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

Sunshiny Day!



STB ToppingsHello my friends,  It’s time for a brand new challenge over at Seize the Birthday and the topping this time around is ” Sunshine.”  Of course what is sun without a little clouds thrown in?  I may have gotten a bit carried away with my clouds…LOL.  I thought it might be fun to change it up and use some DP instead the just plain old white or grey for my clouds.  I like how it came out.  I may have heated my embossing paste a tad to long as it started to bubble, as the picture shows.  I am also linking this card up over at The Paper Players where they have a fun Tic Tac Toe theme this week.  I chose to go diagonal which was …. Yellow, Die-Cut and Paperclip. I wanted a white paperclip but couldn’t seem to get my hands on one around the house, so settled for the traditional silver with a yellow ribbon.  The stencil in from My Favorite Things, the clouds are from Lawn Fawn, and the sentiment is from Verve.

Before I go, I need to mention 3 things! First, I want to welcome Patti from Stationary Styles to the Seize the Birthday team!  She was a Surprise Party Guest with us the past two months and I just couldn’t let her sweet and talented self go!  Welcome Patti and I am super glad you are with us!!!  Next, I need to welcome our NEW Surprise Party Guest- Mynn Kitchen from On a Stampage to our team, she will be with us for the next two months!  Mynn is super involved in the Stampin world and I am sure you are familiar with her beautiful work, if not you are in for a huge treat!!  Welcome Myn!!  Last, but certainly not least!  Hubby and I had the wonderful opportunity this past Sunday to meet up with a fellow STB and JUGS design Team member Sharyn and her hubby for breakfast!  We had a very nice time it was just way to short, as they were taking a family trip that day with their son, daughter-in-law, and grandkids to Orlando!  Here is a couple of pics, that some of you have already seen on Facebook, but I love to document important parts of my life here on my blog as well.



pp297Thanks for sticking with me through my long post!  Come on over to Seize the Birthday and join us, and while your there help us welcome Patti and Mynn!

 Take care, Nanc’

  3. Love the photos of you and Sharyn. Glad she was in Florida for a visit and that you got to meet up. I wish I had been able to meet up with you both. I am getting better and still lugging this old black boot around. Hopefully I will be able to get rid of it Tuesday when I see the doctor.
