Friend!

Hello,  I back from Vacation and I am happy to be hosting this week at Just Us Girls. I have this beautiful floral picture to the left for your inspiration!  It’s also our last week for our Guest Julia.  Thanks for being with us Julia!  Your cards have been really wonderful and it’s been a joy having you with us!

This card was made with all different brands…. MFT, SU, Gina K, and Spellbinders. If you have any questions…let me know.

Before I go I would like to add a few pics of my travels out west this summer.  I was so very fortunate to meet up with two blogging friends once again.  Hubby and I were blessed to stay with my good friend and (fellow STB DT member ) Colleen and her husband Scott out in Oregon. They were such gracious hosts and we enjoyed our time with them immensely!!! I felt as if I was staying at a five star bed and breakfast.

After that, I also spent the entire day with another blogging friend that I have met once before, thanks to Colleen, her name is Linda!  She lives on the outskirts of Seattle and also has such a beautiful home!! The guys dropped me off at her place while they spent the day golfing. We went shopping at Impress, had a fabulous lunch, and talked for hours in her beautiful home. It was so comfortable, it was as if we had been friends for life!

Let me just say, that this community of stampers has really brought so much joy to my life. I am so thankful for these two ladies and many others that I have met, and hope to meet many more in the years to come!  Heart Hugs, Nanc’

Hello Friends,  I am hosting this week over at Just Us Girls and the Trend I have chosen is TAGS!  I believe it’s something that never goes out of style! I chose to put a tag on my card, but if you decide to join us and you just want to make a tag by itself, that is okay too!  Hope to see you in our gallery!  Gotta make it short as things are a little bit crazy in my life! Take care,  Nanc’

Card Info: MFT is the primary dies used on this card, along with at Verve sentiment, verve leafs, and Gina K paper. Some Nuvo drops for my daisy centers.

Happy New Home!

Hello Friends, It’a Photo Week over at Just Us Girls and here is how the photo inspired me. I must say I looked at this photo at least a half a dozen times before an idea came to me.  The first thing that stuck out with me in this photo was how prefect the home looked, as if it was New or in a showroom. (not lived in like mine for sure) LOL Then I was drawn to all the geometrics on the pillows and carpet.  I also loved the rocking chair and that is where my Khaki color came to be. I knew without a doubt I was going to be incorporating the flowers from the vases in my design also.  Finally, the white walls were mimicked with my brick wall EF.

Thanks so much for coming by and I sure hope to see you over at Just Us Girls sometime this week!  Take care, 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’

STB ToppingsHello Friends,  It’s Thursday and time for the next challenge over at Seize the Birthday! The topping this time around is “Lots of Leaves.”  Before I get to my card, we also have 3 fabulous new Design Team Members starting with us today over at Seize the Birthday, and I couldn’t be more happy to have them. Welcome Ashwini, Sandy, and TaeEun to the team! I am so happy to have you with us!  So after you leave here, head on over to STB and check out my welcome post, you can learn a little bit more about our new members and check out all the fabulous cards from the Design Team as well! My team really rocks! 🙂

Here are some card details:  The leave stamps are from Verve’s Harvest Blessings, aren’t they super fun?  The sentiment is something I picked up from who knows where, and the dotted label is from Gina K Designs. The Embossing folder is from Elizabeth Craft Design.

sip-any-tic-tac-toe-70-800-768x994I am linking my card up at a new to me Challenge site called Stamp Ink Paper, where they have a Tic Toe Challenge going on.  I chose the diagonal of Orange, Autumn and Patterned Paper.

Hope you have a terrific day and stop by STB to check out the work of the design team and play along! Nanc’

Happy, Happy Birthday!

