ColourQ202 & CCMC263


Happy Tuesday, peeps!  Popping in today with another ColourQ challenge:

I was wishing I had one of those big doily stamps, but I decided to go a different route and use a new SU set, A Round Array:

LeAnne Pugliese_CQC202 Wee Inklings A Round Array

I combined it with some various DPs in the challenge colors, stamping each little element in Basic Gray and Ruby Red, then cutting out the centers and popping them up:


I also used the cool sketch from this week’s Create with Connie & Mary:


For some added interest, I embossed diagonal lines on the card front, added some washi tape, baker’s twine, ribbon and candy dots!  The sentiment is from Remembering Your Birthday.   I like that this isn’t frilly & girly…..but still a fun birthday card.  I have a few friends that might like this card!  Hope you can play with us this week—can’t wait to see what you come up with once you slap on your creative thinking cap!

Cassidy was helping Grampy spread stone with her own little pink shovel:

And when she found one that was too big, she was a big helper, and put it in the bucket of the tractor:

Thanks for stopping by!
