Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!


Grateful Heart

Hello, We have a perfect Fall photo for you this week at Just Us Girls that is sure to inspire you!  This card may look a tad familiar if you are one of my avid followers.  I made a card very similar to this one a few weeks back and I loved that one so much I had to make another, especially once I saw the photo Bobby had selected for us. This card is in the running for the most favorite card of mine to date. I truly love it! I did the smooshing technique on watercolor paper for the background of my leaves.  The veins of the leaves are made out of gold sparkle paper. It is so lovely! The two tags are made from the same. I decided to distress the edges of the crumb cake paper and the ivory sentiment paper.  The sentiment is heat embossed. A few gold Nuvo drops too.  The leaves and small rectangle are SU and the sentiment is Verve. The large rounded corner rectangle and banners are MFT. I am also linking my card up at 2 other challenges. Time Out Challenges, the word is grateful.  Inspire Create, the word is die cuts.

  Before I go I would like to thank Chris for being with us this month.  It was great having you back on the team, it was just like old times.

Go and create an amazing day!  Nanc’



I am grateful for so much these days….I am grateful that my dad is here on his 80th Birthday, I am grateful to have a son who is happy and healthy and so sure what his purpose in life is, I am grateful to have a wonderful husband who puts up with me and is always willing to do whatever it is that I have volunteered him to do with not much of a complaint.  I am grateful I have  a wonderful job that makes me smile.   I am grateful I got to spend some quality time last weekend with my sisters and brother.  I am grateful for so much and so much more!

What are you grateful for?
