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

Long and Skinny


Hello,  Have we got a popular and fun challenge for you today over at Just Us Girls! Slimline cards are all the rage lately and I must say I am a fan. I had a great time making my colorful coffee panel and was extremely happy with how it came out. I am not a huge fan of how the rest of the card came together but it’s okay. Hubby said I screwed up with the vertical green banner die. I didn’t tell him I agreed. 😉 Most all of my supplies are from Verve. One of my favorite sets for sure. Even the heart die is Verve. I used the emboss resist technique with Oxide Inks to blend my panel.  Below is the panel before I covered it.

You have to come over to JUGS and join us.  We would love to have you and you may even end up being selected as our Chic of the Week.

Take care, Nanc’
