cQc #294 ~ Happy Summer!

"Schools out for summer, schools out forever."...Have I got you singing yet LOL!! Alas school is out for summer break and that means my little Sweet P is home with mommy. What WILL I do with myself!! We are planning on her being with me one day a week, so I won't be going through complete withdrawal LOL!! 

Speaking of summer, I have a cute summer card for you using our new palette from ColourQ. Take a look...


I LOVE this color combination and had fun with this card. Pool Party is probably my favorite SU paper color. Normally I would have made it the star, but today I used it for accents and let the cozy Soft Suede have it's due. What a fabulous shade of brown. Kind of reminds me of the chocolate almond ice-cream my hubby treated me to after a drive yesterday ~ *wink*!! 

I layered up a few goodies with my PTI Mat Stack 3 that was stamped and die cut. Those itty bitty flip flops are be Endless Creations and the sentiment is Savvy Stamps. I added a few little waves, courtesy of Impression Obsession.


Thanks for visiting today, take care ~Lisa

Such a fun card and pretty color palate this week. Oh no. What will you do with yourself the other 4 days a week? Hopefully, not vacuum! Lock yourself in your craft room and go wild with creativity is my suggestion.

What a fun design this is, Lisa! I'm ready for the beach!! Oh, my, you definitely are going to go through P withdrawals, my friend, and she is going to go through grandma withdrawals! Thank goodness they are understanding and letting you two play one day a week!! Hugs, Darnell
