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

Happy New Year!


Hello,  Happy New Year to you all!  I hope your New Year is off to a great start! It’s time for our first post of 2018 over at Seize the Birthday and we are starting the year with our Anything Goes Challenge. Just remember it needs to be a Birthday theme.

I have had this piece of DP in my scraps for so long, and I was determined to find a place on a card for it, and I finally did. I paired it up with some Verve leaf dies and a sentiment, a SU EF and circle die, and some MFT flowers.  Some gold Nuvo drops to top it off.

Before I go I would also like to welcome Kristie Goulet as our Surprise Party Guest over at STB.   I have been a HUGE fan of Kristie’s for the past 8 years and am thrilled to have her guesting with us these next two months.  She is really talented and her blog Kreative Kristie is linked up for you! Please run on over and check it out!

We also have a NEW Design Team Member that I am super excited about at STB! Not only is she a hoot she is talented too! Welcome Lindsey M-P from Bashful Blogging. Please won’t you go by and check out her blog as well! 

Hope to see you around the gallery at STB! Hugs, Nanc’
