Colour Q #115

I just have to open by saying that I absolutely LOVE this week's colour combo!!
I know I say that a lot (Arielle picks such great combos!) but they are seriously yummy this week.
See what I mean?

Right? :)
So bright and fabulous. They kinda remind me of that cool ribbon candy that comes out at Christmas.
I was inspired by both the ribbon and the colours this week.

You must head over to the ColourQ blog because the design team has totally outdone itself with samples for this week. Seriously amazing!!

I can't wait to see what you guys come up with using this super fun colour scheme. Have a fabulous week! Only 12 days til the big day!! WooHoo!!

Playing in Paradise #45 - all about trees

Happy Friday everyone!
I hope that you are enjoying the festive holiday season so far!
I have been such a procrastinator this year,
I still have tons of shopping to do. Yikes!

I have a fun and appropriate challenge to share with you today, courtesy of Scrapbooker's Paradise!

Now of course it doesn't need to be an evergreen or Christmas tree! Let your imagination run wild. :)
I went with the obvious of course, mostly because I still have a few Christmas cards left to make.

You have until Thursday Dec 15th at noon to play along. Just remember there is a fun prize pack of goodies for the selected winner from Scrapbooker's Paradise up for grabs!!
Stop by the Scrapbooker's blog to check out all of the fun Design Team inspiration.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a fabulous weekend.

ColourQ #114 with a twist!!

Good Morning!

First of all, I just have to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who is still following my blog. I really appreciate it, and all of your wonderful comments. :)
I hope I can soon have some free time to come back and enjoy all the fabulousness that is awaiting me on your blogs.

Ok, back to business!!
I have a seriously awesome colour combo to share with you today, but Arielle has also added a little twist, make anything BUT a card. Well how fun is that?

Isn't this combo scrumptious! It's so bright and happy. Plus I think that little snowman makes me happy too! :)

I decided to make a sort of gift wrap. I vaguely remembered seeing somewhere that someone had put a cookie inside a CD sleeve and thought, what a great idea.

Super, super simple but so much fun to make.
Although if I was making quite a few, I may get sick of the die cut word!!
I cut the merry out of felt then cut it out of cardstock to back the felt & make it a little bit more firm.
The snowflake is a Cuttlebug die I have had FOREVER. I just love the shape of it.

There you have it, a fun little twist on the weekly ColourQ challenge. I do hope you will play along with us, we love to see what you all create.

Head on over to the ColourQ blog to see all of the wonderful inspiration there is to be had by Arielle and the Royal Court. Then link up your superb creation!!

Have a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by. :)

Playing in Paradise #44 - Monochromatic

Happy Friday!!
It's time for another Playing in Paradise challenge, and this week it's all about colour, well monochromatic colour!!
I found this super fun technique on Kristina Werner's blog using Distress inks and water colour paper. I used it to create the yellow panel on my card.
After making this card, I realized maybe I should have used a more Chrostmasy colour scheme, but oh well!! There it is. :)

Head on over to the Scrapbooker's Paradise blog to check out all of the fabulous inspiration the design team has to share, then ink up those stamps and play along.
You have until noon on Dec 7th to play, you could win a wonderful proze courtesy of Scrapbooker's Paradise.
Thanks for stopping by!
