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

Birthday Wishes


It is a gorgeous day here in sunny Florida!

Hope you have enjoyed your weekend whether

you had sunshine or not!

I just got home from a wonderful breakfast on the water followed

by some much needed exercise walking trails in a nature park.

Something about being outdoors, just wipes me out!

Last night I finished this card before Hubby and I watched

Michigan play in the Final Four….man…what a game!

Go Blue!

When I sat down to design this card I had two challenges in mind.

The first is for this week’s Color Throwdown (what a gorgeous color palette)

and the next one is a new Sketch Challenge site I stumbled upon

called Seize the Birthday! It’s fabulous!!! I am not sure how new it is…but it’s new to me!

Here is what I came up with!

IMG_2081Not crazy about how the stickles came out on the photo, but trust me it looks better in person!

I have a new camera too…so I am experimenting with getting better photos!  Wish me luck!
