Pink and Green…

Pink and Green are one of my favorite color combos!  Hope everyone had a nice long weekend!  We spent Monday shopping for college things….which is probably unusual for Memorial Day, but it was very nice being together, and then we had a nice dinner at Carrabbas.

Here are a few cards that I made quite awhile ago and hadn’t had a chance to post!  Love these colors together don’t you?

Enjoy and as always thanks for stopping by!

Color Throwdown #136

I have been a fan of the Color Thrown Down for quite some time and was determined today to make sure I played along.  The colors intrigued me this week so I jumped on board!  I combined a few stamp sets…Close to My Heart ( Rustic Flowers) that I have had forever and Stamp Tv’s ( Say it with Flowers).  I decided that I was going to try to do a card that was CAS ( Clean and Simple).  I think I spent more time than I should have because it was anything but simple!  LOL  I spend way to much time fretting over my cards and need to just relax and let go!  Do you do that too?   Gosh I hope so!

Hope you had a fantastic week!  Enjoy !

Spring Break is here….

Spring Break is here and the weather is Perfect!  Along with the weather it was a great week because I managed to squeeze some creative time in there!  During the work week that is very unusual.  Later today we are going to an outdoor wedding!  Hope you have a great weekend and if you happen to be on Spring Break as well,  Enjoy!

One of the tree cards was made for a challenge over at Stamp TV.

The sentiments were from Melanie Muenchinger’s stamp set Say it with flowers also found over at Stamp TV!

As always your comments are so appreciated!

The inside of this one reads,” The best is yet to be!” And I paper pieced the flowers and one leaf to give it some depth.

I love the layout of this one!

This one is simple with the strips of paper, but I like it very much!


The cardstock is from GKD and the papers are mostly Stampin Up, Creative Memories and scrap.

Stamps: Stamp Tv Melanie Muenchinger: Say it with Flowers and one from Stampin Up: Love Matters

Love is in the air….

You know it’s February when you walk into every store in town and see lots and lots of  RED!   I have never been much of a sentimentalist for Valentine’s Day, but what I thought I would do is post all my “heart” cards I have made over the last year.

The last one is my absolute favorite!!!!

My hubby always says,” I don’t need an official Hallmark day to tell my wife I love her!” 🙂

Hope you have a great Valentine’s Day, however you choose to spend it.
