ColourQ #192 and CASE this Sketch #31


Happy Friday and happy last day of school....lots of free time is in store and I am so excited!  I came home and decided to play along on a couple of challenges.  I had to make a second card for this week's ColourQ #192, the colors this week are amazing!  My card design was inspired by the wonderful guest designer for this week's CAS(e) this Sketch #31 challenge, Tracey McNeely! Not only is she an amazing paper crafter, she is very funny (don't ask her about the rooster) and so sweet.  Thank you so much for taking time to stop by to peek at my card....have a wonderful weekend!

  7. Your polka dot balloons look fabulous with the black strings. Your "pinked" edging adds the perfect finishing touch between your sentiment and border. Great job, Kim!

  8. Here is another card that I love so much I want to marry it. I may have to divorce the card I fell in love with last month in order to marry this one. Everything is just perfect. I love those balloons in those colors and those dots. And, I completely forgot about that awesome text border. Yikes--how could I have done that?
