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



Hello Blog friends,  Are you watching the Olympics as much as we are?  I never have my TV on during the day but it sure has been on a bunch lately.  Although the Olympics are sucking up a lot of my time I did manage to create this card yesterday afternoon.  I think I snuck away when they were showing Skulling (rowing) I’m not a fan…lol.  This card didn’t turn out quite as planned the blue flower in the corner was added last minute to cover up some poor attempt at continuing the pattern from the design paper.   It worked pretty well and I should have left well enough alone and I pushed it to far!  Please tell me you do that too?  Either use something to cover something up that looks bad…or take things to far and wish you would have just left well enough alone?  I am gong to enter this into two challenges.  The Paper Players Tic Tac Toe challenge…LOVE these type of challenges…makes you so flexible and the other is for the Sketch Challenge at Retro Sketches…they are one of my favorite sketch challenges on the web!

 I saw this technique on making circle flowers on Pinterest where you take circles from a punch and make a flower!  Super easy!!!

The sentiment is very old and its Stampin Up!

On the Tic Tac toe board for the Paper Players….I went with Circles, Blue and Floral!

Well enjoy the rest of your day….back to the Olympics for me….girls Water Polo…talk about amazing!
