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

Hello Crafty Friend


Hello, I am back today with the next challenge over at Just Us Girls. It’s Word Week and sweet Lisa E. has the word paintbrush for us to be inspired by. I had this leftover paint stroke panel in my stash that was a perfect starting point for my card. For those of you that don’t know, my hubby is a retired Art Teacher. I through him a huge retirement party three years ago, and as you can imagine it was all done with an ART theme. So I have some leftover pieces from the invitations and decorations still laying around in my stash.

HERE is a link to the post where I have some pics from the Retirement Party, if you are interested!

Card Details: Paper Smooches-I Heart Art, Positive Strokes, and Paint Palette and brush die set. The sentiment on the easel is in the I Heart Art set from Paper Smooches, the sentiment at the bottom of the card is from Altenew-Crafty Friends.

I hope you pop on over to Just Us Girls and check out the Fabulous and creative cards by the DT and our new guest Lucie G. Welcome, Lucie. I love your work and am happy to have you designing alongside us for this month.

I hope you find some time to get creative this weekend! Take care, Nanc’
