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

Happy 40th Birthday…


Hello my faithful friends,

A co- worker asked if I would make a 40th Birthday card for her with a flower on it.

I knew right away that I was going to get to use my new Verve stamps and Dies

that I had just recently won!  Woohoo!  I hope she likes Poppies!

I got this amazing card idea from Julee herself…the owner and creator of

Verve Stamps.  If you have never seen or used Verve Stamps…I highly recommend them!!

They stamp beautifully and are really good quality!!  I have been a huge fan since I started stamping!

Here is a link to their blog as well!

Here is my card …


and here is Julees!


Love her added sequins!!

Isn’t fabulous??

 And she says she can’t do Clean and Simple….bahahhaha  wrong! 🙂

I used my Cricut to make my letters and numbers and the word birthday….

is actually part of a stamp from Close to My Heart.

I used a MS border lace punch and lots of pop dots!

I am linking this up to the Dynamic Duos color challenge this week.


My colors are a little lighter but in the same family, so I hope it’s okay…fingers crossed!

Thanks for checkin’ in on me…I love when you stop by!

I will be back tomorrow with a great card based on a sketch from Seize the Sketch!

Until then…..happy stamping!
