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




Screen Shot 2016-04-08 at 11.32.31 AMHello Friends,  In honor of Secretaries day a little over a week ago, I made butterfly boxes to give to all the secretaries at both my hubby’s school and my school to let them know we appreciate them.  My hubby said his secretaries were almost in tears as he was the only one in the entire school that acknowledged them.  How sad is that.  They came out really cute and of course they are filled with chocolate. I knew this butterfly challenge was coming up at Just Us Girls and thought they would be perfect. The box is from Stampin Up and is called the Curvy Keepsake Box and the butterfly die is from Savvy Dies and is punched out of cardstock and decorative vellum as well. The vellum is gorgeous, I wish you could see it. They all have tags on the sides that say for you, but you can’t see them in the photos….I was a tad rushed.  Please come over to Just Us Girls and see what the talented team and our New Guest Designer Aileen has done!  Welcome Aileen!!  While you are over there, consider breaking out those butterflies and joining us this week, we would love to have you!  Take care,  Nanc’  Happy Mother’s Day too!

Here is a pic of the rest of them.
