Wishing You…

 

Hello,  I had some time to play along with The Flower Challenge today, and what they asked us to do this time around is pick one of their previous challenges to play along with.  I have chosen Challenge #10- Heat/Dry Embossing. The stamp set I have used is from Altenew, and decided to pair that with some watercoloring.  The sentiment is from Verve.

I am also on Day 12 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Color Challenge. I can’t believe I have made it this far!  I have really enjoyed doing some type of coloring everyday! It’s been fun, and relaxing too!

Hope you are finding some time to be creative, Nanc’

Bring on Fall!

screen-shot-2016-08-12-at-6-25-13-pmHello Friends,  Don’t know about you, but I am ready for some cooler temps!  The heat is intense and I don’t ever remember it bothering me as much as it is has this year.  So I am hoping today’s Inspiration Photo over at Just Us Girls will help persuade fall to show it’s face in Florida.  Wishful thinking I know, but a girl has gotta try.  This card was put together with a little bit of stamps from here and there.  The pumpkin is something I picked up at Michaels, the little leaves and sentiment are from MFT (a PI set called Thankful Friend), and the large leaves are from Altenew’s Beautiful Day set.  Of course I had to use my favorite MFT stitched rectangles too!

I would also like to say thank you to Kathy Schweinfurth for being such an awesome Guest Designer with us this month!  You are truly very talented Kathy and hope to see more of your work in our gallery soon.

ModSquadLogoI am also linking my card up to the Mod Squad challenge where they have asked us to use splats (big or little) on our project.  I love doing the splatter technique…it adds so much to a card with so little effort!

Hope you will consider joining us at JUGS this week.  Take care,  Nanc’

Soft and Simple @ STB

STB ToppingsHello Friends, It’s once again time for a new challenge over at Seize the Birthday!  The topping this time around is Soft and Simple!  Easy huh? I decided to get back out my new Altenew Stamp Set Beautiful Day and get to work. The sentiment however is not from this set, and for the life of me I can’t remember where it’s from.  That’s clearly a sign that I own way to many stamp sets and shouldn’t clean up so quickly after a card is complete!  Before I go, one of my good friends and fellow Design Team members Sharyn is needing to leave STB after this challenge and I want to take a minute to tell her that she will be extremely missed!  Your beautiful cards and friendship mean the world to me Sharyn and I want you to know you will always have a place at STB, if you choose to return! Be well my friend!  I also would like to thank Monika Reeck for being such an AWESOME Surprise Party Guest these past two months and we hope to see you in the gallery from time to time in the near future.

Speaking of gallery, head on over to STB and check out my amazing teams work and while your there…join us!  Nanc’

Hello friends,  Today is a fun day for my fabulous Design Team and I over at Seize the Birthday, we are one of the many guests taking part in The Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop with Altenew!  We are absolutely thrilled that they contacted us to join them! Did I mention they have prizes too?  You have got to see the LONG list of Challenge Blogs joining the hop!  It’s incredible!!!

Before I go, my card was made with the Altenew stamp set called Botanical Garden.  I colored the rose buds with my Spectrum Noir pens and used some additional shading with some Prisma Colored Pencils. The sentiment is heat embossed and the black and white background was made with the same rose bud stamp. I added a little bit of white dots for some added interest.  Now, head on over to Seize the Birthday and check out what some of my team-mates have done…their cards are Sensational !!!!  Hope to see you in the gallery too! Nanc’
