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


Super Cute…

Hello, It is time for Color Week at Just Us Girls and I couldn’t wait to get started when I saw this great trio of colors selected by Carol. I needed another baby girl card and thought this would be just perfect, for the layout I had in mind. You all know I love polka dots and I thought these papers would be perfect for my baby blankets and cute little dress.

You know if I have lots of die cuts on my card, I will be linking up with the fun over at The Happy Little Stampers Die Challenge-Anything Goes.

Card Details: The greeting is from MFT along with the dress die and hanger. The Sweet stamp is from Jelly Bean. The coaster die that I am calling a baby blanket is from the Greetery. The hearts were a bad after thought! UGH!

Come on over to Just Us Girls and join us…who knows you might be chosen as our next Chic of the Week!

Take care and stay well, Nanc’


Let’s Hear it for the Girls!


Screen Shot 2016-06-07 at 6.21.13 PMHello Friends,  It’s my turn to be your hostess over at Just Us Girls and this week it’s all about us GIRLS!  I have challenged you to make any type of girly card and or project of your choosing!  Simple huh?  I also need to take a minute and give a BIG THANKS to Carol for being such a fabulous Guest Designer this past month!  We loved having you with us and hope to see you in our gallery from time to time!  I can’t take credit for the original idea (of the bib) for this card as I found it HERE on Pinterest. But boy oh boy or should I say girl oh girl I made it my own and it sure was fun and easy to do!  Okay, I couldn’t leave the boys entirely out since I have an only son myself, so here you go!  Some of you may have seen this boy card before!  If so, I apologize.  As for the girl card….The cover plate, and sentiment, and tag are from MFT.  The cute elephant is from Verve. The ruffle is a die from Spellbinders I do believe, and that tiny bow is from Paper Smooches. The Boy card…the paper is SU, the boat is Verve and the rest is the same.



Now come on over to Just Us Girls and join me as we pay tribute to the GIRLS!  Nanc’


STB Twins for a topping!

Baby Card

Happy Friday!

I made this card for a fellow-coworker and friend at my job who just found out recently she is having a Baby Girl. The digi image I accidently came across as a fund raiser for a fellow stamper who had just lost her 3 year old son. The story touched my heart,so I downloaded the image to help the family pay for a Memorial Tree for young Henry.  Here is the link if you would like to have this adorable image!
I can’t imagine losing my son at all, much less at such a young age! My heart goes out to the entire family!
Anyways, have a wonderful weekend and thanks for looking,
