Anybody else an old Maxwell Smart fan? I loved Get Smart back in the day, but I thought the movie was dumb. Some things shouldn’t be re-done.
Anyway, what does all this have to do with the price of tea in China? (My we ARE digging out the old chestnuts today!) I had the ColourQ 45 Challenge colors listed on my craft table all week and finally finished the card yesterday, only to realize that I’d just missed the posting deadline. Well, I missed being considered for Colour Queen, but of course I can still upload to the site. Would you vote for me?

I couldn’t get into the Tempting Turquoise in the Colour Q scheme, and I thought I would be really sneaky and just put a teeny tiny border in to satisfy the requirements. Who would have guessed that it would work so well?? I was astonished to say the least.
Today’s ribbon treatment does NOT involve sticky, tacky adhesive, thank you very much. There’s a simple running stitch on one side of a 2 inch scrap of ribbon, pulled together and knotted to make a half-rosette. A pair of those are on either side of the sentiment and I am very pleased with they way they turned out. I’m sure someone has done this before but I haven’t seen it done so for now I am claiming this brilliant concept.
You know you’re gonna need this stamp set…
