Happy Tuesday!

It's time for a new palette at the colourQ!
I am two steps forward and four steps back this week--lol




Couldn't resist a little gold dipping!

I hope all of you who are mothers, children or fur babies, had a wonderful Mother's Day.
With my hubby and son out of town, my beautiful daughter took control.  We got up early and drove west to pick up my Mom and then we drove back and then east to go and have tea with my mother-in-law.  Too very happy ladies and so glad that they get along so well.  Brooklyn worked in the afternoon but came out after with purple tulips and this gorgeous card that was in the husband's kit from Kim Heggins. Then she took me to Caffe Demetris dessert restaurant and treated her mama to this, underneath that big hump in the middle was white chocolate ice cream. Yes I did eat it all.  Love that girl to pieces, she knows me too well!

 

Card from the husband's kit, thanks Kim:

I love your gold tipped feathers. The feather die I want has been out of stock so long I figured the trend would be gone. I guess not. lol