STB Anything GoesHello Friends,  It’s Thursday and time for a brand new challenge over at Seize the Birthday!  It’s  Anything Goes this time, so if you just so happen to be making some Birthday cards and or projects over the next couple of days, I sure hope you will consider joining us! The team and our new Surprise Party Guest Sherrie have done some outstanding work this time around. Welcome Sherrie!  We are so glad you with us for the next couple of months!  The STB challenge runs for nearly two weeks so you have plenty of time!  It’s been a while since I got out my candle die cuts from Elizabeth craft Designs and they always are so much fun to decorate with paper and make them all snazzy. The Happy Birthday sentiment ( from Gina K) is stamped all the way down the blue background paper, but I nearly ended up covering the entire thing with the rest of my layers. I stuck a thin piece of paper through my label die and added those small blue dots for added interest. The white piece of paper is a fun die from Paper Smooches that I haven’t played with nearly enough.

I hope you are having a wonderful day!  Take care,  Nanc’

STB ToppingsHello friends,  The summer is racing by and so are our challenges over at Seize the Birthday.  Can you believe that it’s the end of July already?  I sure can’t! And in another week I will be back at work trying to stay cool. Anyhoo, let’s change the subject and talk about our next topping option over at Seize the Birthday!  For our ” topping” this time, we have one of my favorite color combos; Pink and Brown.  I started off my morning on Pinterest as I often do, and came across this card HERE that I decided I would love to Case!  If you enjoy Pink and Brown as much as I do I hope you will consider stopping on over at STB and joining us!  This card was made with a combination of Gina K Designs stamps and Stampin Up.  Take care, Nanc’

Sponging!

DSC_0046

Screen Shot 2016-06-11 at 11.46.27 AMHello Friends, Hope this weekend is finding you well!  It’s Saturday and time for our new challenge over at Just Us Girls! Vicki has a great one for us,  she asked us to incorporate sponging onto our card and or project! I had such a fantastic time making this card!  I decided to get out one of my neglected Gina K Design stamps to attack this challenge. (Out West 2) The waving wheat is a block stamp from Stampabilities. This card was made about a month ago for a very dear co-worker that retired and has a huge love of horses, as she has two herself.  If you have any questions on how I made this, just let me know! You can also check out some videos like I did from the talented Theresa Momber, and she will get you started! She has so much talent! Please come on over to Just Us Girls and check out the rest of the cards from our very talented team and Guest Designer Carol Mayne.  On a side note… My hubby and I took a red-eye home from Seattle Yesterday, so to say I am still a bit tired is an understatement.  I don’t know about you, but I can’t sleep on airplanes.  So between the 55+ miles we walked in a week’s time, the 3 hour time difference, and some serious jet lag (as the computer seems to be swaying) I don’t know which way is up. LOL  Not to mention, saying goodbye to Ty always puts me in a tail spin for at least a few days. We had such a wonderful time with both Ty and Sandra (his fiance’) and hope it’s not to long before we are all reunited once again.

Hope you have a fabulous day! Laundry and grocery shopping is in my future…How about you?  Nanc’

Happy Wonderful Christmas

DSC_0035

Hello Friends,  I have another Christmas card for you today once again using the negative of a tree die.  I sure hope I am not boring you with all of these different variations.  Rest assure there is only one more coming. LOL  Hubby and I are still in Seattle, and it’s Thanksgiving morning, as I write this post and boy do I have a lot to be thankful for.  The sun is shining…YES shining and it’s 34 degrees and I am safe, warm, and surrounded by two men that I completely adore.  I will be missing my extended family today, but so excited to be preparing our meal with my son beside me in the kitchen. Life is truly good!

Card Details:  I heat embossed the snow scene that you can barely see in the background and sponged it with Pool Party and a little bit of Tempting Turquoise. The sentiment is also heat embossed with silver.  I can’t for the life of me at the moment remember what company the sentiment is from, and not home to check. The cute little snowman that I colored with Prisma colored pencils is from Gina K Designs. The double bow is a die-cut from my school that I embossed.

New Banner-015I am linking my card up over at The Challenge where my good friend Lesley has asked us to make a Christmas Card.  Her and here Design Team have created some awesome cards that you should check out!

Before I head to the kitchen…..I just want to say that I am VERY Thankful for each and every one of you! You truly have made me feel very, very blessed over the years and I hope to continue this blog journey for many, many years to come!  Happy Thanksgiving!  Nanc’
