New Home

Hello, I am back today with a card for The Paper Players where it’s CAS week and the theme Laurie chose is House. The Designers have a fabulous array of cards over there that you definitely should check out.

Card Details: The background was made with an MFT cloud stencil and a rolling hills stencil that I cut out of acetate and just kept moving to a different spot as I sponged to resemble hills. I was going to use my Lawn Fawn hills as my stencil, but they are stitched and they come out all dotted when you ink them up. LOL The houses are from Taylored Expressions and are a border die that I cut apart. I just paper-pieced my focal house in color and am pretending that Mickey Mouse lives there. It’s his colors, am I right? The sentiment is from MFT.

Let me just say that I spent more time looking for the card that inspired me to make this card than it took me to make the card itself. LOL I came up empty-handed. Just so you know I gave it a valiant effort and it definitely sparked my inspiration. I would love to give credit to the designer if I could.

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting, Nanc’

Houses

Hello,  Seems like forever since I posted last as the last few weeks were pre-scheduled posts.  This is me coming at you LIVE…LOL.  I am back from my second trip, this one was to California to visit my son and daughter in law.  They spoiled Dave and I rotten and we got to see quite a lot. I am still reeling from all the fun we had and saying goodbye is always the tough part.  I always cry quite a lot on the plane ride home (lack of sleep doesn’t help) and then for a few days off and on, but now that I am back to work, back to a routine, I have sucked it up and I am good to go. LOL. Until next time anyway.

Today’s card is for Just Us Girls and the word is Houses.  It just so happens that I needed a Congrats on your new home card for my nephew, so the timing was perfect. Here are a few details….First, I took my Oxide inks and blended my background, next I cut out the house die (from Taylored Expressions), sun and clouds( from Lawn Fawn) and the rectangle frame and sentiment(from SU.) Put it all together and I was done.

Hope you will come by JUGS and check out what my talented team and our new Guest Christine Perez have done as well.  Welcome Christine, we are very glad to have you with us!

Below are a couple pics from our trip.  Tyler surprised us for our 27th Anniversary and took us to see Hamilton.  It was sensational!!  The ice cream picture was also in San Fran.

Take care, Nanc’
