Today over at Just Us Girls, sweet Carol Mayne is our hostess and it’s Wild Card Week. Every time I type that I always say Rivalry Week in my head! It is a Sports phrase and hubby and I always say using W’s instead of R’s. LOL Just like Elmer Fudd. Anyway, it is probably funnier to us than to you right about now. 🙂

For those unfamiliar with Wild Card Week, it only happens when there are 5 Saturdays in the month, and the challenge is wide open and the hostess can pick anything she wants. Carol has selected Plaid as her challenge. Easy huh? Today, I have another Coffee Cup Gift card holder for you using some fun plaid paper from Pink and Main.

Card Details: GC holder is from Catherine Pooler, the coffee cup is from MFT, the sentiment is from Verve. If you look closely I have a scalloped piece of vellum behind my stitched circle. I sponged the top and bottom of the cup with Oxide Inks.

Before I go I want to say a HUGE thanks to both Chrissie and Stef for being such fabulous guests this month at JUGS! We have certainly enjoyed having you along.

Hope you will join us at Just Us Girls this week and happy creating, Nanc’



Hello, I hope all is well with you! It’s Thursday so you can probably figure out that it is time for the next Topping at Seize the Birthday. Julie is our hostess and she has a very fun topping for us this time around. What is your Beverage of choice? I guess it would depend on the time of day. Although, I am a huge coffee drinker and can drink it morning noon, and night. The staff at DD know me by name. LOL I thought it would be the perfect time to make another Gift Card Holder. I totally failed to take a photo of the inside of the card and it is long gone. So I will show you the die below so you get the idea.

I am going to add this card to the Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies Challenge as well!

Card Details: Here is a photo of the die so you can see how it works. As you can see the cup itself is the cardholder and you decorate the sleeve. I have used some coffee cups from MFT to do just that. The hashtag greeting was gifted to me and is from Papertrey Ink. I stumbled upon the DSP in my stash and that was a happy find and helped me choose my color direction! The Chevron EF is from SU.

Now, head on over to Seize the Birthday and you can see a huge variety of beverages! I hope you will be inspired to join us.

Take care, Nanc’

Hello there! I hope you are doing well! It’s the first of November and time for the next hues of colors at Color Hues! Sheri has chosen a perfect color combo for this time of year. I have a fun Gift card holder for you today. I have such a love for all things coffee, so when I saw this die at Catherine Pooler I knew I had to have it. See the rest of the details below.

Card Details: Catherine Pooler Card to Go Die. The background and small coffee cup die are both from MFT. The sentiment is from Verve. I forgot to take a picture of the cup pulled out but you can see how it works as the die is in my photo. I used some light Oxide Inks to put some color on the top and bottom of my cup along with the circle piece. I also have a piece of scalloped vellum behind my cute cup.

Now, stop on by Color Hues and check out the Design Team’s cards along with our guest Asa! I know you will be inspired!

Happy creating, Nanc’


National Coffee Day

Hello It is national Coffee Day and I just had to partake! If you know me at all, coffee is my love language and one of the casualties of Covid is I am now pretty much addicted to DD’s Iced Coffee! My hubby will totally agree with that statement and I have taken him to the dark side with me! It really has become a serious problem. Speaking of Coffee you need to hop on over to The Coffee Loving Card Makers Blog and check out the Hop they have going on. Lots of prizes to be had. Amy Tsuruta does and incredible job with this every year! Well done Amy!

Thanks to my enabling best friend Carol, I recently purchased this fun Coffee Cup Gift Card holder from Catherine Pooler that is super fun to play with. I have linked it up for you, as she can’t be the only one to enable people around here. LOL

Here is the inside so you can see how it works! I took this pic today as I forgot the first time. Notice the sun is not shining! LOL

I also want to add my card to the challenge over at Tic Tac Toe where I have selected the diagonal row of Diecut-Free-Fall. And over at Global Design Project where the Theme is leaves.

Card Details: I paired my new fun Coffee Cup Gift Card Holder with my favorite leaf die from SU. The sentiments are all from retired Verve and the top and bottom of the cup is sponged in yellow Oxide ink. If you look closely there is a piece of scalloped vellum behind the sentiment and some dimensionals. You will be seeing more of these cups real soon!

Take care and happy crafting and coffee drinking!

I made it to Duncan Donuts for my free coffee with purchase…did you? Nanc’
