Welcome to my little stop on this wonderful blog tour. If you lose your way on this blog hop, please go to the VC Rocks Blog at You probably came to my blog from Debbie Martin's fantastic blog Clever and Cute at . After looking at my projects please continue on your tour by clicking on the following link which will lead you to Veronica Miller's awesome Bluegrass Stamper Studio blog at  If you are starting this tour early Saturday morning, some of the links might not be working yet.  Official start time is 10 am EST according to the information at our Yahoo page.  Please come back at that time to see all the wonderful projects or go to the VC Rocks blog page.  I just needed to post mine early to make sure it was online and working.  I am visiting my mom Saturday morning and will be away from the internet for a while.

Our theme for the 2011 May Blog Hop is Color My World. Our projects were to have some sort of coloring on them, such as using Stampin' Up! watercolor crayons, a brayer, markers, or other products to color with. I chose to water color with Stampin' Up!'s classic dye reinkers.

Now on to my projects. I made a matching card and box set.  I want to buy some small gift to fit in the box for my mom for her birthday. I wish the shine of the embossing would show up in the photos.  It is so pretty.  I used the new Doily Triple Layer punch to make label that Happy Birthday is stamped on.

I will have a video up after the blog hop is finished showing how I used my Stampin' Up! Soft Suede classic dye ink to heat emboss.  I also show how I colored the flowers.  Bookmark my site and come back to view the video.  I have a YouTube channel with a few videos at  Scroll down after the photos for a supply list and information about the blog candy I am giving away.
