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



Hello,  I back from Vacation and I am happy to be hosting this week at Just Us Girls. I have this beautiful floral picture to the left for your inspiration!  It’s also our last week for our Guest Julia.  Thanks for being with us Julia!  Your cards have been really wonderful and it’s been a joy having you with us!

This card was made with all different brands…. MFT, SU, Gina K, and Spellbinders. If you have any questions…let me know.

Before I go I would like to add a few pics of my travels out west this summer.  I was so very fortunate to meet up with two blogging friends once again.  Hubby and I were blessed to stay with my good friend and (fellow STB DT member ) Colleen and her husband Scott out in Oregon. They were such gracious hosts and we enjoyed our time with them immensely!!! I felt as if I was staying at a five star bed and breakfast.

After that, I also spent the entire day with another blogging friend that I have met once before, thanks to Colleen, her name is Linda!  She lives on the outskirts of Seattle and also has such a beautiful home!! The guys dropped me off at her place while they spent the day golfing. We went shopping at Impress, had a fabulous lunch, and talked for hours in her beautiful home. It was so comfortable, it was as if we had been friends for life!

Let me just say, that this community of stampers has really brought so much joy to my life. I am so thankful for these two ladies and many others that I have met, and hope to meet many more in the years to come!  Heart Hugs, Nanc’
