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



Hello,  Seems like forever since I posted last as the last few weeks were pre-scheduled posts.  This is me coming at you LIVE…LOL.  I am back from my second trip, this one was to California to visit my son and daughter in law.  They spoiled Dave and I rotten and we got to see quite a lot. I am still reeling from all the fun we had and saying goodbye is always the tough part.  I always cry quite a lot on the plane ride home (lack of sleep doesn’t help) and then for a few days off and on, but now that I am back to work, back to a routine, I have sucked it up and I am good to go. LOL. Until next time anyway.

Today’s card is for Just Us Girls and the word is Houses.  It just so happens that I needed a Congrats on your new home card for my nephew, so the timing was perfect. Here are a few details….First, I took my Oxide inks and blended my background, next I cut out the house die (from Taylored Expressions), sun and clouds( from Lawn Fawn) and the rectangle frame and sentiment(from SU.) Put it all together and I was done.

Hope you will come by JUGS and check out what my talented team and our new Guest Christine Perez have done as well.  Welcome Christine, we are very glad to have you with us!

Below are a couple pics from our trip.  Tyler surprised us for our 27th Anniversary and took us to see Hamilton.  It was sensational!!  The ice cream picture was also in San Fran.

Take care, Nanc’
