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




screen-shot-2016-09-16-at-4-12-30-pmHello Friends,  Happy Weekend!  Oh this week was dreadfully long, glad it’s come to an end. It’s WILD Card Week at Just Us Girls and what Maria has asked us to do is to make the sentiment the focal part of your card.  I got this fabulous idea while pursuing Pinterest sometime ago, and you will find that card HERE!  This card came together rather quickly and that is always a plus too, when you are pushed for time.  The only actual stamping that is on this card is the musical notes (Michaels) and the holly leaves are from Verve.  Those were colored with colored pencil and then I punched out some little berries from red sparkly SU paper. The letters were cut out with a Sizzix die and ran through a Lattice EF. Lots of pop dots were added for dimension.

Before I go I need to say farewell and Thanks to our fabulous Guest Jaydee.  It’s been an absolute joy having you with us this entire month, and we look forward to having you back in the gallery again really soon!

Take care everyone and happy stamping,  Nanc’
