its your day to....

hello friends!  wow... where has the week gone?  can't believe it is thursday already.  tomorrow i'm going to be volunteering in my little one's class for the first time this school year.  should be interesting to see how he acts while mommy is in the room!!  anywhoo...



here is a little card i made for the current colourQ challenge.  it was a nice surprise to check the colourQ blog on tuesday to see what the new combo was and to find that i had been crowned colourQueen for challenge #156.  i was so pleased with how that card turned out and hopefully it will make whoever receives it smile as i sent it off last week to operation write home.  this is kinda funny, but i had nearly completed work on my card for this week's combo when i realized that i was using the same exact stamp set that i used for challenge #156.... wplus9 design's woodgrain silhouettes.  i love that set and must admit that i was influenced to use it again by the super talented chupa.  i had been on her blog checking out the current sketchbook saturday sketch (i used it for the layout) and saw the lovely card she had made using the same set.   i must also admit that i was a bit perplexed as to how i would make these colors work and originally thought i would make a halloween card, but so glad i decided not to go that route.  the sentiment is from a hero arts set called many birthday messages.

thanks for stopping by....

supplies:  cardstock:  pti white; bazzill black; stamps: wplus9 designs & hero arts; ink:  stampin up and memento; ribbon:  pti; punch:  stampin up; rhinestones:  hero arts

A beautiful card Rosemary! I love how you placed that bow! And those colours work so well with the images you chose! Have fun volunteering tomorrow - I did a few sessions at Natasha's school whilst we were in the US, it was a really nice experience!
