Colour Q and Friday Sketchers

Good evening my fellow crafting PEEPS! Man, it *seriously* feels like FOREVER since I've blogged! So sorry for the lull, but life has been fairly busy around here lately. Between boot camps, kids school, gardening, yard work, stamping classes, 4-H and normal everyday LIFE stuff, it's been a bit hectic to say the least! I took full advantage of sitting down tonight after boot camp and making a card. Actually, I put a challenge out to Tamie this afternoon as she was in a bit of a crafting FUNK, so be sure to hop on over to her blog HERE and check out her amazing contribution to the challenge! I used the Colour Q color challenge and Friday Sketchers sketch for my card. It took a bit of "muckin" tonight to get the sketch to work with my image...but I think I got it!

....here's my card incorporating both challenges:

Stamps: Elements of Style, Medallion; Paper: Summer Sun, Soft Suede, Kiwi Kiss DP, Bermuda Bay DP, Whisper White; Ink: Bermuda Bay, Kiwi Kiss, Black Staz On; Accessories:paper piercer, markers, dimensionals, circle punch, oval punch, label punch, square lattice embossing folder
I had a lot of fun making this card. The coloring was awesome and even though it took a lot of time to get the colors "just so," it was a lot of fun to sit and create again. Thanks, Tamie, for the fun today...sorry it is so late getting blogged! Boot camp called again tonight....thanks for stopping in tonight and please don't forget to go and check out the PPC "Follow Me" Challenge over at Picture Perfect Creations...CLICK HERE for details! Hope to be back tomorrow!
