The is one of three posts today, so if you are looking for my Fresh Squeezed Stamps Day 1 Release post or my CASology post just click on home to start from the beginning.

Happy Tuesday and time for this week's new colourQ!
We think you will have fun with this one as you have a say in the colours.




So what is your palette going to look like?

In the past I shied away for graphic cards and tended to only make cards that were cute or flowery.  I think the reason I didn't do graphic is because I didn't know how to get started.  With so many amazing crafters out there who do graphic so well, I sat up and paid attention.  Crafters like Cristina Kowalczyk and Laura Bassen inspire me to try over and over again.  I chose green as my 'one spot of colour' and used my new Papertery Ink set Autumn Pattern Pieces to create a graphic birthday card.
