colourQ #173



Time for this week's new colourQ challenge.
It was kind of fun to make a card that isn't for an occassion.  In fact I didn't even put a sentiment on the front.  I like to have some cards on hand that don't have a sentiment on the front and you can either put a handwritten note inside, or stamp a sentiment on the inside when you need a card.  This could be for a thank you, a birthday, friendship, Easter, congratulations or just because.

Here is this week's colour palette.





We hope that you come a play with us this week at the colourQ and while you are there make sure to visit the blogs of the rest of the Design Team to see their fabulous creations.

Love how you made the little "spool" of thread.

Oh, this is just perfect. I was not sure of those colors, but you did the perfect things with them. I completely forgot I bought this set. How terrible is that? I love how you have the stick pins in the spool of thread.
