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




Screen Shot 2016-07-09 at 2.58.55 PMHello,  It’s Word Week over at Just Us Girls and the word Sharyn has for us is Water.  I made the above card for a very dear friend and fellow design team member Judy, as it was just her birthday a little over a week ago.  The other girls and I couldn’t believe she was 70.  Age is just a number right?  I hope she loved my card as much as I loved making it for her.  I have to give credit where credit is due. Here is the terrific card I cased.  You can’t tell in my photo but the bubbles, the seahorse, and the fish all are covered in glossy accents. I so wanted to write Birthday Fishes on my sentiments but after 5 attempts with tiny alphabet stamps, it just wasn’t meant to be.  The stamps are a collage of this and that, so if you have any questions just let me know! The seahorse is a die- cut that I sponged, the background is sponges as well and the waves are a MFT die. Oh, and the fish were colored with colored pencils.

Before I go, I would like to welcome Colleen Foelker our Guest Designer to the team!  I have been fortunate enough to meet Colleen in person and she is as sweet as she is talented! Welcome Colleen, we are thrilled to have you joining us this month!

Now, please come on over to Just Us Girls and check out what the rest of the team has been up to this week!  Take care,   Nanc’
