Pale and Interesting? Colour Q #270

Evening all!

So, are you all ready for Christmas?  For the first time in about 7 years I've actually bought some Christmas cards which I'm really not happy about at all.  For some reason,  I'm really struggling with making Christmas cards this year. I think it's the heat... we've had a particularly hot start to the Summer and, since I've associated Christmas with snow and cold for the first 30 years of my life, I'm really struggling to get into a Christmassy frame of mind.

This week's Colour Q palette might get you in a Christmassy mood - or it might remind you of Spring.  It really could go either way:

I kept it very CAS again, die cutting and embossing a circle of card stock and adding a WMS bloom and MFT die cut 'hello.' I also used the sketch at Fusion to give my mojo a push in the right direction.

Hope you manage to get some crafty time to keep you sane in all the Christmas madness this week!

Thanks for popping over,

Claire x


  1. So soft and feminine, Claire ... love how there's a petal meandering through the loop of the h in the hello ... such a great touch! Anita :)

  2. I'll trade your hot Christmas for the cold one I'm sure to have! And I love how you interpreted this sketch. The embossed circle is genius with the little floral accent!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment - they really make my day!
