Screen Shot 2014-09-14 at 12.54.55 PMWe have a lot of things going on over at Just Us Girls this week.  First things first…..It’s World Card Making Day, so everyone get out there today and be creative!  We also have two new designers joining us today over at Just Us Girls and I would like to formally welcome them again!  Welcome Chris and Ina.  Be sure to stop by their blogs and leave them some love, won’t you!  Last, but not least our Guest Designer for the month of October is Wanda Cullen.  Welcome, Wanda!  You can also stop by over at Wanda’s blog and tell her Congrats too! The girls and I over at JUGS are glad your ALL with us today!  What a need to Celebrate! Which is a great segway into our challenge this week…..

It’s Word Week over JUGS and Sharyn has selected the word CELEBRATE…which leaves things wide open.  Great choice Sharyn!  I needed a Congrats on the new baby card for a co-worker and thought that is definitely a cause to Celebrate so that worked out perfectly for me!  Love when that happens!   I have been wanting to make these cute little outfits using my Stampin UP Owl Punch and finally did!  Love how this card came out!.  The trickiest part was making the little straps and buttons.  My ribbon came out kinda flat on the one side of my clothes line, but what you gonna’ do!  The DP is from DCVW Nanna’s Nursery pack.  It’s got some adorable papers in it!  The sentiment is from Gina K Designs. I have some pop dots under the outfits and sentiment to give some dimension.

I am also linking my card up over at the Pink Elephant another one of my favorite challenge blogs where it’s an Anything Goes Week!

TPE - ThemeChallenge2

Well,  That about wraps things up….and I hope you find sometime today to be creative and join us over at JUGS…after all you have permission, it’s World Card Making Day and time to CELEBRATE!!   Take care,  Nanc’

Tall and Skinny….

Hello there friends,

It’s the 5th Saturday of the month so it’s Wild Card Week at Just Us Girls!

Marisa has picked out a great idea for us this time!

Screen Shot 2014-03-27 at 8.56.24 AM

My Niece just had a baby and I needed to get a card out to her ASAP so

I decided to incorporate my baby card into this challenge!

Here is what I did!

IMG_0004

I wanted to personalize the card and use her beautiful name Amelia on it!

Also, I adore this elephant stamp from Verve so I had to use him as well.

The Sentiment and the dotted label is from Stamp TV!

If you have any other questions let me know!

Now don’t forget…..

The rest of the JUGS team has some wonderful samples to get your inspiration going,

so just hop on over to the Just Us Girls blog, and check out what the Design Team has created.

  Then put your creative genes to work and add your card/project to the challenge post

on the JUGS blog for the chance to be selected as Chic of the Week and then possibly

after that a Guest Designer with us!

Hope to see you there! 

Oh, and Thanks to our GD Calypso for being with us this month…you were awesome!

JUGS Color Challenge and a Birthday Shout Out!

Jugs Challenge and A Special Happy Birthday

Good Day Crafty Friends!

This week’s Color Challenge over at JUGS is

hosted by the talented Marisa.

She has picked out a great color palette for us to work with!

It seems like when Spring rolls around I am always in need of Baby Shower gifts.

Most of the time I like to give my expectant mothers a gift card,

so that they may purchase what they want and

the dad can be a part of picking out something for his new baby as well.

Don’t you think those poor dads get left out sometimes?

So that is how this Gift-card holder came to be.

It is on it’s way to Michigan for my nephew’s wife’s baby shower!

I left out the Walmart Gift-card itself for the photo because it

was blue and didn’t match my card.

I couldn’t believe they had no pink gift cards!

Here is a peek at the inside of the card.

My Birthday Shout Out goes to a fellow JUGS  Design Team member Lisa!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY LISA!!!

Hope it’s one of the best one’s ever!!!

Here is a card I made in honor of your birthday!

IMG_0022

This card really needs no explanation….the sentiment is from Close to My Heart and the balloons were

made using either a circle punch or my Creative Memories circle cutter… adhered with some pop dots!

They look like they are floating…don’t they?

So…..

The rest of the JUGS team has some wonderful samples to get your inspiration going,

so just hop on over to the Just Us Girls blog, and check out what the Design Team has created.

CAS(E) this Sketch

Happy Monday friends,

The card I have for you today is for the CAS sketch challenge over at CAS(E) this Sketch.  I am becoming a huge fan of the site!  However, my card started off pretty clean and simple, but I may have gotten carried away when I added the flowers and bling.  When I finish a card I always stare at it for a minute or two and make sure it’s balanced.  Either my hubby taught me this or I learned it back in my Art classes in middle school. On your work or finished product….Your eye should bounce from corner to corner to make a triangle and then the “Art Piece” so to speak has balance.  Well this one didn’t meet that criteria so that’s when I added the flowers and bling.  So if it is not CAS enough for you all over at CAS(E) I understand completely !!!!!  Don’t judge me on my coloring either…I did this baby stroller about a year ago with my prisma colored pencils and I think my coloring has improved since then.  Also, a dear friend of mine gave me some Spectrum Noir pens this past weekend and I am so excited to learn how to use them!!!   I have been checking out videos and tutorials on the web and I think I am almost ready to take the plunge.  So the next thing I post on here that has an image on it …. will hopefully be colored with my Noir pens!  I can’t thank her enough for her generosity!  Not only did she give me a mess load of pens…she also gave me some other goodies….like these Prima sentiment stamps I used on this card!  Love them and her!

Here is my card~ Be kind! 🙂

Tuesday Morning Sketches and Monogram Challenge

I have a new card for you today and a brand new blog I stumbled upon with a great sketch challenge!  The new blog is called Tuesday Morning and I am happy to have found them as I was blog surfing!  There is so much talent on the web and I love seeing what I can stumble across!  I hope to play with them again!  Also, this Baby card is the last monogram card I made for my challenge over at Stamp TV.  I absolutely love the way this card came together.  I made it for my co-worker and it just so happens that I gave it to her today!  She loved it!

Have a great day my friends,

Oh Baby…

Happy weekend!  My cute little bunny card is for a Casing Challenge over at Stamp Tv. As I tell my students at school when they tell me he or she is copying me, I always tell them you should take it as a compliment because that means they like your work or ideas. This is no exception! Emily has a fabulous gallery to choose from, the toughest part was to figure out which card to case.

My Thanksgiving is off to a great early start, my son is home from college already!
Happy Dance!!!
Thanks for stopping by,
