CQC #184 & RS #59 ~ Hello There!

Happy Saturday! I hope you're enjoying nice spring weather where you are. We, unfortunately, have cooler temps and drizzle once again. Max and I managed to get a nice long walk in this morning before the raindrops began to fall. Days like this are good crafting days. So I put my mind to work on the ColourQ colors of the week. They were a bit tricky at first, especially the caramel, but after a little experimenting I think I managed to work them into something pleasing. This is also loosely based on the new sketch by Laurie at Retrosketches...it works in my mind anyway! You'll have to let me know if I succeeded!!

I've covered my gray card base with a fun polka dot blush panel. Next I stamped and paper pieced this sweet little fox by PTI. I've nestled her among caramel buttons, pearls and MFT royal roses. Now here's my explanation of the sketch! I flipped it and have used the butterflies (from the same PTI hello foxy set) to represent the larger banner and the little fox ears as the smaller banner inside of it. After I finished I realized that my sentiment was probably in the wrong place for the sketch, but that's just the way it worked out!


That's it for me today friends. I hope you'll stop back by tomorrow for a fun DeNami fancy favors blog hop. You have a chance at one of two DeNami gift certificates just by commenting on all of the participants ~ how easy is that! Have a splendid day ~Lisa
