Service Project with ColourQ #205

Hello scrappy friends!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
I have been absent a bit lately as you may have noticed.
I have been having some issues with my tonsils, and 
I am so sad to say, they have to come out. Yes, at my age I
am having my tonsils taken out. Ouch. 
Still waiting on the DR to schedule, but we think this
will happen next week. :o(

Do you "like" my Facebook Page ?
I have some great candy up for grabs when I hit 300 likes
over on my page. I am only a few away from that, so please stop
by, like my page and share with your friends!

Anyhoo- today we have a new palette up over at ColourQ

These colors were a bit of a challenge for me,
blue and gray are not high on my color list!
Eventually it all came together. Here is a look at my project,,,
My background paper is Kaisercraft, all my other papers and 
die-cuts/stickers are from Authentique. 
These chippies are from Dusty Attic; I heat embossed them with a couple of 
different powders for an aged look. Flowers are from I Am Roses.
I also took the wire stems I cut from the flowers, coiled them into little vines
and added them to the flower clusters.
The alphas are from Authentique, the chippie is from Want2Scrap 
and it has been heat embossed as well. 
I really wanted to use this die-cut arrow, but the letters were more of a 
rust color- I took a journal pen and went over them to make it match. 

I am linking up at the following challenges:
Southern Girls - Warn Fuzzies - whats more warm and fuzzy than
cute Girl Scouts handing out Valentine cards? Seriously!
The Paper Girls - use wire

Be sure to link up your project over on the blog 
before noon next Monday!

Thanks for stopping by today!
