Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!


Casual Friday’s Challenge

Hi friends!  The card I have for you today is for Casual Friday’s Challenge.  Don’t you just sometimes love a clean and simple card?  I have a hard time making CAS cards and then when I am done, I usual like it and think…why don’t I make more of these!  LOL  I sent this to a very dear lady who my family and I have practically adopted!  Hope she likes it!  Thanks for stopping by,  Nancy

So Thoughtful

Aren’t yellow roses just beautiful! I feel very thankful to have wonderful neighbors who were so kind to think of me and send these to me while I was spending Thanksgiving in the hospital. I have never been fortunate enough to get roses that actually open. LOL  Anyways, I know this is not why you stopped by today, but just had to capture these with my camera. An as soon as I re-coop from my 4days in the Hospital (unexpected I might add) I will get back to being crafty!
Enjoy your day no matter where you are!

Oh Baby…

Happy weekend!  My cute little bunny card is for a Casing Challenge over at Stamp Tv. As I tell my students at school when they tell me he or she is copying me, I always tell them you should take it as a compliment because that means they like your work or ideas. This is no exception! Emily has a fabulous gallery to choose from, the toughest part was to figure out which card to case.

My Thanksgiving is off to a great early start, my son is home from college already!
Happy Dance!!!
Thanks for stopping by,


Bridal Shower Card

I enjoyed the challenges I played in over the weekend so much that I decided to enter one more time in the Casual Friday’s challenge. The challenge was to create a Card or project with a Tag on it. I made this card for my hubby’s nephew who is getting married.  I thought the two hearts were a nice touch for a Bridal Shower card.

Hope your having a great week!

I was very excited when I read the details of this challenge over at Stamp TV.  Jennie challenged us to use up our scraps. Well, we all have plenty of those don’t we!!!  Awhile ago, I came across this card over at Pinterest and have been wanting to see if I could do it justice.  If you have never been on Pinterest and you click on my link, I will take full responsibility, cause you will become hooked just like me!!  LOL  You think I am joking….go have a go, you’ll see!  🙂

Thanks for spending a minute of your day with me,

                                                                        This is the card I was casing…isn’t it wonderful!!!

And this is my take on this great idea!!  I just realized my circles are put on differently….oh well!


Casual Fridays and Freshly Made Sketches

I managed to make this card for two different challenges.  I love my new Scalloped Tag Stamp from Verve and that was the challenge for Casual Fridays…to incorporate a Tag (so simple) and the Sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches.  I love starting a card with a sketch!  If you have never participated in either of these challenges, I encourage you to do so!   Have you ever had a piece of paper that you just fell in love with?  Well the DP that you see here is mine and I only have  a small piece of it left!  😦

Have a great Day!
