ColourQ 209


Happy Tuesday, peeps!  Wow, it’s finally October!  I love this month!  Today’s inspiration photo from Arielle for the ColourQ is a real eye-opener!  What do you think?

I’d be a cheerful chick in the kitchen if I had this fun apron!  Speaking of which, I am finding I HAVE to use an apron in the kitchen lately…otherwise, what a slob I am!  Seriously!  I can’t tell you how many shirts I ruined over the last month!  So anyway, I went sort of literal, combining a buncha stuff for my card today:

I did use Coastal Cabana because I couldn’t find any Cool Caribbean cardstock, which really probably wouldn’t have mattered!  I used a plethora of stamps (see the list below), including My Digital Studio for the chicken wire background, which I printed in Pumpkin Pie!  My little scene was stamped in the challenge colors and put in a little polaroid window that I cut down a wee bit to fit!  I pinked my little “fabric scraps” and added my little chicken:


which I hope gave this card a down-home country feel!


And of course, after my card was all complete, I dropped my inky stamp onto the finished inside of the card, causing me to have to “piece” my sentiment!!!  Oh well!  Still worked out okay!


I couldn’t wait to see what the design team created with these colors, and you won’t be disappointed either!  Be sure to hop on over to the ColourQ blog to see what they did and share your creation with us too!
A few weeks ago I picked up some of Cassidy’s toys and had put them in a big tote in the basement.  JOY is finding your little phone again:


LOL—I know the picture is blurry, but it almost looks like she has stars in her eyes….and she is so excited, it cracks me up!  Enjoy your day---hopefully yours will be exciting too!
