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



Hi I am writing this post on my phone with very little cell service or battery because of Hurricane Ian so I’m going to get right to it! Thankfully we are safe and our house is in tact! The neighborhood looks awful but all can be fixed and or cleaned up. My prayers go out to southern Florida! I haven’t been able to see much footage but I heard it was horrendous and can only imagine as it wasn’t easy here in Bradenton. I feel extremely lucky and thankful that’s for sure!

It’s Word Week at Just Us Girls and the word is Scraps! I’ve had these scraps in my stash forever and am so glad I could finally put them to use! This card was made weeks ago, but I hadn’t gotten to the post before Ian came along!

Come by JUGS and join us! Take care, Nanc’
