colourQ #205 and Simon Says Wednesday Challenge

IMG_2298

Happy Tuesday!
It is time for another palette at the colourQ!

Hoping to get back in the saddle again after what has been a really short, long summer.  I have been a bad blogger the past couple weeks just too much going on. Now I have pretty much missed this past weekend for commenting and I just have to face the fact that I am not catching up, so let's start again.


Lovely rich tones again this week and a pair of boots that I have got to have!




A die cut card this week using that fantastic Fanfare die from Lil' Inkers and this week's colours. I am also submitting this card to the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes.
