Wednesday Color Blog Hop -- May 27, 2015

Happy Wednesday.  Hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend.  I had a great time.  My grands came for a visit and we had a blast.  Part of the weekend their dad had to work, so I got to spend quality alone time.  We spent Monday at their swimming pool, and I have a ton of pictures for our scrapbook.  What a gorgeous day.  Hope your weather was a nice as mine.

Well, you are here today for the color blog hop.  Our challenge today is to use the inspiration piece below and the Stampin'Up! colors Robbie interpreted to create something.   This is probably the last time we will be able to use Crisp Cantaloupe, as it retires on June 2nd.  I love that color and am going to miss it, but I know I will keep it in my "stash" and use it from time to time.  

You probably arrived to my website by way of Liz's blogsite.  I wonder how she used these colors.  I need to go take a look, but I'm sure her creation is super.  So without any more "ado" here is our inspiration piece, and below it is our list of colors.  

 I wanted to do a little something different.  I chose to do a pinwheel fold card.  I saw it on Rachel Tessman's blog, but I believe it also was on the Splitcoast Stampers site and was done by Dawn Olchefsky.  Some of our colors for today are used inside, so I included a picture of the inside too.  I had fun doing this piece and plan to make more using some brighter colors.

What a fun card this will be to receive too, I think.  Well, at least I think it will be.

Now you should continue to Robbie's blogsite.  She started us out, but if you began with me or anyone else, continue on to her and you will go all the way around.  Very funny, just now when I went to Robbie's blog to copy her site name and link to mine for the hop, I see that I was not the only one this week to come across the pinwheel fancy fold.  She has a great one from yesterday.  Love it and love that color combination.  I want to do a really bright birthday one.  So join us and give that fancy fold a try.

See you soon,

Color Blog Hop -- May 20, 2015

Hi everyone.  Welcome back to another blog hop Wednesday.  We have some bright colors for you today, and once I saw the inspiration piece, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  You should have arrived here from Liz's blogsite.  How pretty is her card.  Love those flowers.

Here is the inspiration piece we were to work from, and the coordinating Stampin'Up! colors:

Those beautiful colors spoke birthday to me.  Although I didn't show you the open card here, inside it is birthday that is being celebrated, however, any day could be celebrated.  I used the design piece and word from the Celebrate Today birthday set in the Occasions catalog.  I finally invested in both the stamp set and the framelits.  I am so happy they carried over to the new catalog.  This is definitely going to be a "go to" set.

This is a very simple card, but that is what I like about it.  Colorful, happy and quick 'n easy.  Hope you like it.

Now head on over to Robbie's blogsite.  She has a very "shimmery" card for you.  Then continue on to see what everyone else has for you.  There are very talented gals in this hop.

See you soon,

Color Blog Hop -- May 6, 2015

Hi everyone.  So spring has finally arrived.  I am so happy to see all the green, it makes me feel good.  Now if I could just get out in the yard and do some work.  Oh well.  Today is our color blog hop.  You should have arrived from Liz's blogsite.  She usually works very hard at her creations.  I always am impressed.  When you finish with me you will want to continue around the hop and go over to Robbie's blogsite.  Robbie is another talented crafter.  In fact, all our gals are quite talented.  You will want to see what they have for you today.

This week we are challenged to use lots of yellow.  I think I got carried away with the yellows on my card.  Take a look at the inspiration piece here:

 and then here are our Stampin'Up! colors:

 And here is the card I created.  I hope you like it.

By the time you arrive here at my blog I will be on my way to the North.  Hubby and I are travelling up to Rhode Island and then Connecticut where we will spend some time with 3 of our grandsons and their parents.  I love every time we visit.  Those boys are a delight!

I'll see you soon.

Happy Crafting,
