Welcome to my wacky world. I call it that because sometimes I feel like I am off in my own world. As the saying on one of my stamps and
my fridge magnet says "I know i'm in my own little world. It's OK they know me here."

Here you will learn a little about me and my life. Like my marriages, my critters and my hobbies. I love taking photos. so along the way there might be alot of photos.My life is full of ups and downs, more often the downs. I just try to keep on a happy face. Doesnt always work when you suffer from anxiety and depression. But I still always manage to keep my Bubbly little personality.

So i have gone and done it and finished my swaps for the 15th,  Yikes i cut it kinda close.

This one is My color swap that i am in.  i had chosen the colors Pink and ??, Purple and ??, and black with vibrant color.  My black and vibrant color was easy peasy for figuring out as i played with the Bliss stamp set and tweaked it lots.  :)  You remember my Monthly swap card and my SU club card.  well i tweaked it once more.  My vibrant color I Chose is a bright Green.  I have a few shades of Green on the card.  First i used SU black card stock and then i took my Polished stone DP by Murdock papers in Green tea, then i added a black embossed sheet, (cant think of the name, but its a cuttlebug folder).  Then i took the Spellbinders deckled oval Largest one and i sponged Gable Green all over it.  Then I took my Bliss stamp.  The ribbon came from Walmart and is French something or other. ( i really do have to start writing down what i use and names of product.  LOL!)  I then added a few Prima and recollections flowers.  the center of the flowers are self adhesive rhinestones and recollections glitter dots.

This one is my Purple and ??  well i did green, since the foliage is green and i had the most perfect DP i got from Archivers the last time i was there.  The pattern is actually pink with a touch of purple and some green.  Its got embossing and glitter in it.  It was just perfect for this image.

This one is my Pink and ??  Well I did Blue.  i got 2 different blues but that's because in my stash of things for some reason i could find just plain ribbon that matched my blue paper.  so i got a bright blue and a light blue.  That's okay though because the paper has bright pink and light pink as well.  so i guess it works out great.  :)
That's the one thing i can never get to match perfectly for all cards in a swap is the Flowers.  i always have a few of this color and a few of that color.   Oh and you cant forget one of this design.  So i kinda mix and match the flowers the best i can to fit the colors of the card.   The DP on this card is in fact Glitter and its almost the weight of light chipboard.  It is made by Recollections.  I found a really great purple one with swirls on it.  I'm a sucker for glittery shiny things i guess.  but it worked great for this swap.  although i have no stamping on this card and surprisingly it still took me 2 hours to make all 6.

There we have it my color swap cards.  hope you enjoyed.
