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

Inspiration time over at JUGS~


Hello friends,

School is back in session and this Chic is wiped out!

 It’s going to take me a couple of weeks to get back to this

5 days a week and then some… work sort of thing!

Plus, my son left for college again on Wednesday

so it’s back to that empty nest feeling again.

Let me just say, I don’t like it very much at all!!

 Hubby and I were spoiled this summer having Ty

here since the middle of May.  SIGH!!!

Anyhoo, speaking of school!

 Tangii has a great inspiration photo for us this week over at JUGS!


This is what I did with it!


One of my teacher’s at school gave me this awesome sticker set last year

because she knew I loved to scrapbook.

I found it the other day as I was setting up my room

and thought this would be perfect for my card for JUGS!

So, I have a mixture of stamps, die cuts, and ink on this card.

I must admit I felt as if I was cheating using those stickers!

The paper is a stamp from Verve.  The sentiment is SU.

I distressed the card stock, the apple and the stem a little bit,

but looks as if I should have done more!  I thought the white pen

was a nice touch at the end!….and of course a ribbon!

I am also linking this up to the back to school challenge over at

The Friday Mashup!

Sure hope you join us this week over at Just Us Girls for our

Inpsiration Photo Challenge!

Here are the links to my fellow teammates blogs to
