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

Warm Wishes and Sunny Smiles


Hello, How did it get to be Saturday already? That was a very fast week! It is time for Color Week at Just Us Girls and I am your hostess. As I was selecting my colors for this challenge, I wanted to make sure that our players and I could have a choice to embrace the end of summer or jump right into fall. I hope these colors appeal to everyone this week and you cone play along.

Card Details: I don’t often make one layer cards. The background was made with a stencil I made with a piece of acetate and some rectangle die cuts. I used Oxide Inks for my blending. The greeting is from MFT, the birds are from SU, and the palm tree landscape is from Impression Obsession.

This card was inspired by Michelle from the Card Grotto and you can find it HERE!

Come by Just Us Girls and join us! The lovely and talented Loll is still with us too!

Take care and I hope you find some time to be creative, Nanc’
