Congratulations… on your Retirement

Hello, as you can see I found another nautically inspired challenge site to play along with this week. This card is for Time Out Challenges. I found the perfect DP-by Kaiser Craft to use along with my SU-Nautical stamp set to complete it.  This was so quick, but I like the way it came together.  The card is going to a person that in fact sails, so hopefully he will love it and get a kick out of my sailor’s knot.

Thanks for your visits…they are so appreciated.

Happy 62nd Birthday!

Hello, Today’s card is for Color Week at Just Us Girls. It’s nothing special but it fits the challenge just the same.  I needed a specific masculine card for a friend and this is all I could come up with.  Masculine cards are so tough!  I have chosen grey as my 3rd color choice. I always enjoy these type of challenges where you can throw in your own color.

Please come on over to Just Us Girls and see what my team and our talented Guest Hannelie chose for their 3rd color!

Take care, Nanc’

Travel

DSC_0224

Screen Shot 2016-08-07 at 11.06.09 AMHello from soggy Florida!  We have endured Hurricane Hermine and the 12 inches of rain very well and have spent the past couple of days tinkering inside the house and catching up on some of our Amazon Prime and Netflix series.  As I am writing this post we still are having some wind gusts of about 4o mph. It keeps you on your toes for sure. We didn’t have school on Thursday or Friday due to so much flooding, and also have Monday off for Labor Day. I guess I could complain, but I can’t figure out why. LOL  I guess I will just have to endure! (insert snarky face) Okay, onto today’s card!  It’s Word Week over at Just Us Girls and Ina has chosen the word Travel.   I started this card quite awhile ago at a girls’s stamping get together, and when I came across Ina’s challenge I was thrilled that I had something started.  Here is a link to the old Jalopy car by Sizzix and the embossing folders are from Cuttlebug. I do not personally own either of these, as they belong to my good friend Janet. Isn’t that car the coolest?  On the inside the card reads, “You’re not old you’re Vintage.” LOL  I decided the card needed a little something on the front so I added the 3 pieces of sentiment. I also love taking a sanding block to an embossing folder and letting some of the white underlay peer through. I think it works exceptionally well on masculine cards, don’t you?

DSC_0226Before I go I would like to welcome our new Guest Designer for the month…. Kathy Schweinfurth, Stamps At Play.  Welcome Kathy!  The girls and I are thrilled you are with us!  Speaking of the girls!  You have to go look at the entire team’s cards, they are terrific this week!  I hope you decide to join us too!   Have a great weekend, and with any luck we will dry out and the sun will peer his face today!  HUGS!

Hello Friends!

Today over at Just Us Girls Maria has chosen a great Color Combo!

I needed a masculine card for a co-worker and knew I wanted to

incorporate basketballs in my design, and a few weeks ago when I saw Maria’s color

choices I thought why not!  

The card is going to be filled with student signatures so I made it pretty large.

 I was a little worried about the

yellow at first, but it worked out pretty well!  My neutrals obviously are

white and black…hope it’s okay that I used both!

The card came together rather quickly…not sure it needs any explaining!

I hadn’t used some of those letter stamp sets in sooooo long…

it was nice to get them inky again!

Now, Please head on over to Just Us Girls and see what the team did 

with this color combo…I promise you won’t be disappointed!

While your at it PLEASE JOIN us!

If your chosen as Chic of the Week it puts you in the running at

a chance to be a Guest Designer with JUGS!

Hope to see you there!

Masculine Card

I have a dear friend who has been diagnosed with cancer so I am in need of a masculine card to send to him.  It is so sad and such a wake up call to all of us to take each day and make it special, cause you just never know.  He is having more tests this week to see his prognosis and to determine the plan of treatment.  We are praying for the best!  Unto the card.  This card is for the Freshly Made Sketch of the week that you can find Here!  The tag is from Verve and the Sentiment I have had forever!  The DP however is brand new.  I just went to Hobby Lobby for the first time yesterday and picked up this really cool pack of paper!  It’s from DCWV and is called LA Creme.  LOVE IT!  I don’t know if you can tell in the photo, but some of the Stars are coming through the Dark Gray paper and are not on top.

Have a great week…back to work I go,

Happy Son’s Day !

June 30th is Son's Day at our House!

June 30th is Son's Day at our House!

Last year my hubby and I declared June 30th  as  Son’s Day ( if it’s already a Holiday I’m not aware) anyways since we have Mother’s Day and Father’s Day we thought why not!   So today while he is at work , I created this card for him to keep the tradition going.   I have such a hard time with masculine cards, but I like it pretty well!  We are sooooooo blessed to have the most terrific son anyone could possibly have, he is simply a gift from above!  He amazes us each and every day and makes our life such a joy!  I just wish he would stop growing up so fast!  He will be a Junior in Highschool this coming year.  WE LOVE YOU TYLER!

Inside of card says: You were not born to Fit In, you were born to Stand Out!

I cheated on this card!  I used my Computer for all the writing!

Paper: Cardstock Pad (Story of Us) (from Michaels)

Accessories:  Sm. and lg. star punch and star brads
