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



Hello,  We have a great color challenge for you this week at Just Us Girls.  It might be snowing and gloomy in your neck of the woods, or it may be sunny and cool like it is here. No matter what your weather happens to be, we thought we would brighten things up with some Pastel colors this week. Most of the supplies I used for this card are from Verve, except the SU-stitched circle and the MFT-scalloped rectangles.  I also did some emboss resist once again.

I sure hope you come by and join us! Take care, Nanc’
