Please leave us a little lovin' in our comments to entice us to create for you every month! *√ú*


My card today was inspired by a sketch challenge over at My Favorite Things.  All products are from Close to my Heart.  The Stamp Set is called Fabulous You, The paper packs I used are Avonlea and Clementine. Both of these papers are being retired July 31st. So, if you love them, pick up on them while you can. These are two of my favorite papers and I hate to see them go.

The bird and flowers were stamped & fussy cut twice and layered with foam tape.

The images were colored in with our exclusive alcohol markers in the colors of Sorbet, Juniper and Whisper.

There is a strip of Slate Polka Dot Washi Tape across the bottom. 

This is one of my June Club/Class cards so make sure you sign up for this month's class.

Now hop on over to Stephanie's Blog and see what fabulous eye candy she has for you.

Your card is so pretty! I love the color combinations. I didn't love the bird stamp that you used when I saw it in the book, but you may have changed my mind! :)

Nancy, your card is beautiful! I love the washi tape addition and the colors you used. :)

Nancy,
I love the Avonlea paper with the Clementine paper.
I never thought of putting the two together.

Just BEAUTIFUL Nancy!!! But I wouldn't expect anything less :)...LOVE the mixture of paper packs, and you have now made me realize that washi tape doesn't have to be on "rustic" creations. :) Love, love!! Thanks for sharing...and hoping your arm is continuing to recover!! :)

Nancy this is just so beautiful as always! Just like Nora Roberts couldn't tell a bad story you could never make anything less than a gorgeous and inspirational card. Every card you make is beautifully detailed and seems to have all the right special touches. You inspire me to do better and I am so proud to be in this blog with you.
