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

Hello Friends,  It’s already Thursday and time for our next Topping at Seize the Birthday! What we have for you this time, is to use Ocean Colors on your card and or project.

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.

Life is Meant to Be Enjoyed…

Hello Friends,  I took sometime a few days ago and took a break from punching out boocoose wedding pieces and made this card for the challenge over at Simon Says Monday Challenge.  Their challenge theme was Take a Vacation. I got out the perfect stamp set from MFT-Fun in the Sun….. which most definitely screams vacation to me. I wanted to practice my Copic coloring but I chickened out as I am not very good at it, and went with my faithful Prisma Colored pencils.  I also played with my new Oxide Inks which I adore!  I have used them a lot lately and those projects are forth coming.  I can’t take credit for this adorable layout as I cased a card that you will find HERE!

I hope you are having a terrific day! Nanc’

Something Sweet!

DSC_0171

Hello Everyone, We have a fun topping for you this time around over at Seize the Birthday! The topping is something Sweet!  Easy and delicious …huh?  This card came together rather quickly once I found this great DP in my stash. My cupcake has this awesome sprinkle glitter on it ( it’s one of those things you find in the bottom of your craft box, and it’s amazing, and you know you will never be able to find it again ) it almost looks good enough to eat!  I have used many different companies on my card, I tend to do that a lot! Let me know if you have any questions about what is what!

You MUST come on over to STB and check out the DT’s cards…They are all fabulous!

School is nearly out and I have a three day weekend ahead of me! Yippee! Take care, Nanc’

You Make Life Magical…

Hello Friends, It’s time again for another fun challenge over at Seize the Birthday! The topping for this go around is Creatures or Animals.  I will say that this MFT stamp set inspired my topping idea! Aren’t these dragons just the cutest?  My family and I have a thing for dragons. I will be saving this card for my son’s birthday for sure! He will love it even if he’s 25. LOL Over at STB we have a new Surprise Party Guest joining us…her name is Cathy Roffey. Also, one of our fabulous DT members is also back with us!  Yippee! Welcome Back Patti! I am over the top excited that you are back!  Okay, about my card….I colored this cute little images with my Prisma colored pencils and the clouds are from Lawn Fawn.  I use the negative pieces from my MFT rectangle scallops for the double frame.  Come on by STB and check out the amazing cards from the entire team and consider joining us!

I so appreciate all your visits,  Happy Stamping! Nanc’
