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

Hip Hip Hooray….summer is on it’s way!


This card was tough to put together….it was just one of those days when nothing you tried quite worked exactly liked you had planned.

I found myself taping and glueing and then taking it apart, ripping it and then trying to do it again…with the same results!

I am sure you have had one of those days before….at least I hope so!

I almost tossed the entire card, but refrained so here it is!

Don’t look to closely….major flaws everywhere!

Beach Ball was made by hand!  Boy was it tough cutting out that Bikini top! LOL



This card, as unsatisfied as I may be with it…. is still going to be linked up over at Fusion this week!

I decided to Fuse the challenge this week!

Although, I may have no flowers on my card…I went with the color scheme…along with the Sketch!

If you haven’t heard of this site…I highly recommend it!

So unique and fresh and loaded with talent…

both by the Design Team and the players!
