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



Hello, One thing I like about Summer is that I get the chance to play in some of the challenges that I am always admiring,  but rarely get to join in on.  Today I decided to play along with Freshly Made Sketches.  I incorporated that challenge with my 30 Day Coloring Challenge-Day 3.  I am so enjoying making CAS cards these days and this one is just that.  I decided to get out my Copics and do minimal colors on this pretty flower from Verve and I like the way they turned out.  Speaking of Verve, Julee Tilman has decided to close Verve after over a Decade of Heart and Dedication.  I admire this lady more than she knows and instead of me getting all sappy over here and reiterating what she said, I have linked up her goodbye message for you to read. Let’s just say if it wasn’t for Julee, I wouldn’t be stamping or have the friendships I have today. I owe a great deal to her! So over the next month or so, you will be seeing a lot of Verve, as I want to pay tribute to her and her fabulous line of stamping products.  My only regret on this card is that I should have re-stamped the flower  in black as the images lost some of their luster.  However, I probably would have totally screwed it up. LOL

This flower is Verve and from the set called One Person.  The die Smile is from MFT.

Do Something Creative Today, Nanc’

I don’t own a Verve stamp, but I am so happy that you got your start there. Because I am one of the ones that you met through crafting. Thank you Julee.
