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


Case a Designer

Hello, Today over at Just Us Girls Ina has a terrific idea for us for Wild Card Week. What she wants us to do is CASE a Designer. I just loved this idea and could have picked any one of my teammates or anyone out in blog-land for that matter to CASE, as there are so many fabulous cardmakers out there. But, a few weeks ago I was at fellow DT member Carol Mc’s house and we were crafting together and I knew I wanted to play with one of her stamp sets after I saw her make the card below! It worked out perfectly! This card was so much fun to put together.

HERE is a link to Carol’s card

Card Details: Greetery dies and stencil. Oxide Inks for the background.

Hope you will come on over to Just Us Girls and pick a designer to CASE and play along. Also, before I go, I want to thank Fran for being such a fabulous guest with us this past month. We have certainly enjoyed having you.

Take care, Nanc’


Sunshine at JUGS!

Hello, I am going to make this quick today! Over at Just Us Girls, the word we have for you this week is Sunshine.  We haven’t seen much of that here in Flordia these last few days, but that is okay as it keeps the temperatures a little more bearable and more time to craft. That is the only way I can cope with the world’s problems.  I have an inside source to the Hospitals and the number of COVID cases are rising but we aren’t hearing much about that on our local news anymore.  So hubby and I are going to maintain our course and not change a thing.  So even though we have moved to Phase 2, just essential outings for this family for now!

Card Details: I have a huge variety of companies on my card so if you have any questions just ask.

Before I go I would like to welcome Mugdha our June Guest Designer she will be joining us all month long.  The girls and I are really excited to have you with us, Mugdha.  I hope you will enjoy it too!

Take care of one another, Nanc’


Summer Fun

DSC_0255Hello Friends,  My card this time has nothing to do with rain and everything to do with what Summer is suppose to look like.  I sure hope the weather man has it right, as the rest of this week we are suppose to actually start looking like the sunshine state once again.  Today’s card is a little on the unusual side but will make more sense when you scroll down and see how well it matches up with the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.  I am also linking it up to Stamp TV’s Make it Monday Summer Challenge hosted by my sweet friend Sharyn.  The sentiment is from Verve’s Take Note set and the sandcastle is something I picked up at a stamp store in Lakeland.  Images colored with Spectrum Noir pens, Lawn fawn clouds and some glitter sand too! I so appreciate you stopping by!

Have a sandsational day! Nanc’


STV Challenge


Hip Hip Hooray….summer is on it’s way!

This card was tough to put together….it was just one of those days when nothing you tried quite worked exactly liked you had planned.

I found myself taping and glueing and then taking it apart, ripping it and then trying to do it again…with the same results!

I am sure you have had one of those days before….at least I hope so!

I almost tossed the entire card, but refrained so here it is!

Don’t look to closely….major flaws everywhere!

Beach Ball was made by hand!  Boy was it tough cutting out that Bikini top! LOL



This card, as unsatisfied as I may be with it…. is still going to be linked up over at Fusion this week!

I decided to Fuse the challenge this week!

Although, I may have no flowers on my card…I went with the color scheme…along with the Sketch!

If you haven’t heard of this site…I highly recommend it!

So unique and fresh and loaded with talent…

both by the Design Team and the players!

Summer Time

Happy Saturday, I have a fun summer card for you today that I designed based on a “sketch” challenge over at ispy sketches and a “Summer” challenge over at The Pink Elephant. I have had these cute little penguins since before I started really getting into stamping and thought it was past time for them to get inky again. I used my prisma colored pencils to color them.

They scream summer with their little bathing suits on!  They are soooo cute!

Well I guess it’s time to get back to the Olympics. 🙂

Have a great rest of the weekend!
