ColourQ Challenge #358

Hello friends.  Playing along with this week's challenge over at ColourQ.  Loved the seaside feel to the inspiration photo, so I went along with that theme and the colors: So Saffron, Night of Navy, Cool Caribbean, Poppy Parade, & white.

Used my PTI Chevron Cover Plate die to make my background (thinking waves) with Night of Navy, So Saffron, and Pool Party (didn't have Cool Caribbean cardstock).  Next I added a die cut circle that I stenciled with PTI's Sun & Surf stencils using Cool Caribbean ink, and then added my die cut sailboat from PTI's What the Doodle: Waves stamp set with Real Red ink (closest to Poppy Parade that I had!).  My sentiment is from PTI's Petite Pots and stamped in Real Red on a banner die cut from PTI's Quilted tag.  I finished with a few enamel dots and some red & white bakers twine.  This card will be going to my good friend Nora who is battling with ALS, and these past couple weeks have not been good for her.  For all of you prayer warrior's out there, if you could please send some extra prayers her way, I know she would be thrilled.  She has always been such a perfect example of what sharing Jesus's light should look like, and now when she needs some extra encouragement, I would love to be able to offer it to her.  If anyone would be interested in sending a card her way also, please email me ( and I will get her address to you...thank you!!

There is still time to play along with this latest challenge, so check out all the inspiration and then play along too.  You can find all the info you need right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!  :0)
