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




Hello Everyone,  Today over at Just Us Girls it’s Word Week and the word that has been selected is perfect for this time of the year…  LEAVES!  Fall is hopefully right around the corner, as this heat in Florida is getting a tad ridiculous!  I can’t remember an August and the start of September being this warm in recent years.   Okay onto the real reason you are here!  It just so happens that the  Curtain Call also has a gorgeous inspiration shot of leaves for their challenge this time around, so I will also be linking my card over there this week as well.  Love when things Fall together that way…..LOL!  🙂

lovely leaves

Here are a few details on my card: Sentiment and bird is from Verve from the With Love set. Leaves are from Cloud Nine…I have had them for years and LOVE them! The ink is all Stampin UP and that gorgeous ribbon is also Verve.  I have scoring down three of the sides of my panel and not sure it’s real noticeable in the photo.  I speckled my background a little before and after I stamped the leaves…such a fun technique and paper pieced the little bird. The banner is a nestabilitie.  That about does it.  Hope you come on over to Just Us Girls and see what the Design Team has been up to and welcome our new Guest Designer Bobby Hagen!  WELCOME BOBBY I am thrilled you are with us this week! Remember if your selected as our Chic of the Week you are in the running for a possible spot as a Guest Designer too.  See you over at JUGS!
