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

A True Friend…


Hello,  It’s that time again!  We have a Photo Challenge for you starting over at Just Us Girls. I had a lot of fun with this challenge.  I first used one of my favorite stencils to make a background with my Oxide Inks.  Then I decided to do a little emboss resist to mimic the new growth peering through the snow in the photo. Last, I got out my stitched flowers from MFT and sponged them with some of the same colors from the background. The sentiment is from Close to My Heart.   The entire sentiment will read…..A true friend remembers your birthday …..but not your age.

Before I go I need to say thanks to Tenia for being such a fabulous Guest with us this month!

Hope to see you in the JUGS gallery this week! Nanc’
