ColourQ #143


Has summer started for anyone yet? :)
We had it for about a week, then just rain rain rain!!
At least it's warmish out. I suppose I really shouldn't complain!

 I will say that we have had plenty of thunderstorms which I absolutely LOVE.
I remember my mom used to wake me up sometimes as a kid, to go and sit on the porch and watch them!

Anyway, I am here today to share with you the newest ColourQ
colour challenge.

So pretty don't you think?

I had an amazingly hard time with this combo. 
And I believe it's because they are such strong colours. Primary colours!!

Well, here's my take.

I was itching to use my circle border die from PTI.
I used the Background Basics:Retro for the stripes and Boy Basics:Circles for the stars.

This colour combo is quite festive!! I believe a bunch of the girls from the design team agree. You should head over to the ColourQ blog to checkout what they came up with.

You have until Sunday July 1st to play along and link up your own creation.
I can't wait to see what brilliant cards/pages you guys create. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

P.S. I have some pretty AMAZING news to share with you tomorrow. 
I do hope you will stop by to find out what!
Have a fabulous Tuesday!!


  1. Great card! It went from Hot to Rain here. Today looks promising though!!

  2. Can't wait to hear your fabulous news! These are tricky colors, but I love your masculine take on them that is perfectly festive. We've had some thunderstorms here recently, too, and I just love them! They're nothing like the ones I grew up with in Indiana, but they also come without the tornado warnings, which is a good thing!

  3. Summer was here last week (as in nearly 100-degrees) but then it went away :( I hope it will return soon!

    Great way to use these colors. The graphic design of your circles are fantastic with the bright yellow stars and buttons!

  4. We went from winter to summer. We had an unseasonably warm spring--high 80s most days. We have had a lot of heat--need rain badly. Yesterday and today crazy cold wind, but the heat wave is rolling in again tomorrow. I love the circles on your card and you did an amazing job with the primaries. Will be back for your news tomorrow!

  5. Hmmm, amazing news... guess I'll have to wait till tomorrow! :P
    I really like the bold, graphic look of this card.

  6. What a cool card, and love the use of the die too!


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