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


Wild Card over at JUGS…

I am hosting this week over at JUGS …check it out!

JUGS snow

I decided to make our Wild Card a One Layer Winter Theme and

since half of the country is experiencing winter it worked out perfectly!

 Even in sunny Florida, it’s going to go

 down to the 50’s tonight….Brrrrrrr…..LOL

I didn’t take step by step photos, I forgot…sorry!  However,

I do have a photo of what I used to make my rolling snow hills.


I just varied the placement of my strips of paper and started at the top of my card and

worked my way down.   Then when I stamped my trees and my sentiment

I rocked my stamp ( of course I did)  and that’s why I have a thick layer of glittery snow

to try and cover my mistakes.  I intended to have the glittery snow much lighter.

All in all, I think it turned out okay.

 The girls and I over at JUGS also want to give a shout out and a thank you to

Nancy Penir our Guest Designer this past month.

  Nancy, you did and awesome job and we sure are impressed

One Layer Wonder

CAS 11

Today over at CAS on Sunday we have a great challenge for you that your going to love!


 ‘One Layer Wonder’

Your card must have only one layer, nothing else to add height or interest,

or to cover up mistakes, which is what I usual have to do.

I must say that this was a little bit challenging for me as well.

 I had to really stop myself from adding bling or a ribbon to this card.

So if you except this challenge and join me…good luck refraining! LOL

To achieve this effect of my card, I did a lot of masking.

I have linked up this technique for you, if you don’t know what that means.

I forgot to mention this is the wonderful prize you can win this time

from our Sponsor the Alley Way Stamps!

It’ a stitch…don’t ya think?


Now, head on over to the Challenge site and see what else the

fabulous DT did to spark your interest!

I have everything linked up for you!

Have a great Sunday!
