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

Congrats on your Retirement



As the school year is coming to an end, I have been in the need of a few Retirement cards.  I was blog surfing to my usual challenge sites that I follow, and I came across Stamp Ink Paper’s 100th Challenge.   I knew this was going to be perfect for the card I had in my head.   By the way….Congrats to them and their Design Team for such a milestone!   I grabbed one of my all time favorite butterfly sets from Verve, my favorite color combo of Kraft and shades of Aqua, Pool Party Ink, and one of the best techniques-heat embossing and went to work.  Here are a few more details: The sentiment I chose is from Stampin Up and the leaf die is from Verve as well, plus I can’t make a card these days without my stitched rectangles from MFT. Look at the DP, isn’t it awesome? So basically the entire card was made from some of my favorite supplies!

I hope you are enjoying your weekend however you wish to spend it!  Take care,  Nanc’
