CQC148 – Lazy Stamping

DSCF5742
Hello peeps!  It’s Tuesday---the last day of July, oh my!  And that means ColourQArielle has a fun palette today…check out this cutie:

Sweet!  What a fun little bag this is! Even though my cold is getting much better (thank you, everyone, for the get-well wishes!), I decided to go really, really CAS with some cardstock and my Postage Stamp punch for a bold graphic look:

I added sentiments from Petite Pairs and popped them up.  Even though it is ultra-CAS, I still love this look!  So much so, that I made another, same layout, but I used polka dotted DP and a different set of sentiments.  I need several thank you cards, so I thought I might as well begin with these:

I hope you’ll check out the ColourQ blog to see what the other girls have come up with….it’s AMAZING what they have done with these colors---just gorgeous creations!  I hope to see YOUR creation there too!  Be sure to come and play along!
I have been making my own tomato sauce with bounty from our garden, which is just wonderful because Cassidy loves spaghetti! She has a little trouble getting those slippery strands to her mouth, however:

super sweet card LeAnne ~ love how you played with your DP and punches to create a sweet 'quilt like' card. I used to quilt a bit and so this totally reminds me of that! Enjoy your tomatoes, I'm over run with yummy yellow beans right now, so need to get those taken care of ~ Enjoy your day!

Stunning, LeAnne! I love your interpretation of the card with the colors and the inspiration photo! We're slowly starting to get our tomatoes in - we have lots of green ones right now. I have a feeling they will all ripen at the same time and we'll be trying to figure out what to do with all the tomatoes! Tomato sauce will be one thing for sure! :0)
