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

Just Us Girls Photo Week!



I had to darken the photos so you could see the ribbon.


Hopefully these ornaments mimic the lights in the photo and or the look I was going for was a Baby mobile.

Screen Shot 2014-11-11 at 4.30.44 PMHello Everyone,  I have the honor of hosting the Last Challenge of 2014 over at Just Us Girls! Can you believe that we are approaching the end of another year? Where does the time go!  It’s unbelievable isn’t it? I hope you had a wonderful Christmas…I sure did!  It went by way to fast though, but I got some really nice gifts this year from my family and am truly blessed!  Then Christmas night my father fell while walking his dog and thankfully I think he is going to be okay. He is so lucky!  He refused to go to the Hospital and be checked out when the ambulance arrived.  He has one terrible goose egg on his head.  (I do realize a head injury is nothing to mess with, however you don’t know my father) He doesn’t have a concussion and seems to be just as alert and attuned with us as before. My family and I took shifts and were waking him every two hours Christmas night. Prayers welcomed!

Since we have been in Christmas card mode for so long I thought it would be fun to lighten things up with a fun photo this week! I can’t wait to see what inspiration you take from this cute photo!  Will you be drawn to a baby theme like my fellow DT member Vicki and I were or something totally different like the rest of the Design team did?  The ladies did an amazing job!  I would also like to say thanks and Farewell to our Guest Designer Lee Ann Barrett!  We so enjoyed having you with us Lee Ann! Please keep in touch and play along again with us when you can …you are very talented!

Here are a few but not all card details: I used the Verve Christmas Stamp Set Have a Holly Jolly Christmas to create my heat embossed mobile ( from the photo) I hope they don’t look entirely like ornaments. The cute little elephant is also Verve and his name is Emery.  The sentiment banners are also Verve and is from the set So Happy.  The Dots embossing folder is Stampin Up and it’s my first time using it!  LOVE it!!  If you have any other Questions at all please ask away!  I have the Verve site linked up for you!  Now please won’t you come on over to Just Us Girls and join us in our Last Challenge of the yea?  Hope to see you there!   Nanc’
