Two challenges, one card

At the start of the year, I was having lots of fun playing with the ColourQ girls, with their fabulous colour challenges each week.  I haven't done one for ages, not because I don't love it there, but  . . . (sigh, I knew this confession would have to come out sooner or later) I'm not actually very good at getting around to giving people cards.  Pretty pathetic, I know, for someone who lists card making as one of her hobbies!
But this week, I thought, wouldn't it be cool to combine the current colour combo challenge #93 with a card sketch!  I chose sketch 103 from Got Sketch? and here is the result:
Hey! I just a cool idea for a card-making party.  Print out a bunch of  colour combinations from ColourQ and some card sketches (at least one of each per guest and maybe some spares), shuffle and hand them out.  What a fun way to get together and use up your scraps!
Note to self: put plan into action once soccer season finishes!


  1. Julie, you are so funny! Love your party idea. As for giving your cards, there are lots of places to donate cards. Nursing homes in the area, old people don't always get lots of attention, then there is Operation Write Home which supports our military overseas, and there are always giveaways. Your card is lovely. Thanks for sharing it with us at the ColourQ!

  2. Very fun card - And Bazzill is sponsoring a project right now for a young man - it is called "Help Stephen Say Thank You" - a little boy is sending hand made cards tp EVERY SINGLE deployed member of our armed forces over seas. Cool huh? You can send extra cards there too! Thanks for playing along at the colourQ this week!
