What a LONG absence! Colour Q #99

Over six months!  That's how long it's been since I've posted or even taken a peek at my Google Reader.  It wasn't my intention, but the spring and summer were so busy the last thing I felt like doing was being on the computer.  I didn't stamp either.  Thankfully I have a big stash of cards to make it through!  I do wonder if I'm ready to be back in full force, but in the last two weeks I've had the desire to stamp.  So, why not post 'em!

The first challenge that caught my eye was Arielle's at the Colour Q.  I love this color combination.  Only the card started when I was playing around with a new flower die.  I decided to cut out a bunch with plain tissue paper, just to see how it looked.  Mmmm....nice!  Reminds me of the white clematis on the south side of my garage (sorry no picture.)

So, it feels pretty good to be creative again!  I hope it "takes."
