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




As Independence Day approaches….to quickly I might add,

I thought it was a good time to post a Fourth of July card that I submitted into this Month’s

Die Cut Crazy Magazine. Here is a link to the Magazine.

Right now the DCCM is just for the iPad but they are looking to expand to other forms.

They are growing, and I am so happy for Stephanie the editor,

she is a real sweetheart with brilliant ideas.

Here is a link to the website as well, they are always looking for new submissions for publications.

You can also like them on Facebook and stay up to date with what they are up to!

My card also links up perfectly with the following challenges.

The Pink Elephant (photo inspiration)


Paper Playtime (red, white and blue)


Not sure if you can really tell what technique I used with this card because it is

very subtle but, I tried my hand at water spritzing. A very simple technique.

After you ink up your stamp simply spritz some water on the stamp before stamping.

That’s all there is to it.

Here is a close up.


In the upper corner you can tell the stamp looks like it bled a little.

That’s what it is suppose to do, and you can control how much or how little by the

amount of water you put on your stamp.

Sorry, it’s been a few days since I posted….we are in the middle of a Kitchen remodel

so I have been up to my elbows in painting, cleaning out the cabinets, and re-organizing.

Love my new Quartz counter tops and my sink is so BIG!!!! It’s an undermount with one basin. LOVE IT!

Wish I had a before photo….I will see if I can hunt one down.

Hope you have a wonderful Independence Day if you in fact celebrate it,

if not enjoy your week and happy crafting!

Father’s Day…

While the dessert is baking in the oven and the men in my life are on

the golf course…I thought I would take a minute and post the

card I made for my Hubby, for my son to give to him, at his request.

It goes along with the Father’s Day Theme over at

The Pink Elephant.



Here is my inspiration card I found on Pinterest.

This one is so amazing…not like mine…which is just okay! :/


The reds on my cards look a little orange…must be the lighting.

It is so much fun working with an old book…I do enjoy that!

After I took the photo I realized the script on the card says ” Weird”

right under the large star….What’s funny about it is that is my hubby to a tee.

I am not trying to be mean it’s just the truth…. lol!

If you look to the left it also says ” Smiling” which describes him too

so I feel better now.  LOL

Here is the Link and photo of what is smelling up my house

and making me drool…..YUM!

White Chocolate S’mores Gooey Cake Bars


Want one????

Have an awesome day…thanks for visiting.



I Miss You Like Crazy…

I made this card this afternoon after I completed the usual Saturday chores.  Love when you get and idea and things come together!  I am going to enter it into three different challenges.  First, the sketch challenge over at iSpy Sketches and Secondly, the color challenge over at CR84FN. And Last its for the Any Hero Challenge over at OWH.  If you are not familiar with OWH…go check it out!  It’s an amazing way to say Thanks to the Troops!!  Let me tell you a little bit about how it came together.  Once I picked out the DP (Creative Memories) and the colored card stock which is a mix of CM, SU and Bazzil I took my star stamp from SU and stamped on the tan card stock.  Then I added some distressing with SU Chocolate Ink. Used my Cricut to cut out most of my stars along with a SU scalloped punch. Made the ribbons with scissors and the sentiment is from Verve and is called Heartfelt Phrases. The tag die cut is from My Favorite Things.

Finished it off with a button and some twine and Wolaaaa!

Hope you have a great Sunday…It’s time to watch some Football…GO FSU!!!!

So here it is!

Graduation is just around the corner and before it sneaks up on me like it did last year and my son is in need of numerous Graduation cards , I thought I would get a jump on things!  This is a very, very, basic card, but I am very happy with the simplicity of it!

Hope you enjoyed it! TFL

Seeing Stars…..

In more ways than one!  I’ll explain in a minute- This card is from a challenge over at Stamp TV. Gina asked us to create a project that has stars on it somewhere. It can be anywhere you want- in the background, as a focal image or in the photo of a scrapbook page.  This is what I came up with at the last minute before the challenge was over.  I always seem to be either almost late for a challenge or miss it all together!! LOL  Does this happen to you??

The other reason I will be seeing stars tonight (performing stars) is that in a few minutes my family and are are going to see WICKED the musical- at the Tampa Bay Performing Arts.  Tyler and are are really excited and hopefully when it is all said and done my DH will have enjoyed it as well. ( He’s not quite as excited as us) LOL

We have been waiting for this forever!

You areHappy Fourth Everyone! We are so Blessed to live in such an amazing country!! Hope you have great plans with family or friends today! We don’t have any plans at the moment my son is working,but my hubby and I will probably call some of our friends and see what we can come up with. This card was so much fun to make.  The technique is called crayon resist, and it’s one of the many challenges on over at StampTv.  I made two different pieces of paper with two different star stamps, and I didn’t like the way one of them came out, so I cut it up and attached them with pop dots. I hate throwing anything away and being wasteful. You should see how much scrap paper I have!

Hope you have an awesome Fourth and be safe!

Scrap your heart,
