Bugaboo 4th Birthday Bash - Day #7 Friday Freebie w/ Four, CFC126: Color Blocks and cQc #225

Hello friends.  I have reached the end of the week long Bugaboo 4th Birthday Bash at the Catch the Bug Challenge Blog.   Thanks so much to many of you for coming by my blog each day and leaving me such very nice comments on my cards!  It really made my day to read them all.  Surprisingly I managed to make a card for each day of the challenge and now I have a few more fund cards for my stash.

So for this last challenge in the Bugaboo's Birthday Bash  series, Day #7 is Freebie/Theme.  They wanted to see us use something in fours in addition to the Friday Freebie digi.   As soon as I got home from work I quickly downloaded this fun free image and got busy coloring so that I could make the challenge before it closed.  My element of 4 is the four color blocks.    Here's what I came up with - please take a look:
Details: Cardstock from Stampin' Up - 
Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Calypso Coral, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White.
Digital image - freebie (1/24/14) from Bugaboo colored with copic markers 
Extras - texture folder and candy dots (SU) for the cherries on the cupcakes

I kept this one quite CAS using a color blocking technique.  The finished card size is 5 1/2 inches square.  
My daughter walked in the room as I was taking the photo and said "oh Mom that's really a cute card".  I love hearing that from her.  Usually she is my biggest cheerleader, but sometimes she can also be my most honest critic :o) 

I'm also entering my card in the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge where they want to see color blocking

and colourQ #225 where I got these fun colors to use
That concludes my short and sweet blog for tonight. Thanks for letting me share my crafty creations with you today and all week.  Til next time...hugs and happy crafting! D
