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


U Hold the Key…

Hi Friends,  Here is a card that goes along with my hosting Challenge over at Stamp TV to use a bold letter like a monogram and also was made for the sketch challenge over at ispy Sketches. Boy I really love this sketch!!! The stamp set I used to make this card is called Timeless Treasures and you can find over at Stamp TV. It was one of the first stamp sets I ever purchased when I started stamping!!


My hand at Sponging a background…

 Well, it was about time I tackled Theresa Momber’s gorgeous sponging technique to make a background and stop saying someday I want to try this.  Well, the someday was yesterday!  I came across this Inspiration photo challenge over at FYI and knew their was also a deadline approaching over at Stamp TV for sponging,  so I decided to combine the two challenges and this is what I came up with.  Well, certainly you can tell that I need some more work.   A couple of the colors on the edges got darker than I wanted them to, and I have a line where the horizon meets the clouds that is probably not necessary, but hey I am a newbie at this!  However, I am very pleased for my first attempt.

I took my inspiration for my mountains from the sky in the photo.  I didn’t use the orange and substituted pink instead.

The sentiment is from Timeless Treasures over at Stamp TV.

I challenge you to try something you have been procrastinating!!!

 Good luck!
