Thinking of You


Hello,  Yes another Saturday has rolled around.  Over at Just Us Girls, we have a beautiful photo to remind us that Spring is upon us, even if we aren’t out and about enjoying it as much as we would like to be, it’s still evident.  I do try to make a point to get outside multiple times a day. It may be just to clear my head or get my muscles moving and my eyes away from the screen for a few minutes.  Hubby and I go for long bike rides in the evenings too.

For today’s cards… I decided I wanted to embrace some of my Designer Paper for this project. Yellow seemed to be the color that drew me in in this photo. I paired the paper with one of my favorite die sets by Stampin Up.  The sentiment is from Verve.

Come by Just Us Girls and show us how this photo inspires you!  Before I go I would like to say thank you to our wonderful guest Cornelia.  She has been with us this month and did an amazing job with her cards! Take care, Nanc’

  2. That is an amazing photo to work with and I can see why the yellow drew you in. The fact that you used it with the blue was interesting as it looks like the spring sky and it is also a complementary color. they work well together and with that design paper too.
