CQC #192 & RS #66 ~Hello!

Hey there bloggy blog friends!  Max and I are back from a long misty walk. Little furry cold wet paws have been dried and warmed up, a power pup nap is being taken, a load of laundry is swishing away and a card has been finished. Sounds like there's a lot going on here huh! Not really, it just looks like a lot when you write it down *wink*!! That card I spoke of is for the ColourQ and Retro Sketches challenges and here it is.


It took a bit of time to decide what to do for the arrow portion of the sketch. I thought actual arrows looked too modern for the American Art Stamp teapot. But this sweet trim from Hobby Lobby seemed to fit the bill perfectly. I backed some Webster Pages paper with an Island Indigo panel then layered my die cut (MFT) and trim over that. The pretty DP has the perfect combination of light blue and green for the ColourQ colors! My simple script sentiment is by Precious Remembrance. 

I think that covers it. I hope you're having a good day!!~Lisa
