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

Happy Summer


This is my second post of the day so if you are looking for Just Us Girls, please scroll down!

For this card, I incorporated the colors from My Favorite Things Color Challenge with the great sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches. As you can see I am still smitten with my new stash from MFT.

Here is another card I made that is just a tiny bit different. I am loving the way the backgrounds turned out and they were so quick to do!

Card Details: Shady Palm dies-MFT, Postage die-Hero Arts, the sentiments are both from MFT-Life’s a Beach and Itty Bitty Summer, I made the scene using some straight edge acetate, torn paper, and some Oxide inks. I splattered the palm leaves with white paint and green ink. The tiny sun on the first card is so old but it’s actually from MFT as well.

Thanks for stopping in and I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Take care, Nanc’
