I Appreciate the Love and a Card too!

Hi Friends,

Before I post my card I want to say THANK YOU for all the love

and patience you have shown me as of late.

You all were so kind when I posted some personal stuff here on my blog

and I really appreciate it!  HUGS to each one of you!  I love my blogosphere friends!!

 Also, I am back to work and you know what that means…pure utter exhaustion!

Till this school year gets off the ground, it maybe rather quiet for a week or so!

Hang with me and don’t give up! PLEASEEEEEE!

Okay,  It’s time for an Anything Goes challenge over at Seize the Birthday

and here is what I have done this week!

My deepest apologies for the photos…I did something to the settings of my camera

and can’t figure out how to fix it! :(

This is a type of tri-fold card and not to hard to do!   If you have any questions please let me know.

I started this card at my Stampin Up club and finished it when I got home so

that I could make a few changes!  So the idea was not mine, but my talented

SU Demonstrator.

The sentiment on the outside is from Verve and the one on the insides are

Stampin Up and something I picked up at Michaels.

My heart border on the front is a new Verve Die….Love it!

Now head on over to Seize the Birthday and join us…

hope to see you there!

Before I go WordPress has changed their formatting and I don’t like it one bit!

So I hope this looks good and posts on time as I can’t quite figure it out as of yet,

Or if you got an email last night that I posted something new my deepest apologies!

So frustrating!  GRRRRRRRR!!!

Congratulations Son!

Hello Friends,

A little over a Week ago my son Graduated from College and to say that I am proud

of him is a HUGE understatement!  Not only did he graduate in 3 years instead of the typical

4 he took an average of 45 credit hours a year while doing so.

He has such drive and determination!!  As I type this

he has already into week 8 of his Masters at Savannah College of Art and Design!

He says no rest for the weary!  Just keep on keeping on!  I don’t know where he came from?

 The cool part is he has done all this while maintaining a job for the

last 2 years, working 40+ hours a week, and is doing his Masters on his dime not ours!

Am I lucky or what?  

Here is a Graduation card I made for him to go along with the FSU class ring we got him!

I can’t take credit for the card Idea…all credit goes HERE!

Very happy with how it turned out.  The tie says it all, it’s my son all the way!

Go NOLES!

In conclusion!

I will always need my son no matter what age I am.

My son has made me laugh, made me cry, made me proud, seen me cry,

hugged me tight, seen me fail, cheered me up, and acccepted me for who I am.

My son is a promise that I will have a FOREVER Friend!

I LOVE you TY Leppek and couldn’t possibly be more proud to call you SON!

Thanks for letting me share what I have been up to lately,

Now where are those gosh darn tissues?

Who Doesn’t Love Ribbon?

Screen Shot 2014-07-09 at 8.24.44 PM

 Hello Friends,

I am hosting this week over at Just Us Girls and it’s WORD week

and I have made it super, super simple…

the word I selected is Ribbon!

You can show us a little or a lot!

While your there give a shout out to our New Guest designer for the month of August!

Kristie Goulet!

Now some details on my card!

I have done this technique two other times and I really love it!

Take the negative of any diecut and adhere your ribbon to the

back of the die in any pattern you like!  

It’s super simple and super Cool!

To give it some stability I then sandwich the ribbon between another 

piece of card stock and adhere it to a card base.

The sentiment is from Verve in the Take Note set!

Any questions at all let me know!

Now head on over to JUGS and show us your Ribbon!

Take care,

Nanc’

 It’s time for a new challenge over at Seize the Birthday!

and our optional topping this time is Mono- Yellow,

which just means your entire card must exude yellow!

I got this cool candle die cut by Elizabeth craft designs about a month ago and

had this card in mind and it was all I could do not to use it before now! 

Love those candles…aren’t they so cool?

The sentiment is from Close to My Heart.

Now please come on over to Seize the Birthday and join us, and

remember the topping is optional and you don’t have to use it

you can link up anything that is a Birthday theme and your good to go!

See you over there!

Photo Week at JUGS!

IMG_0004

Screen Shot 2014-06-17 at 8.23.41 AM

Hi Friends,

Sharyn over at Just Us Girls has this GREAT Summer time photo as inspiration this week!

You wouldn’t believe how many different layers are under some spots on my card,

I couldn’t get this card to come together for whatever reason!

I think it’s the DP I chose.  I wanted to use it because it had fruit on it and

tied in with the photo so perfectly, but I think it was my ultimate demise.

The stamps are a mixture of Stampin Up and Verve.

What do you think of my pin wheels?  

I wanted to make the card mailable and flat.

I am also going to link it up over at Seize the Sketch and

The Pink Elephant where they have a summer theme going on,

at least I got that part right…LOL

Now don’t forget to head on over to Just Us Girls and join us along with

and our Guest Designer this month, Rebekka.

 I hope you will be inspired and want to come and play along.  

If you win Chic of the Week for the month of July, you will be

in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of September.  

See you there and Good Luck!

Just Because…

Hello Friends,

Things have been a little quiet here in blogland due to my BIL passing away unexpectedly.

So, a quick trip to Tennessee and now we are settling in back at home.

My hubby is a trooper and handles things so much better than I.  Love you honey!

It was great to see family, but next time I want it to be for a more happy occasion.

It took me a few days to find my mojo and I finally have something for you that

I am willing to share.  ;)

PLEASE READ to better Explain my Inspiration! :)

The inspiration for my card all started with this great Tag over at

Tag You’re it Challenge!  You may not think by the looks of my card

that that is where it came from but your just going to have to trust me. LOL

I sure don’t expect to win since I really stretched the envelope,

but I sure want to acknowledge this great new and

very cool challenge site that I am really excited about!

Check out this great tag!

TYIC_2

I tried to replicate the transition of colors by scoring my tag and then

inking it up carefully so the scored lines would still show.

Then I heat embossed my leaves to replicate her vellum ones.

My small tags at the top replicate the small tag on Laura’s.

The flowers are from Stampin UP and my sentiment is all Verve!

One of my flowers is also heat embossed on Vellum.

I am also going to enter this over at Curtain Call where they are 

celebrating their 1ST Anniversary with an

Anything Goes challenge along with some fabulous prizes!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by…I so appreciate all your support

in this wonderful hobby of mine!

Take care!

So Sorry You Hurt…

IMG_0002

This card may look very similar to my last card.  I loved the layout and idea so

much and got so much positive feed-back, I thought I would make a similar one.

All stamps used are from Verve Stamps (Leaves, Elegant Flower, and Heartfelt Phrases)

along with some Red mesh ribbon for some added texture.  

The buttons again are from MFT.

The flowers are heat embossed on clear vellum.

I am linking my card up to a few of my favorite Challenges that I stalk on

a regular basis…even if I run out of time to play along.  

There are way to many great stamping sites out there…and not enough time! :)

Wouldn’t you agree?

The Card Concept,

My card today is Clean and Layering…or maybe just a lot of layering. LOL

 Verves Red, White and You challenge!

I decided to use Teal (Bermuda Bay) just like Julee’s beautiful inspiration card.

DIH_July2014

And the Mod Squad where my talented friend Sharyn is hosting

and she asked us to add texture to our project!

That is where my Red Mesh Ribbon comes to play.

 I so appreciate you taking the time out of your day to stop by

my blog and I have the above blogs linked up for you… so what are you

waiting for…go and check them out too!

Enjoy,

Nanc’
