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




Screen Shot 2016-06-07 at 6.06.10 PMHello Friends, We are in the middle of Summer for sure here in Florida as the temps creep high into the 90’s and I so wish I had a pool to jump into. So since I don’t have a pool in my backyard, I made this card in hopes to help me cool down a bit! Also, it just so happens that over at Just Us Girls this week our word is Summer!  The girls and our new Guest Designer Carol Mayne (WELCOME CAROL) have done a fantastic job!  This little card came together quite nicely and quick! The waves were made with my CM cutting system that I still adore to this day!  The sun is a die from Lawn Fawn that I added a face to, the penguin is something I have had forever and I colored him with Prisma pencils, the sentiment is from Stampin up and I jazzed it up a bit with some dashes. Please come on over and check us out and while you’re there consider joining us, heck you may even be chosen as our next Chic of the Week.   Take care and happy creating,  Nanc’
