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




….and the living is easy!  Had to finish my line from my title. LOL

Pretty soon the living will be easy….3 more days of school. WooHooo!

In honor of “Summertime” being around the corner I decided that would

be a great “Topping” option over at Seize the Birthday this time around!

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

stick with our usual “Anything Goes”Birthday!

The choice is yours!


I got a little creative with my card.  I wanted to use a Sun on my

card and all I had in my stamps was a small one.  So I stretched

the envelope and use a Doily stamp from Stampin UP.

My hubby thought it was kinda strange… and the jury is

still out for me, I am undecided how I feel about this card.

The yellow from my tag and sun match much better in person

to my DP, then they do in my photo too.

I made the clouds myself.

The pennant die is from MFT.

The sentiment is a Studio G from Michaels.

The paper is from Fancy Pants-titled Parkbench.

Now,  Head on over to Seize the Birthday and check out

my fellow designers wonderful cards and see what “ SUMMERTIME” 

means to them and then show us what it means to YOU!

See you there,
