ColourQ 109


Happy Tuesday!  It’s ColourQ time, and here is a trendy palette for you from Arielle:


I needed another sympathy card for a young woman in our church who lost her dad.  I went very clean and simple with this card:


I made use of some of my Basic Grey Wander papers; they were all the right hues, so all I had to do was to mount them on my Soft Suede panel. A simple sentiment and little beehive heart, which mimicked the pattern in the blue paper, was all I added:



I repeated the Mondrian theme on the inside:


Hope this inspires you to make something special with these colors!  You’ll find more inspiration over at the ColourQ blog, where you’ll be able to view all the designers’ creations.  I hope you share yours with us too!  If you have any questions about my card, just shoot me an email!

We went to a Halloween party last night at a friend’s house; Cassidy went too!  She was really good at keeping her costume on!


She was enthralled at the kids in their Halloween getups at the front door:


but was even more taken with a little fellow her own size; he was not too sure about her, though:


It was a fun time with lots of kids of all ages and wonderful food!  Hope yours was fun too!

ENTHRALLED is the word for that expression and what a doll baby all dressed up like a lady that your husband? Handsome man for a lovely lady.

Oh....the photo of your card....what card? I was too busy looking at your darlings.

Great color blocking! Love the ladybug outfit too :) She looks adorable. My son was a bumble bee once and it is still one of my favorite pictures of him :)

Gisela said...

Simple but beautiful card one I will definitively re-produce, thanks for the inspiration.

Beautiful card, LeAnne! this is one of the best I have seen using those colors! But of course it takes back seat to your Lady Bug, although she is a card of different stuff! Love Cassidy's pictures! Happy November.

I can just see her saying "WHOA, what the..." lol

Oh, and cute card too. :o)

Linda said...

Oh what a cute little ladybug. So sweet!
I LOVE this card! Very sophisticated.

OK that baby girl is amazingly adorable! She is a very cute ladybug! But the last picture of her with the little guy might just be my all time favorite (do I say that every week?) Love that look on her face! You are one snappy photographer!

Anne Marie said...

Love how bold and graphic your design is, LeAnne! Those colors are gorgeous together! Look at that sweet little ladybug! Eeek, those big smile are sooo cute. She looks like she's having fun, for sure. :)

Kathy Mc said...

Isn't she sweet? Also love your card!

What a sweetheart - wish all ladybugs were that adorable;)
I love your card - the colours and the stained glass look are perfect.
