Congratulations… on your Retirement

Hello, as you can see I found another nautically inspired challenge site to play along with this week. This card is for Time Out Challenges. I found the perfect DP-by Kaiser Craft to use along with my SU-Nautical stamp set to complete it.  This was so quick, but I like the way it came together.  The card is going to a person that in fact sails, so hopefully he will love it and get a kick out of my sailor’s knot.

Thanks for your visits…they are so appreciated.

Congratulations…

I have another quick post for you today! I have been eyeing the Tic Tac Toe Challenge going on over at The Paper Players which happens to end today! So I will get right to it!  I chose the diagonal of Yellow, Florals, and die-cut.

Card Details: Elizabeth Craft Designs-Daisy die, Background stamp from Stampabilities, both Stitched and Scalloped Rectangles are MFT, and one more piece of that lovely DP from Bo Bunny ( I think)

Have a great day, Nanc’

Houses

Hello,  Seems like forever since I posted last as the last few weeks were pre-scheduled posts.  This is me coming at you LIVE…LOL.  I am back from my second trip, this one was to California to visit my son and daughter in law.  They spoiled Dave and I rotten and we got to see quite a lot. I am still reeling from all the fun we had and saying goodbye is always the tough part.  I always cry quite a lot on the plane ride home (lack of sleep doesn’t help) and then for a few days off and on, but now that I am back to work, back to a routine, I have sucked it up and I am good to go. LOL. Until next time anyway.

Today’s card is for Just Us Girls and the word is Houses.  It just so happens that I needed a Congrats on your new home card for my nephew, so the timing was perfect. Here are a few details….First, I took my Oxide inks and blended my background, next I cut out the house die (from Taylored Expressions), sun and clouds( from Lawn Fawn) and the rectangle frame and sentiment(from SU.) Put it all together and I was done.

Hope you will come by JUGS and check out what my talented team and our new Guest Christine Perez have done as well.  Welcome Christine, we are very glad to have you with us!

Below are a couple pics from our trip.  Tyler surprised us for our 27th Anniversary and took us to see Hamilton.  It was sensational!!  The ice cream picture was also in San Fran.

Take care, Nanc’

Congrats…

 

 

Hello,  Here we are once again with another week gone by! Today’s challenge at Just Us Girls is to use an Embossing Folder.  Easy huh? I paired my embossing folder with this fun puzzle piece heart from SU.  The sentiment is theirs as well.  It was heat embossed.   Isn’t that paper so pretty! It’s Bo Bunny I do believe. A Big Thanks to Greta for being a fabulous Guest this month.

Get out those Embossing Folders and please come and join us! Nanc’

Celestial is the Trend

Hello,  Hope you are having a great day!  If you were in the path of Hurricane Michael, I hope you are safe and with minimal damage. Mother nature isn’t being kind lately and I hope it stops very soon.  It breaks my heart to see the devastation it left behind. Feeling very blessed as I write this post.  Other than some rain and gusty winds, all was well here on the west coast of Florida. I am sending this card to my son ( whom I adore and miss, more than you can even imagine) and I can’t say exactly why I am sending this card, but I hope he doesn’t happen to check my blog before he receives it. You will have to trust me that it looks even better in person.  I had so much fun creating my celestial background with my oxide inks, starting with a piece of white card stock. It was a ton of blending!! The letter dies are from MFT and the “so proud of” is from SU.  That wooden moon stamp is something I have had for eons and is white heat embossed. The stars were heat embossed too and made with a SU stencil as well. Some splatters, and I was done.

Please come on over to Just Us Girls and check out my fabulous teams designs! Nanc’

Wild Card CAS

Hello,  Hope you are having a wonderful day so far!  Angie over at Just Us Girls is our hostess this week and she has asked us to do Clean and Simple for our Wild Card Week. CAS is hard for me, so I needed this challenge.  I have made a card similar to this one in the past but I don’t believe I ever posted it…at least I hope not. 😉   A friend of mine is expecting her first child and she and her hubby don’t want to know the sex of the baby, so I thought this idea would be perfect.  This cute little elephant is from Verve and the sentiment is SU.

Before I go I want to say thanks to Stef Perryfor being an awesome guest with us the past month! It was a joy working with you!

Happy Easter, Nanc’

Twins!

Hello Friends,  Hope you are having a great day!  I needed a baby card for a friend who’s daughter was having Twins so I combined that need with our Color Week at JUGS, where I happen to be hosting for the second week in a row! There is so much I adore about this card; Polka Dots, stitched stars and elephants! How can it get any better!  This adorable elephant is from Verve! He is one of my all time favorite go to stamps for Baby cards!

I would be tickled if you would come on over to Just Us Girls and join us this week! Take care, Nanc’

Supplies: Elephant-Verve, Stars and banner-MFT, sentiment and Stitched Circles are SU, the Scalloped circles are Spellbinders.

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.

Screen Shot 2016-04-30 at 2.43.45 PMHello Friends, I am going to make this post rather quick today as I am leaving in the morning for a few days of R and R with hubby for Father’s day weekend. I literally can’t wait!  It’s color week over at Just Us Girls, and let me just say this group of colors makes for a nice tri-fecta!  The leaves and sentiment are from Stampin Up and the flowers are from Verve!  The leaves and flowers were heat embossed. The polka dots were added with some stamps on cardstock for added interest.  I sure hope you have a wonderful weekend and if you find you have sometime to be creative…please come on over and join us at JUGS!  Who know….you maybe selected as our next Chic of the week!  Nanc’

CAS(E) this Sketch- Amazing You!

DSC_0002

CTS_170Hello Friends,  As soon as I saw this unique sketch over at CASE this Sketch I knew I had to try to squeeze in some time to play in my studio on Sunday, and I succeeded! I also got these incredible word dies from Verve called Amazing Adjectives that I wanted to break in so badly. The butterfly die is from Savvy, and the YOU is just a portion of a die from Neat and Tangled that I cut a apart.  This card did not come together quietly as it had many variations of paper and accents before landing on this one.

Hope you have a wonderful week! I personally will, as I am counting the days till I leave for Seattle.  I am fortunate enough to be spending Mother’s Day with my son this year and I am over the top excited!  I have never traveled by myself before, so wish me luck!

Take care,  Nanc’
