Father’s Day Card

I have a quick simple card for you today using a new to me stamp set from Taylored Expressions.  I needed some Father’s Day cards for the store and thought these would be quick and fun to do. I am going to link this up over at CASology in hopes it’s CAS enough. The speckled background behind my panels was made with a very old Stampin Up stamp. I colored my images with colored pencils and the letters are from MFT.

I will also be linking this up over at Darnell’s NBUS.

I hope you are having a great day, Nanc’


Happy Father’s Day

Hello,  Today I have a stamp set from Mulberry stamps that I bet I have had for at least 10+ years and has never been inked up. Seriously, I am not exaggerating. Now that I am starting to feel a bit more comfortable with my coloring skills I decided to give it a shot.  I have been doing a lot of coloring in the evenings, it seems to have a calming effect on me, and many others I am sure.  I used both Copic and Prismas for this piece. I added the clouds with my MFT stencil. I have been doing that after my piece is colored and you have to be a little bit more careful and have to go on the lighter side.  Now the cute little bear and his dog look as if they are trapped on an island. LOL  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

I am linking this cutie up over at The Paper Players where the theme is CAS with Men in Mind.  I sure hope it’s CAS enough! Fingers crossed.

I guess I better link up with Darnell too over at NBUS.  My stamp set deserves that, as it’s been waiting for 10+ years!

Stay well and if you are a little stressed….try coloring!  I was told wine works too! Nanc’




Hi friends, Over at Creative with Stamps, it’s Masculine this month. So I got out my trusty fish set from SU and went to work.  The bold letter dies are from Sizzix, the paper is from SU, and the wave die is MFT.  I really like how the fish came out. That’s all from me today!  I head back to work tomorrow! Boohoooo! Hope I can continue all the card making that I managed to get done this summer. We shall see!



Bold Letters!

I am hosting this week for Trend Week at Just Us Girls. The trend I have chosen that seems to never go out of style is…Bold Letters. If you don’t have any Bold individual letters a large sentiment will do. I have done a little bit of both! Wait to you see all the amazing cards the team and our guest Eva came up with!  I was blown away!

This card is a mix of SU, Verve, MFT, and Sizzix.  If you have any questions let me know!

Hope you will consider joining us at JUGS! Nanc’


Thanks Dad!

Hello Friends,  Here is a quick collage of the Father’s Day cards I made to sell.  I can’t take credit for this design as I found it on Pinterest! Kara Lynne came up with this awesome idea and you can find her card HERE! Hope you have a great day how ever you plan to spend it.  My dad is 86 and refuses to come over for dinner or for me to bring him dinner.  So I will be going by just the same to tell him how awesome he is with dessert in hand!

The script dies are from Verve and are really fabulous! The DAD was made with large Alphabet dies from Sizzix.

Take care, Nanc’


Father’s Day…

While the dessert is baking in the oven and the men in my life are on

the golf course…I thought I would take a minute and post the

card I made for my Hubby, for my son to give to him, at his request.

It goes along with the Father’s Day Theme over at

The Pink Elephant.



Here is my inspiration card I found on Pinterest.

This one is so amazing…not like mine…which is just okay! :/


The reds on my cards look a little orange…must be the lighting.

It is so much fun working with an old book…I do enjoy that!

After I took the photo I realized the script on the card says ” Weird”

right under the large star….What’s funny about it is that is my hubby to a tee.

I am not trying to be mean it’s just the truth…. lol!

If you look to the left it also says ” Smiling” which describes him too

so I feel better now.  LOL

Here is the Link and photo of what is smelling up my house

and making me drool…..YUM!

White Chocolate S’mores Gooey Cake Bars


Want one????

Have an awesome day…thanks for visiting.

Happy Father’s Day…

Just a quick post to show you the card I made for my dad for Father’s Day. On the inside it says,” Traeasure the Moments is what I do especially when I spend time with you!”  That statement is so true!! I don’t take for granted the time I spend with my father, we don’t have to go anywhere or do anything . The times I will cherish the most is when he drops by my house and we sit and talk about the world’s problems, politics and what ever else is on his mind.   Since my mother passed away many years ago we have become very close  and for that I am grateful!  I sure love you DAD!

The stamp set I am showcasing is called Timeless Treasures from Gina K Designs and the artist is Theresa Momber!

Have a wonderful day!
