CAS Watercolour Challenge!

Hello Friends,  I have been eyeing this Challenge over at CAS Watercolour, and was delighted when I had sometime to play yesterday, that the challenge was still open! Yeah me! So I went straight to work and this is what I came up with.  I know I could have given the flowers a little more depth of color, but I was so afraid I would ruin it, that I decided to leave it be.  This card took me no time at all to create.  When you use heat embossing it sure makes it a breeze. I decided that it might be kinda fun to poke holes in the watercolor paper and tie a tag to the bouquet so to speak.  I think the tag came out perfectly. This stamp set is from Stampendous and is called Bouquet for You! I actually used only one stamp set and didn’t mix and match this time. It’s a rarity for sure!

I sure hope you have a wonderful day, and thanks for dropping by! Nanc’

Color Week @ JUGS!

Hello Friends, Over at Just Us Girls Ina has a great color combo for us, and you for that matter!  She has selected Pink, Peach and Lemon.  By golly, if those colors don’t scream Spring and Easter, nothin’ does!  Of course, I didn’t go the Easter route, I went Spring and Birthday!  I have been stuck in a pattern lately of using strips of colors on my cards. I am really happy with this layout, in fact I made 4 additional ones in all different color combos. However, I am saving those just in case I need them down the road for another DT challenge.  Sometimes you have to have backups in your arsenal. You know what I mean?  The butterfly die is from Savvy, and the sentiment is my go to from Verve! This card was not my own and a case of this beautiful card Here!

Hope you will make your way over to Just Us Girls for this challenge!  Have a blessed Easter too! Hugs, Nanc’

Praying for you my friend….

Hello,  I have a super quick post for you today!  I saw this GREAT color combo over at Just Add Ink and wanted to see if I could put something together for a dear co-worker that is having a terrible time. I let my fingers do the walking through Pinterest and decided to come up with something similar to Kay Miller’s card below…isn’t it gorgeous?  Not overly happy with my pink flowers, as I started off watercoloring them and then decided to go over it with prisma colored pencil. It will have to do! The flowers and leaves are from Altenew and the sentiment is Verve.  Have a wonderful day! Nanc’

Pink, Purple and Grey

Hello Friends,  It’s Color Week over at Just Us Girls and I am in love with this color combo that Lisa has chosen. I decided to CASE myself this week and make a card that is similar to a couple I had done years ago.  I have a very large variety of products here, so if you have any questions let me know.  Hubby and I are off to Naples for the weekend. He is going to go golfing and I am going to spend the day with my birthday sister. I am so looking forward to it!  Going to make this short and sweet, as I need to go and pack.  Happy Creating….and I hope to see you at JUGS!  Nanc’

I have linked up a Jennifer McGuire Video for you HERE!  

This butterfly and embossing folder is from Stampin Up and the small Thanks die is from Savvy Dies.

Have a wonderful day,  and hope to see you over at JUGS! Nanc’

screen-shot-2016-11-20-at-7-40-59-pmHello Friends, Over at Just Us Girls we have a Color Challenge starting.  The colors are Pink, Gray and Blue.  I know you are probably thinking…not those stitched flower dies from MFT again…LOL  What can I say, they are a tad addictive!  I promise to break out some of my other goodies from MFT again very soon!  The thanks die is from Savvy and the scalloped rectangles are also MFT.

Come on over to JUGS sometime this week and join us…we would love to have you!  Who knows, you may even be picked as our Chic of the Week! Take care, Nanc’

MFT Color Challenge 61

 

dsc_0007

mft_colorchallenge_paintbook_61Hello Friends,  I am having such a great time playing with my new Stitched Flowers from MFT.  I know I made a great choice in this purchase!  Do you ever buy something (and really thought you had to have it) and use it once or twice and then you’re kinda like…over it? LOL  It seems to happen to me more than I care to admit!  I think I will have to purge my supplies very soon! ( maybe a blog giveaway)  Anyhoo, as soon as I saw the fabulous colors over at My Favorite Things this week, I knew I wanted to play along!   My papers and enamel dots are from SU and everything else is MFT, except for the tiny hearts.

