ColourQ #257 and Serenditpy #34

Hello and happy Tuesday...hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend. I was able to squeeze in some crafty time and have 2 cards to share today. My first one is for the new challenge at ColourQ #257 and this week's colors are so bright and cheerful and were fun to play with. It did take me several attempts to get them right but I was very happy with the way it looks. I decided to layer my sentiment is 3 of the colors for this week. I think I saw Anita from France do this on one of her cards and love the way it looks. I hope you will find the time to play along this week.

My second is for the last challenge from Serendipity #34, I know it ended yesterday and still wanted to share my card. It was a very quick Miss You card using an image from a Summertime Image and Journal Notes pad, so very quick and easy and I also added some of those wonderful Rainstones from PTI, I love those little things. Thank you so much for stopping by...enjoy your week and see you soon!

  11. Fabulous!! Love the stamps you used for the first card, they look like fireworks and work perfectly with those colours.

  13. The flowers on the first look amazing - I have that set and I never would have tried this. The overstamping looks great - what beautiful stamping. I have to be more daring. I also like the second with the pretty rose and the dew drops. You matched the cardstock perfectly to the image.
