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

Friday Mashup with Kraft and Gingham



Hello Friends,

I know… don’t fall over in your chair because I am posting a card on a Tuesday, it’s weird for me too!

I am jut lucky enough to have the entire week of from school ..Yipeeeee!  So yesterday I had a chance

to create for a challenge that I have been neglecting lately.

I love The Friday Mashup and love the colors they chose this week.

Although I didn’t put any snowflakes on my card I think it’s okay,

because I did use Kraft and Gingham which were the requirements this week.


Here is the card I got my inspiration from…I like to give credit where credit is due!

Here is her blog! She does great work!


Isn’t it cool?

My only regret is that I didn’t distress my card.  It was to late when I realized. 😦

I used the Stampin Up corner punch to make my tree!


Most of the paper is from Creative Memories along with the zig zag piece.

The star is a gold sheet of vellum, but it doesn’t look very shiny in the photo.

The word PEACE is made with an alphabet set of stamps that I love.

I ran the base of my tree and the brown backgrounds piece through my Cuttlebug

using a stripes SU Embossing Folder.

The rest is made with various star punches.

Hope you have a fantastic day!

Mine is going to be great!  My son is coming home tonight! So stoked!

Let the baking begin!
