ColourQ68 & FTL123


Happy Tuesday, peeps!  Another ColourQ challenge coming your way!  What do you think of these colors:


Unfortunately, I am not too good at using floral images on my cards, so I went with something a little more abstract today!  I used the Fall to Layout#123:


to make a get-well card for a young lady in our congregation who had to have emergency appendectomy surgery this week!


Pretty straightforward; I used the Beautiful Wings embosslit for my butterflies and mounted them on a square of Confetti White that was run through the Square Lattice EF.  The words are from PTI’s Autumn Abundance…that set has such nice sentiments!  A little stitching, gathered ribbon, some bling…..I hope it brings a smile to her face!

How about bringing a smile to our faces and playing with the Colour Courtiers this week?  Hop on over to the CQC blog and show us your creative side using these colors! 


  • Stamps:  Autumn Abundance, PTI
  • Paper:  Confetti White, Cherry Cobbler, Poppy Parade, So Saffron, Always Artichoke, So Saffron Patterns DP
  • Ink:  Always Artichoke
  • Acc:  Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Square Lattice EF; Rhinestones, 1 1/4 & 1” Circle Punches, Sewing Machine, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, dimensionals

Haven’t shared my little one lately…..a 5-month-old in motion:

Really? DO ALL your cards have to be perfectly gorgeous? Come on LeAnne, make a stinky card to show us just once so we'll know you're human - lol! I think this card is just the PERFECT example of this week's challenge colors - I love it!
