Quint-Essential Birthday

Hope you are enjoying your weekend.  We were supposed to go and visit my parents this weekend but with my youngest babe being sick yesterday we decided to stay close to the walk in clinic in case his fever returned this morning - which thankfully it didn't!

We had a good day - quieter than usual but still fun.  I managed to get a couple of cards done which I was happy about!  I still have Kindergarten scrapbooks to finish up.  Caleb's teacher handed me an armful of artwork on Thursday so I have a good evening's worth of work to do!

I really wanted to tackle the Colour Q challenge this week.  The colours looked so fun and definitely were not colours I would put together!  I also learned of a "new" challenge - or at least new to me via the lovely Lesley Croghan.  Her friend has a Sunday Stamps challenge that had a fun sketch that worked perfectly for the my 5 colours!  Unfortunately I realized after I had stamped the flower that I was supposed to use Vanilla instead of White...oops!  I also didn't have any "Soft Sky" so I substituted Pool Party instead!

If you haven't checked out Sunday Stamps - head on over to the blog (linked above) and give it a whirl!

Oh and yes, I used that argyle embossing folder again!  I love it - and am totally regretting not ordering the Fancy Fan embossing will be in my next order...

Cardstock: Whisper White, Island Indigo, Pool Party, Cameo Coral
Stamps: Quint-Essential Flower, Itty Bitty Banners
