Word Week- Apple


Screen Shot 2015-08-13 at 10.33.39 PMHello Friends!  It’s a three day weekend for me….BoomYaaaa!  So love working in the school system as we get so much time off!  Definitely a perk that is for sure!  Anyways,  today over at Just Us Girls it’s word week and our word is Apple.  Perfect word for fall, don’t ya think?  This was a little bit of a challenge for me as I have zero fruit stamps,  much less and apple.  So my job came to the rescue again as we have these cute tiny apple die cuts in our resource room.  Second perk of my job…access to so many dies!!  The paper is a Love pack from Recollections and it already had that cute little banner on it.  When I was done with my card and paper piecing my apples together, it just looked blahza.  So I decided to replica my own banner flags over top the existing ones and I think that did the trick!  I am going to send this card to a former-coworker that retired last school year.

Hope you have a terrific two or three day weekend!  Hugs Nanc’


More of the Same, but different!


Hello friends,  I have 3 cards to share with you that go hand and hand with my last JUGS post from last Saturday.  I used the same colors and sketch from Just Us Girls.  The one above doesn’t follow the sketch perfectly, but it was my starting off point, I just got carried away!

Card details: A mix of Gina K design label stamps and Verve sentiments.  The butterflies are Stampin Up.  Any other questions, leave me a message!  Take care, Nanc’
