Happy Tuesday, peeps! Boy, I don’t know what is wrong with me lately, I just can’t seem to maneuver my creativity into anything worthwhile! It takes me two tries just to get something close to what I like! Today’s creation is no different for the cute ColourQ challenge that Arielle has for us. Check it out:
Aren’t these little dudes cute? I had a bazillion ideas swirling around in my head and nothing was working! I think I had Live Nativity/rain cancellation/cookie & hot chocolate overload on my brain, LOL! This is my SECOND stab at this; it’s a little tag for a gift that I made for a local nursing home resident (we sponsor them at our Curves):
I had a little narrow scrap of Naturals White cardstock in my folder, I just scored & folded it in half and added bells in the challenge colors, then “strung” them along with some red embroidery floss! I added a simple sentiment and it’s all ready to attach to my package!
Now, here is the first attempt at using these colors:
A cute little Penny Black image, but there is just something about it that is lacking; I think adding the Lucky Limeade to the tree made me go “ick” instead of “wow”!!! I love Sage Shadow, too….one of my favorite colors, and I was so sad when it retired. I’ll still use the card, cuz I think this image is adorable!
Now….what can YOU create with these colors? All the design team samples are available to view on the ColourQ blog, and we’d sure love to see yours on there as well! Can’t wait! And remember, if you have any questions, just shoot me an email!
Over my busy weekend, my SIL gave my brother a surprise 50th birthday party. My dad drove the 2-hour ride up and hung out at my house (along with my sister who flew up from SC!) and while we were waiting, I made some sugar cookies. I decided to put him to work:
Although I believe whatever artistic talent I possess came from my dad’s genes, I doubt very much that his artistic escapades ever included decorating cookies! But he did a good job and they’re all ready to give out as gifts in the next couple of weeks! And Cassidy got in the act, “helping” me with wrapping:
Enjoy your day!
