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



PicMonkey CollageHappy Weekend,  Whoop Woo!!  Today over at Just Us Girls it’s time for our Photo Week and boy do we have a pretty one for you!  Maria has chosen a photo with beautiful tulips for us to get inspired by.  It definitely inspired me as I decided to make 3 cards instead on 1.  I had another good reason to make 3 cards, as it was secretaries week.  I made each one of my fabulous secretaries a card and put a gift certificate inside. I even made an additional 5 more cards for my DH’s secretaries as well. You might see those at a later date.  Here is a large photo of the graphic so you can see the beautiful tulips.  I also need to thank our Guest Designer Kathy over at JUGS for being with us this month, you have been a joy to have on board!  Thanks so much and hope to see you playing along in the future!

 Here are individual shots of each card as well.




The tulip stamp is one of those stamps I picked up at a Stamp Expo and the sentiment is Stampin Up.  I heat embossed the flower with white embossing powder (which is hard to see) and used my watercolored SU brush to add the color to the flower and the grass. Can’t forget to mention my rectangle stitched MFT dies.  I am also linking up to the Thank You challenge over at Showcase Your Style for the first time.  Have a fantastic day! ~Nanc’
