New Home Notelets with the ColourQ

I've been keen on making a set of small, one-sided cards ever since I saw the lovely Reading Relish notelets at Jacks Arty Crafty Kreations. A friend just bought a new house, and I liked the idea of her having some pretty yet simple cards that she could use for "new address" cards. She's one of those people to whom art & poetry are as natural & necessary as food & sleep, and I love making things for her. I know she'll love this colourQ combo.

Guess who just got a
Sizzix Texture Boutique?! That's right it's me, CG! I just love it, more than I even thought I would. For these, I stamped and embossed the pieces, mounted them to the secondary colors, and then ran them through the embosser with the paisley folder. I can't believe how well that worked!
