Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!


Dancin’ St. Nick

Hello, I am back today with a Christmas card using Spellbinders Dancin’ St. Nick. When I knew I wanted to make a Christmas card I came across this fun piece of snowflake DSP that I wanted to use. Then I thought, why not make Santa in a non-traditional color? What do you think? Have I broken any Christmas rules? LOL Not sure I won over the hubster, but I kinda like him.

Here are his legs moving.

I am linking up with three challenges; Time Out, Happy Little Stampers Christmas, and Peace on Earth Christmas.

Card Details: St. Nick was die-cut and colored with a few Copics to give him some life-like features. Santa’s legs can move with a stack of two small dimensionals to give the body some clearance to help the legs swing. I think the pops of silver really made the card come to life. The Snowflakes are from the Spellbinder’s Noel set. I made the snowbanks with white paper and a very old cutting device from Creative Memories.

I certainly appreciate you checking in on me and I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Nanc’


A Little JOY!

I am linking up with 2 challenges today! First, Less is More (Sparkle and Matte) and Secondly, Happy Little Stampers (Anything Goes with an option of Twinkle.) I made a few cards similar to these last year for the store and they sold, so I thought I would try again.  The card definitely “Sparkles” in real life and the DP has more of a matte finish.

Card details: The JOY is from MFT, the snowflakes are from Memory Box. The fun DP is from anyone’s guess.(I just love it and have cut off any recollection of who made it.) I made the victorian scallop with my Fiskers cutter.

Hope you are having a fabulous day, Nanc’




Hello, I have another CAS Christmas card for you, that was so much fun, and simple to make.  I think I will be making a few more of these before the holidays are over.  I am linking this fun card up over at the CASology blog where the word is North, and Inkspirational blog where it’s Anything Goes Christmas. The JOY die set is MFT. Have a joyful day! Nanc’


And then there were 3

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR: Ispy Sketches, Casual Fridays, Deconstructed Jen and Dynamic Duos!

With Thanksgiving right around the corner and those cards have been received (I Hope). I thought it was time to jump right into Winter Wishes!  Since most of the country is feeling the cold by now, I thought it would be fun to break out the snowflakes.  Here in Florida the 7 day forecast is absolutely amazing. Lows in the mid 50’s and high’s in the mid 70’s!   And an added bonus is that they gave us the entire week off of school this year for Thanksgiving Break instead of the typical 3 days!  WooHOO!  And the icing on the cake is my son Tyler will be home TONIGHT!  It’s been almost 6 months since he has been in this house!  He’s beyond excited and so are we!  Okay, you didn’t stop by my blog to hear about the weather, my time off work,  or my personal life……so let’s get on with it!

Today’s color palette was inspired by The Dynamic Duos.  I intended on making 1 card with the colors they had selected and ended up making 3, but each slightly different.  The first one is the one I am linking up to their blog entries for this week, cause it’s the only one that I actually incorporated black in.  The sketch layout is for Ispy Sketches number 42.

The next card is for the Deconstructed sketch No. 78.  I haven’t had as much opportunity lately to play along with them, and feel like I have been missing something special.  So glad I didn’t miss this one!  It’s also being entered in the Casual Friday’s Winter Blues Challenge.   Love those Girl Fridays!

And the last card was inspired by all of the rest and was made for no in particular challenge just for me! LOL  Isn’t that Polar Bear so cute!

Hope you liked them!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving and I feel very blessed to have you all here following me!  Thank you so much!

If you don’t hear from me over the next few days….. I am enjoying some time off with my son!   One Happy Girl!

Happy New Year…

….from our house to yours! That’s what the inside of the card reads. Hope you have a wonderful New Year’s Eve, whatever you decide to do and I hope 2010 greets you with many blessings! GTG! Need to go finish getting ready for our guests!

My New Year’s resolution this year is…. 1. Not to make the make the same resolution I always do- to get in shape! ( cause that’s not going to happen):)
2. To try and get more current on my scrapbooks!

How fortunate I am!

Wow what a christmas!! My son surprised me this year with a Cuttlebug and my Hubby got me a new Camera! I was so excited and felt very spoiled! LOL I have wanted a Cuttlebug for what seems like forever! Also, my camera died about 1 year ago and I was using my sons all the time! I got to play yesterday with my new toys, and then I couldn’t sleep last night because I have some Christmas money to spend and I was trying to figure out what embossing folders I should buy. Stamp Tv is having an amazing end of the year gift! You don’t want to miss it!!I am very Happy today! Anyways I hope your Christmas was as fabulous as mine! I failed to mention all the quality time I have spent with my family and you can’t put a price on that!
By the way inside the one card it says… I thank God for Snowflakes …. and friends like you!

Enjoy your Sunday! Thanks for looking!
