Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative!


Think Spring


Today’s card was going to be for Two challenges…but I missed the deadline for the Friday Mashup by minutes!

I hate when that happens!  Oh Well,  I will however be entering this over at Stamp TV where Sean is hosting

and asked us to Think Spring!

I used Chalk, Ink and Colored Pencils to make my card!

The BOW…I promise matches the card much better in person….this has happened before with this ribbon…don’t know

quite what the deal is with it! I even took the photo outside thinking that would help.  NOT!

The sentiment and the image is both from Gina K. Designs.

If you have any questions at all….give me a holler!

Have a great day!



Mod Squad Color Challenge

Screen Shot 2014-03-30 at 8.46.09 PM

Happy Monday,

Happy for me…as I get another day off and a Mamogram and an Ultrasound…Yeah!!!

Anyhoo, at least I have the day off!

Today’s card is for the Mod Squad Challenge and Lee our hostess has challenged us

to use Red and Brown on our project!

That flower stamp is one of those Stamps…you don’t know where you picked it up 

but your very glad you did…LOVE it!  The sentiment is Stampin UP and the 

text stamp is from Stampabilities/ Michaels.

The button centers on the flowers is a die cut from MFT.

Paper is from Stampin Up and the Cardstock is Gina K Designs.

This card is going to be in the mail very soon and on it’s way to a dear friend!

I plan on showering her with as many cards as possible!

She needs it and is in my heart continuously! 


Have a terrific day!



For a Dear Friend…

Hello Friends,

Today’s card is for a very dear friend of mine and a Fellow Design Team member,

who really needs a ton of prayer, love, and support right now!

I hope this helps in at least a small way to know how much I care!


Here are some more shots!



Pink and Brown is one of my all time Favorite color combos!

The top panel is a piece of pink vellum that I stamped on and the single brown flower

is heat embossed with brown embossing powder.

I also stamped the same image on the brown cardstock with versamark.

The sentiment is from Verve!

I am entering this card in the following challenges!

The Pink Elephant


Their requirements was to use your favorite color combo.

Paired them up with this great Sketch from my friend Lesley!

DD…..Triple Threat

Hello Friends,

Over at Dynamic Duos this week they have a triple threat going on!


My colors don’t match perfectly as I didn’t have any of the Pale Plum, and

the Soft Sky looks more green to me in the photo so I went with more of a sky blue like

the words said…so I was a little compuzzled to say the least.

Hopefully my colors are good enough!

Despite the color issues….

I loved having the chance to join DD this week!  I love this challenge site!!


I made these balloons a while back on a birthday tag and loved them so much I decided to

make them again!  This time I added the string!

The sentiment is from the Perfect Pennants SU set that I just got!

I don’t know if you realize but I do a lot of paper piecing on my cards.

I always add a thin border or something along those lines as I go.

So when you see all the layers of colors…they are not very large pieces and

are generally on the top and not hidden beneath.  Just thought I would share that…it’s kinda

my signature style so to speak.  I don’t like wasting any paper and I use all my scraps despite their size.

Hope you have a wonderful day!  As I mentioned I am on Spring Break and it’s raining…not a happy girl!

Oh well,  I guess I will stamp some more! :)



Merry Monday 100th Challenge

Hi Friends,

Merry Monday is celebrating their 100th Challenge with this

really cool color challenge and Sketch.  As soon as I saw it I couldn’t wait to

get inky and play along!  I got this really cool evergreen tree stamp

at a craft garage sale and knew right away it would be perfect for my idea!


Here is what I did with it!


I really enjoyed making this card!   I thought the coolest part was

when I punched out my banners (MFT), the inside of the

banner strips makes perfect circles that punch away and I thought

since they have stripes,  why not use them as ornaments.

I should have made all the stripes hang the same direction…OOPS! LOL

I also picked up that cute bow stamp at a garage sale…it’s PERFECT isn’t it?

The sentiment is from Mulberry Wood- Winter Wonderland.

 EEKKKK I am so stoked…

one more day and it’s SPRING BREAK!






Hello Everyone,

Got to try my hand again at Crayon Resist…boy I love this technique!

Here is a link to a great video by Gina K if you have never tried it…and try you must!

I also got to use my new Tag Punch again from Stampin Up along with a

brand new SU Stamp Set called Perfect Pennants.

Also, today’s card is for 3 different challenges…boy has it been a while since I have had

a chance to combine some challenges!  I have had my eye on these blogs all week

and late yesterday I had an hour to sneak away and create!

I am linking this up to these challenge sites!

Each Graphic is LINKED for you incase you want to join!

First my color pallet…


Next, came the sketch…..


Followed by the challenge hosted by a good friend of mine

Donna…which was to use a TAG on your card!

Congrats Donna!


Hope you have a fantastic week,

One more week of school then it’s Spring Break Baby!

 I am so excited!

Sharyn has these great colors for us this week over at JUGS!

When I saw this picture a few weeks back I was in LOVE right away!

Don’t those colors scream happy!

The bonus is…you can pick 3 or use them all the choice is yours!

I used almost all of them…the only color I missed was the yellow!

I also have to give another shout out to my friend and fellow

design team member SHARYN for sending me this awesome stamp set!

It’s from Gina K Designs and is called You Make Me Smile.

Sharyn sent me a boat load of really cool stamps!

You are the BEST! :)  I so appreciate you!  HUGS!

I almost forgot…the card was based on this great sketch over at

Seize the Sketch!


Okay…here is some more info on my card.

I used all SU ink and the DP is from Colorbok.

I just got this really cool scalloped tag punch from Stampin Up and

couldn’t wait to use it!

Used my Dots EF, rhinestones and ribbon and was done!

Please come on over to Just Us Girls and give these great colors a try!

See you there!



Dynamic Duos and an Umbrella!

As soon as I saw this color combo and the “Dessert”

option I knew exactly what I was going to do!
Dynamic Duos Redo 2013-006

I decided it was time to stop re-inventing the wheel every time and to CASE myself!

I don’t know why I don’t do this more often…I need to tell myself that it’s really okay!

Here is my New card followed by the one I ” CASED”.

For the life of me…I can’t get the hot pink colors to come out correct with my photos!

You will have to trust me on this…it’s really bright pink!


I paper pieced the umbrella and raised it up with dimensionals.


I think I am still more in favor of the original…but that’s okay too!

Any questions on either of these…give me a shout out!

The stamps are just something I picked up cheap at Michaels.

Take care,