Thanks so much for all your visits as of late…they mean the world to me! HUGS! Nanc’

screen-shot-2016-11-12-at-1-44-57-pmHello Friends,  It feels like forever since I last posted.  It’s only been a week, but what a week it was!  I can’t believe school isn’t out till the 22nd this year. Grrrrr. I pray that I can make it till then.  I am so not ready for Christmas, but are we ever really ready? What gets done gets done, thats my motto!  At least it makes me feel better… temporarily. LOL Okay, onto today’s card.  It’s Color Week over at Just Us Girls and I hope Lisa will forgive me as I didn’t quite follow the orchid color, but I am still in the same color family. I got some new MFT goodies in the mail this week ( Merry Christmas to me) and I was itching to open them up and have a go. However, the sentiment die is from Verve and the YOU is from SU.  The rest is MFT.  I added some sparkle to my flowers and they didn’t photograph well.  Sorry about that!

Hope to see you in the gallery at JUGS and Merry Christmas.  I hope to post before then….but you never know! Nanc’

Love These Colors!

screen-shot-2016-10-01-at-7-51-58-pmHello Friends, Happy Weekend and Happy Vacation to me!  Boy do I LOVE having a week off for Thanksgiving, plus Tyler and Sandra will be here on Tuesday.  Can you hear me smiling from ear to ear!  This is the longest hubby and I have ever gone from seeing Tyler and I sure can feel it! It’s been about 18 weeks.  That may not seem long to you…but it feel’s like an eternity to me! Tyler is feeling it too!  We have lots and lots to do to get the house ready along with Thanksgiving too, so I am going to get right to it!  Ina has a great Color Challenge for us over at Just Us Girls this week! Before you say, “Hey Nancy where is your gold?” Look very, very closely at the center of my flowers! I used GOLD Stickles. LOL  I kinda feel like I cheated on a test…But it is there..I promise!! LOL I Loved the Teal and Purple so much…I made two more cards! I only need two more Christmas Cards and I am finished with my quota!  It looks like I am going to make my deadline of December 1st! Woohooooo!

flowerchallengaspecialocassionI am also going to link the above card up over at a new challenge site called The Flower Challenge (which was started by the talented Aileen Ryan) where the challenge is a Special Occasion!  I wish them the best of luck…I think they are going to be very successful!

Card Details: The Stamps are from Verve, except the Happy Birthday is from SU.  The snowflakes peeking out from under the Pointsettias is a Martha Stewart Punch. I used my Prisma Colored pencils to color with.

I sure appreciate you stopping by today!  I hope you have a fabulous Thanksgiving, just in case I don’t post anything else before then! Hugs, Nanc’

Fall Colors @ JUGS!

dsc_0285

screen-shot-2016-09-01-at-3-32-19-pmHello Friends,  It seems like forever since I have posted anything, but it’s only been a week! Judy is our hostess this week at Just Us Girls and she has picked out some terrific Fall colors for us to play around with. I am not a big Halloween kinda gal, but always like to send out at least a few cards to my immediate family.  I was thinking about this post this week, and realized I better get a move on since it’s already the middle of the month.  Once I made myself a candy corn template out of cardboard the card came together rather quickly. The sentiment is from Stampin Up. The papers are just random scraps of this and that, since I clearly don’t throw any paper away no matter how small. LOL The buttons I adore and they are dies from MFT. I know I stretched the colors a bit with my orange ribbon, but I just had to! Orange is in the same color family as rust, so I should be good! Hope you will stop on over sometime this week and check out the teams cards and join us!

challenge-215I am also linking my card up over at Addicted to Stamps and More where they have a Halloween inspired photo!  I thought my circles all over my card mimicked many moons, and I have a lot of black on my card as well, as does the photo. Take care, Nanc’
