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




Screen Shot 2018-08-11 at 10.22.49 AMHello,  I am hosting this week at Just Us Girls and it’s Word Week and today happens to be World Card Making day! I hope you find sometime to be creative.   I don’t know about you, but I am getting to that age where I am in constant need of  Sympathy cards and that is why I chose this word for our challenge.  I would also like to give a quick shout out to our new guest this month over at JUGS.  Please help me in welcoming Linda Snodgrass from Lin’s Craft Corner for the month of October!  Linda and I have had the opportunity to meet on two separate occasions, and I am happy to call her my blogging and card making friend. I hope you will go by her blog and leave her some love.

I hope you join us this week at JUGS too!  Nanc’

Card Details:  SU stamps and dies and watercoloring.

  1. Your rose is so very beautiful on your sympathy card.

  2. Yes, it is 2;30 am an I am up and in need of a sympathy card too. Your rose is simply gorgeous and I am going to save this for future use. Seems like I can’t keep any on supply.

  3. Gorgeous sympathy card, Nancy. I tend to shy away from making these types of cards because I never feel I get it ‘right’, be that my selection of images, or palette or sentiment. This was a challenge for me, but glad I stayed the course, realizing that it’s not so much about ‘the card’ but the compassion and love that goes into creating it…

  4. This is so beautiful! I love your rose and the whole layout – perfect for a sympathy card!!!

  5. Beautiful sympathy card and the rose is so pretty. Hope you have a great weekend.

  6. Beautiful card, Nancy and I think it is the number one card I make and sell! I will have to play along because I am always in need of those cards, sadly! Hope you are getting some pain relief! Have a good weekend!

  7. This is so dainty and lovely….absolutely beautiful! I’m sorry you have a need for this. I try to keep them on hand too.

  8. Beautiful Sympathy Card Nancy and I love that SU stamp set you used. Such lovely soft colours – perfect.

  9. Nancy, your rose is so soft and pretty. Beautiful sympathy card. Thanks for having me as your GD this month.

  10. What an absolutely gorgeous rose, Nancy. I love the little slip of pink scallop showing down the side.

  11. Beautiful soft colored rose. Great side border too.

  12. Nancy, this is absolutely perfect! That beautiful rose and clean design are so soothing and will sure to be a comfort when needed. Great word choice for our challenge.

  13. That is such a gorgeous sympathy card Nancy, I’m sure whoever gets it will be so touched and appeased by the soft colours you chose. I also love your photo backdrop! Cheers, Gwendolyn

  14. Beautiful watercoloring! I love how soft the colors are in your flower and leaves. Great challenge this week! Certainly cards we all need but dislike making.
