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

Curtain Call and Marine Life…



Hello friends,

Now that the Zucchini Bread is made, Nieman Marcus Bars are cooling

and the Lasagne is made for tonight’s dinner,

I thought I would pop in and show you a card that I made for a couple of challenges.


First, Curtain Call.  This is a new (old) challenge blog that I use to follow

years ago and they are BACK and let me tell you

the talent they have put together on the DT is AMAZING!

I am so excited!  I was determined to play along!

However, when I realized that the theme this week was Nautical…I kinda froze.

I couldn’t find any stamp besides this little one that screamed Nautical.

So I thought fish are Nautical too…right???

So I hope they will forgive me for it being so insignificant and also

excuse the lovely black line where I rocked my seahorse stamp! 😦

This set is from Stampin Up by the way.

 It just so happens to also work with the Marine Life theme this time over at

Crazy 4 Challenges.…don’t you love when that happens.

They say small things amuse small minds!  Oh wait that’s an insult….LOL


 I also stamped the inside of my card to match!  I took my watercolor painter and

made some streaks to resemble water.  Decided to not use a sentiment because I thought it

was a great masculine card, which can be hard to come by,

and wanted to leave my possibilities open.

So glad you stopped by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Run and go check out both challenges it’s not to late!!!
