Thankful!

Hello Friends,  It’s Wedding Day!  I can’t believe it, it came so quickly!  I guess that’s what happens when you are incredibly busy!  The word of the week at JUGS is perfect for how I am feeling this morning!  Thankful!  Now, I will be even more thankful if all goes well…which I have no reason to believe it won’t!  The rehearsal dinner last night was a HUGE success!  We had 61 people and I think everyone really enjoyed themselves.

Now please excuse my somewhat ugly card today, I just had to much going on to give it my full attention.

Take care and come by Just Us Girls and help us welcome our new Guest for the month….Trina. I have linked up her blog for you! She is uber talented!!  Welcome Trina…I am super excited to have you!

Take care,  Nanc’

Details:  SU products and Nuvo drops.

Screen Shot 2016-02-06 at 12.58.52 PMHello friends,  I am the hostess this week over at Just Us Girls and I just so happen to have picked out a beach photo, so if this card looks similar to my last post it was made the same day.  I had such a good time creating my beach scene with my SU watercolor brush for my Seize the Birthday post that I just couldn’t put it away quite yet. I don’t own any shell stamps or sea creatures, (I know the horror and I live in Florida) and then I remembered a scrapbook page I created eons ago that I used punches on to create my sea creatures.  I got out my scrapbook to locate that page that I was thinking of, and may have gotten sidetracked for awhile and shed a few tears as my baby is not 6 anymore, and recreated my sea creatures.  I know the proportions are a little off, but I think that’s okay.  I again used some white foam to pop up my center shape.  Hope you decide to join me and my fabulous team for our Photo Inspiration at Just Us Girls.  Doesn’t that beach cake look amazing?  Enjoy, Nanc’

I Appreciate the Love and a Card too!

Hi Friends,

Before I post my card I want to say THANK YOU for all the love

and patience you have shown me as of late.

You all were so kind when I posted some personal stuff here on my blog

and I really appreciate it!  HUGS to each one of you!  I love my blogosphere friends!!

 Also, I am back to work and you know what that means…pure utter exhaustion!

Till this school year gets off the ground, it maybe rather quiet for a week or so!

Hang with me and don’t give up! PLEASEEEEEE!

Okay,  It’s time for an Anything Goes challenge over at Seize the Birthday

and here is what I have done this week!

My deepest apologies for the photos…I did something to the settings of my camera

and can’t figure out how to fix it! 😦

This is a type of tri-fold card and not to hard to do!   If you have any questions please let me know.

I started this card at my Stampin Up club and finished it when I got home so

that I could make a few changes!  So the idea was not mine, but my talented

SU Demonstrator.

The sentiment on the outside is from Verve and the one on the insides are

Stampin Up and something I picked up at Michaels.

My heart border on the front is a new Verve Die….Love it!

Now head on over to Seize the Birthday and join us…

hope to see you there!

Before I go WordPress has changed their formatting and I don’t like it one bit!

So I hope this looks good and posts on time as I can’t quite figure it out as of yet,

Or if you got an email last night that I posted something new my deepest apologies!

So frustrating!  GRRRRRRRR!!!

Inspiration time over at JUGS~

Hello friends,

School is back in session and this Chic is wiped out!

 It’s going to take me a couple of weeks to get back to this

5 days a week and then some… work sort of thing!

Plus, my son left for college again on Wednesday

so it’s back to that empty nest feeling again.

Let me just say, I don’t like it very much at all!!

 Hubby and I were spoiled this summer having Ty

here since the middle of May.  SIGH!!!

Anyhoo, speaking of school!

 Tangii has a great inspiration photo for us this week over at JUGS!

This is what I did with it!

One of my teacher’s at school gave me this awesome sticker set last year

because she knew I loved to scrapbook.

I found it the other day as I was setting up my room

and thought this would be perfect for my card for JUGS!

So, I have a mixture of stamps, die cuts, and ink on this card.

I must admit I felt as if I was cheating using those stickers!

The paper is a stamp from Verve.  The sentiment is SU.

I distressed the card stock, the apple and the stem a little bit,

but looks as if I should have done more!  I thought the white pen

was a nice touch at the end!….and of course a ribbon!

I am also linking this up to the back to school challenge over at

The Friday Mashup!

Sure hope you join us this week over at Just Us Girls for our

Inpsiration Photo Challenge!

Here are the links to my fellow teammates blogs to

help get you started with some inspiration!

A little bit more LOVE…

I know Valentine’s Day has come and gone

and you thought you had seen the last of the HEARTS all

over the place, well…..you almost have! I saved one of my special creations

 for this week on purpose so that I may share it here and @ the Crafty Card Gallery.

 I can not take credit for the idea behind this Valentine Shadow box.

That goes to Debbie Moczek my Fabulous Stampin Up Consultant.

 The only thing I can take credit for is the work and the arrangement of the squares.

 Although, I did make a few of my squares different then the original design.

Sorry for the glare on the photo!

Shadow box

 This was sooooo much fun to put together and she made it so easy too!

I gave it to my dear hubby for Valentine’s Day and

 then asked him if I could please hang it up in my studio!  LOL

 I know…what an Indian giver……

but, I thought it would look really nice in there!

Tee Hee!

 Details:

All products used were Stampin Up!

 If you have any questions at all…don’t hesitate to ask!

Have a remarkable day!

Thankful!

I trust you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are enjoying the rest of your weekend with your family and or friends. My anticipation of having Thanksgiving without my nephew for the first time since his passing this summer turned out better than expected. My sister is so much stronger than I could ever imagine and she inspires me each and every day. We had a really nice visit and had lots of really good conversation while she was here. I am thankful for her and the rest of my siblings. And of course very thankful for my hubby and my son! 🙂
Now here are the cards I got to make on Wednesday, since we had the day off from school and it was raining. It felt good to have time to be creative again.

Have a blessed rest of your weekend!

Nancy
