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

Chevrons/ Sketches and Birthdays


Hi Friends…Hope you are surviving the winter blast!  My son

goes to college at FSU and they actually called school for a Snow Day yesterday!

He was so thrilled!  But by the weekend we will be bak in the high 70’s.

Anyways,  Today over at Seize the Birthday our toppings option is…


Just remember to keep it a Birthday Theme!

If your not a toppings kinda person, well… can just

stick with our usual “Anything Goes”Birthday!

 The choice is yours!

IMG_0004I combined our challenge with this fabulous sketch over at Viva la Verve.

Right when I saw it I knew I didn’t want to miss it!


Card Details:

The DP is some of my all time favorite!  I received it at a Stamp Expo

in a surprise gift bag and I absolutely use it ever so sparingly because I like it so much!

The stamps are both from Verve: Plain Jane/ flower and the sentiment is from Poppy Birthday.

The chevron embossing folder is also Stampin Up.

Used a punch to make my leaves and fussy cut 2 sets of flowers

to give it some dimension on pop dots.

Hope you have a fantastic day and please join us at Seize the Birthday!

We would love it if you would!

Here are some links to get you started!
