Top o’the morning to you this Tuesday! It’s ColourQ day—yippee! Here’s a sweet little color combo to tempt you:
I had to laugh at myself when I posted this card, as I used a very similar square theme for last week’s card! No, I’m not in a rut, am I?
Truth be told, I was using sketch #57 from Cardabilities, since my friend Lesley is now on their DT:
So you can see why I used squares again! For my CAS card, I pulled out some fun Basic Grey papers from Marrakesh and Nook & Pantry because they had the sort of gypsy feel to them inspired by the shirt in the photo. I used the small heart punch to pop up a heart in three of the squares:
and honestly, I had no idea what sentiment I was going to use…..birthday? get well? Then I remembered the Quilters Sampler Sentiment set from PTI, and it seemed to work pretty well, so I stamped it in Basic Gray:
I added a heart from a PTI Valentine set and a needle from a retired CHF set, then hand-drew some thread. This just makes me smile. I hope you’ll play along with us this week and create something that makes YOU smile! Share it with us on the CQC blog where you can see all the divine creations the others have come up with as well! Edited to add: This also qualifies for the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge #124, quilting!
My DD sent us a few pictures from vacation; here’s one from their hotel; note the stuffed animals looking out the window as well:
Thanks for visiting today!
