Coloring Down the LinesWelcome to our Wed

Welcome to our Wednesday blog hop!  You started with Robbie, and you just came from Amanda's blog  You will find lots of beautiful cards today. My card looks different from the inspiration photo, but I assure you, it is in line with colors which are Baked Brown Sugar, Smoky slate (which are the fence) and Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise (flowers) and Pistachio Pudding and Pear Piazazz 9 (leaves).  I guess I like it, it's pretty typical.  I think it's neat the way you can make all sorts of wood pieces by using different color, all of which look great together.  Let's go to Helen's blog.  I cant wait to see what she cooked up.  Always a treat! Thanks for visiting, and come visit me again.  Carol Smith

Chopped challenge #2

Welcome everyone!  I am doing a challenge posted to facebook that's called Homemade Crafters. This is our second challenge, and it is fun.  We were sent the Bubble dsp, the melon mambo ribbon, the jute string, and the 3 candy dots in Old Olive.  I thought it looked like baby colors, so this is what I came up with.  Let me know how you like it.  Cute, huh?  Enjoy your Tuesday.  Join me tomorrow on another hop.  Carol Smith

Wednesday Hop- Happy 4th of July!

Welcome to our Wednesday blog hop!  I hope everyone enjoys their weekend with family and friends!  Our theme for today is the 4th, or course, so when I think of that, I think stars and fireworks!  These are beautiful colors together, and I can't wait to see what everyone else interprets into their creations. You just saw what Amanda made,  and it's a beauty for sure.  Our inspiration piece and colors are above.  What a great job Robbie did in picking them.  Soft sky, Marina Mist, Night of Navy, Real Red, Rose Red, and Sahara Sand.  I embossed my sahara sand star in clear powder, and made the rest of them and fussy cut them and put them up on popdots.  Very dimensional.  Hope you like it.  Helen will do a "bang up" job, I know.  Lets' go see.  :)  Well, thanks for visiting, and come back next week.  Carol Smitih

Color Blog Hop with a Different Fold

Are you enjoying the hop so far?  This was a tough one!!!  Both in color and shape.  We had to use Pistachio Pudding, Pear Pizazz and Garden green along with Basic Gray, Real Red and Blushing Bride.  And the sidekick was to use a different fold other than side or top fold.  I didn't know what to do with all those odd greens, but I spied a piece of retired Christmas DSP, and thought I'd make a Christmas card,  I laid out all the elements, and decided to use the stamp set "Choose Happiness". The sentiments go inside the flap.  And my fold is a Z fold.   I hope you like it.  I"m not sure I do, but this is it!  You've come from Amanda's site at Her card is awesome as usual.  Let's now go to Helen's blog at  I can't wait to see it.  I hope the rest of you had an easier time than I did.  I get to surf the blogs with my Grandson Gabriel today.  My first day to babysit, since my daughter goes back to work.  Have fun, I know i will.    Thanks for visiting.  Carol Smith

An open Heart

Good morning ladies, it is gloomy this morning here in Bedford county, but I hope this card will cheer you up.  I was just playing with the new stamp set, An Open Heart, just to see what it looks like stamped, and WOW!  Isn't it beautiful?  I stamped the branch with mossy meadow, and the bird in early espresso and colored them in.  Added a couple pearls for the berries, and embossed the top with one of my spares (not SU)  :( .  The centiment is stamped in smoky slate.  Thanks for visiting.  Carol Smith
