Whimsy and Stars Studio May Blog Hop!

Hi, everyone! It’s time for a new Design Team season at Whimsy and Stars Studio, and today we’re celebrating Mabelle’s May release with a DT showcase and blog hop! You should have arrived from Melissa‘s blog, and now you’re visiting me (Suzanne)!
This month’s new digi stamp release is “Garden Joy,” and she’s perfect for celebrating springtime and Mother’s Day!
I always think of my Mom when I color images like these…she has always been a whiz when it comes to gardening. Unfortunately, I didn’t inherit her talent, because my thumb is brown instead of green…LOL
Here’s a peek at the digi stamp:
And here’s my card!
Be sure to leave comments for all of the blogs on today’s hop, because Mabelle will be selecting two random comments from all of the ones left on the hop for a prize, which is their choice of one digi stamp from the Whimsy and Stars Studio etsy store! Our hop runs until Wednesday, May 8 at 7PM Eastern Time, so make sure to leave all of your comments for us before then!
Since I’m the last stop on today’s hop, head over to the Whimsy and Stars Studio blog to let Mabelle know how much you enjoyed the hop, and to find out all the details on the Whimsy and Stars Studio DT Call!
And, don’t forget to visit the Whimsy and Stars Studio etsy store for more fabulous digi stamps that you’re sure to fall in love with!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s hop!

colourQ #137

Happy Tuesday! It’s time for a new colourQ! Hope you had a great weekend!

I know Mother’s Day was on Sunday, but I used this week’s colourQ to make the card that I sent to my Mom. She received it on Saturday…so glad it got there in time! (And she LOVED it, by the way!)

Here’s my card:
Supplies: card base, cardstock (Stampin’ Up! – Tempting Turquoise), ink (Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade, – Stampin’ UP; Slate – aMuse Studio), stamps (Nordic Spring – Waltzingmouse Stamps; Nana’s Needlework Sentiments – Gina K Stamps), ribbon (Slate – aMuse Studio), embossing folder (Cuttlebug/Provo Craft)
For your creative inspiration, here’s this week’s colourQ:
To be considered for this week’s colourQueen, make sure to link your creation at the colourQ blog by Sunday, May20 at noon Central Time! (Don’t forget to display the challenge colors and link back to the colourQ blog in your entry post.)
Of course, the rest of the colourQ Royal Court have created some fabulous projects with this week’s colors! You can see them on the colourQ blog or by visiting their personal blogs. (The links are to the right next to the thumbnail of this week’s challenge colors.) 
Thanks so much for stopping by! I can’t wait to see what you’ll create with this week’s colourQ!
Don’t forget, there’s still time to play along with the challenges at Christmas Card Challenges (Use a very old or rarely used stamp) and at Drunken Stampers (use “green” as your inspiration). I’m also the featured DT member at Drunken Stampers this week…stop by when you have time!
