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




Screen Shot 2016-07-09 at 3.16.17 PMHello my friends,  I need to think of a new way to start my posts, as you all must be getting quite bored with the same old same old.  I know I sure am.  Anyhoozal…..My friend and fellow DT member over at Just Us Girls picked out this incredibly beautiful photo for us this week.  Let me just say, WOW what a challenge it was! Still love ya Judy anyways!  I must admit I pondered this one for quite sometime and while doing so kept wishing that I only had a feather stamp amongst my stamp collection, and all my worries would have been over.  So I put my thinking cap back on and went with the butterflies and lots and lots of color.  In my opinion my card is a hot mess…and please don’t say it’s not…when it clearly is! LOL  I ended up stamping my butterflies in black and started coloring them with my Spectra Noir Pens.  Then I had this brilliant, I mean stupid idea to color the background in various colors like the picture. Finally, when I knew I could never recover, I just got out some of my sticker sentiments and flowers ( yes I said stickers) that I have had for ages and finished it off.  Phew…so glad this one is behind me!  KISSES JUDY!!!

Please come on over to Just Us Girls and see where the REAL talent is!  Nanc’
