CQC #148 ~ Thinking of You!

Hello my sweet bloggy friends. I seem to be on a card making roll this week so I thought I would have another go at it with an entry for the latest ColourQ challenge. They have a fun summery color collection this week!


Doesn't this little number just pop off the screen. Whew eee it's orange crush in your face baby! But hey with the color name of tangerine tango a girl can have some fun right!!??!! I think I'm learning to embrace the orange, not my usual color but I thought I would mix things up a bit LOL!

This went together in a snap. I stamped the pretty peonies from PTI (courtesy of my sweet friend Ally!) onto the white panel. Next came this cute sentiment by Savvy Stamps. I've had this wooden stamp for years and I love the way I can curve it around an image. My PTI Simple Circles and Love Lives Here butterfly were die cut from pink pirouette card stock and added to the focal panel. I added the poppy colored gems and wrapped my twine around the panel. This was added to my card with foam tape to pop it up. Easy peasy and orange juicey squeezy!

Oh I think I'm having too way much fun here! Must be cuz my hubs is home today! Little Max is hot on his heels with every move. He doesn't want to miss out on anything his daddy is doing. That includes the nap at the moment!
 Have a good one friends ~Lisa

You are having fun! Love your sentiment and how it wraps around your flowers. It's such a nice change from the usual straight greeting. Hmmm, maybe I can bend a clear stamp to be like that!
