ColorQ challenge and Freshly Made Sketch Challenge

Hey everyone!!

So back to work means little time for crafting and posting during the week :( But since it's now the weekend, I've had plenty of time to craft and film some videos for you!!

I went to Walmart today to get some medicine since I wasn't feeling too well this morning (I feel just fine now... weird) and I ended up in the craft aisle... I bought B is for Boy, the Cricut lite cartridge (which I have been waiting to get for months and finally decided to actually get). But I also noticed that they had a whole new line of Studio G products for Valentine's Day!!! Everything from Studio G is only $0.97!!! Granted it's probably not as good of quality as Stampin' Up, but there's some cute things in there that won't break the bank if you don't have a lot of money to spend on crafting items. I'm uploading a video of some of their new products, so I'll post that as soon as it uploads.

So anyway, I finally had a chance to visit my craft room, and I decided to do the colorQ color challenge over at The challenge this week is to use the colors Pretty in Pink, Gray, Pumpkin Pie, and Melon Mambo.

I also decided to try using a sketch for inspiration, so I chose to do the Freshly Made Sketch at 

Here is my finished product.
Cardstock: Basic Gray, Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, and Whisper White by Stampin' Up
Ink: Melon Mambo, Basic Gray, Versamark
Stamp Sets: "You are Loved" - Stampin' Up
Love Blossoms Wheel - Stampin' Up
"Flower and Friendship" by My Pink Stamper
Ribbon: Melon Mambo 1/2" Grograin Polka Dot
Melon Mambo and Silver embossing Powder
Corner Rounder
Papertrey Ink Raspberry Fizz buttons

I have a lot more videos for you! I changed my craft room around, I filmed the Studio G products, I have a short video of another card, and I also have a video for this card. I will post them as soon as I get them uploaded!

Have a wonderful night everyone :)
