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

Calm Seas Ahead…


Hello Friends,  I made this card a few months ago for a stamping and DT friend whose hubby was having some health problems.  I am happy to report he is home now and doing much better, thank goodness. I started off making a watercolored background, then decided I wanted to make a port hole to spy on my ship. I love the look of it! The image, rhinestones, and the circle die is from SU. The rope was really easy to make, you just have to google it. Last but not least, I cheated and made the sentiment on my computer.

I am hostess this week at Just Us Girls…I would love for you to join me! We also have a new Guest with us this month!  Please come on by and help us welcome Laura Unger.   We are so happy to have you with us Laura!   Happy stamping, Nanc’
