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

More Christmas!



screen-shot-2016-10-09-at-12-51-14-pmHello Friends,  It’s time for a new challenge at Just Us Girls! Vicki has picked the perfect Inspiration photo to help us get going on our Christmas cards!  I challenged myself to make 4 cards a month this year with a finished date of December 1st, and I’m sure I am going to make it, I only need one more!  Yaaaaahoooooooooo! I encourage you to do this next year, you’ll be glad you did! I sure am!  I seem to be on a roll with my Verve Christmas Stamps and you haven’t even seen all of them yet.  I am saving my four favorite cards that I have made this year for last.  I can say that this is one of my favs as well!  The photo doesn’t really do it justice…it’s much more sparkly in person!  I primarily used watercolors on this card with a Paper Smooches bow with the negative left in…I think it looks cool like that.  I finished it off with some Wink-a-Stella, some Stickles and two types of ribbon.  You can’t tell in the photo, but I raised the sentiment to give the bulb some depth.

Hope you have a fabulous day and find some time to join us at JUGS!   I also want to say Thanks to Cecile for being such a terrific Guest this month!  Nanc’
