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


Sunset at JUGS

We have a gorgeous picture for your inspiration at Just Us Girls today. I can attest that our sunsets have been pretty magnificent as of late and starting next week they are supposed to be getting even more intense due to the Saharan Dust Plume that is headed towards the US.  We shall see if they look as good as they predict. This photo couldn’t have come at a more perfect time.

I did a quick watercolor background on my card and the silhouette palm tree is from MFT.

I hope you will be inspired to come over to JUGS and check out what the team did with this picture and while you are there join us. Before I go I would like to thank Mugdha for being with us this month.  We really enjoyed your creativity and amazing cards and hope you will come back again soon.

I am also linking my card up over at TGIF Challenge where they have a summer vibe challenge going on.  Nothing screams summer to me than gorgeous sunsets.

Take care, Nanc’



Papercraft Star Challenge


Happy Sunday,

I have a brand “New to Me”  Challenge site that I came across as I was

surfing the blogosphere the other day.

 It is called Papercraft Star.


They are celebrating there 3rd year and a new look and have

a beautiful inspiration photo challenge that really caught my eye!

Here is the fabulous photo:


They also are giving away some Blog candy just for commenting….that’s awesome!!!

Here is my card followed by some step by step photos of the process!

The ink is a mixture of Stampin Up, Colorbox and Studio G.

It was done on Glossy Stampin Up card stock.






Here is where I made a big mistake and put my sponge in the

wrong ink pad…..I was so mad and might have said a bad word.

( I don’t recall) wink wink!

I forgot to take the photo of the one blue blob on my card…

so here is what I started to do to fix it!



So hubby suggested that I try to put some more orange over the clouds

and of course that turned them a little muddy! ( ones on the right)

Thanks anyways Honey!  He said, ” I was afraid of that.”

Never fear…I have a plan to cover them up! 🙂


I found these rub-ons in my odds and ends bin!  Love them!

The Meet Me Here was stamped the rest are rub-ons.

I thought the torn paper worked well as sand….haven’t done that in Forever!!!

Gosh I wish I had a shell of some sort to put on that twine!

And I live in Florida!  Ha Ha!



Hope you have a great rest of your day!

I so appreciate you stoppin’ in to visit!

Things will be quiet around here until next weekend!

See you then!
