Have a Sandsational….

Hello friends, Happy Saturday to you and yours!  Over at Just Us Girls this week it’s word week and boy do we have an easy one for you!  The word is Twine!  I told you it was simple, and any color will do fine!  Today’s card was made with some new products I purchased quite a while ago, but was waiting for the perfect time to use them, and this was the week.  Do you do that? Hold off using a new item till you have the perfect idea?  Or am I just weird?  Don’t answer that!  The stamp and sentiment is from….I have no idea..sorry.  There is not indication anywhere on the stamps. 😦  The sun die cut is from Lawn Fawn. I didn’t put ink on the word day at the end of the sentiment on the card above, as I want to make this card a retirement card for a dear co-worker. On the above card I used watercolors to color my images. The sun is made out of textured handmade paper that I got from DCVW.


  The second card was colored with colored pencil.  Finally the last one was colored with Spectra Noir pens.  I know I kind of got carried away and made 3!  LOL I decided I liked using the watercolors the best for this image. The last card was not intended to be tilted however when I cut out my square opening it came out kinda of crooked so I decided the entire card was going to be wonky. Excuse my hand, but I wanted to photograph the card shut so that you could see that the sentiment is on the inside of the card.  The glitter I know doesn’t look like glitter, but I promise that is what the bottle says, I think it’s just that old that it stuck together and looks like sand now..LOL


 Please come on over to Just Us Girls and join us, and while your there please welcome our Guest Designer for the month of May Tenia from Jazzy Paper Designs.  Welcome Tenia!  I am also going to link up my card over at the Pink Elephant!   Until next time….take care! Nanc’

  1. Love your cards, the first one is my favorite! Wonderful stamp, beautifully colored and I love your “sand”! Sometimes if there is even just a manufacturer’s number on a stamp you can track it down by Googling….beach scene #1234…..ya know? Love the cards!

  2. Perfect summer card designs and love the beach scene and how you colored it.

  3. Love all your cards. The first one is my favorite also. I like how you left the word day off the sentiment. The “sand” looks great. I like the sun from the textured paper also. I think I remember that paper. (wink)

    • Hey Nancy,
      I just noticed your lovely card is not on the JUGS post for the twine challenge.
      Hugs, JoAnn
