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

JUGS is Back!


Hello friends, Just Us Girls is back from our nice long break and are ready to get back to it!  Vicki is our hostess this week and she has started the year off with a terrific challenge.  It’s Anything Goes this week, so I sure hope you will consider joining us!  While you are over at JUGS, I sure hope you will take a minute and help us welcome our Newest Design Team member!  She is so well known in the card making world that I was over the top excited to find out she was joining us! Carol Mayne from Just Me:c!  Yes I know!  Can you believe it? Now you know why I was so excited! Welcome Carol!! Can’t wait to work along side you!

We also have a new Guest Designer with us this month that I would very much like to Welcome! Cathy McCauley [cathymac].

Now a little bit about my card! If you stop by my blog regularly you know I don’t often make one layer cards.  However, I did enjoy putting this one together.  I had to be very patient as it started off kinda terrible and I just kept working with it, and it began to grow on me. It was made with two Altenew sets; Beautiful Day and Botanical Garden. It is done with watercolors after I heat embossed the flowers and stems with white EP. Next, I splattered it with the same tones of colors from the flowers and finally dotted with some Nuvo drops. Don’t examine it to closely as it has some major faux pas’.  LOL

Before I go I am linking my card up over at Stamp Ink, Paper where they have asked us to use Embossing of any kind.

Hope to see you at JUGS! Nanc’

  4. Oh my, Nancy – I’m blushing at your sweet introduction and welcome! Thank you ever so much; you’ve certainly made my heart smile! And speaking of smiling: your card! WOW! Such pretty blooms that, with your embossing and water-colouring, are elevated to GORGEOUS! A lovely card guaranteed to brighten the day of the lucky person receiving it; you’ve certainly brightened mine! So thrilled to be joining you and the rest of the team: THANK YOU for welcoming me on board!

  5. Sometimes our cards just evolve, Nancy, and when they’re done they are works of heart. This one ended up with a softly colored background to show off your wonderful flowers. Splatters go a long way to cover any faux pas, as you say. 😉
