Celebrate the Best Day Ever

Hi, My card for the latest Sketch Challenge at The Paper Players, hosted by the lovely Anne Marie, is a very quick one where the DSP does all the work! I was still in a bit of a time crunch this week so I unfortunately didn’t have much time to be overly creative. We all have weeks like that, and I think it’s called LIFE.

I also just noticed that my panels are centered and they shouldn’t be! UGH!

Card Details: The Greeting and rectangle die are from SU, the embossed love heart that embosses the word while cutting out the heart is a Recollections die that I have had for eons and never used. The stitched heart is from MFT. The DSP is from Hobby Lobby or Michaels.

Wishing you both…

Hello, Here we are back to Sunday once again with the next challenge over at The Paper Players. Where do the days go? Anne Marie is our hostess and her theme challenge is Hearts and or Stars. As you can see by my card above I went the Hearts route. I know many of us are in the middle of making Valentines but I needed to replenish the Wedding cards this week, so that is where my focus was when I began.

Card Details: Stitched Heart is MFT, Puzzle pieces are from Stampin Up. The greeting is Stampin Up as well and I just adore that font. I made the bow tie with a Paper Smooches die.

Sending U Love

Hello, It is the first of February and time for the next duo of colors at Color Hues. We have the perfect pairing for this time of year. The colors Sheri has chosen for us are Red and Pink. So break out those valentine sets or what have you and play along!

A Few Card Details: I have a mix of supplies here which should not surprise you. The U die and envelope are both from Verve. The Love die is from Simon Says Stamps and the Sending is from Wplus9. My love die looks rather pink in the picture but it is red. Plus I do have red in the fun designer paper. This card came together rather quickly so I made a few extra for the stores.

Hope you will consider joining us at Color Hues! The team and our guest Julie have tons over there to inspire you!

Take care, 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’

Love-Color Hues

Hi,  It’s October 1st can you believe it?  I know we all are ready for 2020 to be behind us and despite how hard and yet mundane this year has been at times it’s still has gone by very quickly, in my opinion.  Today, I have for you the next duo of colors for the Color Hues Challenge.   As you can see by the graphic to the left the colors are gold and cream.

Card details: The Love die is from Simon Says Stamps and the Ribbon Heart die is from Poppy Stamps.  I added a few small hearts from a punch if you look carefully.

We not only have fabulous cards over on the blog by the design team we have our first guest designing alongside us. She was the winner for our first challenge-Come on over and see who it is!

Hope to see you at Color Hues and take care, Nanc’

Congratulations…

Hello,  Happy weekend! Today we have a Trend challenge starting over at Just Us Girls and Carol’s code work is Mini.  There is a various amount of ways to interpret this challenge. Whether you make small cards or maybe use miniature items on your card, etc…  What I have done with my card is to use miniature items; small hearts, small text, and small gems. I just received these fun wedding ring dies from SSS and decided to include the background text stamp from SSS as well. I don’t think I have used this stamp before either. The congratulation sentiment is from SU.  I intentionally tried to stamp the background lightly in case you were wondering.

I am also linking my cards up over at NBUS #14. 

Thanks for popping in and I hope you decide to join us this week at JUGS! Take care, Nanc’

Love…U!

Hello, I thought a little crafting would do me some good today and I found the perfect challenge to play along with.  My dad fell last weekend and it’s been a rollercoaster week of emotion with very little sleep.  I am pleased to have finally gotten him out of the hospital (a terrible experience this time) and back at a Rehab facility that I trust.  So things are looking up.

Over at Inspire. Create. Challenges they have a blank canvas as their sketch so the sky’s the limit.  I didn’t feel like creating something from scratch so I decided to CASE a favorite card of mine.  Here you can find my first card!

I am also linking this card up over at Addicted to Stamps and More where it’s Anything Goes.

Card Details: Here is a bit about my card!  The Flower and U are from Verve and some of my very first stamps/dies! The leaves are a punch from SU and then embossed for added texture. The flowers are MFT and were colored using the smooshing technique and oxide inks. The heart die is also from MFT, the love die is from Neat and Tangled.  The background was lightly stenciled with an MFT die.

Another day off tomorrow, which is great, as we have a meeting at the Rehab facility in the morning and who knows maybe a little shopping after that!  I already did a little stamp shopping (shhhhhh…don’t tell the mister.)  Shopping always makes me happy! LOL

Take care, Nanc’

Hello,   I want to pop in today to post a card for the fun color challenge going on over at The Paper Players.  These cards were super fun and so easy to make. The colors were a bit tough to photograph but the puzzle pieces that read “to pieces” were stamped in red ink.

Card Details: Stamps- Stampin UP, Martha Stewart border punch, The heart dies are from MFT.

Have a great day! Nanc’
