cqc #205 ~ Hello There!

Well hello there! Did you think I had skipped town LOL! I know things have been quite around here, just working on DT projects and taking a wee break. Speaking of DT projects, I have a new one to share today. Along with this project is some pretty nifty news. I'm the newest member of the ColourQ Royal Court Design Team!!! Eeeek...I know right!!! I got one of those sweet emails that make you feel humbly warm and fuzzy all over. Thanks Arielle! 



I have discovered that for some odd reason this cute little fox gives me fits! On top of that, my new London Fog ink pad is super juicy and was puddling on the stamp ~ grrrr. So let's just say this card took some work. Aren't the tiny flower buttons sweet though. They're from my DeNami stash and just so happen to match the Raspberry Ripple paper quite well. I snuck in a wee bit of Island Indigo with a little gem for the nose, cute huh!



This is your pretty color palette for the week inspired by these snazzy boots! Can't wait to see your cards in the gallery. Have a beautiful day and thanks so much for stopping by ~Lisa

Oh Lisa, I have been having some serious issues with inks puddling on stamps for some time now. I've been searching for the perfect ink and I'm convinced it doesn't exist! In any event, whatever you did totally works because this card is fabbo! That sly fox looks pretty fantastic!

And a big, hearty welcome to the colourQ team!!

Thanks for being such a faithful visitor to my blog over the summer--it was always such a joy to see your smiling face in the comments section!! It was such a crazy busy summer--I never had the time I wanted to for getting out to visit folks in blog land. But with the kids back in school now, I'm hoping I'll have a little more time to myself these days!!!

Have a great day!!

Well Lisa first off congrats on becoming a team member. I love that little fox. Darling card. I can't wait to see you every week now on the Colourq team. How sweet. Thanks for the comment on my card. I just gave it to my niece tonight. My mojo is still gone as I sat down at my stamp table today and nothing would come as far as designing anything. Maybe tomorrow. LOL! Happy stamping, Bev
