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

With Sympathy


Hello, It is Saturday and time for the next fun challenge at Just Us Girls. Ina is our hostess and she has chosen a great trio of colors. One of the colors is teal and it’s always one of those shades that can vary in tone. In my photo, it looks a bit too light and I decided with Ina’s approval that I would go with it. So what I am basically saying is as long as your colors are close to the ones we have on the graphic… “Now, Don’t You Fret, Boba Fett!” Any Ted Lasso fans out there? We have watched both seasons 4 times and laugh just as hard with every episode. Love that show!

I am also playing along with the ladies over at The Flower Challenge where the challenge is Occasions.

Card Details: Cone Flower-Honey Bee Stamps, DSP-Pink and Main, White Stems-SU, Scalloped Rectangle-MFT, Greeting-SU, Oxide inks to color my flower.

Come on over to Just Us Girls and join us, who knows, you may become our next Chic of the Week!

Take care and happy creating, Nanc’
