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

Bleach and a JUGS Sketch



Hello Friends,

I had a great time creating this card for two different challenges.

I started with this awesome sketch from Cheryl over at Just Us Girls

Screen Shot 2014-04-10 at 6.56.07 AM

and combined it with a Technique challenge over at Stamp TV hosted

by my friend Judy.  She has beautiful samples over there for you to see!


She asked us to use bleach on our creation.  

Here is a video from Gina K. for you to watch if you have never tried this before.

I really recommend it…it’s so much fun with endless possibilities. 

I pretty much did exactly what Gina did on this video!

Just be really really careful not to get it on your work space or clothes.  Speaking from experience. LOL

So come on over to Just Us Girls and join us this week for our color challenge!

You won’t be disappointed when you see what the team has done along with our

New Guest Designer Barbara Campbell!


If you Become ” Chic Of the Week” you are in the running as

possibly being a Guest Designer with us.

Have a great day and find some time to create,
