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

Happy Big Day!



Screen Shot 2015-01-18 at 1.15.39 PMHello Friends,  Today over at Just Us Girls it’s Photo Week!  I had a request for a 60th Anniversary card and I had this idea in my head and thought I could pull it off based on Vicki’s photo she chose.  So, I concentrated on just the gold and not so much the green.  However,  there are green stars on my card I promise…. they were just so hard to capture in the photo.  Each star has a small bling in the center as well.  Can’t say I am in love with this card, but the recipient was! I didn’t have a balloon stamp that size, so I made a stencil with my Martha Stewart balloon punch.  The sentiment is from SU set Chalk Talk and the Chevron embossing folder is SU too.  I framed off my sentiment with a square nestie.  Added some string with a gel pen and included some pop dots.

I sure hope you come by and join us at Just Us Girls.  Remember if your chosen as our Chic of the Week you will be in the running as a possible Guest Designer with us in the future.  Speaking of Guest Designer!  Stephanie has been a fantastic GD with us this month.  Her cards have been really fabulous!  Thanks so much Stephanie, we enjoyed having you with us!   Have a fantastic weekend and see you over at JUGS!  Nanc’

  1. Very pretty! I love how you made your own balloon stencil, they look great. The subtle embossed chevrons pair up beautifully with the balloons with their little stars.

  2. Wonderful card, Nancy, very subtle and beautiful! Love the soft colors with that tiny hint of green.

  3. Isn’t it interesting how sometimes the cards we’re not-so-thrilled-with are absolutely adored by the recipient … I think we can be too hard on ourselves … love the idea of creating a sencil with a punch … such a pretty design … thanks so very much for the opportunity to guest design with Just Us Girls.

  4. That’s a wonderful card design and nothing says “celebration” like a bunch of balloons. This would work for not only birthdays but anniversaries too.
