Colour Q #251 - sorry it's late

So I'm not so organized this week - sorry.  Here's my sample for this week's Colour Q.

So I just LOVE this colour combo this week.  Purple is my favourite colour.  And Concord Crush is my favourite Stampin' Up color EVER!!!!!

Below you will find the kits and template that I used for this page.  The template is from Southern Serenity Designs.

Forever and Always

 Here's a cute card I made for an upcoming wedding we are attending.  I know that the bride loves purple.
I cut out the ampersand with my Silhouette Cameo, and I cut out the window using a die from Stampin' Up!
To make those little rows of sequins, I put down strips of double sided tape and then used tweezers to carefully lie down each sequin one by one - it took a bit of time.
I then used a paper piercer to pop the holes around the border and hand stitched the edges
The sentiment is a stamp from Stamping up.  I cut it out using a paper cutter first, and then craft scissors to make the flag ends.  Then I cut it in half to take out the & on the stamp.

Colour Q Challenge #250

Can you believe that Colour Q is having their 250th challenge???  Crazy I know.

I absolutely LOVE this colour combo.  You have a choice of using black and white and one of the colours from the dress, OR all of the colours from the dress - I chose the latter.  Hop on over to the Colour Q to see what the DT have come up with.

I had this adorable photo of my daughter and I taken last week.  We did a tour of one of the local mines.  It was a copper mine but they closed down in the 1970's and then reopened as a museum about 10 years later.  I have driven by this mine a million times as it's on the way to Whistler, our local ski destination, but I had never been there before.   It was fun!

I also happened to have just bought this great kit "Girls Time Out from" Pixels and Co.  Talk about perfect timing.

 I also used this template from Fiddle Dee Dee Designs to put it all together.

Thanks again for stopping by today!

Soccer Flame

Here's a little Thank You card I whipped up a few months back for Teagan's soccer coach.  I found the image through MS word and I coloured it with markers.

Birthday Bow

Here's a cute card I made to add to my birthday stash.I decided to try out some cool paper I picked up while in California and made a few birthday cards.  
The stamps are from a Hampton Art/ Echo Park die cut set from Sizzix.  
I pulled together some ribbon and buttons from my stash, and some small acccessories from the dollar bin at Michael's.

As with all birthday cards - I'm linking up with the challenge this week over at Seize the Birthday.
