Color Challenge Monday

Happy Memorial Day to you all!

Well I am back in the USA and running as usual to get caught up on all that happened while I was gone.

Did you ever have one of those “Oh My Gosh” moment? Well that happened while making this card. Candice and I had picked out our colors and I chose Gable Green and Pixie Pink (pink and green are hot colors this spring). I had also chosen the set Polka Dots & Paisley (hadn’t used it in a while and thought it was time to give it a chance) to use on the card. I sat and stared for a while and played with some layouts in my mind but nothing was hitting me as the one to use. I had stamped the saying and was cutting the layers when I saw this large triangle sitting there and all of a sudden it hit me. Use the triangle in the upper corner on a white card and everything just fell into place. I started stamping, layering, and glittering and here is what I came up with!

Stamps: Polka Dots & Paisley Paper: Gable Green, Pixie Pink, White Ink: Gable Green, Pixie Pink Accessories: Green stickles, Gable Green & Pixie Pink markers, Spica clear glitter pen, Sakura Stardust , Gelly Roll pen, ribbon (Michael’s during the spring sale), dimensionals, sponge

Hope you liked it. Thanks for looking and have a great day!


What a cute little card for a picnic invitation. I just folded a Carousel Note and then used the Coluzzle Cutting System for the White CS and the Rose Red CS. I used the word window punch for the seeds or buttons would be really cute.

Thanks for stopping by hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Party for Teacher

My daughters teacher (love her) just got her masters and graduated on Wednesday, so one of the other moms and I decided to have a surprise party for her today at 2:30. We both told our children Cameron and Sloane to go in and tell all the other children in their class. We told them to make sure not tell the teacher about our little surprise, and so far so good.

I made a 13×9 cake cut it and half and decorated them like pencils. I saw this done in Family Fun magazine and thought it would be cute, I LOVE this magazine they have some of the cutest things to do with children. Well we just have a few more hours to go, I hope it will be a surprise.

Wednesday’s Design by Robbie

I saw Pam’s card and knew I wanted to use it as a jumping off place. I love the Priceless set and use it so much (I bought it basically for the swirls and never knew I would use the whole set as much as I do). Here is what I did with her design.

Stamps: Priceless, Warm Words Paper: Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise, White, Flowers for You DS Ink: Certainly Celery, Lovely Lilac, Regal Rose, Tempting Turquoise Accessories: Certainly Celery – Lovely Lilac – Regal Rose – Tempting Turquoise brads, ticket corner punch, dimensionals, sponge.
By the time you read this we will be spending the final day on our trip in Rome. We have toured Italy and are probably exhausted and broke. We all fly home tomorrow to go our separate ways. Time passes very quickly. Suddenly your little ones are grown up and making a life on their own. Take the opportunity to spend time with them as much as possible. I will treasure these past 14 days for the rest of my life.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Scrappin’ Color Challenge

I had my Simply Scrappin’ Card Making class this weekend and here are 8 of the fun cards that we made with the Tie the Knot Kit. As you can tell I am really liking these Kits for Card Making. I hope everyone is doing well and I will talk to you soon.
