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



Hello, I am back today with the next challenge at Just Us Girls. Elizabeth is our hostess for Photo/Moodboard Week. She has picked a wonderful array of photos that are sure to inspire. They certainly inspired me. I was immediately drawn to the lemons in the photo and knew I had just the paper and supplies to pull it all together.

Card Details: I made my own ice cubes out of Vellum, Nuvo drops, and a bit of glitter. The large Stamp set is from MFT the word Sweet is from Jilly Bean Soup, I do belive. I heat-embossed the lemons in white on yellow paper. The glass and lemon dies are from Tim Holtz/Sizzix. I used a Hero Arts Postage Die. The lemon paper in the background is packaging left over from some Lemony cocktails I purchased eons ago. I saved it for just this very reason. I have some dimensionals for depth.

Now head on over to Just Us Girls and check out how the team and our guest-Michele were inspired and then we hope you will play along! Nanc’
