Wedding Wishes

Hello, It is the middle of the month already, and time for our next choice of colors at Color Hues. The colors I have chosen for us our Navy and Cream. As soon as I picked my colors I knew I was going to make a wedding card. When I think of cream I always think wedding. It’s such an elegant color don’t you think?

Here are a few card details: The fun heart die background is from MFT. The designer paper, the heart stamp, the circle die, and the greeting are from Stampin Up. The scalloped die is from Spellbinders.

You need to run on over to Color Hues and check out what the incredible design team did with the colors. We also have the fabulous Julie Peddicord joining us this time as our guest. Welcome, Julie!

Try to do something today that brings you joy, Nanc’

Love You!

Hello, Happy New Year!! I hope this post finds you healthy and happy. My son, daughter in law, and grand kitty are on their way back to California as I type, and the house is yet again empty. Boohoo! It takes Dave and I a few days to go through our emotions and the letdown but will get there. What choice do we have right? LOL Trying to be thankful for the time we had together not what we are missing or what could be.

Are you as ready as I am for 2021 to begin! All I can say is good riddance 2020! I know things aren’t magically going to get better overnight but we have to have faith that some part of this year will be salvaged and life might return to somewhat normal. I am not sure we will ever go back to 100% the way things were pre-Covid but maybe that is a good thing. Thoughts? Is there anything about staying home and limiting social interaction that you have enjoyed? I think this would make a great conversation. I am up for it if you are!

Now, speaking of New Year! Do you do Resolutions? A few years ago I did manage to give up my one Coke-a-day vice and I haven’t even had one since. Go me!! So I guess some matter of success over the last few decades or so is better than none. LOL I usually don’t do a very good job sticking with these types of things. So, what I do NOW is, I come up with a WORD for the year to live by and to perhaps challenge me. My word this year is going to be…

pro·duc·tive : achieving or producing a significant amount or result.

This can pertain to every aspect of my life. When I was thinking about what I wanted my word to be I kept thinking about all the time I tend to waste in my day and how many things that I want to do especially now that I am retired. I want to travel more, golf more, bake more, craft more, read more, socialize more ( after Covid of course) and the list goes on and on. I don’t know about you but since retirement, I tend to waste the first few hours of the day right after I wake, and that has got to change! Hubby is in complete agreement with this idea so that is going to push me too!

This post was a tad longer than I expected so if you stuck with me….thank you so much!

Now, It is time for our next Hues of colors over at Color Hues! Woohoo!

As you can see the colors this time around are Red and Grey, and my mind went right to Valentine’s Day when I saw Lindsey’s selection. However, my card wouldn’t necessarily have to be for V’Day it could be for any time you want to tell a friend how much you care about them.

Card Details: Heart Die is from Simon Says Stamps, the Love You is from SU, the sweet friend is Gina K. Designs.

Please come on by Color Hues and check out all the fabulous inspiration from the Design Team and our guest Julie! We would love to have you join us too! And once again Happy New Year to all of you! Nanc’

Hugs

Hello, I hope this post finds you well.  The card I have for you today is something other than Christmas. It is for the latest Flower Challenge where they asked us to use embellishments.  I borrowed this gorgeous Altenew hibiscus die from a friend and it was so much fun to piece together. I made quite a few in various colors before returning it to her.

The embossing folder background is from Sizzix. The hugs is from Simon Says Stamps. I believe the clear sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh. The heart is MFT. The leaves are made with a SU punch. This card is a CASE of this lovely card.

Take care, Nanc’

Die Cuts at STB

Hello, Hope this post finds you doing well.  Today starts the next challenge over at Seize the Birthday.  The topping is to use Diecuts only on your card and or project, although the sentiment may be stamped. I am still working on using up some of my Designer Paper and I thought this layout would do the trick.  I have made a card like this many years ago in case it looks vaguely familiar.  I find if I am in a pinch I CASE myself to keep things moving. I made another card using a different background color.  The heart dies are MFT and the sentiment is Verve.

I hope you will come on over to STB and check out what the team and our brand new Surprise Party Guest did for this challenge.  I know you will know who she is …it’s the talented and oh so busy Angie Cimbalo.  See you at STB!  Nanc’

CAS @ The Paper Players

 

Hello,  I am joining in the celebration over at The Paper Players for their 500th challenge.  Congrats to the team for such a successful journey.  I look forward to your continued success and many more challenges to come.

I found an old background that I had made using the smooshing technique awhile ago in one of my drawers today and knew it would work out perfectly with this adorable tree die from MFT that I just received. I made another card with the leftover outer background. I couldn’t let it go to waste. CAS is a challenge for me but I like these cards.

I am going to link up the bottom card over at Darnell’s NBUS. 

The sentiments are from Papertrey Ink and I also added some clear Nuvo Drops.

I so appreciate you coming by, stay well. Nanc’

Love…You

Hello, I am here with two nearly identical Valentine cards for a couple of challenges. These cards are quick and simple and easy to mass-produce.  The Love die is from Simon Says Stamps, the heart flower die is also Simon Says and the You sentiment is from Verve. I am linking these cards up over at The Card Concept where my style is CLEAN and LAYERED and Casology where the word is Sweetheart.

Thanks for popping in! Nanc’

You are my Missing Piece

Hello,  Back again with another card today this one if for the Fusion Card Challenge where I opted on just the sketch this time.  This SU puzzle piece set is so much fun to use. I paired it with this beautiful paper from Bo Bunny.  Added some little hearts and rhinestones and I was done.

Hope you are having a creative day! Nanc’

You Touched My Heart

dsc_0072

screen-shot-2017-01-07-at-6-58-34-pmHello Friends,  Vicki is hosting over at Just Us Girls and she has a perfect Trend for us this week.  Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner it was perfect time to incorporate Hearts on our cards and or projects.  I just love the look of Inlay Die-cutting, so that is what I decided to do with this challenge. The paper is from SU, the Hearts are from MFT and the sentiment is from Verve. I think I will definitely be doing this again. It’s almost like I made my own cover plate.

Have a fabulous day and you MUST come by and see what the team and our Guest Michelle have done! Take care, Nanc’

MFT Sketch Challenge #316

dsc_0021

mft_wsc_316Hello Friends,  I am popping in with a quick post for the latest MFT Sketch Challenge.  I have been eyeing this sketch for about a week, and tonight after work I finally had a chance to put something together.  I literally am in love with my new Adorable Elephant stamps and matching dies from MFT along with my Stitched Hearts.  You are going to be seeing a lot of these so I will apologize in advance!  Infact, all the dies here are from MFT and the you sentiment is from Verve.

Thanks for checkin’ in on me and have a fabulous day! Nanc’
