CQC #122 - with love.....

First of all, I need to thank you for all of the heartfelt and kind words.
I am so grateful for all of my blogging friends.
And to those of you that shared your own stories with me, again, thank you. It was certainly helpful to know that I/we are not alone.

I am so happy to be back creating, although very, very, slow to start off!
I was able to scrape up enough mojo after seeing Arielle's colour scheme for this week to create a card for ColourQ.

Yummy, Yummy, Yummy!!

While I was recently perusing Pinterest, (time suck galore!) I came across this technique that inspired me.

Now I'm sure you guys have seen it before, but saw it and really wanted to try it out.
(Click on the picture to head to Lori's blog)

She used a dye ink marker to colour onto one of her clear blocks, then sprayed it with a mister, then smooshed it onto her paper.
I used Distress inks and watercolour paper intead, following the same technique to create my card for this week.

As always, Arielle and the rest of the design team have some utterly amazing samples for you. So head on over to the ColourQ blog and have a look!

Plus there is a new addition to our ColourQ family, Jen Mitchell. We are so very happy to have her, and her beautiful creations.
When you have some time, check out Jen's fabulous blog.

Now it took me some time to create this little card, but once I did the ideas kept rolling in!

I have another card to share........with my leftovers!

And another, yet using different colours.

Thank you all again for being so sweet and for sticking by me in my absence!
Have a wonderful week. :)
