ColourQ 136

Oh my, what a busy day.  I thought Mother's Day was supposed to be nice and relaxing.  Oh well, it's been a good day, even if it's been non stop.

I'm really enjoying participating in the Colour Q challenges.  This week's colours are just gorgeous, take a look (I want this scarf)

I had lots of ideas spinning through my head for this week andI had a few shipments of new goodies on their way to me and I wasn't quite sure they would arrive on Friday.  Luckily they ALL did and this what I made using my brand new die. 

I've seen this Memory Box die on Debby's blog and thought it was just gorgeous, so when I had to order something, it just found it's way into my cart.  Funny how that happens. 

I have actually inlaid the die cut into the top panel which I found to be quite a fiddly task with two broken nails - couldn't pick anything up off my desk. A few deep breaths were taken when adding the sentiment, because everything was finished before I added that.  Thank goodness it is straight, with no smudges or inky outlines :)

I really love how it turned out and can't wait to use it again.  In fact, I  made another couple of cards using the cut white cutout from the white panel.

Well, got to go, I'm time converting in my head and that's never a good thing.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you've had a fantastic day
