ColourQ Challenge #82

Hi again!  Seriously, I wasn't so sure I was going to get a card out this week.  I had to take care of things this week that don't normally happen (like defrosting my freezer).  Then on Wednesday, I hurt my neck and yesterday was completely out of commission!  Thank heaven for the chiropractor and my amazing Mother in Law who came to help me care for my kiddos!  Today I have more range of motion, but it is still very sore and I have to careful what I do. I can't lift and it is amazing how many things I want to lift in a day!  It is hard to put up with setbacks, but we have to take the good with the bad.

So, today I finally got a chance to sit down and make a card for the ColourQ Challenge #82  Whoa Nellie!  These colors are a challenge!  I wouldn't have put these together on my own, but I was pleasantly surprised how they work together.  Here are the colors:

I took the circle inspiration from the sample to create my card:

I used cardstock from Stampin Up! and other, ribbon by Offray and American Crafts, Stamps by G Studio and Stampin Up!, circle punches by Fiskars and EK Success.  I had to use my Cricut to cut the mat to the "thanks" with the George cartridge.  Ink is Stampin Up!

I call this card Simply Circles.

I always need a good 'male' card and I think this one really fits the bill.  Thanks again for the challenge!  It was fun.  Let me know what you think!!  Have a wonderful day!

Colour Q Challenge #81

Hi again!  It was sad to miss last week's challenge, but we were on vacation and we had an amazing time!  The break was so nice.  So this week I am back in the saddle.  Here are the colors for the
ColourQ Challenge #81:

We have had SO much snow and rain the past few weeks that I am SO looking forward to some sunshine and pretty flowers.  I made a flower card with these pretty soft pastels colors in the challenge:

I used cardstock from DCWV, Stampin Up! and unknown, Inks from Stampin Up!, Cricut machine and these cartridges: Straight From the Nest, Accent Essentials and Sweet Treats, Stamp is by G Studio, Punches from Fiskars and Marcy Uchida, adhesives and pop dots.

I has a circle card with white cardstock on the back of the flower that you can't see from the photo.

I hope you can enjoy this spring flower as much as I do!  Have a wonderful day!  Thanks for looking at my blog.  I SO appreciate it!  I also LOVE your comments so please me leave one. ;)

I was stunned to learn that I was chosen this last week as a Colour Q Courtier with my bird card!

Thanks Colour Q!  I am honored.

Alas, there won't be a card from me this week.  It was Spring Break and we were out of town.  I am still trying to unbury myself from the laundry.  Wish me luck!

What a week.  We have been sick at our house.  NO fun!  So even though I am not 100%, I still tried the Colour Q Challenge this week.  Here are the colors:

I needed to make a birthday card this week, so I went that route with the challenge.  Here's my card:

It says 'Just Flyin' By' on the front.  And as a bonus, I did the inside too:
