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


Sip Sip Hooray

Hello, I know my blog has been rather quiet but still trying to play catch up on life since returning from Vacation. It’s already Thursday and time for the next Topping at Seize the Birthday! Jules is our fabulous hostess and she has picked a topping that I really liked. She has asked us to Stripe it Up. For my card, I went with a bit of a subtle stripe on my background and did stripes of colors.

Card Details: Die set is from Tim Holtz-Happy Hour, the greeting is MFT, and the background stencil is Heffy Doodle. Such a fun and happy card.

Make sure you come on over to STB and check out the fabulous cards by our DT and guest Deepti, I know you will be inspired. I certainly was!

Take care and do something today that brings you JOY!, Nanc’


Have yourself a…

Hello, I hope you are doing well! How’s the shopping coming? Me not so well! I hope to get going on it this week sometime. I have a few things bought for my DIL, but that is about it. It gets harder and harder the older they get. Plus when they don’t live nearby it’s hard to know what they have and don’t have.

Today’s card has become one of my favs of the season for sure. Speaking of cards, those are done and ready to mail! YAY! I ordered stamps on-line for the first time, since we needed so many, and they haven’t arrived yet! I thought it would be wise since buying 200 stamps was going to save me 26.00. I hope they arrive soon!

I am linking up with 3 challenges. First and foremost, the Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge where the theme is Holiday/Christmas and over at Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge with an option of Toys. I think some of my miniatures look a lot like toys. I love the mood boards from the Peace on Earth Christmas Challenge too. My card checks off all of the boxes on there as well.

Happy Holidays/Christmas

Card Details: This card was a lot of work to cut out but so relaxing to piece together. The mini dies are new and from Simon Says Stamps-Tim Holtz and called-Christmas Minis, Greeting and stitched squares are from Stampin Up.

Take care and happy holiday season, Nanc’
