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




screen-shot-2016-08-31-at-9-16-24-pmHello Friends,  Sharyn is our hostess this week over at Just Us Girls and she has picked out a perfect word for this time of year.  The word is LEAVES.  Sharyn and I have become very good friends over the past few years, and unfortunately life has gotten to busy for her, and this is going to be her last challenge as part of our Design Team.  I private messaged her a few days ago and asked if she realized her word she had chosen actually had two meanings this week?  She responded, that she had not realized that.  Funny how things work out sometimes isn’t it?  I must say the best thing about this great hobby of ours is the people that have come into our lives…and will stay forever.  I will miss working along side you my friend, but rest assure, you can’t escape me that easy… as I will continue to keep tabs on you! HUGS and best of luck to you!

Now onto my card.  I love the look of stamping two different colors on one stamp…especially these leaves.  I think these colors are awesome together, don’t you?  Then I took a light yellow Spectrum Noir pen and outlined each leaf. (seen below)  The idea for my card came from this gorgeous card by Ashwini that I have linked for you HERE! I added some black splatters and that great (fantastic) Verve Die, stamped the YOU that so happens to be Verve as well, and I was done.  It actually came together rather quickly.  I can assure you I will try this technique again.img_2138  I would also like to welcome our next Guest Designer Jaydee who will be with us this month!

Hope to see you at JUGS! Nanc’
