CQC #66 late again!

Happy New Year everyone!
I hope that everyone had a wonderful holidays!

I am just back from Ontario, visiting family, as it was my Grandpa's 90th birthday on Monday. We had a buffet dinner on the saturday, & an open house tea party on the Sunday. With a fantastic turnout I might add! He still lives on his own, still carves (wood animals) and has very few health problems, we are all so grateful for this. He is such a wonderful man, who has been through a lot, including outliving his wife and one of his daughters.

Between working, Christmas, working and packing I completely lost track of time. (I was packing up until we left for the airport.) And didn't get to make a card for this week's ColourQ challenge. Well I absolutely LOVE this weeks colours and just had to find the time now that we are back to make something. While catching up on challenge blogs I came across this week's Clean & Simple fall to layout and really wanted to use it. (apparently so did a lot of other ColourQ-ers)

All supplies are Papertrey Ink, but the ink! It's really hard to tell but the yellow pieces have been stamped with different text styles from PTI's "text style" sets. The colours I used are lemon tart, harvest gold, and blueberry sky.

Thanks so much for stopping by! :)


  1. Great job on combining the two challenges. I like how you arranged the colors.

  2. Great card! Simply but lovely!

  3. Super beautiful! Love the blocks of color.

  4. Kasia,
    Glad to see you are back and had a wonderful time visiting with your Grandpa. I hope you cherish all the time you have with him. I recently (4 days before Christmas) lost my last grandparent, due to natural causes, she was 92. It is amazing that our grandparents are in their 90's. I hope that I get to spend that much time here. Can you imagine all of the things they have seen throughout the years. Wow! Don't mean to sound like a debbie downer by bringing up my grandma but it is still fresh on my mind. She was a strong woman.

  5. So pretty! We had the same thing in mind! Using the same sketch, colors... and butterflies. :o) Love the border punch you used and that pretty butterlfy.

  6. Beautiful card, Kasia! Did not expect to find you here!

  7. Lovely card - very pretty! Love how you've combined the challenges.

  8. Beautiful card, Kasia, wasn't this sketch fun, too?!? So glad you're back!

  9. I enlarged the picture and the stamping on the yellow papers is gorgeous; just like all the other pieces of this card. Beautiful!!!
    Good to hear you had a wonderful time :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! It really makes my day. :)
