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

Beautiful You


Hello, I had to take a shortcut this week for The Paper Players and make a really quick and easy card for Joanne’s Color Challenge! My dad is needing quite a bit of extra care these days, and that is okay, as this is just a hobby and he means the world to me. Rest assured, the design team is sure to inspire you better than I have this week! The Poppy Bloom stencil from Altenew and Oxide Inks never fail me when I am pushed for time! The greeting is from Verve! Isn’t that font beautiful?

I hope you will join us! The talented Design Team is linked up for you below! Take care, Nanc’

  1. Nothing wrong with a CAS card every once in a while. As a matter of fact, this is quite beautiful and I love the soft colors. That font is to die for and is perfect with your design.

  2. I agree with Barbara Nancy – we all need clean and simple cards that are quick to create and honestly this stencil was made for this week’s colours – they blend so beautifully! Your scripted sentiment is the perfect finishing touch – I love it!

  3. Well, for your quick card, it certainly stands out with bold beauty! Just gorgeous, and I am sure taking caring of your dad, although it is a challenge, is a blessing to him!

    • Thanks Claire he is 90 and yelled at me all day today but must of the time he’s a sweetheart. Dementia isn’t fun but I do cherish my time with him. Hugs!!

    • You are so sweet Ann! He’s 90 so at times it’s really hard. He’s the reason I retired early as to take care of him the best I can. Hugs!!
