Sending You a Tweet Hello

I have been under the weather for the past week but thankfully woke up this morning feeling a bit more human. Hubby went golfing and I decided to spend a nice quiet Sunday joining the fun over at MFT’s Color Challenge and Freshly Made Sketches.  My dear friend Barbara got me this great MFT stamp set (A Tweet Hello) a while ago and it’s been patiently waiting for me to break the seal.  Because of the size of these cute little birdies, I thought I better stick with my Prisma Colored Pencils instead of my Copics for more control. I actually made two cards today using this set, but you will have to wait for a future post to see the other one. I don’t think you can really see but I have faint coral clouds in the background made with my MFT Cloud stencil too. The leaves are a die from Verve, the flowers are MFT, and I made the banners myself.

Thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate your visits.  Hope you enjoy your holiday! Nanc’

Thinking of You…

Hello,  Hope your day is off to a great start! Today’s card for Just Us Girls is inspired by both an Inspiration photo and a CASE of one of my previous cards but in different colors.  The card is a mix of Verve stamps, Oxide inks and a stencil, SU punch, and some heat embossing on both the border hearts and the butterfly too. You must come check out the rest of the team’s cards over at JUGS, everyone did a really fabulous job!

Before I go I would like to say a BIG thanks to Eva for being such a Stupendous guest!  Hope to see you in the gallery at JUGS!

Take care, Nanc’

hi there…

Hello, We have a photo for you to pick your colors from this week at Just Us Girls.  I chose green, light purple, and a very dark purple. The stamp is an old Papertry Ink set that I have nearly forgotten I even owned. The fun paper beneath my colored image was made with a stencil, Oxide Inks and baby wipes.  I colored my image with Prismas.

I am also linking my card up over at CAS Mix it Up Card Challenge where they asked us to use the Baby Wipe, Stamping and your choice.  My choice was coloring.

Come check out how the rest of the team and our guest was inspired… and join us! Nanc’

With Much Love….

Hello, I hope your day is off to a good start! It’s Color Week at Just Us Girls and Maria has a happy color palette for you to try! I just want to clarify that my hibiscus are in fact a deep orange and not red as they appear to be. I used two different colors of orange for this card. They actually match my background paper nearly perfect in real life. I really love this set from Stampin Up called Tropical Chic, it always stamps so well and never disappoints!

I am off to have lunch with some stamping friends today! Hope you all are doing something fun too! If not, happy stamping! nanc’

You are Loved!

Hello,  Hope you are having a great day! Angie is our hostess this week at Just Us Girls and she came up with a very fun and unique Trend Challenge for us this week. It’s called off the edge. I wish I would have thought of it! Great job Angie! My SU flowers were made out of alcohol inks, the leaves are a SU punch, tag is Verve, and the sentiment is from SSS.  I am pretty happy with the way this card came together and so quickly at that.  As you can tell, I cut down my card base a bit so that my tag could hang off the edge.

So let your imagination go and join us this week!  Nanc’

Life is Meant…

Hello,  We have a great celebratory photo this week at Just Us Girls and I decided to step out of the box and get inspired by colors instead. The blue and green balloons spoke to me initially when I saw this photo and I thought water, then as I thought a bit harder I thought beach ball colors…and Whalla….the card was born! LOL. Not sure how to spell Whalla.  Hopefully, you get the gest!

Everything you see here is from MFT…besides some of the paper. I sponged the light blue and colored her with Prismas.

Please come check out the rest of the team’s work and our guest Greta and join us! Nanc’

I Miss You Already

Hello,  I am your hostess this week at Just Us Girls and it’s Color Week.  I have a Spring-like Color palette for you all that are dealing with snow in hopes that it will warm you up a bit, and remind you that eventually it will feel like Spring! We have been having really hot temperatures here in Florida and appears that we may skip Spring altogether. 😦

Today’s card is a mix of MFT and SU. I just adore these MFT elephants and it was time to get them out and play with them again.  I did some emboss resist and didn’t worry too much about my ink blending and am rather happy with the results.  The Ele, florals, and butterflies are MFT. The Ele was colored with Prismas and the sentiment is from SU.

I sure hope you will consider coming over to JUGS and joining us this week!  Who knows you may even become our Chic of the Week!

See you there!  Nanc’

Hugs!

Hello,  Today over at Just Us Girls we have a challenge to use a Background stamp somewhere on your card and or project.  I decided to also make a background with a smaller leaf SU stamp (on the pink cardstock) and then used my script background stamp (on my green piece of cardstock).  I just love this stamp set from SU. It is one of my all-time favorite wooden block stamps that always seems to be my go too with great results. I colored the flowers with my Copics and a bit of colored pencil. I am still a work in progress that is for sure. The HUGS die from Lawn Fawn is cut from shiny silver cardstock.

TFChallenge#30I am also linking my card up over at the Flower Challenge where it’s Anything Goes

I hope you have a wonderful day and will consider stopping on over at JUGS and joining us!  Nanc’

You are Amazing….

Hello, Today’s card is something that has been keeping me up at night. LOL Today, I finally put it together. It’s quite a mix of different stamp sets along with different challenges.  The inspiration all started when I stumbled across Laurie’s Win it Wednesday challenge over at Papertrey Ink. She asked us to use our favorite color.  That wasn’t too hard, as I gravitate to green quite often, as it’s the largest folder of scraps I have in my scrap binder, and I love using Black card bases as well! Then I realized that Time Out Challenges was looking for something Retro this week, and finally over at Inspirational Challenge the word is TEXT.  So there you have it a THREEFER!! LOL See why it was keeping me awake. LOL

Here is a quick reference to my supplies: Bo Bunny DP, SU- Text You Later and Thoughtful Banners, telephone is from Papertrey Ink, the Paper die cut is from Paper Smooches.

I so appreciate your visits as of late.

Take care and happy stamping,  Nanc’

You Make Me Smile…

Hello,  Hope you are having a great day! We have a fun Color Combo for you this week at Just Us Girls. Pink, Red and White!  My card came together very quickly! I love this new set from SU…it’s called wishing You Well. The sentiment is also from SU and comes from the Colorful Season’s set. Both rectangles are MFT.  Please come on over to JUGS and join us!  We would love to have you!

I really appreciate all of your visits and your sweet comments.

Take care, Nanc’
