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

Happy Birthday


Hello, It’s Saturday and time for the first challenge of the New Year with Just Us Girls. Lisa K is our hostess and we are excited to be back with you. We have a few changes over at Just Us Girls when it comes to our Challenges, so pop on over and check out what we have in store for you this year. Plus I decided that the graphics needed a bit of an overhaul too.

We also have a new guest this month! It just so happens to be my good friend and teammate from both STB and CH- Jules Peddicord. Welcome, Jules! So very happy you are with us!

Card Details: I needed a quick card as I just don’t have much mojo yet! So I pulled out an old piece of DSP from SU that resists inks. I wish they would bring it back, or any company for that matter. It is so easy and fun to use, all you have to do is pick out which ink you are going to use and rub it on and the pattern on the paper is left behind. The flower dies and petals are also very old and retired from SU. The birthday greeting is a mix of SU and MFT, I do believe. A couple of circles, a white rectangle scrap die on my desk to ground my flowers and greeting, and pearls in the center of the flowers, and I was done.

Take care and I hope you will join us at Just Us Girls! The team did a wonderful job with these colors! Nanc’

  5. This is beautiful! Very cool background with that resist paper and your composition is awesome! I love what you have done with these colors!
    Continued hugs and prayers for you and your family.

  6. I think your mojo is just fine, Nancy. The background flowers make a wonderful garden for the white ones to be planted in/on.

  7. I’m wondering if I still have papers like this. I know I used to when I scrapbooked, never thinking about how wonderful it would be for cards. This is fabulous!!!

  8. I didn’t even know such papers existed…and now that I do, I want some, too! Your card is GORGEOUS! Makes me smile!

  9. That paper you used must be such fun to use. Awesome background. Love the layers and of course ‘that’ flower die I too go to often. Love how you highlighted ‘birth’ in darker tone of blue. A beauty Nancy.

  10. You’re claiming no mojo? This is so pretty! I love how you pulled all the blues together with the white. Lovely card.

  11. The background is so pretty and makes for a lovely card.
