Colorthrow Down #250 and ColourQ #197

Happy Sunday! I spent some of the day crafting and more time getting my dolly domestic chores done so I will have lots of play time this week.  I have two cards to share first card is for this weeks Colorthrow Down #250 and they are having a big party over there and you still have time to play if you hurry! They are celebrating 5 years of fabulous challenges! I had no clue they were at the beginning of all this fun of cards challenges but I am happy that they are.  They have some amazing prizes too so pull out your card stock and make a card!

My second card is for ColourQ #197, the colors this week are just so cute! Not sure what it is about that color combination but I just love and so happy I still had time to play along this week.  I pulled out a few NBUS for this card too, thanks Darnell!  I pulled out stamps from both Clearly Besotted - Build a Bug and The Alley Ways Stamps - Gotta Bug? and a new die from My Favorite Things - Grassy Edges.  It is always fun to play with new toys! Thank you so much for taking time to stop by to peek at my cards....have a wonderful week!

  1. Kim, these are fantastic! Two great get well cards that are totally different. Love both! Love the details and how you incorporated the colors on both.

  2. These are both so wonderful. I almost think I want to get sick so you will send one to me. I love how you did your background stamping on the first card. You know I am a total sucker for background stamping. And, those bugs are just too cute in your second card.

  3. I like both your cards, Kim, but the second one gave me a chuckle--so cute!

  4. I'm glad you had time to do these delightful cards, Kim! Your homey comfort card would make anyone feel better and your snail card would make anyone giggle! It is the CUTEST!! Way to go getting new schtuff in the first place and then crossing it off that NBUS list!! Doesn't that feel great?! See you soon!

  5. Two fabulous creations Kim! I'm back from my wee hiatus and so anxious to catch up on what I missed!

    Your little bug card is sure to cheer up anyone's day with the sweet image and the fun, happy colors! Love the button & twine and the little parade of critters!

    The beautiful, soothing colors and the images totally conjure up a pot of home made chicken noodle soup - so good for the soul. Instant good health to the recipient!

  6. These are both perfect get well cards, Kim ... the first warm and comforting, the second such a fun, chuckley card ... both guaranteed to make anyone feel good, even if they're not sick! Anita :)

  7. Well aren't these both the cutest! Thanks for joining the fun at ColourQ and the Color Throwdown!

  8. Wonderful get well cards Kim! They are both lovely and so cheerful! I love your designs so much! So fun to come and see what you are up to! :)

  9. Such a cute card, Kim, love all the bugs, but of course not in real life! LOL! Thanks for sharing your card with us at the colourQ this week.

  10. These would cheer up anyone they are adorable and fun to look at! Love the grass and little bugs!

  11. What a fun card using the throwdown colors! Love it! Thanks for playing along and helping us celebrate!
