colourQ challenge #260

What a glorious day is it here in East Tennessee! Still a little warm for my liking, but the sun and the sky are gorgeous and the mornings tend to be a little cooler, so if I drink my pumpkin spice latte first thing, it almost feels appropriately seasonal! This week's colors hint at fall while not leaving summer completely behind and I had them all, which has to be some kind of miracle!! A friend of mine is having a birthday next week, so I used this palette as my springboard for her card and I LOVE the way it turned out!! Usually, when I do a collage of flowers, I end up with weird white spaces or flowers that are grouped too tightly. NOT THIS TIME!! So, enjoy the weekend and go craft a little!!

colourQ challenge #257

I have discovered a new crafting hobby (or two!), which is why I have been neglecting this blog. I may have mentioned before that I am obsessed with all things fall, all things pumpkin, and all things cooler weather, and while we're not having any cooler weather here in E. TN, I can have a little taste of fall in my decorating and in my coffee! And our new house needed a beautiful new burlap wreath on the front door, so I learned to make one! More on that later! For now, let's talk about the great colors in this week's colourQ challenge! What a great combination! I had Bermuda Bay (of course!! it's turquoise!!) and Night of Navy, but had to punt with Kiwi Kiss and Tim Holtz Picked Raspberry. Since this Sunday is Grandparents' Day, I used this week's palette to make a card for my husband's grandmother. She hasn't been well lately so I made a fun, happy card that is sure to life her spirits. Thanks for stopping by - have a great weekend!!
