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

Black and White



Hello Friends,

Over at Seize the Birthday this time around are toppings option is

to use Black and White on your Birthday card!

STB Toppings

 Let me tell you the

Design Team and I enjoyed this one a lot, but a few of the gals said

it was hard to refrain from adding some color there somewhere.  I would

have to agree, I kept thinking if I could just add a punch of red it would be great!

So now it’s your turn to head on over to Seize the Birthday and show us 

your black and white, but remember that our toppings option is

optional, if you just want to share with us a Birthday card that 

would be great too!  


If this card looks somewhat familiar I made one similar a few months ago

and loved it so much I thought I would try it again, but change it up a tad.

The vase and sentiment is from Gina K designs and the white

dots are the negatives left over from a very cool die cut border I got from Verve!

The vase is actual a clear stamp and thought it would be fun to give it some texture

with a stamp I got at a Garage Sale that is shaped like a cube and has

4 different textures on it.  It’s one of those stamps I could never part with…

you know what I mean?

Still working with my camera…and let me just say…if you think buying an

expensive camera will make your photos look amazing over night…think again!

Hope you have a Wonderful Day and I see you over at STB!
