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


Fall Colors @ JUGS!


screen-shot-2016-09-01-at-3-32-19-pmHello Friends,  It seems like forever since I have posted anything, but it’s only been a week! Judy is our hostess this week at Just Us Girls and she has picked out some terrific Fall colors for us to play around with. I am not a big Halloween kinda gal, but always like to send out at least a few cards to my immediate family.  I was thinking about this post this week, and realized I better get a move on since it’s already the middle of the month.  Once I made myself a candy corn template out of cardboard the card came together rather quickly. The sentiment is from Stampin Up. The papers are just random scraps of this and that, since I clearly don’t throw any paper away no matter how small. LOL The buttons I adore and they are dies from MFT. I know I stretched the colors a bit with my orange ribbon, but I just had to! Orange is in the same color family as rust, so I should be good! Hope you will stop on over sometime this week and check out the teams cards and join us!

challenge-215I am also linking my card up over at Addicted to Stamps and More where they have a Halloween inspired photo!  I thought my circles all over my card mimicked many moons, and I have a lot of black on my card as well, as does the photo. Take care, Nanc’


Die Cut Crazy Magazine….

EEKKKK….That is me pinching myself when Stephanie the Fabulous Editor of Die Cut Crazy Magazine

told me she wanted to put my card as the focal point on the Cover of this Month’s release!


Thanks Stephanie!  YOU ARE TRULY the BEST!!!

Here is another photo of my card and pizza box that I made to go along with this release.

I also have a quick tutorial in the magazine of how to make a basic pizza box for an occasion!

Here is what I came up with:


I thought with October fast approaching it was time to get try my hand at some Halloween cards.

My card may not look simple…but let me tell you that once I had my

template drawn for my Witch Hat…the entire card

took about 15 minutes tops!

I punched out some stars, made a sentiment on my computer,

and added some distressing and I was done!
