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


Seeing Dots…


Today I was feeling a tad better…so I thought I would get up from

the couch and my heating pad and try to make a quick card.

I was looking through my top challenge sites and decided

that Addicted to CAS was the one for me today.

ATCAS - code word circleMy card started very clean and simple and then…

I stamped the sentiment crooked, I smudged my ink and got it all

over my card , and soon realized I should have stayed on the couch. LOL

So what started out CAS got a little more layered.

So ladies over at Addicted to CAS…If this doesn’t quite qualify as Clean and Simple

I SOOO Understand!!!

Not sure if you can tell by my photo, but I used my Scor-pal again

and separated the card in different quadrants.

If you haven’t checked out Addicted to CAS…go have a look!

I have linked up their image for you!

Card Details:

Cardstock: SU and ???? (scrap)

Sentiment: Close to My Heart

Tools: Punches and Scorpal

Thanks for stoppin’ by…I love when you do!



MUSE- A source of Inspiration!

Good Morning,

I am Super excited today to share with you my card, but not only that….

I found one of the coolest new Creative Challenge sites to play along with a few weeks ago,

and I can’t wait to share it with you!  It is called MUSE!

At the top of their blog they have the definitions for Muse.

One of them states: A source of Inspiration!

Isn’t that so cool!!!  Jackie Rockwell is the brains behind this blog

and another one that I love called CASE(E) this Sketch.

and I haven’t even told you the best part yet!

Here are their 3 simple rules over at Muse:

*Use the Muse card as inspiration, explain your interpretation and link back to Muse. 
*Provide supportive comments to at least 3 of your fellow member’s submissions.

So here is my first card that I am linky over at Muse this morning!
I was determined last night to not miss this opportunity again!
I used my Scor-pal to mimic the box in the design!
I also, stamped the pink flower twice and only raised part
of the petals the on the second image!
Muse 6
And here is the source of inspiration!
Isn’t it Beautiful!!!
Which was to incorporate at least 3 buttons in your project.
It was hosted by someone I adore and admirer and
I wanted to make sure I played along!

3 Types of Thankful…


Happy Sunday Stampin Friends,  Today is a gorgeous day in Sunny Florida and as soon as I finish this post I am headed to the outdoors to soak up some Vitamin D.

Yesterday wasn’t as pretty, so I played in my studio for the afternoon and came up with these 3 cards that all were based on this new set of leaf stamps.

It’s made by Cloud Nine Design and has 11 wonderful stamps of all shapes and sizes!

 The first card is being entered in The Freshly Made Sketch Challenge.

The sentiment is from Verve!

The next card is for  The Friday Mashup

which asked us to incorporate leaves into a Thank You card.

The final card is my favorite of the day and I am going to enter this one in the JUGS  Color Challenge.

If you have any questions on today’s cards just let me know!

I am Thankful for so much this year and I hope you are too!

Have a Wonderful Day!
