Get Well

Hello Friends,  I just love color challenges and this week over at Just Us Girls we have a fabulous one! I had some left over gold paper that I had used for the party favors for the wedding, and it worked out perfectly for my leaves. The flowers are from MFT and the sentiment and the stitched circle is from SU. Some gold Nuvo drops and I was done.

Please come by and join us at JUGS…the team and our guest Trina did a fabulous job as always! Nanc’

Anything Goes Birthday at STB!

Hello my faithful friends, It’s count down time to the wedding and it’s getting surreal and exciting. Luckily, I worked way ahead on my cards as that craft is taking a back seat currently.  Right now I am in Large Paper flower mode.  I will share some photos with you when I have more time.  So, it’s time for our Anything Goes challenge over at Seize the Birthday.  I made this card quite a few months ago and still not sure how I feel about it. However, I do like the felt balloon. I hope you will consider coming by STB and joining us, the team and our guest Becca did an awesome job as always.!  I hope you have a wonderful day!  Nanc’

Card Details: MFT-Adorable Elephants-Stitched Rectangles, Happy Birthday stamp from who knows where, Prisma colored pencils, and felt.

Birthday Flyby!

Hello Friends,  It’s Thursday and time for another great Topping at Seize the Birthday.  What we have for you this time is Balloons.  Works perfectly for a Birthday Challenge blog don’t you think? As I am writing this post, I have no idea what my life is going to be like in less than 24 hours.  I am currently in the path of Hurricane Irma and to say I am worried would be entirely TRUE! So I thought I would take a break from the fretting and news watching and get my post ready early, just in case I have no power on Thursday. I sure hope that is the only issue I am dealing with by then.  Anyhoo….Enough of that! 

I sure hope you come by and join us at Seize the Birthday and while you are there please help me in welcoming our new Surprise Party Guest Becca Cruger!  Thrilled to have you joining us these next two months Becca! Here is where my inspiration came for my card!

Take care, Nanc’

Card info: MFT Dragon set and Lawn Fawn clouds.  Colored with colored pencil.

Ocean Colors

Tie One On and Meeting Blogging Friends!

 

Hello Friends, Hope you are having a great day! If you are visiting me on Thursday August 3rd, it’s indeed my last day of Summer Vacation.  Boohoo…..I was having such a great summer I didn’t want it to end, but end it must! Our school year starts tommorrow. I know you are scratching your head and saying on a Friday???  I am too, but whatever!  The weekend will be here before you know it! LOL I don’t want to appear ungrateful for the time off, so I will move onto today’s New topping over at Seize the Birthday! The topping is ” Tie One On.”

I had a fabulous time creating this card.  This particular MFT guy was colored with my hubby’s help.  He was giving me an art lesson and said that the elephant needed to have more variations of color to make him look real.  Not sure I am 100% pleased with how he turned out, but I went along with the ART teacher anyways. 😉 The balloon and butterfly are colored pencil too.

The dots were made with a SU stencil.  Everything else is MFT.

Now the exciting stuff!

I had the ultimate pleasure last week to meet up with Lesley Croghan the creator of Seize the Birthday while in Canada with my family!  She is as lovely and funny as I imagined she would be.  I also had the opportunity to meet one of my STB teammates while in Victoria, CA. Glenda, her hubby Karl, and my family and I had a delightful lunch together too. I can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoyed it. They are the nicest and sweetest couple. When the day was done my son said it best, “Canada people are just good people!”  I so agree with him! It felt so comfortable and that I had known both of these lovely women for years!  My heart is full and I can’t wait to do it again someday!  Here are a few photos!Lesley Croghan and IKarl, Dave, Sandra, Ty, Myself and Glenda

If you ever get the opportunity to meet your blogging friends….I strongly suggest it!

Please join us over at Seize the Birthday!  My fabulous team and Guestie- Lindsey did a wonderful job as always!  Come by and check it out!

Take care, Nanc’

Splatter at STB!

 

Hello Friends, Hope you are having a great day so far! I had such a great time making this card with some of my favorite stamp sets.  I had the PI girl colored with colored pencil for quite sometime and I am so glad I waited till after I got my Oxide Inks to put the card together. My new inks matched perfectly with the colors I had chosen to color her with.  Love when that happens…don’t you?  This card is for our challenge over at Seize the Birthday for the next two weeks.  The topping I chose this time around is Splatter! It’s such a fun technique that generally gives such great results! I feel like it kicks up the card a notch or two. Of course after I made my splats, I remembered I had a punch that might be fun to use as well and then that is how the paint brush came to be.  The perfectly uniformed round spots were made from a stamp from Gina K.

I think I rambled long enough! Hope you will consider joining the team and I at Seize the Birthday…we would love to have you! Nanc’

Supplies: Oxide inks,  MFT Stitched rectangles, stitched banners and PI-, Sentiment is Verve, Paintbrush is Paper Smooches, circles-Gna K.
