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

Feel Better Soon!


Hello Friends,  It’s Photo Week at Just Us Girls and I only had a bit of time to whip something up for this challenge.  I didn’t have any watermelon stamps or card stock so I decided to base my card on the colors and clouds instead.  I can’t say I love it, but we can’t love them all can we? I wanted a soft background to mimic the sky in the photo and the green is the rind of the watermelon.  I then decided to throw some water on the Oxide inks as well.  I think I got a little heavy with my drops. LOL

Please come on over to Just Us Girls and see what my teammates and guest Aileen have done! We would love to have you!  Nanc’

Supplies: Sun and Clouds-Lawn Fawn, Stitched label-MFT, Sentiment-SU, and Oxide Inks
