cQc #227 ~ With Love!

Hi there! Another Tuesday is upon us, in fact the first Tuesday of February! Valentine's day is fast approaching and our new bright colors at the ColourQ are perfect for your cards.

Now I will admit I struggled with them a bit and scrapped my first card. I'm not a fan of bright pink and it always throws me for a loop when it comes to putting it on a card. So I went all out simple simple with this one!



I used my set of circles, or as I like to refer to them polka dots, from Hero Arts. I stamped them in a random pattern on a white card base. Next I added a cute DeNami sentiment and sprinkled on some Red Heart Confetti from the Pretty Pink Posh Store. Like I said simple simple!!


Can't wait to see what you do with the colors this week. You always knock my socks off with you cards in the cQc gallery! Thanks for taking a peek today ~Lisa
