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



Hello, It’s Saturday once again and time for Word Week at Just Us Girls. The word we have for you that was selected by Sue is Float. Such a fun idea for this time a year for this Florida girl.

I am joining in the fun over at Tic Tac Toe Challenge. My card fits perfectly with the row Child/ Shimmer, shine or Glitter/ embossing. I have the girl, her bathing suit is sparkly, and I used and EF.

Card Details: I started off making my alcohol inked background to replicate water. I couldn’t get my silver to move around very well and looks a bit clumpy, but it was fun to get messy anyway. I colored my MFT PTI Hey Sunshine stamps with Copics and Prisma colored pencils. I decided to leave the sentiment panel blank for now. The dotted EF is from SU, I do believe. I used a stitched edge border die from MFT as well. I paper pieced her bathing suit with some silver glitter paper. I think that about does it.

I hope you will head on over to Just Us Girls and check out what the rest of the team did with our word FLOAT. We also have a brand new guest with us this month! WELCOME Jacinda!

If you decide to play along, and then happen to WIN Chic of the Week, you might just end up becoming our next guest designer.

Take care, Nanc’
