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

A Little Thanks



Hello Friends,  Hope your Friday is going well!  I was waiting for the window inspector this morning and thought I would make good use of my time and make a card for a few challenges that have caught my eye this week.  I struggle with CAS cards but am fairly happy with the way this one turned out. It all started with a inspiration photo (using the under the sea portion of the photo) over at a new to me challenge site called The Heart Desires, next a Sketch over at CAS(E) this Sketch, followed by the great colors over at The Verve Blog, and finally the challenge to use Googley Eyes over at AAA cards.  My good friend Barbara gave me these fabulous die-cuts and I finally I came up with an idea to put them to use.  I water-colored and sponged the seahorse which was originally white. The dots and hopefully shell looking type shape behind the seahorse is a piece of vellum run through a SU embossing folder.  My friend Karen did this with a full sheet of acetate, to make an underwater scene, which was incredible, and sparked my interest this morning.  So I have two friends to thank for inspiring me to make this card this morning.  Hope you have a terrific day!  Nanc’
