A song..

Hey there! Thanks for stopping in. It's been a busy week around here! I've gotten a whopping 4 hours of sleep since Saturday...ugh. I'm running on steam, people! I have GOT to get some sleep soon or it's going to start affecting my attitude! :)


Today, I have a card for this week's Colour Q challenge. Can I say that as soon as I saw these new SU colors when the catalog came out, I KNEW I had to have them. I decided to just buy the "sample" pack with the inks and card stock and after using them tonight I simply must buy packs and packs more of it. All of the colors are just gorgeous and they work really well together. When I saw this challenge, I was very excited! Ok, so here is the color swatch:



I decided to break out my Papertrey set, Happy Trails. I really like the sentiments included. I'm such a sentiment freak!

Here is my card:



I don't know about you guys, but I love using flourishes on things..lol. I think they work so well with birds and butterflies! This was a fun card to make. It feels like it needs something else, but I'm not sure what. Ah well...hope you like it!!

Okay, so last night I had to use my Chevron stripes, and now tonight I'm going to have to bring out Happy Trails... This is wonderful, I love how you used the flourish with your birds! Now...get some sleep!

Love the way you used the flourishes, Keva, especially with the added pearls! Such a great use of the Mat stack, too. Thanks for joining us at the ColourQ again this week!

Eeek, I love this! I've been trying to keep Happy Trails off my radar screen, but this does NOT help the cause! lol :)

So pretty, Keva. I like the flourishes also, and you've inspired me as to how to use them. Great card!
