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

Stars and or Stripes



Hello Friends,

With Fourth of July weekend right around the corner the ladies and I

over at Seize the Birthday have a “Toppings” option that fits the occasion.

STB Toppings

You don’t have to stick to the traditional Red, White and Blue like I did,

just incorporate Stars and or Stripes in your card!

And remember over at STB the “Topping” is and Option and not a requirement!

You just have to stick to the Birthday Theme!

I also, have a brand new Challenge site that one of my

friends and fellow Just Us Girls teammates has started and it’s called…

Mixed Media Mojo!

I just so happened to have been dabbling in MM this week so it worked out

perfectly when I heard all about it!  Don’t you love when that happens!

They also have a Patriotic theme going on!

Best of Luck Maria…on your new Challenge Site!

Here are a couple more shots of my card so that you can see the details.


My new favorite thing is Embossing paste!  Soooo Fun!!  

I have two layers on my flag.

It’s so much fun going through my stencils and using them again!


I got a little carried away with my Ranger Rick Red Ink spritz,

but what ya gonna do..I am still learning!  I guess I have a heavy finger! LOL

I soooo wish I would have taken step by step shots of this card..because it had many steps.

I even took my stencil and layed it back on my card to color in the

stars they have paste under them as well.

The Silver DP at the bottom I loved, but thought it needed a couple of red and blue

stars on it to tie it all in together.  Luckily I have a small star hole punch!

The sentiment is from Verve!

I have a girlfriend who has a Fourth of July Birthday…and I sure hope she likes her card!

Now, I have linked up both sites for you to go and check out!

I hope to see you over at STB this time!  

You wouldn’t believe what my talented team did

with the Topping this week!

Take care and Happy 4th!
