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


Shabby Chic

Hello Friends,

Spent the day with 3 Talented Crafty girls yesterday and had a wonderful time!

First, we did a craft rummage sale at our local Art Store, I made a whopping 21 dollars…LOL

Next, we went to lunch at this great place by the water in Palmetto

called Riverside Drive Cafe.

Last, what is a get together without a little shopping?

We made a quick stop at Hobby Lobby!


I was thrilled to finally meet one of my fellow DT members from Seize the Birthday too.

JoAnn Burnham she is as sweet as I thought she would be…NO sweeter!

A while back, JoAnn was kind enough to tell me about Sue Lelli, and after

I stocked her blog for a few weeks, I had the courage to ask her if she would

like to meet for lunch and we talked non-stop like we had known each other forever.

Sue L. has introduced me to Mixed Media and is UBER talented at it!

 Susie Morris and I met online at Stamp TV a few years ago and hit it off

right away, she is one of the most generous people I have ever met and

I am so grateful that we crossed paths.

Feeling Blessed!

Anyhoo, onto my card for today!

My blog friend Donna (sure hope to meet her someday, she is to funny)

 is hosting a Shabby Chic challenge over at Stamp TV 

and time is running out, but I wanted to make sure I

supported her in her GD position over there!

Here is what I came up with!


Forgot the matching envelope!  I didn’t have any cream envelopes

so I decided to cover the envelope with the matching DP and added

the sentiment that is also inside the card!


The Design Paper is from Colorbok and is called Wild Rose.

The sentiment is from Gina K and is called Birthday Duo.

I used my Cuttlebug to cut out my doily shape,

my flower stem and my double scallop.

Finished it off with lots of distressing and some embellishments.

Thanks for stopping’ in…I so appreciate all your kind comments and visits!

Until next time,



Tag Your It!

When the every so funny and talented Elise over at the JUGS team

told me this week we were going to be making TAGS.


I will admit the first thing that came to mind was….”Well it was a matter

of time before I crashed and burned on my new Design Team and

this week it’s going to be it!  It was bound to happen soon enough”  LOL.


Well to my surprise, I had a Blast making these tags for you all!

I will admit, if I had a do over button,one of these would be totally done over,

(Far Right)

but heh…1 out of 4 ain’t bad!  Right?

It’s kinda funny, the first one I made is the one I didn’t like and then

I guess the mojo just started flowing!

Thanks so much Elise for Challenging me

this week, and getting me out of my comfort zone!!!

I sure hope your up to the challenge and JOIN US!!  YOU CAN DO IT!!!!

So head on over to the JUGS team blogs

and see how much talent we have going on to inspire you!

It’s truly amazing!!!


Details are going to be kinda tough for these.
I didn’t stamp a thing on them….is that a sin or what!!
I did a lot of piecing with paper.  I got this great paper pack
at a local discount store yesterday and that is what I
ending up using. It’s by Colorbok.  It cost 2.99…what a steal.
In the front it has two sheets of die cuts, stickers and letters
and the rest is some really cool vintage feel paper.
I did use my cuttlebug and Cricut quite a bit.
If you have any questions at all Please give me a shout out!
I almost forgot…..
Tag your it!!



Best Wishes…

Tonight’s quick post is for three challenges.  We have the Shabby Chic or Vintage challenge over at The Pink Elephant, the color challenge over at CR84FN, and I combined those with the sketch challenge over at ispy Sketches.   This card is for a co-worker who obviously is soon to be married.  The photo shows that my grays are totally contrasting when actually they are almost the same hue, one is just a lighter shade than the other.  😦

Some card details:

Paper: SU, Gkd, and CM

Sentiment: Computer generated

Cutllebug, Cricut  3-Spellbinders

Pearls, ribbon, flowers,gems, and pop dots.

I tried to add some texture to my paper with a little distressing.

Have a great Sunday,
