Let’s get together…

Hello,  I finally broke down and purchased this darling coffee set from The Greetery and I am so glad I did.  I have been keeping my eye on a fun challenge called the Global Design Project and this week they asked us to CASE a card.  I decided that I would try to make a repetitive background with my coffee cups like they did with their world die. After I was done making my background paper I decided it needed a bit of something more and I added the little brown hearts from Verve. The sentiment is a mix and match of two other stamp sets from Verve as well. I added the leaves and the bow to mimic the feather and string on the designer’s card. I cut the spoon out of gold paper and the bow die is Paper Smooches.

Have a wonderful day, Nanc’

Miss You

This is my second post for the day but I am cutting it down to the wire with the Sketch Challenge over at MFT.  I started using Oxide inks to make my beach scene, but the sand itself is just kraft cardstock.  I should have given it some texture, but totally forgot.  Using my Beach Scene builders Palm Tree, one of the shells from that set, along with a starfish shell from Impression Obsession, I managed to check off the circle elements from the sketch.  The miss you sentiment is also from MFT.  I sure did struggle with the banner.  I made four different ones and still not overly happy with it. The fun scalloped rectangle I believe is Spellbinders.

Thanks for stopping by I sure do appreciate your sweet comments! Nanc’

Wish you were here…

I have a very CAS card for you today that was completely inspired by a card I received from a dear friend- Patti from Stationary Styles. This card inspired me so much that I decided to make my own die-cut of Florida on my Silhouette Cameo. This card has prompted tons of possibilities for sentiments and I have made quite a few.  I have even made some Christmas cards too.  These are very popular in the store where I sell my cards.  The sentiment for this card is from Simon Says Stamps.

This card really speaks to me today as it’s my daughter in law’s birthday, and I am missing them so very much. We have never gone this long without seeing one another.

I am linking this up over at Just Add Ink where the challenge is the Letter F- Florida!

Have a wonderful day and stay safe, Nanc’

Here is the card from Patti!

Miss You…

Hi, I hope you are having a great day! Over at Creative with Stamps, they have a new challenge starting and the word this month is Tree. Being a Florida girl I went with the obvious Palm Tree. This card was fun to throw together. I am also going to link it up over at Addicted to Stamps and More where it’s Anything Goes!! I have a few interesting card details below:

Card Details: Oxide Ink Background, used the MFT cloud die upside down for my “White-Capped Waves”, the sandhill is sponged and splatted and then cut with an edge-die from Papertrey Ink, Palm Trees and bare feet are Kitchen Sink Stamps, the Miss You is Pretty Pink Posh.

Thanks for stopping in, Nanc’

I Miss You Already

Hello,  I am your hostess this week at Just Us Girls and it’s Color Week.  I have a Spring-like Color palette for you all that are dealing with snow in hopes that it will warm you up a bit, and remind you that eventually it will feel like Spring! We have been having really hot temperatures here in Florida and appears that we may skip Spring altogether. 😦

Today’s card is a mix of MFT and SU. I just adore these MFT elephants and it was time to get them out and play with them again.  I did some emboss resist and didn’t worry too much about my ink blending and am rather happy with the results.  The Ele, florals, and butterflies are MFT. The Ele was colored with Prismas and the sentiment is from SU.

I sure hope you will consider coming over to JUGS and joining us this week!  Who knows you may even become our Chic of the Week!

See you there!  Nanc’

Beach is the Word!

Hello,  I made this card a while ago and wanted so bad to make a replacement card this week, but that didn’t happen. So, I am afraid you are stuck with this one. The fun DP is what carries this card, along with the fun shell dies from IO. The wave die is from MFT. The sentiment and square dies are SU.

Now I know this card didn’t inspire you…so PLEASE head on over to Just Us Girls, as their is a ton of it this week over there! I would also like to welcome our new Monthly guest Ros Crawford.  I am so happy you are with us Ros!  We know our guests will be inspired by your work and we hope you will enjoy yourself too!

Hugs, Nanc’

Hello, Hope you are having a good day! I have been eyeing this challenge over at Addicted to CAS and decided to take sometime today to join in. The challenge is rainbow.  Hopefully the added embellishments doesn’t disqualify me from CAS.  However if it does, I had fun just the same.

I am also linking up to the Addicted to Stamps and More site where it’s Anything Goes.

I am also enjoying the 30 day coloring challenge but unfortunately I missed yesterday and messed up my perfect track record. I know it’s not a huge deal in the grand scheme of life, but disappointed just the same.

The negative heart die is from SU, the hill stitched border is Lawn Fawn and the stamps and letter dies are MFT.

I sure appreciate you stopping by, Nanc’

More Mojo Monday!

mojo464Hello Friends,  I have another card for the fabulous sketch over at Mojo Monday, where it just so happens to be contest week.  If you have never played along over there, you are missing out!   The sad but cute little duckling is from Stampabilities. The sentiment is from Verve and the die-clouds are from Paper Smooches.  I used my Spectrum Noir pens to color my little duckling. I hope you can make out some texture that I tried to achieve on his feathers. I double stamped him and fussy cut him out in hopes to achieve some depth. This card will soon be on his way to …guess who?  I sure am missing him a bunch these days!  Take care, Nanc’

I Miss You Like Crazy…

I made this card this afternoon after I completed the usual Saturday chores.  Love when you get and idea and things come together!  I am going to enter it into three different challenges.  First, the sketch challenge over at iSpy Sketches and Secondly, the color challenge over at CR84FN. And Last its for the Any Hero Challenge over at OWH.  If you are not familiar with OWH…go check it out!  It’s an amazing way to say Thanks to the Troops!!  Let me tell you a little bit about how it came together.  Once I picked out the DP (Creative Memories) and the colored card stock which is a mix of CM, SU and Bazzil I took my star stamp from SU and stamped on the tan card stock.  Then I added some distressing with SU Chocolate Ink. Used my Cricut to cut out most of my stars along with a SU scalloped punch. Made the ribbons with scissors and the sentiment is from Verve and is called Heartfelt Phrases. The tag die cut is from My Favorite Things.

Finished it off with a button and some twine and Wolaaaa!

Hope you have a great Sunday…It’s time to watch some Football…GO FSU!!!!
