Happy Tuesday!


Before I begin today's post I want to thank all of you for your overwhelming comments yesterday regarding being Moxie Fabber of the Week! Here on my blog, at Moxie Fab World and on Facebook! I could barely be on the computer yesterday because I kept getting a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes. You are so fabulous and I love you all! {sniff sniff}

Okay down to business, it's Tuesday and time for this week's new colour palette at the colourQ!




I have been making birthday cards lately that can be either masculine or feminine.  Often the cards I have been making have been perfect for teenagers.  I have 20 nieces and nephews ranging in age between 1 month and 39 years--yes I was an aunt at 7! So there is always a birthday in our house. Here is a card using Papertrey Ink's Sketched Shapes, love that stamp set.
