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



Hello, Hope your weekend is off to a great start! It’s time for a new challenge at Just Us Girls. Angie has asked us this week to use stencils on our card and or project! Easy huh! Who doesn’t have a pile of stencils laying around? The stencil I chose for my card is the heart from Heidi Swapp. This card was made for my Hubster!  He has been very patient with me over the past several months, as I have not been well, and I don’t know what I would do without him. He is a keeper for sure! I do not own this adorable otter from MFT, but when my good friend and fellow STB DT member Barb was down in Florida this past winter, she let me ink up this adorable set and take some images back home with me.  Thanks Barbara!!!  I used my oxide inks for the background, and a mixture of Copic and Prisma Colored pencils for the cute little otter. I am not quite sure how I feel about the clear Nuvo drops…I think I got carried away!

Please come on over to Just Us Girls and join the team and our fabulous guest Patti Kehl this week, who knows you might be chosen as our next Chic of the Week! Happy crafting, Nanc’

We’re about to embark on Day 2 of bike race officiating (and Day 14 of NOT being in my craftroom…eek!), but popping in to let you know that your sweet little otter, tucked into the heart, is beyond adorable! Your husband will adore this, as do I! So sweet; so infused with love! Sounds like your both keepers for one another!
