A Final card for the ColourQ.... (CQC #179)

Hi friends, I am a little sad today.... I had to make a tough call over the weekend to leave a blog I've been on the DT with for over 2 years. I am saying goodbye to my dear friends at the ColourQ. I am sad, but it's time. I have too many balls in the air right now, and had the realization last week that I'm not very good at juggling. Being kinda "type A" about commitments, it was bothering that I had really begun to slip with comments and voting for the CQC.

And the truth is, I have a whole LOT going on.... I'm teaching theater to kids again, and that commitment will continue to grow next year as I'll be heading up a Theater Club for my school's PTO. I am involved with a card ministry at my church, I lead a book group, I craft, I blog, I'm a PTO Chairperson, and up until Friday, I was DT or Contributor for 3 sites/companies besides my own blog. Then there's my sister's wedding coming up, and did I mention I spend 2 hours in my car 4 days a week just getting Ev back and forth to preschool? Life is crazy, and things are always evolving and changing. Truly, this last few years have been full of major peaks and valleys. I'm getting better about accepting it, I don't "sweat the small stuff" the way that I used to. So, I know that this is right, it's bittersweet because I know I'll have a bit more time for things I'd like to focus on, like magazine submissions, some more home decorating projects, and the race I'm training for. But I will also miss working with the FABULOUS, TALENTED group of ladies that make up that DT! I'll play the challenge whenever I can, though! :)

So, here is the palette for today...
And here is my card, pretty simple, I hadn't inked up this cute SU! set yet. I thought these animals were precious! :)

Do you like the fuzzy/flocked yellow dot? It reminded me of fur, for this cute yellow kitten. :)

And that is all for me, for right now. I will be back in one hour with a brand NEW TCP Tuesday Challenge! Hope you can pop back in later. :)

Hugs, Noelle
