin thought it was a good spot to nap!!

She is learning to be “nice” to the kitty!  Especially while she is sleeping!

  4. Very cute- the bird's a nice touch. :) I have some of the "smell-em" powders on my SU shopping list- looking forward to getting and trying them. Pumpkin is doing better than our one cat. "She" is ok with Liam more or less. He can touch her once or twice before she's done but she'll lay on me while I read to him at night and won't budge in the hall if he goes by. "He" on the other hand still won't Liam within 4 steps of him. Given that Liam's now over 4 1/2, we've got a cat developing serious neuroses on our hands. Cat is SO jumpy. :)

  18. Fabulous card, LeAnne! You are right this was the perfect stamp for these colors and for the sketch as well. No I don't do know how to do everything, I just try and do what I can better, but thanks for the compliment and sketches really come hard for me! I love all your pictures of Cassidy, but I love this one with her kitty!
