ColourQ153 with Fab Friday 01


Woohoo!  Tuesday is upon us, back to “normal” life!  Hope everyone had a great Labor Day—it was quite relaxing for us, even though the weather was not very cooperative!

Arielle has a yummy color combo for us today—the possibilities are endless:


My niece had a baby boy while we were away, so of course, I took advantage of these colors to make her family a little “welcome baby” card.  This is a small notecard size, 3 1/2 x 5”:


I have been patiently waiting to use this little star stamp I recently acquired, and it fit perfectly with a retired SU sentiment from Small Sayings!  I colored all the stars and then glittered them up for some “twinkle”!


And since my bottom panel looked a little bare, I added a little extra star down below!


And there’s a new challenge in town:  Fab Friday!  This uses their very first sketch:

I hope you’ll scoot on over to the ColourQ blog to see what the others came up with using these fab colors!  And I hope you can find time in your schedule to play with us too!  Can’t wait to see you there!

I wish I could give you the audio that went along with this adventure of Cassidy’s (just excuse my stained pots & pans!!!):



Enjoy your day!  If you have any questions about my card, just shoot me an email!

  14. Sweet baby card! I made a card for this challenge too but still have to get a photo!
    Cassidy reminds me of my daughter when she was little. She loved playing in the kitchen with anything she could find. She poured parsley into my baking soda because she thought the green and white looked pretty together! LOL

  15. Adorable card LeAnne! And that Cassidy knows how to have fun. I would have loved the audio. So cute.

  20. LOVE the little star that appears to be dangling! I never would have thought of these colors for a baby carted, but this is PERFECT! Thanks for popping by my blog, LeAnne. My boys always loved the pots and pans when they were Cassidy's age, too! Look like Ariel when I'm swimming? HAHAHAHA, literally LOL, not SO much! ;D
