Colour Q #283

Hello folks!

Not much playing with ink for me this week - it's been a big birthday week with my oldest son celebrating his 9th birthday and me celebrating my 40th (for the third year in a row...). So, how did I spend my birthday weekend? Lounging around in a luxury spa perhaps? Being waited on hand and foot? No. Making 40 cupcakes for my son's class mates, hosting a sleepover for 4 very noisy little boys and making a giant cheesecake at the birthday boy's request!

But I did have time to fit in my card for the new Colour Q challenge at least:

I knew I had the perfect MME papers for these colours. I used the pretty sketch from CAS(e) This Sketch, stamped and embossed Waltzingmouse's Simple Sprig onto some kraft and fussy cut it.

Hope you have time to get inky this week - you've got until midnight next Monday to link up your creations!

Thanks for stopping,

Claire x
