A Birdy Birthday!

Hello Friends,  My life is back to somewhat “normal” and I am sure happy about that! If I never see another storm like Irma…. it will be way too soon!  However, we surely dodged a major bullet this time around and for that I am forever grateful! My heart goes out to all that have been impacted by all the horrific storms, and fires over these past few months around the world.  It sure makes me appreciate the small inconvenience of no power and no AC over the last 9 days. Onto a happier subject!  Today over at Just Us Girls it’s Photo Week and as soon as I saw the pic Ina picked out, I knew what stamp set I was going to use.  It’s from Darcie’s.com.  Cutting out a half circle with a die was rather tricky. Here is the card that inspired me! The background was made with Oxide inks and the bird was colored with Colored Pencil.

Please come by Just Us Girls and check out what the team and our guest Linda has done!  Hope to see you in our gallery too! Hugs, Nanc’

Sending Hugs!

 

Hello friends, I’m writing this post on my phone which is not something I’m use to at all!  I have no power at home still…thanks to Hurricane Irma, but happy to see that I must have suspected this as my post was started with my photo already uploaded!

Please come by Just Us Girls and check out the rest of the cards from my awesome team and join us!

Hugs and thanks for all the love and well wishes… this too will pass and I’ll hopefully be back up and running soon!  Nanc’

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.

Tic Tac Toe Challenge!

 

 

Hello Friends,  I thought I would take a break from Wedding party favors and play along with a new (to me) challenge site I stumbled upon the other day. It’s called Tic Tac Toe Challenge and they have two teams, the X’s and the O’s.  How cute and clever is that! The row I chose to play along with is the middle row; pattern paper, flower and coloring. The stamps set is one from SU that I absolutely adore and will never go out of style!

If you have not heard of this challenge site, go check it out…you will be glad you did! I sure was!  I got to get back to my pillow boxes!  Take care, Nanc’

Anything Goes at Seize the Birthday!

Hello Friends,  I hope you are having a great week so far! It sure seems to be flying by for me! It’s time for our Anything Goes Challenge at Seize the Birthday!  This card came together very quickly, and yet with minimal effort I think it looks pretty good! Love those candle dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  The sentiment is from Close to My Heart and the rectangle scallops are from MFT.

I would love to have you join us sometime over the next two weeks at STB.  All you have to do is make a Birthday card and or Project!  Take care,  Nanc’

Hello Friends,  I am running late today so I am going to make this short and sweet!

The fabulous sentiment and Heart die are from Stampin Up, and the hearts are MFT.

Shower is the Word

Hello Friends, It’s Word week at Just Us Girls and the word is Shower.  As you can tell from the card above, I went with Baby Shower. I actually made 4 of these cards, two girls and two boys.  They are fast and fun to do.  The DP is from Stampin Up and I have been using it so sparingly, as I love it so much and it’s no longer available. The boat and sentiment are from Verve! The circle dies are either Nestabilities or SU.

Please come on over to JUGS and check out the rest of the teams cards and while you are there help us welcome our new Guest-Darnell!  She is one of the funniest and kindest ladies in blog land!! If you are not familiar with her you MUST visit her blog! I have it linked for you! We are so lucky to have her with us this month!  Take care, Nanc’

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

Glenda and I

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’
