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


Season’s Greetings

Hello, I hope you are doing well and managed to enjoy your Christmas despite the difficult year we have all had. Mine was very nice and I feel very blessed to say the least!! Our son and daughter in law are still here for a few more days. I will be a big pile of mush when they have to leave. Anyhoo, I stumbled upon a Christmas card that I had not yet shared and it was one of my favorites. I was inspired by my friend Linda Snodgrass’s card that she sent me last year. So this is a case of her beautiful work that I have pictured below. Now that I look at it again I realize I failed to add the stars!

I am linking my card up over at The Card Concept where they asked us to post either a favorite holiday card, our Christmas tree, or favorite decoration. As I mentioned above this is one of my favorite cards I made this year.

Card Details: The Santa sled is from Kitchen Sink Stamps, the rest of the stamps are from Stampin Up, and I used Oxide Inks for my blending and some fine glitter for the water sparkle. Instead of using post-it notes for masking, I used transparencies (which is basically acetate), that way I can wash them off and use them again. Much cheaper too!

I will be back on New Year’s Day with another post or maybe sooner!

Take care and stay well, Nanc’

Ribbon and a Button with a SFYTT

Happy Monday,  Is that an oxymoron? LOL  Well Monday is here any way you look at it! 🙂  As my son ALWAYS says…”Everyday is a miracle, and I hate to waste a miracle” isn’t he awesome!!!  I learn from him everyday!  He is such a blessing to me!

Today’s card is for the Ribbon Carousal Blog….Must use a button and a Bow and it’s also for the SFYTT sketch for the month!  If you have never crossed paths with either of these fabulous blogs you are missing out!  I have linked them up for you, so go have yourself a look!

Don’t think you can tell in the photo, but the black paper is embossed with my cuttlebug!

Enjoy your day!

Seeing Stars…..

In more ways than one!  I’ll explain in a minute- This card is from a challenge over at Stamp TV. Gina asked us to create a project that has stars on it somewhere. It can be anywhere you want- in the background, as a focal image or in the photo of a scrapbook page.  This is what I came up with at the last minute before the challenge was over.  I always seem to be either almost late for a challenge or miss it all together!! LOL  Does this happen to you??

The other reason I will be seeing stars tonight (performing stars) is that in a few minutes my family and are are going to see WICKED the musical- at the Tampa Bay Performing Arts.  Tyler and are are really excited and hopefully when it is all said and done my DH will have enjoyed it as well. ( He’s not quite as excited as us) LOL

We have been waiting for this forever!
