cQc #312 ~ From Our House to Yours!

Hey there sweet peeps! Has your week gotten off to a good start? Mine has. We had a gorgeous autumn day yesterday. I took Sweet P on a long walk. We were almost home when we stopped to say hi to a neighbor. After a few minutes he pointed out that she had lost one of her little socks!! So we backtracked to find it. Our half hour walk became an hour!! She enjoyed it though and so did I. There is a house with several Halloween inflatables that she was quite smitten with! She liked watching a witch popping up out of a big pumpkin!

I have a card for you today featuring this week's ColourQ colors. We hope you play along with us. The team has some beautiful inspiration for you. Be sure to stop by their blogs and leave them a little love. 



I was inspired by the trees and polka dot button in the inspiration photo. I've used my Memory Box Linden Trees stamp that I colored with Zig Brush Markers. I blended the two oranges for the leaves. The sentiment is an older stamp from Hero Arts. I added a border of gray and white polka dots along with a Tangerine Tango strip that was cut with a PPP Stitched Borders 3 die.




Thanks for spending some time on my little old blog today! ~Lisa

Oh my gosh. I want to come to your house for a month or so and play with all your stamps and goodies! This is so SWEET, it fits the challenge PERFECTLY! So glad you found little Sweet P's sock!! I remember once I had Dana sitting on the kitchen counter, putting on her sneakers....and I couldnt' find one of them. We looked and looked and looked, and finally realized that it had fallen into the bread drawer!!!
